    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...

    Cancún Transportation

    We were very satisfied with America Car rental. I made a reservation for 2 weeks rental in july. We were picked up from the airport. In 15 min we were at the office of America car rental. Our car was not yet there. We got a free upgrade. Car was perfect. All procedures went easy. The only thing is that you think that everything is insured and then...

  • 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...

    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...

    Tijuana Transportation

    My journey from San Diego to Tiujana then down to Ensenada. I took the green line trolley from San Diego (Old Town) transferred to the Blue line at Imperial Way. You have to walk across the tracks to the other side and look for the Imperial Way Blue line going South to San Ysidro. (Trolley one way cost $2.50 from Old Town to San Ysidro). People are...

  • 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...

  • 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...

    Isla Cozumel Transportation

    After going through the duty free at the docks, we found car rental agencies and a taxi stand, we decided not to rent a car or scooter this time and instead took a taxi. The taxi rates were posted on a board to various spots around the island, downtown was $7, the beaches were $8-$20 for the most southern tip of Cozumel. On the return trip, confirm...

    There's an extensive local bus system here, with marked buses and bus stops. March, 2008- Having spent a lot of time on buses, and it being a long time since I lived there, I still don't remember numbers or routes. I'll see if I can get that information. Two images.

    Loreto Transportation

    One of the biggest issues with getting large shipments of "things" to Loreto is the lack of shipping companies willing to bring things to a location that is far from the "major" tourist locations of the Baja and rather far from most any other place in the Baja (by shipping standards). Compound this with the (typical) condition of Highway 1,...

    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.

    If you like your Taxi driver, get his phone number so you can call him when ever you need him. This way you are familiar with who you will be dealing with. I do not recommend a rent a car because you most likely will get charged an outrageous amount for gas. NEVER travel alone... Always travel in groups around their. Never use your credit card if...

    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. They are also one of the only companies that require their drivers to take random drug tests. Most of the drivers speak perfect English and those who dont do...

    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.

    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!
