      Traveling to Cancun from Chicago with 4 month old baby- First trip with baby!

      Cancún Jan 15, 2017 at 2:45 PM

      Hi,

      My husband and I will be traveling for the first time with our 4 month old baby. We have been to Cancun before, however, never with a baby! Can you please let me know what things I should be taking with or any tips.. I am nursing the baby, We will be staying at the all inclusive Royalton Riviera Resort.

      1) I am planning on taking a stroller and carseat and baby carrier

      2) Suncreen?? I hear I can't put it on a baby - any tricks besides not taking her out until later afternoon/evening.

      3) Swim suit and flotie???or swim diaper- I was thinking about having her in a flotie with us supervising.

       4) I am assuming we can't really do any excursions or activities?

      5) any tips?

    • Tour questions

      Cancún Jan 4, 2017 at 8:47 PM

      I've done so much research and now I turn to the experts---We want to zip line, ATV, snorkel, cenotes, raft in caves with stalactites and stalagmites. It seems like X-plor has all of this. We love nature. We don't care about tours with food or shows. We also want to swim with dolphins.
      If we do xplor, do we also need to do xcarat? Xelha? What combo tour should we do with xplor?
      We want to snorkel in isla-mujeres. Where can we do that? Where can we rent a golf cart there? What private beach is a must in cancun or isla-mujeres? What is unique to do at night? Thank you in advance!

      How safe is it to drive to roserato from San Diego? I have a 2007 Ford Focus. It would just be my husband and I we are 65 year old.

I just wanted to take a day trip to rosarito and Puerto Nuevo for lobster and come home.
      I was also thinking of riding into Tijuana, but we are a little scared we could be star get because we are older. Please advise.

      Which phone?-stealing

      Mexico Dec 27, 2016 at 2:03 AM

      I apologize in advance if this is a stupid question. Is it safe to take my mobile with me to Mexico? I know that the word "safe" will have everyone jumping. I do actually have two phones- an old Galaxy S3 which is slow and annoying and a new LG which is fast. I am considering travelling with the old one because if it's stolen it's less of a loss, however if I need to use my phone a lot obviously the new one is way more convenient. What are the chances of my new LG getting stolen, or worse, me being held up at gunpoint somewhere...(We are travelling around for 6 weeks, from Yucatan down through Chiapas and up to Mex City)

      Thanks in advance.

    • Safety in Cuernavaca

      by ladykate Online Now May 3, 2010 at 12:46 PM

      Hello, I'll be traveling at the end of this month to Cuernavaca to visit a friend. While there I'll have tons of free time on my own, however I speak no Spanish. Are there enough English speakers that I will be able to explore the city on my own? Also, how safe is the city currently for someone such as myself (young, female, obviously American)?

    • Language Schools in Cuernavaca

      by starduster Online Now Apr 2, 2009 at 11:51 PM

      I'm looking into language schools in the Cuernavaca area for a quick vacation this summer. From the research I've done so far it looks like there are a *ton* of them, and they all look more or less the same. Does anyone have any experience to recommend one of them over the others?

      Some details on what I'm looking for:
      - My Spanish level is beginner-intermediate.
      - I can only stay for 1 - 1.5 weeks. I have no illusions of gaining fluency in that time - mostly I'm looking for something to kick-start my Spanish, and have some fun at the same time.
      - Not interested in academic credit.
      - Would be interested in home-stays, field trips, other fun activities, not just sitting in a classroom all day.
      - Medium price range. Do not require 5 star accommodations, but I'm really beyond the back-packer hostel at this point.

      Does anyone recognize something from this description that might fit my bill?
      Gracias!

      I stayed in Cuernavaca on a language immersion program about 10 years ago. I am going back in the summer and would like to stay in a cheap but nice hotel in the downtown (old city) area. I remember we stayed in a gorgeous place, unknown to the big tour companies, for like35 a night right near the square. I don't remember what it was called anymore though. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!--emily
