    • All Inclusive Hotel in Cancun or Playa

      Cancún Nov 19, 2016 at 5:51 PM

      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?

      Weekend Getaway in PV

      Puerto Vallarta Nov 7, 2016 at 11:50 AM

      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!

      Cancun airport departure tax

      Mexico Nov 21, 2016 at 1:18 PM

      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?

    • Where to shop?

      by holtrk85 Online Now Sep 20, 2006 at 12:44 PM

      I was recently in Piedras Negras for a day of shopping, eating and drinking. I came home quite disappointed. The Zaragoza Mercado was horrible. Very few true Mexican crafts and a lot of t-shirts. Plus it was empty of customers. For quite a
      while it appeared as if me and the 3 other people I was with were the only people
      there. On top of all that, the prices were outrageous and the vendors didn't seem
      at all receptive to bargaining. Several of the vendors also came across as rude.
      Almost as if they didn't want our business. Very much unlike my past experiences
      in Nuevo Laredo and Nuevo Progresso.

      Went across the street to the Moderno for a couple of beers and a plate of nachos. It
      is very nice, but the lack of windows makes it feel a bit dungeon like. Went further into
      town to eat at the El Rancho Steakhouse. Not bad, but definitely not great. I wish
      I would have stayed at Moderno.

      Lastly, it was Dies y Seis and there was really nothing going on. At least not in the
      Mercado or the plaza that is down the street from the Mercado.

      I can't help but feel that I totally missed the boat. Are there any other places in
      Piedras Negras to shop that would have provided a larger and better variety of items?
      If so where?

      At this point, I would never consider going back to Piedras Negras, nor would I
      recommend it.

      Should I have gone to Acuna instead?????

      Keith

      PS. The Kickapoo Casino just outside of Eagle Pass is fairly lame. Hold'em poker
      and slots only. No other table games of any type.
