My husband I are planning a 10 day trip to the Yucatan Peninsula (en route to Florida) in late September, early October. We are coming from Australia, so our plan at this stage is to fly from LA to Merida, spend a couple of days there and then make our way to the coast before flying to Florida from Cancun.

We’re looking for a cultural experience (i.e. ancient ruins, Mexican art and architecture, delicious food and other significant/authentic sites or experiences), balanced by some fun and…

Hello All,

As part of a larger Mexico trip I will be spending a week in both Puebla and Mexico City. My plan is to fly into Benito Juarez, take a bus from there to Puebla and spend two nights. After that I will spend the rest of my time in Mexico City and I have a few questions about the weather and different places to check out.

1) What is the weather like towards the end of July? I know it is rainy season, but how rainy? Will I be able to get by with only a light jacket?

2) I would love…

Yucatan

I figure to head to Merida by this fall & will spend whatever time I feel like touring the area from Campeche, to uxmal to chikun & Valladoid before starting my main goal of visiting islands from Holbox to Mujeres to Carman & on to central & south americas' islands. Will probably find some interesting mainland places along the coastal bus lines as well. Tulum for sure.
Wondering if anybody knows of any other Mexican islands with room/bath accommodations that are not private resorts....or…

Hello,

As far as I can see from the hotels map there are two major locations:
1. Near Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral -Plaza de la Constitución
2. Near Museo Nacional de Antropología

Which one is better in terms of centrality, feeling safe, transportation, attractions, restaurants etc.? Most important - Safety.

Many Thanks
Shlomi

For anyone that has flown to Mexico with a child under 2 recently - I understand that the child can fly free if seated on an adults lap. But do you check the carseat with luggage to use in the taxi in Mexico, or leave it in the car at the airport for when you get back? Do you just strap and buckle the child in the backseat of taxi? Are there any seatbelt/carseat laws in Mexico like in the states?

Anyone currently in Tulum that an speak to the civil stability in light of the hotel evictions and protests this week?
I am scheduled to travel there in late August with my family in tow. We plan to stay at a small hostel (Jardin de Frida) on the outside of town - not one of the hotels affected by the evictions, but I have seen in at least one source that there is concern that there may be more to come. Was this a isolated land dispute, or is it bigger? Am I crazy to bring small kids into the…
