This is my book review of the novel "Kingdom Cons," written by Yuri Herrera, translated by Lisa Dillman, published by And Other Stories, London (2017), first published as Trabajos del reino by Editorial Periferico, Madrid (2008).

On the front cover, Valeria Luiselli says: "Yuri Herrera must be a thousand years old...Nothing else explains the vastness of his understanding." By the way, I've reviewed Valeria Luiselli's novel "The Story of my Teeth" on this forum and read her novel "Faces in the…

Hi, We (my husband and I, we are both 60) are thinking of renting a car to drive up or down the coastline of the Baja Peninsula. I only have 3 weeks vacation to do this, and we like to minimize costs and go to less touristed areas if possible. We live in Houston. Does anyone have any advice for us on the best way to do this and places to see?

Hi!

I am looking for a place to sleep between Bacalar and Merida to divide the driving time. 4 hours for my kids would be too much. I can't seem to find an interesting place to stop in between. Anyone has suggestion?

After Meria we are going to Valladolid.

Thanks!!!

I’m currently in Palenque I want to get a bus to San Cristobal, I’ve heard that getting a night bus isn’t the safest option in the world as they can be prone to robberies, however it’s currently my only option as I don’t have a lot of time left on my travels. A lot of posts I’ve read on various forums have mixed reviews and a lot of them of them are outdated. Does anyone’s have any experience with this route at night in the last few months.

Some further information on the journey, it’s an OCC…

Always looking for new routes to/from the border, thus this brief trip report. Didn’t know much about Tula, Tamaulipas, until I zoomed in on Google Maps looking for a hotel, as it seemed about the halfway point to Monterrey. After the fact, I did see a rather comical 3 year old thread about Tula here on TT. I was surprised to see it was a Pueblo Magico, so we opted to stop there for a night. To get there, I took the turnoff of off 57 through Guadalcazar instead of the Matehuala/Tula cuota…

I found this while researching a couple trips through Northern Mexico. I've been on number of these roads, most on purpose, a couple by accident. Perhaps a good resource for those that drive in Mexico (or elsewhere in the world) or like to take off the beaten path scenic routes. There are a few in Nuevo Leon that are quite spectacular.
