    • 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

      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?

    • 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.

      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.

      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.

    • Could use some help/advice...

      by LaceyR1106 Online Now Feb 10, 2016 at 10:20 AM

      I am trying to get a trip to Mexico rounded up, but I am at a loss trying to get it all to come together. I am traveling with my sister in law, brother, and our daughters. We have never been outside of the country before, so this is all very new to us. We are wanting to go to Saltillo... The best advice we have gotten is, travel into Nuevo Laredo, and then take a bus from there to Saltillo. My question is, how safe is all this, and should we be concerned with anything. Some people are saying "Take loads of pictures to send to family in case you vanish," "They could kidnap you and hold you for ransom" etc. Does anyone have any other places they can suggest that is safe and kid friendly? The thing is, we are on a very tight schedule as it is hard for me to get days off of work. Here is what the schedule consists of:

      Wednesday: We plan to leave our hometown at 8pm (after I get off work) and wanting to drive straight through the a destination close to the border so we can stay in a hotel on the US side for the night of THURSDAY so we can rest before we walk across.

      We want to get to Mexico FRIDAY morning and stay until SUNDAY morning so my daughter has at least 2 whole days with her dad (that is the original reason we are even going). We need to leave Sunday afternoon at the latest so we can get back home sometime MONDAY, because I will have to work TUESDAY. So anything that can fit around all this would be wonderful. Any and all help is so very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    • Roads around there and staying in Saltillo around the New Year

      by bberrie Online Now Jun 7, 2014 at 11:07 AM

      I have never driven in Mexico and have rented a place for the winter in Yucatan. We have been advised not to come down the coast from Brownsville and to instead come across at Laredo and towards Monterrey/Saltillo. We decided to stay in Saltillo. Are the roads coming through from the border and into and out of Saltillo safe to travel on with my family?

      Is there a town called Saltillo between Pierdas Negras and Monclova? If so, if someone was born there, where would they have gone to register their birth?
