US to Mexico travel, expired passport one week after arrival

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?

Any travel tips for Mexico City?

I'll be traveling by myself to Mexico City in June, staying there 4 nights and 3 days. I've never been there before but have traveled alone for a similar length of time in Spain and Italy. I'm working on learning Spanish and looking for some advice on what to do/see and how to get there. [more inside]

Off to Mexico City! What's cool?

Hola!, The wife and I are off to Mexico city during the week of July 4th. We've got reservations at Pujol and... not much else! We're fairly adventurous travelers and while my Spanish ends at 'Si', hers is close to fluent. We like to eat, are big frequenters of Atlas Obscura and don't mind a little discomfort if it leads to adventure. What's the coolest stuff in Mexico City? (And, perhaps, what should we look out for?)

All inclusive Mexico in the summer...worst idea ever?

We are tossing around the idea of taking our two kids-7 and 11- to Mexico this summer. Ideally, we'd do a week someplace like Sayulita, where my husband could surf and we could explore-and then a week in an all-inclusive where we can relax and kids can run wild and we barely pretend to parent.

Is this car rental price in San Jose Del Cabo too good to be true?

My brother and his partner are traveling to San Jose del Cabo Mexico and are trying to secure a car rental for the trip. They have done some research online and have found a cheap fare on Travelocity through Budget Car Rental, but it's not at the airport. We are trying to get a sense of whether: A) The price might be too good to be true (ie. hidden fees etc...) the fee is stated as $75 for two weeks which seems ridiculous to me. B) Is it safe to be renting anywhere outside of an airport. Does anyone have experience with car rentals in or around this area and could offer some advice or suggestion.

Any American Expat bars to watch the election in Mexico City?

Hello, I will be in Mexico City next week and I’m trying to find an American expat bar that will be showing the coverage of the election. I’d prefer a place skewed towards younger people if possible. I got to watch the last election in an expat bar in Buenos Aires and it was quite an event. If anybody can help me out I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Driving my Mexican bought car into the USA as a US citizen

Hi folks, I have a car that I bought in mexico, used, that is in my name and I am planning on driving it from the Yucatan into the USA. I obviously don't want to drive it all the way through mexico only to be turned away at the border with all of my belongings, so any info is greatly appreciated. I am hoping to keep using this car - a 2008 toyota in good condition - while I resettle back into the USA. I know there are some requirements for emissions and other standards, so again - any info you all can give is greatly appreciated. Thanks
