A Quick Update

In 2010, we moved back to the small town in Colorado that I never stopped missing while we lived in Mexico. Now I sometimes miss Mexico, but I wouldn't travel as freely as we did when we were there, camping out in remote areas and so forth.

Mexico today is in a period of change, and in many ways it is more dangerous now. That said, I have plenty of American friends who still live there very happily, just taking a few more precautions than they did in the past.

Just to say!


Visit Expedia…

Expedia is my favorite place to book airfare, and they handle hotels, car rentals, cruises, etc. I like the organization of the site for figuring out what flights I want. Click on the suitcase to take a look.

I was very pleased to win an award for this blog! Even better for you: click through for lists of all sorts of award-winning travel blogs.

Mexican food offers an amazing variety of regional specialties, delicious sweets, and bizarre items you may want to try. Even if you are quite familiar with most of the items on a Mexican restaurant menu back home, there will be a lot of mysteries once you arrive in Mexico.

The Mexican maps published by Guia Roji are the best ones we have found, and other travelers have said the same. They are not completely error-free, though, as we noticed a few times. We have gone searching for roads they have marked in yellow, only to find that they don’t exist! This 8.5 x 11 […]

I almost didn’t buy Frommer’s Mexico 2009 , by David Baird and Lynne Bairstow, as I already had Lonely Planet Mexico and the Rough Guide to Mexico. But then I remembered that  when we roamed Mexico in our RV with just the Lonely Planet, I had wished I’d had more Mexican guidebooks. I’ve been very […]

Information for Travel, Retirement, Investment, and Affordable Living is the subtitle of this updated classic by John Howells and Don Merwin, and that  sums up its contents well. General information is followed by comments on different places. If you want to read one book on this topic, Choose Mexico is an upbeat overview. I have […]

Ken Luboff has been writing about how to live in Mexico for years now. He’s easy to read, clear, and neither too rosy nor too pessimistic. Living Abroad in Mexico is a good general overview, much like his earlier Adapter Kit in Mexico. You might want to get it if you are considering whether Mexico […]
