Riveria Maya Growing Too Fast

Occidental Grand Xcaret, Mexico - kim10: 2004-09-22

Is Riveria Maya growing too fast?

Occidental/Allegro Grand Xcaret, Mexico - carmel: 2004-09-05

A corporation that doesn't care

jazzie, Mexico - jazzie: 2004-08-26
Amyone reading this should send it along to other countries in the hopes that these large corporate giants can step back from their bottom line and look at their lack of safety and value for human life. When the bottom line becomes your life base, and the . . . more

Unbelievable Tragedy

Occidental/Allegro Grand Xcaret, Mexico - carmel: 2004-08-15
Occidental/Allegro from Spain owns the Grand Xcaret in Mexico--one of many. Brent's family has never received an apology of any kind for killing their only son, which speaks volumes of the corporate philosphy, and lack of compassion. To feel nothing for . . . more

Yucatan Peninsula

Cancun, Mexico - michellebishop: 2002-12-06
Did you know that the best time to go to Cancun is in January and February. This is because the sun is further away from the earth at this time of the year and the rainy season has passed. Less sunburn and less rain. Although there are periodic showers th . . . more

This town is crap!

Real de Catorce, Mexico - anonymous: 2001-05-14
The Lonely Planet:Mexico guide said that Real De Catorce was a town with a touch of magic. Set high atop the fringes of the sierra madre oriental, blah, blah, blah.

I was looking for a place to move to, to practice my Spanish and relax and . . . more

San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico - susan: 2001-01-13

Puerto Escondido, Mexico - dave: 1998-12-18
The man was carrying what appeared to be a quarter scale model of a donkey above his head. This crude wooden donkey-like (perhaps it was a bull) thing had fireworks attached to it, that were violently exploding, and flying off in all directions.

Puerto Escondido

Puerto Escondido, Mexico - dave: 1998-12-14
I decided to learn to surf in Puerto Escondido, the premier surf destination on the west coast of North America.
A word of advice: Don't learn to surf in the premier surf destination on the west coast of North America.
This means BIG wave . . . more

Place of the Dead

Zipolite, Mexico - dave: 1998-12-09
The name Zipolite means (so I've been told) place of the dead. It's a beach paradise, but the water is extremely dangerous. According to the grape vine, a woman was killed the week before I got there.
As a side note, this seems to be a pattern now; . . . more


Mexico City, Mexico - dave: 1998-12-05
It's inevitable. It was going to well. I was too healthy for too long. I knew I was getting a little too daring with the street food. Actually, this doesn't feel like food poisoning. I think it's some kind of flu complicated with the thick polution h . . . more

Why is this clown hugging me?

Mexico City, Mexico - dave: 1998-12-04

The clown was hugging me. "How did I get into this?" I asked myself. It was really a clown, and he was really hugging me, in front of an audience of children, in the middle of one of Mexico City's parks.
I'm getting used to the bizzare. I'm als . . . more


Titojacan, Mexico - dave: 1998-12-03
Half way up the third largest pyramid in the world (the second is two hours, by bus, from here, and the largest is, of coarse, in Egypt) we got accosted by dozens of high school kids. Then the photos began. It took about 20 mintues, but they all needed a . . . more

Mexico City

Mexico City, Mexico - dave: 1998-12-02
Okay, I'll admit it. I was a little aprehensive about coming to Mexico City. Easily ˝ the people that I've talked to, who've been here have been pick pocketed, or hassled in some way.
I expected a very dirty, dark, dangerous place with questionable c . . . more


Near Angangueo, Mexico - dave: 1998-12-01
They come from all over North America. Many fly from as far as Canada, here, to a small grove of trees, not far from a town called Angangueo. It's amazing when you thing about it. I'm talking, of coarse, about the tourists who have come to see the monar . . . more

Bob Dylan and Hitler?

Morelia, Mexico - dave: 1998-11-29

I can't speak German, and my Spanish vocabulary is about 12 words so far. So, when I see a guy yelling that cetain way, into a microphone, to a pacard toting crowd, I am reminded of those pictures that always show of Hitler. Now, the party he was ru . . . more

Dualing Christians

Guadalajara, Mexico - dave: 1998-11-28
The main square of Guadalajara gets pretty active on a Saturday night. In one corner there was a band playing at full volume, and right next to it a woman playing guitar and singing into an amplification system that rivaled the band. The woman's largest . . . more

Good place to see crockodiles and swim.

San Blas, Mexico - dave: 1998-11-25
The guide book said it was a good place to see crockodiles, and don't forget your swim shorts!?!?
Turns out, it's true. I went on a three hour tour, a three hour tour. The weather was as sunny as ever, and beat down on my unSPFed neck, as we rode a b . . . more

TV, extra

Tepic, Mexico - dave: 1998-11-24
There isn't much to see in Tepic, Mexico. It's more of a stop over between places. At least it was for us. The Hotel Tepic is right next to the bus station and cheap. However, we went really cheap. We said 'no' to the TV. A TV in your room costs extr . . . more

The dolphin was drunk

La Paz to Mazatlan, Mexico, Mexico - dave: 1998-11-23
The dolphin was drunk. It was wearing a silly hat, and just looking not looking totally sober. The dolphin was the logo of the cheezy night club aboard the boat and it was on the shirts of the wait staff. You see, the boat from La Paz to Mazatlan had . . . more

Mazatlan on a budget

Mazatlan, Mexico - dave: 1998-11-23
If you are ever in Mazatlan, run, don't walk, run away from the fancy hotels. Sure the beach is wonderful, the restaurants are beautiful, and the pools are warm and inviting. Okay, maybe just walk away, or rather stay a while and enjoy, if that's you cup . . . more

I pooshed de button, and dropped my cookies.

Tiajuana to La Paz, Mexico - dave: 1998-11-17
"Blah blah blah blah" said this guy in military uniform. At least that is what is sounded like to me. I don't speak Spanish. So, I said the only Spanish words I know: "No Hablo Espaniol." He responed to me with "Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah bl . . . more

Oaxaca, Mexico - theplan: 1998-11-06
Well, it has been about a week since our last travel update, and given
the unreliablity of my hotmail access and internet cafes, I thought
