OCTOBER 2016: Click here to read our Mexico Retirement Reviews. OVERVIEW: I made my way from Rio Lagartos to Progreso by public transport (local buses). Rio Lagartos was a very quiet fishing village on Mexico’s northern coast with a nice estuary setting. In Rio Lagartos, I stayed in a GRANDPAcking Standard hotel: the Punta Ponto. Rio Lagartos accommodation is particularly expensive for GRANDPAckers; it is very hard to get accommodation for under US$40 / night. I found the Punta going at a discounted rate of US$37 / night including breakfast. This was the most that I have paid for a room in the 2 years that I have been […]

But the Antigue was on the beach road only 50 meters from the beach. I paid MXP500 / night. It was time to head for Rio Lagartos. I planned to stay […]

OCTOBER 2016: Click here to read our Mexico Retirement Reviews. OVERVIEW: I made my way from Valladolid to El Cuyo by public transport. Valladolid was a big disappointment. In Valladolid I stayed in a GRANDPAcking Standard apartment hotel: Gayser Apartments. The Gayser is reasonably clean and pleasant. The problem was that Valladolid, itself, was boring. ABANDONING ISLA HOLBOX: I stopped off in Valladolid because I was making my way to Isla Holbox. I wanted to stay on the beach in Isla Holbox … something that I have not yet been able to achieve on a GRANDPAcking Budget anywhere in Mexico. On my budget, I am limited to no more than […]
