    • Late crossing to Holbox

      Isla Holbox Feb 14, 2015 at 10:17 AM

      Hi there - could anyone let me know if it will be possible to make a late crossing to Holbox.
      Our flight arrives into Cancun at 19:00, so we expect to arrive into Chiquila at about 23:00, I've read on a few forums that you can pay a local fisherman to take you across. Is this safe and how readily available will they be? We are travelling mid November. I know people will say stay the night in Cancun and make the trip the next day, but we are very keen just to get to the island as our time there will be short and we don't want to waste another day travelling.

      any help would be appreciated.

      thanks

      I will be studying in Guanajuato for a semester next January. I will need to find an apartment in the city that is close enough to the university. I wanted to know what I should expect to pay for a one bedroom furnished apartment and the best place to search for them. Also, is the city small enough that location does not really matter (in terms of walking to school)?

    • Driving/Renting a Car in the Yucatan at Night

      Estado de Quintana Roo Feb 17, 2015 at 9:34 AM

      Is it safe to drive around the Yucatan (Cancun to Valladolid, to Tulum, to Akumal, and back) at night? Our flights get in very late at night (around midnight) and leave very early in the morning (around 7am). We'd love to avoid having to stay in a hotel at the airport, but don't know if that's feasible as I've heard the roads are not very well lit and thus signs would be hard to follow--and we've never driven there before. We would plan on renting a car.

      Speaking of which--does anyone have any good recommendations for the best/cheapest company to rent a car from at the Cancun airport? I've read that prices that American car rental companies quote online are only that cheap b/c they don't include the required insurance that you have to purchase. Any car rental advice would be great. Thanks!

    • Renting a car for a week?

      Isla Cozumel Feb 4, 2015 at 11:15 AM

      Hi, my family and I are planning to travel to Cozumel for a week long trip. We are looking into transportation options for our stay.

      I understand there are plenty of taxis. However, we plan to make a trip around the Island of Cozumel visiting various sites including sites that are on the other side of the island which requires at least an hour commute or more.

      Many of the tours you can book cost over $100US and we think that renting a car could be a better option for us and save us money. Renting a car would allow us to travel on our own time and pay on our own terms rather then spending hideous amounts just to drive somewhere to get a tour.

      We don't plan to use the car to travel to Chichen Itza or Tulum. We will take tours to those to locations off the island.

      What we would like to know if renting a car is a good idea or not. We have heard it is super dangerous to drive in Cozumel because drivers there show no mercy. We are very nervous about getting into an accident.

      We also have questions regarding car insurance coverage in Mexico since all US policies do not cover out of the country vehicles.

      Please, we need a variety of advice and pros/cons of why or why not.

      We have already visited numerous sites as to why and why not but we are still at a stand still as to whether to depend on a taxi for everything we want to do or make it a do-it-yourself trip on the island.

      For other details that might help to answer our plea for advice, there are 4 of us which taxis may or may not charge per person and the costs will add up.

      Please, any advice from the pros and worldwide travelers!

      Best guided tours?

      Mérida Feb 3, 2015 at 3:55 AM

      I'm going to Mérida at the end of February and I really want to visit Chichen Itza, Uxmal and Celestun. We don't feel like renting a car, so I'm looking for information or reviews on some of the tour operators based in Mérida. Right now, I'm looking at Mayan Ecotours, Ecoturismo Yucatan, and TuriTrans Mérida. Does anyone have experience with any of them? Or perhaps you have another company to recommend?

    • Does Tulum get a lot of Spring Break traffic during early March?

      Tulum Jan 29, 2015 at 11:44 AM

      We would love to visit Tulum, and unfortunately will be traveling during Spring Break in the U.S. (second week of March). Knowing that nearby Cancun is a crazy popular Spring Break destination, we'd really like to know before booking whether or not Tulum is still relatively free of the Spring Break madness, or if there will inevitably be tons of drunk college kids everywhere in the Riviera Maya during the second week of March? We understand Tulum is already a popular tourist destination, but we can deal with the normal tourist traffic, but would really prefer to avoid the Spring Break crowd. Any wisdom?

    • driving from brownsville to veracruz

      by fivecents Online Now Dec 5, 2008 at 5:34 AM

      I am planning on driving to Veracruz from Brownsville, TX in a couple of weeks. Has anyone driven it lately? Is it best to drive to Cuidad Victoria on the toll road or cut off on 180 before you get there. Also is it best to go to Tihuatlan and then over to the toll road that goes around Poza Rica versus staying on 180 into Tuxpam and picking up the toll road there? Any info on this coastal route will be helpful.
