I love tipping employees but that’s because I worked about 10 years in Las Vegas Hotel and Casinos of the 47 years I’ve lived here, so i enjoy paying it forward, especially after Wayne Gretzky gave me my first $100 tip when I drove limo for the Sands Hotel and Casinos in the late 80s! Thanks for the tips!

Alexis Cordova says:

Don’t talk to the lay boys at the party strip. I’ve been there 5 times. They look like lady’s hence ladyboys


200 pesos is $20 and if you want to go to war think about 100 pesos you idiot

Some good advice… Bring SPF 100 sunblock. It helps A LOT.

MrBighitch says:

Do u recommend going out even with all the violence going on right now or do u think we’ll be alright to see the mayan pyramids?

Eye Cyou says:

You can download an app on your phone that will convert pesos to dollars . I used it in the Dominican Republic and it was very helpful .

Hello Wolter…my father’s name, but spelled Wa…

#1 Question
Thank you for your videos. My name is Golden (from L.A.), I am a new (solo) traveler, but not a smart solo traveler. What I mean by that is, i do not know how to really navigate the system to find good hotel or other places to stay for a cheap price. I have been using Traveladvisor, Expedia with points that I have earned, etc. Can you share how you go about finding cheap ( and nice of course) places to stay?
My second request (if you don’t mind). Again, I am a new traveler and I recently visited Sri Lanka (I am currently working in Saudia Arabia) and the UK – Norwich, Norfolk. While in Sri Lanka, I used a travel company (paid for the trip to different cities and hotels) which was extremely nice. I had a great tour guide.

I noticed a lot of solo backpackers were touring different cities and I was wondering (which I should have asked) how did they manage to get there (because it was quite a distance from city to city) if someone is not driving. I do understand the train which takes a person so far, but how do they reach the other cities?

I noticed from your videos that you drive to different locations…:) but maybe you can share some insights as a backpacker.

Thank you kindly.

Another DON’T that you should add. “DON’T WANDER BY YOURSELF IF YOU’RE TOO DRUNK!” People take advantage and WILL still from you! Happened to my brother-in-law. We were at the COCOBONGO and he went outside for some fresh air. Some girl stole his gold necklace and money too I think.

aldo castellanos says:

Don’t visit Cancun; visit Monterrey, San Miguel, Querétaro…

Vexxed says:

I’m Canadian and my mother was diagnosed with Lyme disease and we need treatment but it seems to be cheapest in Mexico so we are heading there but am curious if we will be treated poorly because we are Canadian please comment if canadans are welcome.Thanks

Gretter Pastrana says:

Thanks for the advises. I got here from your Don’ts in Italy. I love Cancun. Probably the only thing I don’t agreed with is carrying around dollars. You definably want to carry pesos because the exchange rate they give you is not accurate with the rate at the exchange houses. You end up paying lot more if you pay with dollars. They have exchange houses all over town.
If you plan on doing lots of tours, it would be better for you to rent a car. You will visit lot more places, at your own pase.
I highly recommend doing the water parks. Xcaret is amazing. Only comparable with the best of Disney World. Stay until the closing show. (We will visit Xplore and Xochimilco on our next trip.)
Have fun.

I wonder what a holiday in Juarez is like

phoebecatgirl says:

Good advice – I went there a LONG time ago (1986) and had a great time – visited the pyramid and ball courts as well as the cenote. it was incredibly HOT there, but also saw the observatory and other buildings. Had a great chicken lunch at a local place, and took the trip back to the timeshare that was out place. What a wonderful outing it was – bought some nice blankets, too!

Jesse Wightman says:

Heres a BIG dont!!! Dont listen to this faggy ass fat fuck! Fuck you walter you fat fuckin faggot

Boat Lover says:

Rather than exchanging money, far better to have a couple of US credit cards that do not charge foreign transaction fees. You’ll get the best exchange rate on your charges and not have to worry about changing money. Might not help you at a small local merchant but overall, a much better way to go.

Omar Chillstep says:

— $100 Pesos is a lot of money for tip

Ld Shadowlady says:

I just came back for there it was beautiful <3

DRB Soccer says:

You got everything right, especially the water, we were at club Med and then I got sick because I drank the water, the driver is also important, look for the one that has a sign with your name on it

Alix Lattanzio says:

Thank you! I was getting overwhelmed with bad reviews about AI resorts and now i understand why. Such great advice! This is my first time booking a trip to Mexico and I just want to get the best experience i can get.
