    There will be lots of mosquitoes. You should take plenty of insect repellant. I recommend repellant that contains at least 50% DEET, but make sure you read the label before applying it to your skin.

    You should also ch…
  • Hi,

    I never had any bad experiences there, but yes, it is just like any other city in the world; problems do happen. However, it is certainly not known for its violence. See what other backpackers are saying on Lonely Planet's Thorn Tr…
  • Hi,

    Take a look at this: http://www.kumuka.com/TourPage.aspx?ContinentId=ca&TourId=ca14

  • Hi,

    You have picked two of the biggest tourist destinations in Mexico, so either one will be very touristy. Out of the two that you have chosen, Baja California is less touristy than the Cancun area, especially once you head north of L…

  • Hi,

    I lived in Mexico on Isla Mujeres for 2 years and never had any problems regarding safety. Of course, you hear about things happening, just as they happen in my own home town. Unfortunately, in this day and age nowhere is "truly s…
  • Hi,

    There is loads of information on Lonely Planet's website, including where to stay, what to see, etc. You probably need about 4 or 5 days for it to be worthwhile:

    Centro Banamex has many branches scattered around the city. You can find all this information on Google Maps. Simply go to this link http://maps.google.com/ and type in "Mexic…
  • Hi,

    Yes, La Fortuna is the town that serves Volcano Arenal. You can either stay in the town itself, which is 17km from the Volcano with access to restaurants, bank, bars, supermarket, etc, or stay at one of the lodges on the road that …
  • Hi,

    Yes, you will need inoculations for Ecuador. Best thing to do is to contact your local doctor or travel clinic who will provide you with up-to-date information regarding which inoculations to have, as well as prescribing Malaria ta…
  • Hi,

    You can probably book a local tour at your hotel reception. You should try to see the Zocalo, Cathedral, Palacio, Anthropology Museum, Templo Mayor, and the Teotihuacan Pyramids.

    The taxis operate a good service from the airport. Once in…

    Mexico City is at 2,000m altitude, so it will be warm during the day and chilly at night. You might get some rain as well.
