Traveling In Mexico – ADO Buses Part One

Posted by | Mexico, Traveling Tips | No Comments

While public and private road transportation might be horrid in the United States, in many other countries around the world it is comfortable, reliable and affordable. Such as with ADO, the transportation company whose buses serve the central and eastern parts of Mexico from Mexico City to Cancun.

Cristina was born and raised in Mexico and has used ADO hundreds of times during her life, while I myself have been using them extensively since first arriving in the country in 2010. If you want to travel in this part of Mexico in style and comfort without flying, this is the only bus company to work with.  Read More

If there’s one thing that comes up at the top of my list as far as “necessities” go as a full-time traveler, blogger and social media addict, it’s accommodations. And not just a place to sleep.

Every year, we like to include an updated version of our spend while living in Cancun.

It was confusing as hell when I was at TBEX a few weeks back, because there happen to be two of us named Tim who live in Mexico. Myself, obviously, but for those of you weren’t aware of it, renowned travel writer Tim Leffel also happens to be based out of Mexico, although he’s far more north and west of where we are in Palenque. He currently lives in Guanajuato with his family.

Along with being in the industry for well over a decade and authoring the World’s Cheapest Destinations book as well as running the associated blog, he also heads Perceptive Travel. Earlier in 2013, he and I got to talking in emails and Skype about a few things related to living in Mexico and the whole “cutting your cost of living into a fraction of what it was in the U.S.”.  Read More
