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.

August 15, 2006 — Riding long distance Mexican buses can be an excellent way to get around, as in Mexico these buses are widely used. Not only are there first and second class buses, there are also deluxe and executive classes… I’m not sure which of these two is better than the other. Personally I will always opt for the most expensive, as the odds of the bathroom working and the seats having a bit more space between them are better, plus they usually make fewer stops.

I haven’t done much long distance bus riding in Mexico in the last few years, though I used to do a lot. Here are some links:

This is a general primer on riding the buses in Mexico.

Here’s an adventuresome long bus ride in Mexico. If you don’t read the whole thing, scroll down to see how little he saved over airfare.

Here’s one written by an American woman who hates buses in the US.

And I couldn’t resist adding this one: riding Mexican buses with a cat. It takes a well-seasoned traveling cat.

Also, if you go to any page of this site you’re on, mexico-with-heart.com, you can search on the word buses and see lots of other discussions of mine involving riding Mexican buses.
