Mexico Hostels


Mexico Travel Tips & Suggestions

The great thing about Mexico City is that you can get your own hotel room for about 200 pesos (about $20 USD), which is only a little more than the hostels, if you want more privacy. Though I believe most of them are in the Centro Histórico, which tends to die down at night (though that's great if you want to sleep in …
I spent a summer in Guanajuato two years ago. It's a charming town, take the tram up to see Pipila and enjoy the multi-colored houses from high up. See the creepy mummies and markets, and just relax. While it's not as lively as Mexico City, Guanajuato is still a good place to spend a few days.
Rosarito is a cool safe city with a crazy inexpensive nightlife. I hooked up with people at the hostel and had a blast! I ended up staying a coupleof months!
San Miguel de Allende is a great colonial town, unique because of its large artist population, and galleries galore. There is a lot to see right in the city center, and amazing hot springs (La Gruta is very neat - with a cave) just outside. There are a lot of restaurants with very good food (and desserts...), and the …
if you go to Isla Mujeres, you should try to eat on the restaurants by the beach and eat a shrimp cocktail or ceviche! It's delicious. Go to Caracol and Playa Tiburon -- great views!
Morelia is a very nice and safe city in Mexico.
I have been going to Palenque since 1971. Find a comfortable spot and melt into the air.
This is an amazing spot! You can relax and have fun! Playa del Carmen is a piece of heaven.
Merida is called the White City. The Paseo Montejo is a popular avenue that crosses all of the city, it has beautiful French-style houses, full of trees, and lovely people, delicious food, and relaxing atmosphere.
Campeche... We are so lucky that we stumbled upon this hidden pot of gold. The walled city is something that should not be missed. This quaint town has a colonial feeling with clean streets, bright colored buildings, a gorgeous town square, art and music. We all agreed this was one of the top highlights of our trip …
Cabo San Lucas is the only place in all of Mexico that I did not enjoy; I think it's because there were too many wealthy, entitled tourists there (the locals were not their usual friendly, festive selves)!
Reading a well-known Autralian guide about Mexico, coming from a visit to the U.S., I was planning to stay only one night in Chihuahua and its only hostel. This was my first time in Mexico, and I was not sure about what I could expect, between great food and sulfurous reputation. I actually found Chihuahua to be a …
San Cristobal de las Casas is such an amazing town filled with bright colors, friendly people, and a variety of music. December couldn't have been a better time to visit considering all of the holiday festivities. It is definitely worth time spent traveling. Don't miss this beautiful oasis.
