Guanajuato – Mexico – GRANDPAcking Costs



Guadalajara - New Bus Station
AUGUST 2016: Click here to read our Mexico Retirement Reviews. OVERVIEW: I made my way from Tlaquepaque to Ajijic. I stayed in a Vacation Rental for 7 nights.

Tlaquepaque - Typical Street
JULY 2016: Click here to read our Mexico Retirement Reviews. OVERVIEW: I had made my way from Manila, Philippines to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and I stayed in the Plaza Santa Maria for 4 nights. I pre-booked this hotel using Expedia and I paid a discounted price of US$29 / night. It was Low Season and this was one of the best rates that I could find … in High Season, it would have been very hard to find something in Puerto Vallarta within our GRANDPAcking budget. Note to self: I may have to get off of the ‘beaten path’ in Mexico if I am going to […]
