Mexico Travel Tips & Suggestions

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 …
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.
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 …
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 …
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 …
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)!
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!
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!
This is an amazing spot! You can relax and have fun! Playa del Carmen is a piece of heaven.
I have been going to Palenque since 1971. Find a comfortable spot and melt into the air.
Morelia is a very nice and safe city in Mexico.
Chetumal is the gateway town on the Mexican side of the Mexican-Belize border. Most people use this as a place to transport from one place to the next, as there are not very many attractions in Chetumal itself. The major things to do there are the botanical gardens and the manatee sanctuary. They also have a local …
Puerto Escondido is home to world-class surfing and most people who venture here are out to catch a good wave or to learn to surf. The surf lessons and board hire are reasonably inexpensive but if you are going to stay here for a couple of weeks, it may well be worth your while purchasing your own board if this is your …
Tulum is a quaint town just off the Caribbean coastline. The town has many cool shops, restaurants, and all of the amenities you would expect to find such as a large supermarket and several banks. The most famous thing about Tulum are the Mayan ruins. You can take a taxi, which has a set tariff to get to places; if …
Bacalar, Mexico, is the definition of a sleepy little town -- if you're wandering around during siesta, you might not see a soul. Its position in Quintana Roo near the border to Belize makes it a nice place to stop on your way between the two regions, much nicer than Chetumal. Its location on the banks of the …
Mérida is the stately colonial capital of Yucatán in Mexico. The city pulses with culture, life, and heat -- buy a hand fan, take advantage of siesta, and prepare yourself for a great time. Mérida's main square is a great place to relax. Fairs and festivals are frequent, filling the area with vendors, musicians, food …
Mexico City, called Ciudad de Mexico in Spanish and popularly referred to as DF, is the capital of the culturally intense country of Mexico. It is one of the world's largest and most populated cities, offering a variety of hostels available in all its districts. No matter where you choose to stay, the city is very well …
Guadalajara is the second-largest city in Mexico, and is located in the west of the country. The city has a colonial feel to it, with many old buildings scatted through the city. Most historic buildings can be found within Centro Historico (the historic district). The Centro District of Guadalajara can be explored on …
Ensenada is the perfect city for tourists. It’s a combination of local culture and excellent shopping! Start your visit to an Ensenada hostel by seeing the beautiful Pacific Ocean. In addition to swimming and lying out on the beach, there are a variety of water-related activities. You can choose to go snorkeling, …
Zihuatanejo is situated on the Pacific coast of Mexico, about two hundred forty kilometers northwest of Acapulco, in the area known as Costa Grande, an area now known for its coastal resorts, which were developed in the seventies. The town traditionally was a small fishing town, however now it is more of a resort town …
