Isla Mujers? Tulum? Playa Del Carmen? Given this vague itinerary where should we stay? [more inside]
I flew into Cancun from the US yesterday and stupidly did not check the expiration date on my passport. The US Consular Agency in Cancun opens 8AM tomorrow, and my flight back to the US is at 2:30PM on Tuesday. I'll go to the Consular Agency as soon as they open, but does anyone know what I should expect? Is there a chance to receive emergency travel documents on the same day, or will I have to change my flight?
We are planning a beach vacation (for about 7-8 days) in Mexico in next few months with a 5-year-old and an 18-month-old. We are planning on spending most of the time at the beach or around the pool. Might for an excursion, if it’s something that we can handle with an 18-month-old. At night, we like the option of getting out from the resort and walk around the streets (if it’s safe) and maybe try street food. No nightclubs for us. More information inside [more inside]

In a couple of weeks we're visiting the Mayan Riviera for the 4th time. But it's the first time we're renting a car. What do I need to know about driving along the highway between Cancun airport and Tulum? And where are the best places to get groceries? [more inside]
I have a couple (6!) cavities to fill and would like to get it done while I'm on vacation in Mexico for 2 weeks. Any suggestions? All the threads I could find were a few years old, so I figured a new one wouldn't hurt. Thanks!
I'm going to be spending a couple of weeks in the yucatan peninsula with my girlfriend, mostly staying in inexpensive hotels and hostels. We're flying home out of cancun, and her parents are going to meet us there for a few days. We don't have a huge budget, but would like to spend a couple of nights at a decent hotel with a nice pool. Being all inclusive isn't important to us, if there are decent restaurants nearby. In fact, being on the beach isn't that important, if we can get to it without too much hassle. Any suggestions for places to stay? I'd like it to be less than $100 a night per person.
I'm flying into Cancun in the next few days, and since I'll be travelling south from there, I'm interested in a rental car. Please help me not get ripped off. [more inside]
In about a month, 3 friends and I are going to an all-inclusive in Cancun. I'm fairly well-travelled, but I prefer going to cities and exploring around, so I've never done a cruise or any type of beachy resort vacation. What kind of tips/tricks does Metafilter have for getting the most out of relaxing, and drinking tropical drinks on the beach all day? [more inside]

Mexico beach filter: Is there anywhere I could go on the Yucatan for a low-cost, laid-back, bohemian-esque week on the beach this November? Or should I stick with the area around Zipolite on the Oaxaca coast? [more inside]

Can you recommend a good all-inclusive in Cancun (or nearby)? I'd love especially to hear from people who have had good experiences somewhere recently. Most important criterion: it must be truly all-inclusive! We don't want to face any unexpected costs. [more inside]

Next year, I'm traveling to Cancun, Mexico with my wife and our two-year-old. We plan to stay in late March for four or so days. Where should we stay? What should we do? [more inside]
I'm planning a quick three day trip to the Yucatan, and need suggestions for a nice, quiet and local town to relax by the beach and spend time around nature. [more inside]
A recent vacation has reminded me of the pleasures of doing absolutely nothing on holidays. So, does anyone have experience going to an all-inclusive Caribbean resort as a single? Is it all couples and families who want to keep to themselves, or are there specific resorts aimed at this market? [more inside]
We (two Seattleites in their mid-twenties) just booked plane tickets to Cancun over New Year's. I'm not interested in all-inclusive resorts or clubbing or vegetating at the same stretch of beach for an entire week. Now what? [more inside]

I'm headed to an all-inclusive resort in Cancun this weekend, and I was wondering about the tipping etiquette. Though officially, tips are included in the overall cost, I've read online that it's wise to tip anyway. Does anyone have any experience with this? [more inside]
Family vacation to Cancun area - where should we stay? [more inside]
A friend and I booked a ten day trip to Cancun at the end of this month last night. We'd like to make our trip as cheap as possible, as we just graduated from college and are currently without paycheck. We're planning on backpacking and only staying in hotels when we have to, but we're into the fishwatching scene. [more inside]
Hubby and I are planning a last minute trip to Mexico. We're going to fly into Cancun and don't plan on renting a car since we're on a tight budget. We'd like to find a beach campground that's along the Caribbean Sea where we can stay away from crowds and just relax and maybe even do some shore fishing. Would be great it's within walking distance to a small local restaurant of sorts or even if it's just stalls. Does one exist? For the life of me, I have not been able to find any budget beach camping information online. I guess what makes it more difficult is that we'd like to be able to get there by bus and/or colectivo, if possible and it will be during the holidays! I knew I should have researched before booking but we got a good price and well...it will be winter and we could use the sun! Anyone BTDT? :) p.s. I'm totally open to suggestions! TIA!!!
