ZIKA

The Zika risk is evolving so I thought it instructional to post extracts from the CDC.

Because Zika virus is primarily spread by mosquitoes, CDC recommends that travelers to Mexico protect themselves from mosquito bites. Sexual transmission of Zika virus from a male partner is possible, so travelers are also encouraged to use condoms.

What can travelers do to prevent Zika?

There is no vaccine to prevent or medicine to treat Zika. Travelers can protect themselves by preventing mosquito bites:

1) I don't really speak Spanish but can get by. The ADO bus website is only in Spanish. I could TRY to navigate it (using an online translator) and buy some tickets for travel next week, but I was just wondering if it was that simple, or if they need some specific info (like a mobile phone # to which they send passwords) etc.? I just fill in the name, credit card details and voilà?

2) I prefer to have the tickets before I travel so that way I don't have to worry about not getting a seat the…

Anyone have a preference...or helpful warning?
Researching now, and with just a handful to choose from in Tulum, thought I'd learn from the experiences of others... Sounds amazing, in the right hands.
Peace

I live in San Diego, and like to walk over to TJ occasionally for tacos and shopping. This used to be effortless, but now Mexico has decided they want to pretend they're a real country, so they created a full-scale entry facility. No big deal, really, one simply shows passport, and waits for the agent to fill out a visa form. The problem, though, is when they stamp my passport; I don't see why my passport has to be destroyed by page after page of TJ stamps!

My question is: Are the border…

Boyfriend and I will be flying into DF late on 2/12 and will have 9 full days in Mexico. The plan is to spend 4-5 days in Mexico City (Teotihuacan, museums, food bars & wandering in the different interesting neighborhoods, maaaybe Six Flags because we love amusement parks and there's a foot of snow on the ground where we live right now), then head to Oaxaca for the other 4-5 days by bus. We don't have any specific plans for the Oaxaca part and will definitely spend some time poking around Oaxaca…

Hi, has anyone visited carnaval in Yautepec? I went to Tepoztlan this weekend (Saturday afternoon the kids danced, and Sunday afternoon the procession to the zocalo began a little before 4 p.m., Chinelo dancing in the zocalo started some time after 4 p.m. , for anyone interested) and I was wondering if Yautepec was worthwhile or similar. Also, is it possible to take a bus directly from Yautepec to Las Estacas? This forum has been really helpful for finding out about festivals (Candelaria in…

Going to try this with a different slant.
I brought an inexpensive Canon printer with me from Canada but it turns out it's a model that isn't supported in Mexico. It's one of those simple things I never even considered. I'm here for a couple of months and I need a printer for work but I've run out of black ink and my colour will be getting low pretty quick but no one here stocks the replacement cartridges.

If you're willing to bring down two replacement cartridges (black and colour) I'll pay you…
