      Things to do in Cancun with a Toddler

      Cancún Mar 10, 2015 at 1:49 PM

      I saw a previous posting about "excursions with a baby" but I am hoping Cancun experts will be able to weigh in on some activities we are considering with our toddler. We are going to Cancun for 5 days (before heading to Tulum for a wedding). Some things we have thought about doing with our son who will be 20 months are:

      - Isla Mujeres Day Trip, Underwater Museum and Tortugranja
      - Garrafon Natural Reef Park
      - Xcaret
      - Hummer Jungle Tour
      - Marine Turtle Observation
      - Aktun Chen, Akumal
      - Wet n Wild
      - Cancun Interactive Museum
      - Crococun Zoo

      I am wondering if any of these are "tourist traps" worth avoiding, and if something is a must. We plan to do one activity a day as our child is very active and likes to be outdoors doing something.

      Thanks for any insight.

    • Private Excursions vs. Group Excursions to the Mayan Ruins

      Cancún Mar 6, 2015 at 7:57 AM

      Hi, I am going to Cancun soon and I was wondering what kind of tour company to use and looking for some suggestions of trustworthy tours to the Mayan Ruins (Tulum, Coba or Chichen Itza). I see that there are small private minibus tours for what looks to be a similar price as the big group bus tours. I would prefer that way because of the flexibility. My husband and I have been to Cancun 2 times before but our kids haven't and we want them to have a more authentic experience. I speak fluent Spanish if that helps. BTW, I don't want to deal with renting a car.

    • Family of 6 moving to Mexico City- Need advise!

      Mexico City Mar 1, 2015 at 12:24 PM

      Hi all, we recently found out my there is a high likelihood we will be moving to Mexico city for a US Gov job at the Embassy. Though we are extremely excited for the adventure we are also a family of 6 with 4 school age children and I want to gather as much information as possible. We would be living there for 2-5 years. I have been told that many US Embassy employees live in Polanco but that it is a very "plastic" place. Condessa I hear is very nice as well. I want to totally be a part of the city and culture, my husband is Mexican and I am Peruvian/Spanish so it will not be a culture shock to us but I want to make it as easy a transition as possible for our children. I also have been told the children of US embassy employees go to private schools that are very demanding. We have been given a housing allowance up to $3500/usd a month, what type of home will that afford us? And how about vacation spots close by? We like to vacation a lot and would want to take advantage of being so close to Cancun and Acapulco. Any insight as to what to expect for a US family living in Mexico City (specifically US Gov employee) would be so helpful! Thanks in advance!

      Loved Mérida, where to next?

      Mexico Mar 5, 2015 at 2:48 PM

      I just got back from spending an absolutely amazing week in Mérida, and even though I've only been back home for a few days, I'm already thinking about going back to Mexico to see more of the country. So what would be your suggestions for great places to visit in Mexico? I'd rather avoid Mexico City and places filled with all-inclusive resorts such as Playa del Carmen. I hear Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende are nice to visit? I'm looking for safe destinations that are relatively easy to get to. Culture, history and nature (hiking) are my biggest interests, not having access to the beach is not an issue. So, any thoughts?

      Playa La Ropa or Playa La Madera

      by mexicruiser Online Now Aug 2, 2005 at 9:12 PM

      My husband and I are planning to spend a week in Zihuatanejo next Feb/Mar, and are trying to decide whether we should stay in La Ropa or La Madera. We are looking for a quiet peaceful area with nice sandy white beaches, palm trees, a few palapa bars/restaurants, and not too many people. Our budget will allow us between50-$100 per night for a beachfront bungalow/condo/apartment with an ocean view.

      We were concerned that La Ropa might be too far to walk back to from the downtown area at night, or even during the day. Do busses run between the two beaches at night, are taxis affordable?

      We had checked out Bungalows Pacificos website, and it seemed fairly nice and within the budget (only just!). Has anyone stayed there? Any reviews or info on the place? Any help and advice on accommodations,etc would be greatly appreciated as this will be our first visit to this part of Mexico, and we would like it to be a fun and positive visit!

      Please email me with any info, advice, etc at mexicruiser@VTmail.com
