I've already asked the travel insurance company, but they just said to submit a claim and they will either approve it or deny it, 14 days later (which is long after my scheduled trip). Should I just go? [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]
We're heading to Loreto in Baja for a long-overdue escape in early February. We'd love some advice on outdoor activities and anything else worth checking out. [more inside]

We've been to Oaxaca once before in the Spring and absolutely loved it. We are returning for Dia de los Muertos and are seeking tips for the best (and most respectful) way to enjoy the festivities. If you have tips about where to go/what to do during the festival (or things to avoid) please chime in!

We are doing an impulsive, last minute, no research trip to Mexico City, TONIGHT until Tuesday. We like art and music, we like everything from street food up to fine dining, we like architecture and history. We are staying in downtown. Only one of us speaks Spanish. Please blast me with any must-dos!

I'm planning a trip in mid-October, flying in and out of Merida (monkeypox permitting). The way my current plans are shaping up, I'll be able to spend 2 nights at Valldolid or at an eco-lodge outside the Ek Balam site. People who have visited these places before, which would you pick? [more inside]

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!

I'm going to Mexico City in three weeks. Obviously there is a ton of things to do. We are going to do obvious stuff, eg Frida Kahlo's place, Tenochtitlan, Xochimilco. What are some non-obvious things my wife and I should do/look out for? Food, crazy shit, art, really suggestions of any sort are welcome!

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]

I'm going to be in Puerto Morelos (Riviera Maya, Mexico) next week and would love some advice on what to do and how to get around (without a car). Plus: are Isla Mujeres or Cozumel worth the day trip if I can't rent a golf cart or scooter? [more inside]

Somewhere in Oaxaca? or possibly Chiapas? It was at a nonprofit-run cultural arts center that held family-style dinners for travelers to encourage community around food. It required a reservation and I must have read about it in my Lonely Planet. Did it start with ...an N? [more inside]

The trip is already planned. If you have any experience with doing this, please let me know the pros/cons of going this route and any other related advice you may have. Thanks.
