      Traveling to Cancun from Chicago with 4 month old baby- First trip with baby!

      Cancún Yesterday

      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!

      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.

      Playa La Ropa or Playa La Madera

      by mexicruiser Online Now Aug 2, 2005 at 9:12 PM

      My husband and I are planning to spend a week in Zihuatanejo next Feb/Mar, and are trying to decide whether we should stay in La Ropa or La Madera. We are looking for a quiet peaceful area with nice sandy white beaches, palm trees, a few palapa bars/restaurants, and not too many people. Our budget will allow us between50-$100 per night for a beachfront bungalow/condo/apartment with an ocean view.

      We were concerned that La Ropa might be too far to walk back to from the downtown area at night, or even during the day. Do busses run between the two beaches at night, are taxis affordable?

      We had checked out Bungalows Pacificos website, and it seemed fairly nice and within the budget (only just!). Has anyone stayed there? Any reviews or info on the place? Any help and advice on accommodations,etc would be greatly appreciated as this will be our first visit to this part of Mexico, and we would like it to be a fun and positive visit!

      Please email me with any info, advice, etc at mexicruiser@VTmail.com

      Thanks in advance.

We're looking for something that has some personality, is on or near a good beach and is located close to downtown Zihuatenejo.

I welcome any other tips on nightlife, restaurants, & must do activities. Thanks!
