Hi, My name is David and my wife is Teresa. We are going to be visiting Mazatlan in October with and return in January 2016 to stay 6 months.
We have done all of the research through books and internet to learn about Mazatlan, but would like to meet a few expats in Mazatlan to get some help about cost of housing, where to live in Mazatlan, where the expats congregate etc. If any individual expats would be willing to help us, we would be very appreciative.
Hope to hear from you soon
Cancun is two places. One is the hotel zone for tourists and one is Centro for the locals to have a place to live during construction. Neither place is old Cancun. Both came into existence about the same time. Centro Cancun is now a cheaper place to stay but now has some problems due to a flood of illegals from Central America as is not as safe as in years past. I still enjoy Centro after visits .there since l990 but so have to use more care.
Hi there guys,
I am flying one way out to Mexico at the end of July/start of August, as I will be studying in Guadalajara or Monterrey. If anyone has made the journey before, would you be able tell me which is the cheapest route for flights? Is it easier to go via Mexico City/Houston, Texas and then take a bus to either destination?
Thank you :)
Hola! I have about 9 days in early October to spend in Mexico. It'll still be hurricane season, I so I'd like to be somewhere with less chance of being in the path of a storm. I can't decide between Guanajuato or Oaxaca. The former will have the big arts event Festival Internacional Cervantino on while I'm there and is close to San Miguel de Allende and other colonial towns (and is also cheaper/closer to fly into); the latter I'm attracted to as it seems more 'authentic', with market towns…
My girlfriend and I are flying into Mexico City in January, on our first big overseas trip, and are just trying to roughly plan our trip. I have been looking on the internet and looking at travel books and brochures quite a bit. the more I look at them all though the harder it gets. What I cant distinguish is whether somewhere is actually worth going to or it is just written up to be better than it is.
With the help of suggestions on this forum, I spent 8 wonderful days in San Cristobal, studying Spanish at Instituto Jovel and living with a very nice family. Although the rainy season has begun, most of the days are warm and sunny, while the nights are a bit cold. San Cristobal is a beautiful little town in the mountains with clean air and plenty to do.
I spent my first night at Hotel Diego Mazariegos, since I got a great deal on Expedia, although breakfast is not included. The little museums…
There are too many people selling trinkets at the Teotihuacan archaeological site, and they're too pushy. It detracts from the experience of visiting an extraordinary place.
I feel bad saying that, because I really do respect the fact that people need to earn a living, and I want them to be able to continue to do so.
But there has to be a better way to organize this.
