    Michoacan to Oaxaca
    I'm planning a trip from around Oct 26 to Nov 4 and want to take in the Monarchs in Michoacan, to Frida's house in Coyoacán to Dia de los Muertos in Oaxaca and would like best travel route and trip advise, por favor? Muchas gracias, Tracy

      Dear Tracy, What a wonderful trip you are planning! Your three destinations/experiences feature some of Mexico's most incredible treasures (and three of my top favorites)! If your dates are firm, I suggest this sequence: Oct 26, 27, 28 Mexico City, Frida's Home/Coyoacan (SO much to see & experience in Mexico City)!; Oct 29, 30, Nov 1, Nov 2 Oaxaca...to be there during the height of festivities and experiences; Nov 3, Nov 4 Michoacan, Monarch Butterfly Sanctuaries...making this your last stop may allow more time for more Monarchs to have arrived at their over-wintering grounds. Of course, all subject to tweeking. Do you need assistance with trip planning, accommodations, expert guides? I know Oaxaca, Mexico City, & Michoacan and have expert contacts in all three destinations. I recently arranged a romantic engagement proposal in Piedra Herrada's Monarch Sanctuary with special accommodations in nearby Valle de Bravo, a "Magic Town." Please contact me if you need assistance. I would love to help plan your fabulous adventure!

    Transportation between Cancun and Riviera Maya
    Hello, I need transportation from Krystal Grand Punta Cancun to Dolphinaris Riviera Maya on Sunday, May 22, 2016. All the companies I have contacted only provide transfers to/from the airport and not from a Cancun hotel to Riviera Maya. Do you have any referrals to a company who will be able to provide this transfer? Thank you.
    • Aimee Johnson
      5/13/2016 5:32:13 PM
      I suggest you contact Lomas Travel. Otherwise, find out who you booked the Dolphinaris through and get transfers from them.
    • KIM N
      5/13/2016 5:34:55 PM
      Thank you for your quick response. I booked directly with Dolphinaris and they have no suggestions who can provide the transfer!
    • Aimee Johnson
      5/13/2016 5:45:13 PM
      Check with Lomas Travel....I believe their website is www.lomas-travel.com . If you are booking any other tours, check with a tour company such as Lomas or Amstar - their prices include the transfers from your hotel to the tour and back to the hotel.

      Cancun Buses Buses are the cheapest way to get around Cancun and you can get from the Hotel Zone to almost anywhere for only 8.5 pesos (Mexican coins only). R1 – R2 – R15 – R27 all travel within the Hotel Zone although only half of them go as far as Wet n’ Wild – you need to ask the driver R2 – R15 go to Walmart and the Market 28 in Downtown Cancun R1 takes you to Puerto Juarez where you can catch the ferry to Isla Mujeres R27 take you to Plaza Las Americas There is also the Bus One (a white bus) which is the only bus with a/c travelling in the Hotel Zone. This costs 11 pesos. If you want to get a bus to another town or city then you can go to the bus station on Avenida Tulum and get buses to Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Merida, Chetumal and just about anywhere you would like to go in Mexico. The ADO bus service is very comfortable and reliable if you are planning a long trip. Cancun Taxis You can get a taxi anywhere in Cancun. The only restriction is that they are not allowed to collect from the airport. The airport has its own taxi system. Taxi fares are set by how many zones you travel through. It is best to agree the rate before you start your journey and you can find the rates at the front desk of most hotels. Remember that taxis from outside your hotel or restaurant are more expensive than one you hail in the street.

      Check out USA-Transfers.com. They can arrange any private transfer from Cancun Hotel Zone to anywhere. Email them at http://www.entertainment-plus.net/contactus/. They will provide you with a quote. I book them whenever I want a private van for my groups.

      Thank you all for your assistance! I have found transfers for my excursion. Below may be useful information for other travelers: Lomas Travel was not able to provide this transportation service and referred me to hotel concierge. Cancun Discounts was not able to provide this transportation service and suggested a taxi. USA Transfers was $110 USD for roundtrip. aye-transfers.com was $130 USD amstardmc.com was $140 USD

    russian citizen visa electronic authorization
    Hi! We are trying to get the electronic authorization for russian citizens who want to visit mexico for tourism. However it doesn't seem to work on the new gob.mx website, it simply doesn't seem to exist there anymore. Where can we get authorization for travel or where can we find the new form? Or is it not necessary anymore? Any help would be greatly appreciated as we are leaving in 2 days and it used to take 10 minutes :) Thank you
