Opportunity for travel to Mexico + injury: go or no?

I have an RSI that, with aggressive rest, has finally begun to calm down. It doesn't take much walking to aggravate it right now. I have not been able to find wheelchair rentals in the areas we are traveling to. I can rent a wheelchair in my home city, but am not sure how the logistics of that would work out, hopping three flights. We are traveling with friends, and I am not willing to curb their activities.

Woops, that was it back there... Can we just back up?

So, someone I know just crossed into Mexico by car at San Ysidro/Tijuana and didn't pull over at the INM for their tourist cards. Is there a way to get back to the INM office without recrossing the border? Can they go to the INM office at the airport?

Frida Kahlo Museum - photography permit?

Will be heading to CDMX next week and have reservations at many of the main attractions, including advanced tickets at the Frida Kahlo Museum. I read in a couple of spots that you have to have a permit to take photos? Does that include all photos? Or just photos with a camera that is not a phone? And if that is the case (I have an actual camera that I will want to take pictures with), how do I get a permit in advance?

Travel, behavior, safety recommendations for Oaxaca, Mexico

At the end of June, my sweetie and I will be traveling with a group tour/class in Oaxaca on prearranged flights, in prearranged lodging and mostly prearranged eating and activities for 2.5 weeks. There will be times we are at liberty, and we've already had the class' orientation, which focused, in part, on travel safety and habits. But I'm wondering if my fellow MeFites have more tips and ideas? [more inside]

Cabo for a long weekend in February

We (2 adults) are considering a long weekend in Cabo in February. Tickets are pretty cheap and it isn't too far. We aren't party/resort people, so need suggestions on where to stay, eat, and things to do.

Show me the natural beauty of Mexico

I find myself without a home in Mexico for three weeks so I thought I’d go poke around. I like natural beauty, generally on a grand scale. Difficulty: I can not leave Mexico, and I’d prefer to stay out of the western areas for safety reasons.

Semana Santa in Sayulita

Soooo-we are heading to Sayulita, near Puerto Vallarta, Saturday for a week for Spring Break. We knew we’d be there during Semana Santa (Easter week) when we booked, but I don’t think we realized how perhaps bad of an idea this might be. And now I’m seeing online posts that indicate we are doomed to be stricken by norovirus and soaked in sewage for the week. Help! [more inside]

Mobile data in Mexico

My partner and I are traveling to Mexico for 12 days next month and would like to know about the easiest and most cost-effective options for mobile data for our smartphones while we're there. (Whether that's a SIM card, an international plan, etc.) We both have iPhones. She has AT&T and I have Verizon (both based in the U.S.). Not particularly concerned about talk & text—just want to be able to get online. Thanks!
