A friend and I will have about 5 nights to spend in Mexico after travelling through Costa Rica in July. We are after some relaxing beach time and Tulum was recommended to us, but after researching we are concerned about the smelly seaweed issue. Any suggestions from the hivemind? [more inside]

My partner and I are going back to Puerto Angel, on the Oaxacan coast, for a week to celebrate our anniversary in the beginning of December. In light of recent events and tensions, how concerned for safety should we be? We are respectful, polite travelers, one of us is fluent and the other tries real hard. [more inside]

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.

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.

A close friend and I are flying into the Cancun airport at the end of the month. We have two weeks, Saturday to Saturday (to Saturday?) and there's so much to see and do. My friend will be working remotely during the day for all but 4 of the weekdays we're there, around the weekend in the middle. Where should we go and what should we do? [more inside]

I'm a woman traveling solo to Mexico next month, and am debating whether I want to stop for ~5 days in Mexico City. Do you think it will be safe and reasonably carefree? Any recommendations on where to stay or where to go (and where not to)? I am an experienced traveler, but I do not speak Spanish and have never been to Mexico before. [more inside]

We decided to go ahead and book a trip to Mexico City/San Miguel de Allende, and have 4 days in each. Do you have favourite places to see, things to do, or tips on amazing food/cafes/restaurants we should check out? Anything you loved and would go back to? Places you wish you'd spent more time? Food you can't forget? [more inside]

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]

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!

My partner and I (late 30s/early 40s M-F couple from the U.S., no kids) will be heading to the coast of Oaxaca, Mexico in March and we're looking for a place to stay near or on the beach. We're interested in all suggestions at all price points. Thanks!

We'll be in Mexico City the last week of December this year, through New Year's. Can you advise us on any holiday events to look into, and how the September earthquake should factor into our planning? [more inside]

We've booked our flights to Los Cabos, Mexico. It was not our first choice but we had airline vouchers and this was one of the more reasonable options. Unfortunately, everything I am seeing online makes me think we are about to have a very bad vacation... any tips for salvaging it? [more inside]

Planning a winter trip to Zihuatanejo with my parents, husband and 18 month old. We've been before (my parents go regularly) but noticed that the state department has changed their recommendations for this state in Mexico. I'm not overly concerned about crime in the touristy areas, but want to be sure we're not being naive given that we're traveling with our son. Would you go? If not where would you go instead for a similar warm-weather trip in Feb?

We booked a vacation to Playa Del Carmen and recent news is making me want to cancel. Have you been to Playa Del Carmen in the past month (July)? Anywhere else in the area you'd recommend for a family? Experiences, suggestions and/or reassurances needed! [more inside]

I am traveling to Mexico July 14 and returning to the US July 19th. I mis-read my passport thinking I had one year left, and now 2 weeks before travel I realized my passport expires on July 24th. I have called my airline, travel agent and passport agency who had told me I "should" be fine, because Mexico only requires valid passport at the date of entry, and since my passport doesn't expire until a week after my travel is complete that I will be okay. I am just concerned about this. I have googled and found that Mexico requires 6 months- but everyone else is telling me I'm fine. I have tried to expedite my passport, but the only appointment available is the DAY before my flight, and they ask you to surrender your passport which makes me extremely nervous. I would rather risk a valid passport than not have one at all and something happen. Any insight I haven't already been informed of to give me peace of mind?
