    • 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.

    • Is it safe to drive to Puerto Escondido?

      by bthale60 Online Now May 29, 2011 at 6:19 PM

      I would love to go to Puerto Escondido but it's easier and cheaper to fly to Huatulco. I was considering renting a car and driving as I think it is about 100 KM distance. Is it safe? I have been to Huatulco and love it. I found it very safe.

      Is the a good All Inclusive Resort/Hotel in the area?

      by stjomopaul Online Now Feb 26, 2007 at 11:54 AM

      I have seen a number of comments from travelers that they are dissatisfied with the All- inclusives. Is there a real good one?

      If this is not a great all inclusive, I would like to know the names of several good hotels that either have dinning rooms or are within a short distance from good restaurants.

      Your help and assistance will, as always, be appreciated.

    • Rent a car or taxi?

      by vetra Online Now Jul 30, 2006 at 8:18 AM

      My wife and I will be traveling to the Huatulco area later this week. We will be staying in Mazunte, but would like to explore the surrounding areas during our seven day stay on the coast--Puerto Escondido, Huatulco, maybe a trip into the mountains. Not sure whether to rent on car or depend on taxis or public transportation for these excursions. Looking for advice. How is the driving in these areas--anything particularly challenging? Also am a little confused about insurance coverages that would be necessary. I realize that we would probably have to purchase some extra coverage, but not sure how much and how this works. What would be a reasonable cost for a seven day car rental in the area? Any help would be greatly appreciated--the sooner the better as we are leaving Tuesday! Thanks.
