Are you planning to find something interesting in Mexico? You definitely need to learn as much information as you can about this country. According to this, you need to remember a couple of simple tips. Of course, you can learn them on your own from your own experience, but it takes you about a couple of months to live in a new country. That’s why it is much better to learn from the mistakes of others. Thus, if you are planning to travel all over the country, you can take a car for rent from Alamo GDL. Look through the tip № 4 from the list below!
“M” on the restroom door means ladies’ room!
Everything is simple, looking for the ladies’ room you should pay attention to the room with the letter M on it. That’s because women in Spanish means mujeres. If you need a room for men, it is better to find the door with H on it, meaning hombres. English speaking tourists used to divide restrooms for M (men) and W (women) and often go wrong.
Walk more and go outside the city far from the touristic routes!
This is probably one of the most important advices. Mexico is very colorful and interesting country, full of adventures and touristic attractions. There are many different touristic routes here. So, there is nothing bad in visiting such popular touristic beaches as Riviera Maya and Tulum. But it is overcrowded here. People from different regions come here to take some beach rest. Stop! Mexico has much to offer! It is very important to go out of the city borders and explore everything around. Go to the mountains, quiet fishing villages, hidden beaches.
If you cannot drive a car you should take a bus!
Mexico is very large country. It is even bigger than you think! Of course, the best variant to travel over the country is rent a car. Alamo gives you the cheapest prices here! If you prefer buses to cars, you should read this! Buses are also rather cheap way to explore Mexican villages. They are available of different lines, brands, prices. The cheapest buses are called primero and platino. The buses of the 1st class in Mexico are even better than buses of the same class in the USA! Can’t believe this! All of them are equipped with comfortable seats and rest rooms.
So, if you are going from Mexico to Cancun, it is better to take a bus of the highest class. It would be cheaper and even more comfortable than traveling by plane.
Pay with peso!
Of course, Mexico is a touristic country and the most of the museums, shops, hotels and other popular places take US dollars to pay for the service. There is no need to take peso. Nevertheless, if you are going to travel somewhere outside the city, you’d better to take peso. Village people don’t take dollars and you can hardly pay for your glass of water in the local bar with your dollars.
If you want to do money exchange, you’d better to take a special international card that gives you a good exchange rate. There are many online services that give you a special card. You can pay with it for different services commission free. Also, you can take bonuses for your purchases. That’s great! But you need peso to pay far from the city center.
Have extra time for everything!
Time! It is very important to have time to see everything in Mexico! Whenever you go, you have to take some extra time to see more and learn more about the place you are interested in. Also, you can meet a lot of interesting and often wild places on the way. You want to stop the car, go out, and take some time to explore places around. The most of the monuments here are worth your attention. So, be careful with the time!
Attention! People in Mexico are not exact about the time. If you had a meeting or an excursion to somewhere, don’t be surprised if that person will come later, much later. It’s not because their impoliteness or bad behavior, but it’s rather because of their local traditions. They don’t care about time! Your Mexican holidays will be good if only you’ll always have some extra time. Forget about the time concept at all! Just relax and enjoy your holidays!
To make a conclusion, traveling to Mexico is interesting and safe. Millions of tourists come here every year and get their positive experience. Touristic business is well developed here. Local government gives all they have for protecting and entertaining tourists. They are friendly and helpful! If you want to make your trip more comfortable, these tips will help you to improve the quality of your vacation.
