Back from 3 weeks roaming around area from Huatalco to PE.
Blue Taco truck still has the BEST food in Huatalco! And best fish/seafoof from H to PE, Second best place for fish in the area is a can of tuna from OXXO. Ordered fish fillets at least 7 times in various restaurants and , if anything, fish is worst than last year!
Steaks--Posada Mexico in Zipolite still has the BEST steaks in Mexico; Split Coconut in PE has the second best in Mexico. Wonder how they manage to have their steaks NOT…
I am surprised in my research. It seems we may be priced out of going to Tulum. Are there any cheap places in Tulum or near the beach and ruins. Last time we were there was 1996. Our budget is $35US or less. Everthing online seems to be $60US for budget accomodations or more. We travel by bus so we don't have a car for exploring or looking. Do we have to give up on Tulum? I am amazed at how much it has developed.
This is a brief report about my visit to the town of Valle Nacional and surroundings in the Chinantla region of Oaxaca. Part of a continuing series of ¨off the beaten track¨ adventures in search of the ¨real¨ Mexico.
I had first heard about Valle Nacional from Oliver Sacks´ nonfiction account of his fern-hunting expedition, ¨Oaxaca Journals.¨ Years later I passed through Valle Nacional on a bus from Tuxtepec to Ixtlan and was impressed by the scenery. And most recently I bought a hotdog in the…
I'm sure massage options run the gamut from pricey-pricey at the swanky beach-side spas, to less expensive choices in town.
Any recommendations? It would be great to find a decent hour-long massage someplace for around $20 - 30 US.

Borderland Beat is good resource for the latest news on turf war hot spots - you can also check out the forums at Baja Nomad to learn about road conditions, caravans and talk to others who spend a lot of time down there.
We're staying about 6 miles/10 km outside of Tulum town and will need taxis to get into town. Can anyone give me a general idea of how much we can to expect to pay for a 10-km trip one way? Just roughly...
There has been a couple posts about hiking in the Sierra Norte, the pueblos mancomunados, and the need for guides/organized tour packages. This is a response with some accurate and recent information of how to visit these areas for an affordable backpacker price. Any questions, I'm happy to answer!
There is a lot of misinformation/lack of information available about visiting the Pueblos Mancomunados. We had read in the lonely planet that a guide wasn't necessary and that the Sierra Norte…
