I’m going to Mexico for vacation in a few months from now and I was wondering if I can put my clothes and personal belongings inside a duffle bag then put the duffel bag inside a luggage suitcase. Would it be alright to? I don’t want it to interfere with security and the TSA or anything. I just like to carry my duffle bag instead of a suitcase every where I go whenever I visit a new country. For flight purposes I want to stuff my duffel bag in a luggage suitcase. Will it be fine? Would they allow me to?

YES…………as long as the weight/size is under the airlines limit (ASSUMING YOU ARE TRYING TO CARRY IT ON FOR "FREE")

I’m moving from the US to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico and just rented an apartment with my Mexican boyfriend for 5000 pesos/mo. Its a nice place for our price range with 2 rooms and a kitchen/common area but it’s unfurnished which, around here, seems to be less common. Most of the apartments are completely furnished and come with mattresses and random pieces of furniture, couches, some with AC and others don’t have a refrigerator, and you have to put in your own boiler for hot water. Our apartment is completely bare and certain things are much more expensive and less available here than in the US and I’m trying to figure out the best way to purchase furniture on a budget. Certain things are much more expensive here than the US and we have less places to choose from. There are a few basic places that have small selections of reasonably priced items but still not like the bargains I can get at home. For instance there is a walmart, sears and sam’s club here which offer a few options but nothing special. Like, walmart has a few standard mattresses that might be cheaper than sears which has nicer furniture but much more expensive. There’s nothing comparable to a sleepy’s or jordan’s furniture. There are furniture stores here and in cancun but they are pretty much all priced for rich tourists who buy condos on the beach and live or rent here. We need to get a mattress and refrigerator. Those are the most important things and the mattress I want to buy new– the fridge I’d rather buy new. Next on our list are a small washing machine, split AC unit, boiler for hot water, couch, table, chairs. The small washing machines aren’t too expensive but decent furniture is very expensive. For the appliances we’re looking on Andale which is a mexican version of craigslist and for the furniture we might try and hunt around cancun. Can anyone suggest a better way to go about acquiring these things on a budget? Despite the better prices and selections I’m pretty sure that shipping from the US is too expensive unless someone knows of an alternative way of doing so. I know Americans and Canadians have furnished places here and they mostly have a large enough budget to shop locally but I figure there’s someone whose figured out a way to get the stuff they need at better prices??

Thank you

Quintana Roo is one of the most expensive places in the world, everything is more than in the USA.
Seems you should have looked into the Muebles before renting.
So, your boyfriend told you you need a Temporary resident Visa to live in Mexico? An income requirement of $2000.00 a month from a foreign source or you will have to go to Belize and when you come back you will get a new FMM tourist permit. The income requirement is waved if you have around $25,000.00 usd in the bank for each and every yearly renewal. You can now go directly to a Permanent Resident Visa but the income is higher $2800.00 or so
Remember you can be picked up and deported for immigration violation All Inclusive and all at your expense to the US city of your choice.
I spent years in the state of Guerrero .I purchased my furnishings at SalinasY Rocha and Coppel and some things at Elektra.
If you may be interested in a west coast location you can No longer buy a residential Property within the restricted zone with a Tourist permit…You must have a temporary resident Visa at least. Here are a couple properties that may interest you. One on the Baja and others in Acapulco.

BTW you can NOT work in Mexico without an official work permit, extremely difficult to obtain in most cases. You can`t engage in Paid activity while there on a tourist permit.

My bf and I are planning to visit Mexico next summer. I know that the country is a bit dangerous, but what are some good spots for a young couple to see?

Mexico can be a great location for a vacation! If you enjoy history, you can go to Mexico City. It has a historic district, great food, and beautiful cathedrals. Zihuantanejo is a small resort area that is quite laid-back. It has beautiful beaches, ample shopping, and a more quiet atmosphere. Of course you can try Cancun if you are more into the party scene.

Currently me and my daughter are in Mexico for vacations and I want to send her back alone but she is 14 years old. One week after the flight she will be turing 15. On the Delta website it says a minor 15 and up does not need an escort. Can she go on the plane with an Delta escort?

No, it doesn’t matter if she’s a week away from being 15. She’s still 14, sorry.

Can a i enter the us without te letter or what can i do?

Mexican law says you have to have the letter, but, they do not always ask for it. The best I can say is that you probably would be ok at your age. They are more concerned with younger children. My grandkids ( teenagers) have sometimes been asked for it and sometimes not

I indent to go just for 1 day to have a short city tour of Mexico city along with my wife and my 4 years old daughter, on the hop on hop off bus. I am planning to stay in a hotel near to airport so that I can go into city just to take the hop on bus for a day sight seeing and return to hotel (near airport) for next morning flight. Is it safe? Any advice to make our journey safe? Which places should we avoid and what are the main attractions we should not miss? Thanks for your answer. We are Indians.

Mexico city is very safe, safer than most American cities, but I should tell you about the no so safe places, like the neighborhoods just beside the Airport, so do not wonder around outside the airport, go straight to your hotel and take a taxi ONLY in the places call "sitio de Taxis" or ask the front desk of the hotel to get you one…You can also take the subway, only avoid rush hours, that’s before 9 a.m or after 6 p.m, it is very cheap like 25 cents of a US Dollar for a ticket.

My suggestion for a quick trip is go to the main square in downtown ( Zocalo) visit the cathedral and the museum of the ruins of the aztec buildings called Templo Mayor, then ask for something called Touribus, its for sightseeing and they take you around some good spots of the city. If you still have time visit the Anthropology Museum, its a most.

Do not wonder to far North of the Cathedral or wonder East of the Main Square, is also kind of Dangerous.

Yes, they will let you cross but you will catch hell from CBP. Most likely they will notify your parents and hold you for them to come get you
