      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?

    • 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!

    • 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.

      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.

    • 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?????

      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.
