    Cancún Transportation

    The Great Parnassusò Hotel is located at the distance about 4km from the downtown part of which is known as "El Centro". I used to walk there but preferred to come back by bus. There is a public transit bus system, servicing the hotel zone. It seemed extremely cheap for me. You can watch my 3 min 29 sec Video Cancun Walk along the Hotel's Area ...

  • Colectivos

    Playa del Carmen Transportation

    If you want to visit Tulum or Cancun from Playa, you can take a colectivo which is a small minibus. There is no schedule, they leave when they are full. It's 30 pesos to Tulum, 20 to Puerto Aventuras or Cenotes. They leave from Calle 2 between 15 & 20, across from the park. If you are hungry before or after your trip, see my recommendation for a...

    Puerto Vallarta Transportation

    It sounds like the City of Puerto Vallarta designed their public transportation stopping stations so as to unclog traffic and it's design is working. However, this system is costing the public a lot of money! Instead of just paying one fare, they pay two fares even if the same bus is going to the same direction! For example, the blue bus and white...

    Cabo San Lucas Transportation

    We reserved round trip transportation from the airport to our hotel in Cabo San Lucas through Jesus Omar Escobedo Crespo with Cabo Valet Travel & East Wings. The initial communication from the US was perfect. They contacted us via phone and email with arrangements. We were greeted at the airport and taken to our hotel. The driver requested payment...

  • Metro

    Mexico City Transportation

    The best way to move around Mexico City is the METRO. It's fast, it's cheap (each ticket is only MXN $5 = 40 cents of USD and is good for 1 trip including multiple transfers as long as you don't exit the system - new fee valid since 2014), and it takes you almost everywhere (there are 12 lines, the newest one was opened in 2012). You may also try...

  • San Diego Trolley

    Tijuana Transportation

    Since the majority of people going to Tijuana are coming from the San Diego area, it may be useful to know that from most hotels / motels there is a bus that will take you to a trolley station. The south bound, Blue Line Trolly ends in San Ysidro, within walking distance of the border to Tijuana, Mexico. The time it takes the trolley to travel...

  • Pulmonia

    Mazatlán Transportation

    When I was there in December of 2007, pulmonias cost from 30-80 pesos a ride, depending on where you wanted to go. Always negotiate your price with the pulmonia driver, and if he won't come to a price you like ,you can just walk away. There will be another one along in a minute, guaranteed. The biggest thing is to make sure you both come to a...

Look for Estrella de Oro help desk and get your ticket ( ranging from 300 to 450 pesos depending on the category of service - Servicio Diamante is the most expensive one). It takes about 5 hrs to get to the Estrella de Oro Bus Terminal in Acapulco, quite close to Av...

    Rosarito Transportation

    Believe it or Not! These horses were actually offered for hire. They will take you from the main street of Rosarito, down a few blocks to the beach for a 'run' along the Pacific Ocean! I didn't want to go, I was content to sit at the cafe and have a few drinks while my friends rode down to the beach. My friends forced me to join them and the poor...

    Oaxaca de Juárez Transportation

    We went to Oaxaca from Puebla by bus. It’s about 300 km, including about 200km of mountain road, and took us about 5,5 hours. The road seemed to me rather dangerous though very picturesque. I was surprise that we had only one driver for such a long way... The major highways serving Oaxaca are Federal Highways 175 and 131, southwards to the Oaxacan...

    Puerto Vallarta Transportation

    The cab fare from the "Hoteles" to the airport (one way) is usually 80 Mexican pesos. This is the regular price. If you pay more than this, then you are paying a lot! It is approximately 2.5 kms from the hotel to the airport. The hotels are very close. You can even walk if you wanted to.

    Cabo San Lucas Transportation

    I thought it would be difficult to get around and that taxis would gouge me as an American tourist so I rented a car and spent way too much money just to have something to take me to and from the airport. It turns out that most hotels have shuttles available for about $15 per person each way. Much better deal.

    The safest way to get around in Tijuana is by using one of the Yellow Cabs located right at the border as soon as you cross. All the Yellow Cab drivers are insured and are registered.

    Playa del Carmen Transportation

    The central bus station is situated on Fifth Avenue close to the Main Plaza and ferry pier. It's here you can catch frequent buses to the airport and to Cancun. Regular buses also depart here to many of the nearby tourist attractions such as Tulum, Chichen Itza and Coba. These can provide a cheaper alternative to going on an organised tour.

    IMO I think a car is a must in Cabo. Since you are only there for 4 days then make the best of it. A car/jeep will give you freedom to explore. Make sure your hotel gives you or has airport pick up. (expensive otherwise) Check out rentals in town. I seem to remember jeeps were cheaper there Go to MEDANOS beach. also go to the ME of MELIA hotel on...

    Monterrey Transportation

    Taxis are the best way to get around Monterrey. They are pretty cheap and are usually never more than 4 or 5 dollars to get around the city. If you dont speak Spanish try and write down the address where you are going because the driver probably wont speak English. Most places (Hotels & Restaurants) will call a taxi for you if you ask.

    Avoid taking taxis from the street. Better call the "Sitio" ones which are safer or take them from you hotel. If you are in the south part of the city, I recommend you to call the Taxis' Sitio of Perisur. It is more expensive but for toursts is an excellent option!
