I am planning a trip to Tulum with a group of friends in July and wanted to get people's recommendations on restaurants, things to do, attractions activities, etc.
Are there scooter or 4 wheeler rentals in the area that you can rent for a week? How is the transportation getting around.
Any and all information will help!
I'm a keen diver and like to see big wildlife - sharks, whales, rays etc. I was thinking of going to Cabo Pulmo to dive for a long weekend in the next month or so but am not sure that that is the best time to go weather wise to see this type of marine life. Does anywhere know the area well to give tip as to what I might see, when.
Separately I am thinking of a weekend trip to La Paz, with the aim of doing a day trip to Espiritu Santo. Are these trips worth it in terms of things to see…
My family is renting a house in Cabo from the 25th-1, I was thinking of flying to San Diego and then driving to Cabo.

I am also wondering where should i stop along the way, what towns are best, or hostels/hotels? Also are there any issues traveling over christmas? One more thing I am not a very…
I've already looked at some weather websites, but I wanted to get some personal opinions about the weather in Oaxaca in July and August.
Does it rain as much as I've heard? It seems that those are fairly rain months. Is this state-wide, or does the rain tend to fall more in certain areas?
Also, how much does it cool down in the evenings? I'm assuming that there's a difference between evening weather in Oaxaca de Juarez and evenings out in the Mixteca due to elevation, and so I'd like to…
A couple questions about Day of the Dead in Oaxaca City:
Are there particular areas of Oaxaca City anyone recommends for wandering during Day of the Dead?
Is there a particular cemeteries most interesting to stay near during this time?
Are there activities that take place before and after these dates that I might want to plan to attend?
Thanks for any help.
