Hey there, I'm looking at flight combinations for guatemala-spain in august

I found gua-cun, cun-mad to be cheap and convenient. I would be flying with volaris (probably arriving at T2 cancun?) and then WamosAir departing from T3.

I would have to get out, collect my luggage and I understand pass migration, then go to T3 and check my luggage with the other company.

The layover is around 2'30hours. Is it safe? How far away are the terminals, etc?

Does anybody know other companies flying…

I have waxed and waned about where I'd move to in order to escape the coastal heat of Jalisco. I thought, go to San Sebastian del Oeste, a beautiful place above Puerto Vallarta but with few facilities of any kind. Too rustic to live full time!
Mexico City: It would have been nice but the air quality is really terrible as is the cost of living! Otherwise, I do like this city.
Ajijic: I liked it enough. It's not far from Guadalajara where I have a good friend, has a near subtropical climate but is…

I recently read this terrific novel by a young Mexican author I hadn't heard of before and wanted to tell you about it. "The Body Where I Was Born" was written by Guadalupe Nettel, translated by J. T. Lichtenstein, published by Seven Stories Press, New York (2015). The original Spanish edition was titled "El cuerpo en que naci" and published by Editorial Anagrama, Barcelona (2011).

The bio on the back inside jacket claims she's one of the most talked about writers of new Mexican fiction. She…

Hi Thorntree! I have another question before I leave for the Yucatan Peninsula in two weeks (!!)

On my first day, I'm flying into Cancun airport. I had originally decided just to stay in Cancun for one night before catching a bus to Isla Holbox. I'm pretty reluctant to do this because I've heard that Cancun is pretty touristy and disappointing (especially for the backpacking crowd), and now I'm worried that I'll be wasting this night. Would it be better to bus down to Puerto Morelos, hang out…

Any thoughts on these accommodation choices? Good? Bad? Ugly?

Most are semi-booked, so just making sure I haven't missed anything & also sharing what we have found to help others who may be looking for something similar. Our criteria is mid-range (averaging US$100), suitable for a family, quiet, safe, preferably with access to a kitchen and swimming pool (noted below)

Mexico City - splitting time between Hotel Catedral in Centro & Hotel Stanza in La Roma.
Oaxaca - El Diablo y La Sandia /…

Hey all, I'm about to head out to Oaxaca's Pueblos Mancomunados for a few days, starting in Cuaji and heading downwards to Amatlan or something. Traveling alone, what's it like camping along the way? I've heard of other people camping on the trail without problems, and apparently most of the villages have campsites for around MX$50 a night. But, what's it like? Am I going to get any crap camping near villages, and should I just pay for those cabins along the way? The cabins sound nice, and…

The BBC World News website is reporting a shoot-out between "gunmen" and police at an Acapulco hotel apparently frequented by police. The hotel is not named and the district is only named Las Playas, which I assume is Caleta and Caletilla. One of the gunmen got killed. There was a simultaneous shoot-out at a federal police station elsewhere in Acapulco. Needless to say, I hope this is not the start of bad business because it could get very bad.
