I'm planning a trip to mexico for 8 days the first week of June (flying in from Houston) and wondering where I should prioritize...I've never been (other than to a resort). I'm looking for authentic mexico and not tourist-driven. My thoughts are mexico city (including Puebla) OR guadalarja (including beach north or south of puerto vallarta) and/or oaxaca (and a beach excursion). Any insights would be greatly appreciated! My priorities are authentic culture and beautiful scenery (preferably…

Hi,

Two friends looking to travel Mexico and do a mixtures of sites and ruins. We'd have between 8-10 days and I'm looking for insight. We were thinking

Fly from US to Mexico City and spend 4 days there.
Fly to Merida and spend 2 days there and rent a car.
Drive Merida to Valladolid and spend 1-2 days there to see the ruins.
Drive Valladolid to Cancun and spend 1-2 days on beach relaxing.
Fly back Cancun to US.

Wondering whether driving is pretty straight-forward, we can rent a car in Merida…

All,

Are there any specific, basic safety concerns to keep in mind while in Mexico City? Other than the obvious ones, like not using most ATMs found on streets and not inside banks; not appearing to be lost, even if you are; etc. Mexico City-specific advice. :)

And on a related but different note, aside from fanny packs and speaking loudly in English, are there any other suggestions you have for not appearing to be overly "Gringo?" For example, I'm guessing from Google Images that most…

Hi all,
Sorry to repost on a similar topic that has been discussed before but looking for some specifics that I don't think have been covered.
I'm flying into TGZ/Ángel Albino Corzo International Airport this July for a short trip (conference + some personal travel). For the first part of the trip at least I will be travelling solo. My flight arrives at TGZ at around 9:22pm on a Thursday evening. I know that it's possible to catch a bus or a cab from TGZ directly to San Cris. However, from what…

I'm thinking of flying from Guatemala City to Mexico City next week, but someone told me you have to add 83 dollars on top of the plane ticket in airport tax fees.

Is this true for everyone or is it only certain countries that this applies for?

My husband, pug and I are planning on driving through Copper Canyon,crossing in Agua Prieta. I cannot find any info online about the highway between Moctezuma and Yecora. Has anyone driven it? It looks windy, and sparsely populated. Also having a tough time finding a hotel/motel in Yecora that accepts dogs, or that takes reservations online. Should I just gamble and take that road or travel along Hwy 2 and drop over to Chihuahua and head west onto Hwy 16 from there? It seems like it will take…
