Has anyone stayed at Gecko Rock Resort?

I ran across Gecko Rock Resort when looking for a smaller independent beach hotel in Mexico but I can't find much about them online other than what's on TripAdvisor.

Does anyone have experience staying at this property or at any other similar boutique-style place in Mexico?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Melaque

Just a few questions about the little west coast town of Melaque about 2 hours south of Puerta Vallarta:
1. I'm from western Canada, retired, am thinking of spending winters there. Would like to rent a small apartment not too far from the beach. What would I have to pay for that? A price range would be okay.
2.I'm thinking to drive down from British Columbia. Good idea or not. I want to bring my golden retriever dog.

Cancun luggage storage 10 days - ADO bus station??

Hi all, I'm going on a 5 week trip and Mexico is the first stop for 10 days. Ideally I want to take a suitcase for the rest of my travels, and just take a small backpack around Mexico for 10 days as I'm travelling a lot and on public buses.

I'm spending the first night in Cancun, last night on Isla Mujeres, and flying in/out Cancun airport so ideally this would be at Cancun airport (but I've researched and they only seem to have…

Exit fee ?! how may times do I have to pay it?

I'm flying Cancun-Havana and after that I come back to Cancun to take a bus to Belize and after a few weeks I'm coming back to Cancun by bus to take a flight overseas, how many times do I have to pay the ''exit tax'' ?!

I Read that that US airlines include the FMM fee in the price of your ticket but there's no way to prove that I pay it as I don't have a receipt.

Has anyone rented a car in Chetumal?

We are flying into Cancun late January for a five week trip. I would like to bus to Chetumal, rent a car and tour the local area. My plan is to stay flexible, only rent the car for trips when it is needed or we are staying 'out-of-the-way'. The search results for Chetumal car rentals, all seem to rent out of Cancun. Has anyone rented a car in Chetumal and if so, where?
