This branch covers travel to and around Mexico.

Anyone that has traveled to Mexico City found any restaurants or street vendors that do their tacos with the 'tortilla' made out of cheese melted on a griddle and then the filling is wrapped inside of that? Known as Costra....
I have heard of it but wondered if it is readily available throughout the city or only a few restaurants do that. When doing a search online (outside of the TT) only a few restaurants seem to be coming up with regularity but that doesn't mean it cannot be found elsewhere.

I will be traveling in Mexico City next month (July 13-17). Is anyone aware of celebrations going on there during that time?

I saw that Guelaguetza dance festival is happening down in Oaxaca. Is that the only one nearby? Traveling solo so looking at activities to fill my itinerary. Already looking at city/pyramid tours.

Hello,

Going to Mexico for the first time in November. I have about 14 days there. I booked a flight going in to Mexico City and leaving from Cancun (change in Mexico City), and I thought I would easily be able to travel from Mexico City to Cancun by bus. Looking at the distances and durations of bus journeys now, I'm thinking whether I was a bit overambitious. Does anybody have any advice/recommendations for itinerary for this route?

Places I thought I'd like to visit are (however now…

I am heading to San Miguel de Allende in November. I am arriving in BJX 23rd Thursday early morning (6am) and departing BJX Sunday evening (9pm). My question is whether I should spend my entire time in San Miguel de Allende or split my time between San Miguel and the city of Guanajuato -

I was thinking I will be in San Miguel by 8ish, will get some rest and start exploring the city around noon the first day and have the whole of next day to explore as well. Then head to Guanajuato and have a…

The final section of our write up on the west coast and central inland Mexico.

South of Perula we stayed for quite a while at Playa Tenacatita. This beach has a somewhat sad history. In the 80's and 90's it was very popular with both gringos and locals. There were several dozen palapa style restaurants on the beach, a handful of concrete hotels and small villas, some with pools, an rv park and numerous palapas which individuals had built to camp in. Then, beginning in the late 90's, a Mexican…

The next section southward, between San Blas and Puerto Vallarta, is fairly well developed for tourism. We hopped south, then north, then south again in this area, but I'll describe them from north to south.

In the town of El Rincon, just south of San Blas and north of Aticama, we stayed at El Chaco, mostly a hotel (with pool) but also with 8 rv spaces with full hookups. We paid $350 a night. Canadian John was a long time returnee there and very helpful with info on the general area. A long…
