From The Yucatan Times newspaper, 29 April 2016...

Seattle resident Jonathan Reinhard is desperate to find his wife, 26-year-old Jenny Chen, who was on a two-month backpacking trip through Mexico.

Chen, a Chinese citizen living in Seattle, left for her trip to Mexico in early March. On Facebook, she documented the places she visited, the people she met, including some of her gracious hosts.

Jenny Chen was last seen on Monday April 11 in Oaxaca, according to Reinhard. He had planned to meet…

Just wanting to know if anyone has current pricing on the visitors program to El Triunfo or any other relevant information. Has anyone visited in mid August and if so the general weather conditions? I realise these could vary year to year with rapid climate change taking place. I was also wondering how hard the walking between Finca Prusia and Campamento El Triunfo is. Any relevant information would be much appreciated.

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 /…
