If you are interested in planning a trip to mexico off the beaten path and away from tourist locations, let me share some of my tips with you!
Do your research for safest areas to travel. There are so many resources online. Also check my travel post , link below, all about where we went.
Decide on a budget for the trip, and let that determine housing ,activities, etc. I always go over a bit, but it helps to keep this in mind.
Plan activities your family or travel partners enjoy. We have a family counsel and discuss what we will do. Then everyone is vested and enjoys it.
Make sure your passports are in with plenty of time. Processing is really slow these days! Give yourself plenty of time.
Respect the culture. Do your best to communicate with the locals, Google translate can be your best friend if you aren't fluent.
Try new foods and new experiences! One of the best things about traveling to a new culture is to immerse yourself in that culture.
Decide how you will document and remember the trip. Camera? Phone? I use a combination of both.
Don't be afraid to rent a car and get out there! We did and loved having the flexibility.
That is it! Get out there and adventure. Mexico is waiting!
