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?
My husband and I plan to stay in Mexico City in April (first visit to Mexico) and would like advice on the most interesting and safest part of the city to stay - we were thinking maybe stay in the Central Historical district? - any info 'for' or 'against' - we would be grateful.
Also what sort of weather can we expect?
Is Xenses worth going to?
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!
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.
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.
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.

Hi, I am looking for New Year's Eve parties/events for 2016 in Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Searching through the internet, I have only been able to find announcements for previous New Year's parties, but none for this year. Does anyone know if there's something going on, or can help me as to where to look?
Thank you all!
I missed my flight to London on Thursday 11pm at Mexico City airport. OK, Aeromexico reassured me I will be put on the next flight on Friday.
So I went Friday morning. They said I have a seat, and the ticket price has gone up, so I have to pay 700 us dollars extra. I was under their command as I was the one who made the error. So I paid and took the flight. One quarter of the plane was empty.
How would you justify this? Was I ripped off? Would you have done it differently?
I know it's ridiculous, but I have one whole day to spend here.
Any recommendations with hopping route from centro to centro?
I am only a sightseeing tourist. Thanks
Has anyone had any experience using TraficTours for airport transportation in Cancun? They are included in my Delta Vacations package and I can't seem to find any information on them.

Hi, we are travelling to Mexico on 10Dec2016 with British Airways and have read conflicting reviews on whether or not we will need to pay a local departure tax of around 900 pesos. Some reviews have said it will be included on our ticket whereas others have said we have to pay it when leaving Mexico. Does anyone know the truth about this? Even the official Cancun website doesn't mention it! If we do have to pay it locally do they definitely accept sterling?
I'm traveling to Cancun in early January and staying the first few days at an studio I rented out on AirBnb. I plan to book a all-inclusive hotel at some point during my trip for about 3 day stay. Is it possible to book a decent all-inclusive hotel on the spot? If so, any recommendation on a hotel for a single male in his 20's?
I am a single female 36 years old with no children and my bday just happens to fall a week before Christmas. I'm used to my friends and fam not able to travel right before or after Christmas so I end up traveling alone at this time of year.
I'll be in Cabo at the Pueblo Bonito resort all week 12/13 - 12/20 and would love to know that I can meet someone (preferably another female or group) for some meals and activities.
Is there a Mx Immigration Office and Bank to obtain a FMM ( tourist card) in Algodones? Where is it located. If none there, where is the closest town to obtain one?
We are Americans thinking of driving to San Miguel de Allende entering through Reynosa or Laredo.
My reading of travelers warnings has me TERRIFIED. Are we insane to attempt doing this right now?
We would be sticking to major highways & have been told to only drive in the day light but we do not currently speak fluent Spanish. ADVICE PLEASE!!!
Hi VTers! My husband and I are going on a quick weekend trip to PV this weekend. I'm usually so ahead in my planning, but haven't had time to do a single thing yet. I had a few questions I was hoping you might be able to help with.
1. What is the best way to get from the airport to the hotel? I have contacted the hotel to see if they can arrange transportation and am waiting to hear back from them. Is taking a taxi safe? I saw this tip from 2012 and was wondering if it was still valid. Taxi FROM the Airport: Taxis Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Tip - VirtualTourist Was also wondering if we should just go ahead and hire our own car.
2. Is there a good place to exchange money? Or should we do it in the states before we leave?
3. If there was 1 activity you could recommend we don't miss, what would it be?
4. If there was 1 restaurant you recommend we don's miss, what would it be?
Again, our trip is short, we arrive on Friday afternoon and leave Monday afternoon so we will probably just be relaxing most of the time. We haven't had a real vacation without our child in 5 years!
We like the beach, we like to snorkel, we like to learn about the local culture, listen to live music, and love to eat Mexican food! Thank you for any suggestions!
We are two Brits in our late 50s(boy and girl) looking to spend a week next September somewhere in Mexico conducive to a great blend of beach, town, food and heritage - so not fussy at all. We will have a car.
All suggestions and advice will be greatly appreciated!

Is there an exchange location on Carranza?
I have about 7-8 days in Mexico.
My interests are photography and historical sites.
I am thinking about spending
4 days in Mexico city with side trips to Puebla and Teotihuacan ruins
3-4 days in guanajuato - side trips to Morelia and San Miguel
are the side trips doable? or are they too far to enjoy for a day trip?
Should I just stay in Mexico city and do day trips from there the whole time?
any suggestions would be appreciated.
I would like to know how much some of you paid for your excursions in and around Cancun like for example chicken itza,cenotes,s winning with dolphins etc.
How can I get local information (in English) on rented accom.? I need a reasonably priced place for one year.
