    • 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.

      I found this place when looking for a smaller beach resort on Oaxacan coast and I was curious if anyone has an experience with them? They might be new or something because I can't find too much else about them online.

    • Bring my iPad to Oaxaca City?

      by generdude Online Now Feb 26, 2012 at 10:47 AM

      I'm wondering if it's a good idea to bring my iPad with us to Oaxaca City. Is there anyone with experience in bringing a laptop or iPad? Is it safe to leave it in a reputable hotel? We're staying at the Mariposa, which doesn't have a room safe, only a general area for guests that isn't locked.

    • Air travel from Oaxaca to Hualtulco

      by kespino Online Now Dec 6, 2011 at 3:59 PM

      Can you travel from Oaxaca to Hualtulco by air direct without having to go through Mexico City. If there are small airlines that make the trip, can you give me a website? What is the estimated cost for a one way trip?

    • Reasonable priced accomodation in Mazunte.

      by snurt Online Now Feb 14, 2011 at 11:12 AM

      Would like to hear any suggestions, traveling with my girlfriend and lookinng for a 1 bedroom bungalow or small apartment, with cooking facilities and bathroom, within a 5-10 minute walk to the beach.

      We want to rent for approx 2 months, tried the internet but the prices quoted were quite frankly daylight robbery.

      I was under the impression500 per month would be more than enough for a nice place but starting to realise things might be more expensive than I imagined.

      any and all suggestions thanking you !!!

    • Please, info about oaxaca City / Monte Alban/Hatulco

      by bterchin Online Now Feb 1, 2010 at 10:48 AM

      Hi, everyone! We're going to Huatulco, Oaxaca nest month. Does anyone know of an excursion company that can take us by plane across the mountains from Huatulco to Ciudad de Oaxaca and Monte Alban? About 15 years ago, there was compay that took me to a church, a museum, the city for a few hours and the great Monte Alban.
      Do the the hotels still have these excursions? Driving won't be an option for us, and the bus ride takes about 7 hours. Has anyone an idea or name?
      THank you SO much!! Bonnie

    • Backpackers bus from Mexico City to Oaxaca?

      by christinejb Online Now Apr 29, 2005 at 5:01 AM

      I have information on a backpackers bus service that operates from Mexico City to Oaxaca. Unfortunately all efforts to confirm this service has come to nothing.
      Does anyone have the details of who to contact for this service?
      I am a first time visitor to Mexico and are travelling on my own, so I would like to make sure I have as much info as possible before I head off.
