    • Xenses- worth it?

      Cancún Jan 4, 2017 at 8:49 PM

      Is Xenses worth going to?

    • 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


      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.

      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.

      Like to visit Uxmal in July.. Traveling from Cancun...

      by Pacoima Online Now Jun 29, 2009 at 9:38 PM

      I need to know how to get a bus in Merida that Goes to Uxmal. I will be traveling from Cancun, in July 09. I feel safe taking the bus from Cancun, however my girlfriend thinks that this trip is going to be complicated. I'm bilingual and this might be some help. The more that we talk about this trip the less safe we both feel.. Please replay with detail info on how to get around once we get off from the bus terminal in Merida..

      Thank you,

      Palenque to Uxmal to Cancun by Car

      by wilocrek Online Now Apr 10, 2008 at 11:58 AM

      I'm planning on driving from Palenque to Santa Elena, the map seems fairly straight forward in terms of taking route 186 to 261, its all the small unmarked roads that have me concerned. Same with all the small unmarked roads from Uxmal to route 180 D. My question is are these roads hard to navigate? Even though they are unmarked, according to the map there aren't very many roads so I figure it would be just a matter of turning on the road on my left or right if I'm following the map. If anyone has driven these roads from 261 to Uxmal, or the roads from Uxmal heading East to 180D, not via Merida, any suggestions or feedback would be appreciated. Thanks

    • Good accommodation with safe restaurant near Uxmal

      by TennGerry Online Now Apr 24, 2007 at 5:23 PM

      Traveling from Cancun in our rental car to see Uxmal will make a too long day and Sayil, Labdna...wouldn't be possible in the same day. The plan is to find a hotel for an overnight stay before returning to the already paid for all inclusive hotel we have in Cancun. This mom will be traveling with two daughters. My youngest daughter will have just finished a four month regimen of chemotherapy and will be taking a break before surgery and radiation treatment begins. She will be immunologically suppressed from the chemo. We need a place to stay overnight that maintains a very safe kitchen. We have traveled the area before and ate in cantinas.....but this time is different. She CANNOT get sick.

      How far is it from Cancun (Airport) to Uxmal? We are thinking about renting a car and staying in Valladolid for 3 days then driving to Uxmal from there and staying our last 3 nights then driving back to catch a flight out of Cancun on our last day. Not sure how far of a drive it is though? Would appreciate anyone's thoughts...Thanks!
