    • 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?

    • Driving from San Diego

      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 have read some travel warnings that imply it's possible to get pulled over at road stops with impersonators that rob you. 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.

    • Crocodiles or Alligators?

      Cabo San Lucas Jan 3, 2017 at 3:45 PM

      Are there any crocodiles or alligators in Cabo? I'm traveling with small children and just found out that Puerto Vallarta has them. I want to avoid the issue.

      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.

      Border crossing for quick shopping and dining

      by NapoleonU Online Now Mar 7, 2016 at 6:34 AM

      I'll be driving along I-10 thru El Paso, TX. Any recommendations to park nearby, cross the border to Juarez, souvenir shop, and dine before crossing back? Is it better to have car and drive further in? Thinking a 2-4 hour side trip would be nice.

    • Mexican Fed Highway 2 to Janos & beyond

      by lorenzolait Online Now Jan 27, 2010 at 7:05 AM

      This coming March I'm planning to depart Juarez and drive to the resort area in San Carlos, Sonora. I am searching to see whether or not anyone has traveled this highway recently, and the condition of the road itself, as well as the safety issues along the route. I plan to follow Route 2 through Chihuahua state and on to Aqua Prieta in Sonora state and then continue to Mexican Fed Highway 15D to San Carlos/Guymas, Sonora. Please let me know if anyone has followed at least part of this route. Anxiously awaiting your response.

      Nice neighborhoods in Juarez.

      by caffeine_induced78 Online Now Feb 12, 2006 at 1:10 PM

      I'll be in Juarez for a few days in early March for a little vacation and to do some research for school. I've heard that the area around Ave. 16 de Septiembre east of the Palacio Municpial is one of the nicer parts of the city. I'm looking for an area that is kind of trendy, with sidewalk cafes, restuarants, and maybe a few drinking holes.

      Any suggestions at all? Thank you,

    • Bus to Corona Rally Mexico (Guanajuato)

      by sspin Online Now Feb 8, 2006 at 4:50 PM

      We are heading from Ciudad Juarez to Leon and Guanajuato for Corona Rally Mexico, and are trying to get bus information. I've taken the bus from CJ to DF before (after missing the train... fun!), but I can't find a schedule anywhere on buses to Guanajuato from CJ. Estrella Blanca and Omnibus de Mexico appear to offer this route, but their website horarios/destinos pages are not functional, and I'm just not sure. CJ's Camionera Central doesn't seem to have a phone number...

      Any suggestions? (Any tips on great restaurants/cafes/art-stuff in Gto or Leon would also be greatly appreciated, too)

      Thank you!
