Americas - Mexico

As the subject line says, driving to and from Mexico. Going south on I-35 maybe about 30 -40 minutes north of Laredo you can get free WiFi access at the Texas Tourist info location. There you can check on all the bridges in the Laredo area by using this link.
The pictures are stills but update every few minutes.
I am going to Mexico this September with my wife. We are looking for a place for 4-6 days to chill out. We are going with our friends (couple + 2 small children). We are looking for a quiet place by a beach/lake where we can relax. Any recommendations?
We will have a car with us.
I've heard of "Valle de Bravo" which seems nice but I am afraid it will be too crowded and touristic (like Acapulco).
Would appreciate any idea or comment
Going to be in Mexico City in August with family (two teenagers) and would appreciate advice on any good spectator sports to see. Is it soccer/futbol or baseball season? other sports that are popular? Thanks.

Has anyone done this pilgrimage without a tour group? I'd like to know if there are public transportation available to go from Meico City to Tulprtlac? Then from Mexico City to Puebla and Tlaxcala and back to Mexio City? Then to Ocatlan then back to Mexico City?
Hi I will fly into Toluca on 7/20 1pm , then stay 3 days (sat-Mon) in Oaxaca for the festival which is 7/23. my flight leave Toluca 7/24 2pm.
I'd not rent a car, but take the bus/shuttle.
it seems like the viable option is TLC --> Mexico city -->OAXACA. I have two questions
1)any direct route from TLC to Oaxaca?
2)to catch the tuesday 2pm flight, it seems I need to leave OAXACA Tuesday early morning (very early), otherwise I most likely will miss the flight. Any other option?
I can't leave on Monday because of the festival is Monday.
Planning a trip from San Francisco to Mexico City where I'll be spending a few days with a friend. I then want to head to a beach for some R&R. I'm not much of a party person and want someplace chill but not too chill that I'll be bored. I've been to Tulum and really liked it but found it outrageously expensive. Didn't like Cancun at all after checking it out on the way out of Mexico. In other words, I'm looking for someplace laidback but comfortable and cheap.
.Is that asking too much?
I'm willing to do an open-jaw trip (e.g. SFO-MEX, CABO-SFO) with an internal flight with a low-cost airline.
Are there cheap fares to Central America from Mexico City in case that's an option?
Thanks in advance.
I am scheduled to visit Mexico on a business Visa next week. I have applied for a month visa.
How difficult or easy it is to get my visa extended further in Mexico. My cities to visit there is only Mexico City.
PS - I am from India and have an Indian Passport.
I travel with my guitar and was wondering if anyone knows of guitar lessons in Puerto Vallarta. I'll be at the Holiday Inn Resort.
Greetings, fellow intrepid travelers. Has anyone out there fairly recently done the river boat trip from Benemerito de las Americas, Mexico to Sayaxche, Guatemala or in reverse? If so, any thoughts you may have on whether it was worth the time and expense would be appreciated and some specifics such as time, cost, etc. would also be appreciated. I am thinking of doing the trip myself. Solo traveler. Thanks. Keep on travelin!
I am planning to go to visit Mexico. Is it easy to find parties in Mexico. Can the local taxis help? I am going in November. I am in my early 50's. Any help out there? Sugestions?
Twice in the past, 15 years ago and 8 years ago I spent 2 weeks each time in Cuernavaca, studying Spanish at a great school and living with a great family thru the school. The same wonderful family each time. (The school says these people are no longer available to do this).
I love Mexico, the warm friendly Mexican people and I love the Cuernavaca area. Both times in the past I felt totally safe wandering the streets day or night. Now in checking on line for news reports there is mention of some drug cartel problems and crime, although I realize that mostly it's cartel members against other cartel members. The question is, would I find Cuernavaca as safe today as when I was there before, as an American tourist/student, or at least reasonably safe?
Also, I'd really love to find the same family. I think it's possible that the school is simply out of touch with them and doesn't w... more »
We are going to be in Tulum for a couple of nights at the end of July. Most of the beach accommodation is beyond our price range ($70 a night). Can anyone recommend a nice play to stay in town which has a swimming pool and pleasant rooms, ideally with air-con? If you do know of any decent beach cabanas within that price range we'd also be very interested but we wouldn't mind staying in town as we will have a car.
A friend of mine is heading to Cancun today on his honeymoon I just seen Cancun is expecting stormy weather this week. Any suggestions of what they could do if the weather does turn terrible....
I´m planning a trip to Puerto Escondido in mid july. My main purpose is surf, dive and snorkeling and i wonder if anyone have been there recently, after Carlotta. I´ve searched the net but could´t find any recent updates.
I'm so sorry to ask, I know there have been so many similar posts and I have read them all (and some of the itineraries offered by package holidays and tour group providers) but I am still so unsure as to whether or not my rough itinerary is do-able, and even if it is do-able, if it is advisable!
My partner and I (both 29) will be travelling into Mexico City from Havana in January for 20 days, flighting out of Cancun. We like immersing ourselves in culture, enjoy history, love food (one vegetarian) and enjoy the beach but couldnt spend days laying on one. We are from Australia so it is a really long way to go and we want to see as much as possible, but would prefer to spend at least 2 nights in each place so we are not constantly travelling. We are happy to take internal flights instead of buses if required.
So my thoughts are:
1. Mexico City;
3. San Cristobal;
