      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.

    • Crocodiles or Alligators?

      Cabo San Lucas Jan 3, 2017 at 3:45 PM

      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.

    • Traveling the Tampico-Ciudad Valles Highway/Mexico 70

      by bstan217 Online Now Sep 6, 2012 at 1:47 PM

      Hi, I have an opportunity to travel to a small resort slightly east of Ciudad Valles in 2013. I obviously have some concerns about traveling to Mexico at the moment.

      I did review the travel.state.gov website, but am interested in some more detailed information. We would fly into Tampico and travel by car/van via the Tampico-Ciudad Valles/Mexico 70 Highway to a small resort slightly east of Ciudad Valles.

      My main concern is traveling on the Tampico-Ciudad Valles/Mexico 70 Highway. If you could please provide me with as much detailed information as possible about this specific route, it would be much appreciated. Most of the information I can find is from 2011 or earlier.

      Thank you in advance.

    • Is there any danger in traveling to Tampico and from Tampico to Cd. Valles, SLP?

      by schuttan Online Now Dec 8, 2010 at 7:19 AM

      I would like to visit a friend in Tampico, and then go from there to Cd. Valles, SLP. My friend in Cd. Valles recently told me that there was danger for them to travel by bus to Cancun because of kidnappings!! Also, there was that 77-year-old rancher who was recently killed by drug cartel people when he didn't vacate his ranch north of Tampico as ordered by them. So Tampico was actually in our TV reports of killings in Mexico!!

      I am wondering of the advisability of my going to Tampico and also to Cd. Valles, if you know where that is.

      Thanks for any advice you can give me.

      Also, I went to the public beach in Tampico many years ago and was very disgusted by how dirty it was. Are there beaches there that are clean, and would they be warm enough to swim in in February? Would there be a nice hotel/resort right on the beach to stay in??? Can you recommend one or two? THANKS!!
