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.

Vignettes of Ensenada, Mexico

Vignettes of Ensenada, Mexico

Ensenada is a city on Mexico’s Baja coast, about 77 miles south of San Diego. Locals call it the “Cinderella” of the Pacific. I have no idea why they call it that, but I do know it’s a beautiful place. Take a look at Michelle Rae’s gorgeous pictures and see for your self!

ANOTHER SPUR ON THE ROAD

Having finally decided on Ensenada for our Thanksgiving getaway this year has me all excited, even though I have a few trips scheduled before that. What can I say, I loved our first visit there and I’ve been wanting to go back ever since. And it wasn’t just because of the tacos… although I must admit, it did play a big role.

Sadly, while we’ve got our hotel room booked already, Thanksgiving is still a few weeks away. So for now, I’m settling on looking at (and sharing with you) my photos from our last visit.

Come enjoy them with me…

Mexico City is one of the largest metropolitan centres in the world and it is the oldest capital city in the Americas. Home to 9-million inhabitants (26 million in the greater region), Mexico City is also the largest Spanish speaking city in the world!

Containing over 300 neighbourhoods and 16 different boroughs, Mexico City can be quite overwhelming at first. However, many of the main sites are located in the historic centre – making Mexico City a little bit easier to navigate.

Home to a cheap and extensive metro system (introduced in 1969), Mexico City can be efficiently explored via subway – linking travellers to every area of the city. Furthermore, in recent years Mexico City has phased out the use of diesel buses and a new modern rapid transit bus has been implemented into the city.
