I've never been to Mexico (except a day-trip from San Diego to Tijuana), and I'm thinking of looking for a getaway during the week between Christmas and New Years, when my company closes up for the week.

I don't know if what I'm looking for exists, but I suspect if it does, someone on this forum will know about it. And it doesn't have to check all the boxes, but the more of the following it fits, the better.

Not a resort
Not a tourist mecca (It doesn't have to be undiscovered, but I don't want…

Hi folks!
Am after some more info...
So I'm getting the shuttle from Lake Atitlan/Guatemala to San Cristobal on Friday and then flying from Tuxtla Gutierrez to DF.
How easy is it to get from San Cristobal to Tutxla airport, and would it make sense to get off the shuttle before I hit San Cristobal centre to pick up transport to the airport? Also, if I want to buy an ADO bus ticket (DF to Tapachula) can I do this in San Cristobal or, even better, in Tuxtla airport?
Any comments/info/feedback…

I need some input to help me decide where my daughter and I should spend our last 4 nights on our Yucatan trip. We will not be renting a car.

Maybe you can confirm or correct some assumptions I have made?

If we go to Tulum we'd stay at Las Palmas Mayas. Its important for me to have a simple kitchen available for small meals to same a few $$. We like to prepare 2 meals and eat out just one a day. But Tulum is really packed, right? And lots of "beautiful" people? I only bring a few changes…

Hi, I have heard that Guia Roji has the best road atlas, but ck'd online and it is $150 Cdn!!! Any other good road maps of Mexico out there that dont kill the budget? It was suggested to me to take Hwy 127 from Tampico instead of 180 then meet up with 180 down by Tihuatlan. Have Maps.me and gmaps think that will be enough? Have great directions for 180, but heard it is rough from Tampico?

We leave Flores, Guatemala and need to get to Pto Vallarta. It doesn't look like there's any flights from Flores into Mexico, just back to the capital.

There's a shuttle from Flores to Palenque (but not to San Cristobal DLC) and then we can take the ADO to DF...but ADO does not go to either Guadalajara or to Pto Vallarta...so I have to switch bus lines.
Any shuttles from Flores to SCDLC?
I take the ADO to DF, but what line from there to Guadalajara or Pto Vallarta?
!Mucho viaje!
Many thanks in…

Hi everyone

I was recently denied entry into Mexico at Mexico City airport owing to a minor drug charge I incurred as a foolish student in 2006. While having a criminal record certainly hasn't prevented me from finding a good job here in the US, it does seem to be thwarting my travel plans.

Do Mexican border posts along the Guatemala frontier have access to the same information that immigration at Mexico City airport does? Could I conceivably fly into Guatemala City, hang around the country…
