    • Constitution Day 2016 - observance on Feb. 1?

      Mexico Yesterday

      We arrive in Cancun on Feb. 5 and I just discovered that it's Constitution Day. But the information at and Wikipedia says that it is observed on the first Monday in February regardless of which day is the actual holiday. Does that mean businesses are open as usual on Friday Feb. 5, 2016? I was planning to get a SIM card at Movistar right after we got off the plane. Thanks!

    • Good travel guide books for Mayan sites?

      Mexico Nov 9, 2015 at 3:39 PM

      We are planning a 2 week road trip to see Mayan Archaeological sites Central and Southern Mexico. Our basic plan is to fly into Oxaca and fly out of Cancun. I did some preliminary research based on this google map:

      I was looking on Amazon to buy a good guide book but most of the usual suspects (lonely planet, rogue etc) have pretty mediocre reviews. Most of the guide books seem to cater to "beach/resort" crowd. Do you guys recommend any specific guide book(s) which provide details about Mayan sites?

      I already placed an order for An Archaeological Guide to Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula by Joyce Kelly but I am also looking to buy something more recent for general road tripping and accommodation planning.

      I'm taking a group of 15 down to Rosarito for a work trip. We will mostly be in the hotel for meetings, but will be getting out for dinner and an activity per day. What is the best transportation for this? Are their taxi services?

      we are leaving Chichen Itza to drive to Rio lagartos on new years day. Would it be correct to assume that everyone will be at home and all the shops and restaurants will be closed? At what time will things start to open? Will the cenotes in and around town be open? Have I picked the worst day of the year to visit?

      Looking for help buying real estate in Villadolid

      by denislarsen Online Now May 24, 2005 at 1:16 PM

      I've visited Villadolid a number of times, stopping there for a meal on my way to Merida. Last weekend, a friend and I spent two days just wandering around, looking at various neighborhoods. I'd like to actually start looking at houses with the objective to purchase (and restore, if necessary) an old, colonial house to start a combination "hammock and breakfast"..well, a bed and breakfast and spa. Does anyone have any contacts in the real estate world in Villadolid (if such a world actually exists)? Houses had "for sale" painted on them with phone numbers in Merida, but that makes it almost impossible to see anything over during a weekend visit. Any suggestions? Personal contacts?
      Thanks for any help or leads you can give me.
      Hasta pronto.
