Travelling to Mexico for the first time!
Posted January 9th, 2013 - 10:14 am by from Brisbane, Australia (Permalink)
Hello guys. Cheng here. Chinese Australian currently live in Brisbane, Queensland.
Booked in a trip to Mexico and Guatemala for Easter break in about 3 months time. Stumbled across this site and group and thought I might be able to make some friends and meet up while I'm there. Cramming hard for Spanish and Lonely Planet at the moment...but nothing beats the must dos and sees from the locals!
Initial plans are Mexico city, San Cristóbal de las Casas, Palenque, Flores, Lanqui, Antigua, Guatemala city, but probably wont be able to make it all as I only have about 9 days in total...what are your guys thoughts?
Also, would I need to carry some amount of US dollars around as I saw comments about ATM scams? How safe is the crossing the boarders between Mexico and Guatemala?
