    • 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?

      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.

At the beginning I think I went to Estado de Sinaloa >Guanajuato and began my Guanajuato page there. Do I suppose to click on Estado de Guanajuato > Guanajuato or Estado de Guanajuato? If so how do you correct it. I don't really fancy starting the laborious work again. Can anyone help? Thanks

    • University Graduate in San Miguel de Allende

      San Miguel de Allende May 21, 2014 at 3:22 PM

      I recently graduated from a University in Texas and plan on taking a month long vacation in San Miguel de Allende for the entire month of June before hitting the real world. While I have visited the city before and know it pretty well, it would be nice to meet some new people and relax while I am there. While I am 22 years young, I do not have a preference in age when getting to know people. From a 21 year old student to a 65 year old ex-patriot. I enjoy my time with all. I am an avid sports enthusiast and plan on spending a lot of my time watching the upcoming World Cup games while having a drink (or two), but want to also get to know the city a bit more. Anything from going to the Jardin, finding a swimming spot to relax, traveling to the countryside to hike, or even kicking the ball around. I am usually open to anything and would also like to try and travel to nearby cities and even a city on the coast. It would be great to get any ideas on places where people hangout or anything worth knowing about.
