    • 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!

      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?

      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.

      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.

    • Could use some help/advice...

      Saltillo Feb 10, 2016 at 10:20 AM

      I am trying to get a trip to Mexico rounded up, but I am at a loss trying to get it all to come together. I am traveling with my sister in law, brother, and our daughters. We have never been outside of the country before, so this is all very new to us. We are wanting to go to Saltillo... The best advice we have gotten is, travel into Nuevo Laredo, and then take a bus from there to Saltillo. My question is, how safe is all this, and should we be concerned with anything. Some people are saying "Take loads of pictures to send to family in case you vanish," "They could kidnap you and hold you for ransom" etc. Does anyone have any other places they can suggest that is safe and kid friendly? The thing is, we are on a very tight schedule as it is hard for me to get days off of work. Here is what the schedule consists of:

      Wednesday: We plan to leave our hometown at 8pm (after I get off work) and wanting to drive straight through the a destination close to the border so we can stay in a hotel on the US side for the night of THURSDAY so we can rest before we walk across.

      We want to get to Mexico FRIDAY morning and stay until SUNDAY morning so my daughter has at least 2 whole days with her dad (that is the original reason we are even going). We need to leave Sunday afternoon at the latest so we can get back home sometime MONDAY, because I will have to work TUESDAY. So anything that can fit around all this would be wonderful. Any and all help is so very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

      I am traveling to Acuna over Labor Day weekend with my girlfriend. From the reviews we have read, it sounds like a great border town with plenty of shopping and mexican food and other things to do. We will be spending 1.5 days there. My only real concern is safety. I have continued to read about all of the gang problems in Nuevo Laredo but I do not know much about Acuna. Can anyone tell me anything with regards to safety or crime? Any suggestions on what to do? Any comments and suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

    • Latest travel info for Acuna?

      Ciudad Acuña Oct 4, 2006 at 4:40 PM

      My wife and I are heading to the Davis Mountains this month and I was planning to stop in Acuna on the way. I intended to stay in Acuna for the convenience - probably the San Antonio - but my wife is worried due to gang activity on the border. I looked all over the internet and found one newspaper article about a murder/shootout back in May or June that was drug related but it wasn't anywhere near the tourist areas. If that is the worst crime they have Acuna is a lot safer than San Antonio, TX. I also found some recent postings that the locals were a little irritated with the recent immigration laws and werent quite as friendly as usual. I figure if we don't act obnoxious everything will be fine and we will have a great time. Anyone been down there recently and if so what are things like?
      Thanks!!

    • Where to shop?

      Piedras Negras Sep 20, 2006 at 12:44 PM

      I was recently in Piedras Negras for a day of shopping, eating and drinking. I came home quite disappointed. The Zaragoza Mercado was horrible. Very few true Mexican crafts and a lot of t-shirts. Plus it was empty of customers. For quite a
      while it appeared as if me and the 3 other people I was with were the only people
      there. On top of all that, the prices were outrageous and the vendors didn't seem
      at all receptive to bargaining. Several of the vendors also came across as rude.
      Almost as if they didn't want our business. Very much unlike my past experiences
      in Nuevo Laredo and Nuevo Progresso.

      Went across the street to the Moderno for a couple of beers and a plate of nachos. It
      is very nice, but the lack of windows makes it feel a bit dungeon like. Went further into
      town to eat at the El Rancho Steakhouse. Not bad, but definitely not great. I wish
      I would have stayed at Moderno.

      Lastly, it was Dies y Seis and there was really nothing going on. At least not in the
      Mercado or the plaza that is down the street from the Mercado.

      I can't help but feel that I totally missed the boat. Are there any other places in
      Piedras Negras to shop that would have provided a larger and better variety of items?
      If so where?

      At this point, I would never consider going back to Piedras Negras, nor would I
      recommend it.

      Should I have gone to Acuna instead?????

      PS. The Kickapoo Casino just outside of Eagle Pass is fairly lame. Hold'em poker
      and slots only. No other table games of any type.
