Best way to get high speed data on my American phone in Mexico?

I'm traveling to Mexico next week and instead of buying the (expensive) international data pass through my American cell provider, thought I'd see about getting a Mexican plan with an eSIM, but it's horribly confusing (which maybe speak more to the general poor state of web search.) Looking for recommendations. Thanks!

Yucatan in August?

SCUBA certification in the Caribbean or Mexico

I used to SCUBA dive quite a bit in different parts of the world. It's been about 25 years (!) since my last dive and I'm ready to have another go at it. I will get recertified since it's been so long. My 15 year old daughter will get certification for the first time. [more inside]

Insurance options The "Alamo Protection Package" seems to include the options above it (third party liability and collision damage waiver). But it also says that "APP is not insurance". Does this mean that it's different from picking the third party liability option separately? [more inside]

Family trip recommendations!

We're going to Mexico! My family of 5 (two adults, three kids 7, 5 and 1) are FINALLY taking a vacation. First stop is XCaret for 5 days and later to Oaxaca for 8. We have a few things lined up for Oaxaca like a two day hike to Santiago Apoala, but what else should we not miss? A bit about us: we love hiking, kids don't complain and love the outdoors; we like great food and art and are very relaxed. I don't like to plan a lot, but my husband does. Thanks!

¿Puedo llevar una cachimba a México?

I am going to Mexico tomorrow by car from the US, and I can't find an authoritative answer on whether I can bring in a hookah and its supplies (shisha tobacco, coals). I know I should have no problem bringing the hookah back to the US. Kindly share your wisdom if you know, or can effectively search the Spanish-language internet, which I cannot, as I don't speak Spanish. [more inside]
