    • Xenses- worth it?

      Cancún Jan 4, 2017 at 8:49 PM

      Is Xenses worth going to?

    • 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


      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?

      Rosarito Dec 26, 2016 at 8:35 AM

      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.

      planning time to visit colonial cities around Guanajuato

      Zacatecas Aug 24, 2010 at 10:12 AM


      I am planning a trip where I will stay in a hostel in Guanajuato and will have 9 days of visiting time. Since I am making Guanajuato my home base, I would like to visit other cities near by as day trips.

      I know nothing about these places, but realize, at least that some are smaller than others and of course,and perhaps several could be visited in one day, while others would take several days.

      Nonetheless, I am on a limited budget and so must return to Guanajuato to sleep. Also, I do not have a car, so would likely take a bus.

      With that in mind, What are your recommendations? My thought was the following: Guadalajara ( I know, more than one day, but possibly city center highlights?), Queretaro, Morelia/ Patzuaro, Zacatecas. San Luis Potosi, Aquaclaientes,San Miguel de Allende. I have read that Dolores Hidalgo is very important historically, but architecturally, not of that much interest, but I am not sure.

      I assume I will spend 3 days or so seeing Guanajuato as well and can, of course see it in small chunks of time each day as well. I have a lot of energy and don't mind long days, but am I just crazy to try to see all of this in my short time?

      I really appreciate your help.

      Thank you for any suggestions.

      Sombrerete and Guadalupe

      Estado de Zacatecas Mar 19, 2008 at 11:50 AM

      Does anyone have hotel recommendations for either of these cities? I can't find any reviews for Sombrerete hotels.

      My husband and I stayed at Meson la Noria in Guadalupe last year. It was ok, just not great. We loved Guadalupe (and Zacatecas), however!

      Also, I'd appreciate any recommendations about restaurants and things to do in Sombrerete.

      I'll be flying into Aguascalientes airport and will need to get to Zacatecas city that same night. I'm presuming that I take a taxi from the airport to a bus station, and then a bus (like ETN) to Zacatecas. Anyone have experience with this -- or know where I can get the info --e.g., how far is the bus station from the airport? Name of station? Taxi faire? Trying to connect the dots ...

      Zacatecas Nov 8, 2004 at 7:39 PM

      I am planning a trip to Zacatecas in May 2005. I will be only carring what I can get in a back pack. Plan on staying about a week. Don't worry , I plan on washing some stuff while I am there. Where would you recommend staying that is not too expensive but clean and relatively safe. I don't speak much spanish (mostly words) and understand even less. This will give me a chance to learn more out of necessity. What do they call it immerison? Check my bbt home page since I don't know how to get my picture over here. I live in the Dallas, Texas area.

      My husband and I are very interested in moving to Morelia. We are retired teachers and know some Spanish. We both prefer to live in an area that is not overrun with fellow Americans from the U.S. Can anyone who has lived/traveled extensively in this part of colonial Mexico tell us what it's like? What are other cities in the area (besides San Miguel de Allende) that we might check out? Thanks so much, Nancy Bell
