Im writing of behalf of my son who’s been backpacking around Mexico for the last year. A long story short, his tourist permit (FMM) has expired by almost 5 months. Basically he became horrendously sick and ended up in a hospital for awhile and couldn't travel at the point of expiration, and has only just recently got back on his feet (literally) – he knows that he should have sorted this out sooner. He wants to leave Mexico at this point to resolve his immigration status. He plans to travel to…
Just want to get a general idea about rental costs in the Puerto Escondido area. I rented in San Cristobal de las Casas the past few months, directly from a local a little outside of the center for a great price. But found it quite tricky and time consuming to find a good spot.
I am already familiar with the online options (viva anuncios, AirBnB, etc) and the idea of hitting the streets until you find what you are looking for :) other suggestions super appreciated.
I always travel with a coffee press and a small supply of ground beans. Now, it's running out and part of my tourism is to find a great source of beans. This will probably be my gift to friends back home, so I take this task very seriously!
Does anybody know where I can get high quality beans in either Merida or Tulum? I'm in Merida now, so the need is very pressing at the moment. But Tulum is my final destination.
After living in this country for 12 years, and 40 years traveling around in and out, I was stunned to know that I had never heard of the Huasteca! So I went and just got back. It was awesome and it was hot. I live in Jalisco so I went: Guad to SLP, to Rioverde, to Tamasopo, to Valle, to Xilitla, to Jalpan de Serra, to Bernal, to Querétaro, to Guad and home Lake Chapala. I took a week and went all by bus, taxi, combi, and the kindness of strangers. Only got to scratch the surface.
I just arrived in Merida. I'm staying in a suburb: Cholul. Today, I parked downtown and spent 8 pesos an hour. Is there cheaper parking or places with a day rate? I'm planning on doing a few full days downtown and don't want to keep paying this rate.
We're planning our trip to Yucatán/Tabasco/Campeche/Chiapas in August. Planning to rent a car: How safe is it to drive, especially after sunset?
Any hint or experience is welcome , our previous trip to Mexico is old story (before the kids...) and we used to travel by bus as backpackers.
