I'm planning a trip in Mexico spanning 3 weeks across June/July.
I was just wondering what the Oaxaca coast / Puerto Escondido is like at that time of the year. I'm a lone male traveller in his late twenties - like to socialise but do not need crazy parties and want to spend at least part of my trip relaxing on a beach somewhere. (i.e. not looking for the Cancun experience)
Will PE be too quiet and dead at this time of the year? I don't mind chilled-out, but I also wouldn't mind…
I need to get the Yellow Fever Vaccination because of my travels to other Central American countries. I would like to get it in Mexico City which will be my first country on a long backpacking trip.
Any reliable places I can obtain the vaccination and certificate?
Would it be (reasonably) safe to self-drive the trip behind the Google Maps link below with a rental car? If so, does anyone have advice for where to rent an affordable one that you can take across those borders? If not, what might be the best alternative way to do this? Many thanks!
I recently spent about 4 weeks travelling in Mexico. I stayed in Tulum, Valladolid, Merida, Campeche, Palenque, San Cristóbal de las Casas, Oaxaca and México City.
I visited many archaeological sites during my stay - Mayan sites at Tulum, Chichen Itza, Uxmal, along the Ruta Puuc, Palenque and Tonina, as well as the Zapotec site, Monte Alban, also Teotihuacan and Templo Mayor, in Mexico City. I had also previously visited the Mayan sites of Tikal and Yaxha in Guatemala and Copán in Honduras…
Me and my partner are going to be in Tulum (6 days), Playa Del Carmen (6 days) and Isla Holbox (4 days) over December 2018/January 2019.
We know all the "touristy" things worth doing in these spots, but we love a bit of adventure and if there are experiences that are off the beaten track that are worth doing we would love to hear it!
We are both young and physically active so if its a little tough that isn't an issue, and we love nature and history. Willing to make day trips from these…
First-time visitors to Guadalajara who know next to nothing about the city, planning to stay around the Plaza de las Nueve Esquinas. We'll be arriving in town around 21:00 at the Antigua Central Camionera, and it looks like an easy enough walk (10 blocks, give or take). Just wanted to check on what the neighborhood is like around the old bus station, and whether it would be foolish to walk with our luggage, rather than take a taxi.
[Walking Tour of the Nine Original Taxco Churches ~(Suggested)~ by Pernel.
The 'Parroquia de Santa Prisa & San Sebastian' is at the heart of Taxco, on the zocalo, but there are also eight more 'original' churches and they can all be seen in a easy day's walking tour. I advise you start the tour after a good breakfast with an under $2 taxi ride up to the Guadalupe church which sits 'high atop a craggy outcropping' and is the most arduous climb on this tour, but hey if you feel strong just climb…
Hi - i want to rent a car for a week - pick up and drop off in Puebla - seems a lot of challenges to book via the web as most agencies don't include all the insurance cost - AVIS seem to include comprehensive insurance but are pretty expensive (although is this what all the others end up costing when you turn up to get the car + insurance ?) - any recommendations ?
