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 5, 2005 —  People often ask us, “Isn’t it awfully hot in Mexico in the summer?”

Not in the central mountains where we rent a house. I’ve been checking the temperature in Queretaro, a city less than an hour’s drive from our town of Bernal, for the past couple of weeks, just for fun. It’s been running in the mid to high 70s at the hottest.

That’s cooler than when we left late in May. It was getting into the high 80s in May in Bernal, which is a little cooler than Queretaro as it’s a bit higher. But people told us that as soon as the rainy season began, things would cool off.

Now Merida or Puerto Vallarta would be a different story…

Here’s where I check Mexican temperatures: http://weather.noaa.gov/weather/MX_cc.html

There’s a list of about 60 locations in Mexico you can check. San Miguel de Allende is not among them — use Queretaro for it too.
