Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would have come at a different time.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Some hostels in San Cris are not well managed. Avoid the cheapest ones you find on booking . It did rain for 2 days like crazy in Mazunte my kitchen got overflooded cos of a small hole in the wall. I rented a scooter that died on the second day because the battery was out.

  • How was the food?

    San Cris Loving hut Tok tok wok La Xangarra Palenque Don Mucho's Zipolite/Mazunte Chiwi's Gecko creperia Azúcar Morena Arena Negra

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Avoid sitting on the sand directly it might not be so clean there is a common bacteria that might affect your butt's skin.

  • Packing tips?

    Mosquito spray and all food or medicines that makes your tummy strong against parasites.

  • Transportation Tips?

    Colectivo or shuttle bus. Taxi for short trips into town.

  • Any surprises?

    Some bookings havent been made by the hostel ( san cris ) so its good to have verifications and a personal message from them or a plan B

  • Booking details?

    For Mazunte and Palenque On booking its more expensive if you can its better to come to the hostels and ask them
