My Top Tips for Travelers to Mexico

Another wonderful and helpful post by Ted Campbell at No Hay Bronca Blog!

No Hay Bronca

Mexico is one of my favorite countries to travel in, and not just because I live here, but because of its incredibly diverse landscapes, friendly people, excellent food, and low prices—especially for those with U.S. dollars, for which the exchange rate is quite good at the moment.

You can plan any type of trip in Mexico: budget backpacking or high luxury, adrenaline or relaxation, culture or nature, a long-term adventure or a quick weekend—the possibilities are endless. Like for anywhere, a little information and preparation will greatly improve your trip, but knowing what to do may not be obvious, especially the first time around.

With this in mind, here are my top tips for first time travelers so you can plan the fun, safe and economical adventure of your dreams in Mexico.

Now this is an Easter Celebration

Nothing is ever boring in Mexico, including Easter!

on my horizon...

How do Mexicans and Expat US citizens celebrate Easter Sunday?

They burn a bunch of effigies of undesirables and Judas figures…. and for the finale they exploded this figure in a blue suit with bouffant hair.

The sign says: DONALD, pero no el pato (but not the duck). There was no doubt and the many US refugees in the crowd loved it as did the Mexican families. What a difference from sitting in Church for your Easter Sunday tradition.

You can find nice beaches all over Mexico’s 5,800 miles of seashore, but when you picture paradise, you’re probably thinking of the Mayan Riviera, the 90-mile stretch of Caribbean coastline from Cancun in the north to Tulum in the south (and beyond to Punto Allen, by some estimations).

Cancun, the unofficial capital of the Mayan Riviera, is famous for all-inclusive luxury resorts, with all-day pool parties and all-you-can eat restaurants. Similar though larger resorts are all along the coast too, like fancy communities with private beaches and activities for all ages.

But, while the beach may be the big draw in the Mayan Riviera, those who venture out of the resorts (or stay elsewhere) can explore ancient Mayan…
