Good afternoon?

Good afternoon sighsee

I am going to travel to Mexico later this year. I have one month. I was thinking about doing a combination of the Ruta de la Plata the Great Outdoors in the itinerary (picture related). You could combine it quite nicely by flying from Monterrey to Chihuahua and then from Culiacan back home.

How do you rate my plan? I speak fluent Spanish and have seen basically all of Latin America.

    Don't go to Mexico. They're raping men down there now. What a shithole.

    I just got back from a month solo backpacking in Mexico so feel free to ask any questions. Personally my advice would be less is more. Actually travelling from place to place is time consuming in Mexico as bus routes are long and domestic flights (while cheap) often get delayed and you can easily lose a whole day on a 90 minute flight. I'd recommend picking a region and staying within it. If you're flying in through Mexico City, the classic route is CDMX (fly in) > Puebla > Oaxaca de Juarez > Puerto Escondido > San Cristobal > Palenque > Tulum > Cancun (fly out). Personally can't reccomend this route enough, but if you want to see the north instead of the south let me know. I've been to Mexico 4 times in the past two years.

      Shitty route tbh, you're going way the fuck out of the way to hit the shittiest of the beaches.

      Also, enjoy getting kidnapped on this route. Only Puerto and San Cristobal are safe here. Palenque is very bad since Corona and as I'm sure you're aware crime in Tulum/Cancun is god awful thanks to Europeans and their drugs.

      If you feel compelled than stay around CDMX. Puerto sucks too tbh but at least it's "KIND OF" safe...

        Fake news my guy. All of Oaxaca state is safe. Chiapas state isn't entirely safe but if you stick on the main routes running between Oaxaca-Chiapas-Tabasco its totally fine. You are right about Puerto Escondido though, I don't really recommend it, but tons of people enjoy it.

          Oaxaca is about as safe as Quintana Roo and Cancun. Don't sugar coat the terror down there.

          Chiapas is full of cartel road blocks too so I don't know what the fuck you're talking about 'safe routes'. San Cristobal is safe because there's a standing army in centro at all times but that's about it. Get in the combis (busses don't run anywhere else) to go to another town and you get roadblocked and bandito'd.

            San Cri has no militia police anymore. Cartels basically have free reign there which makes it more safe than QR where there is a literal war going on with footsoldiers on all sides in Playacar at all times of day. Its all about personal risk tolerance I guess. I never felt unsafe in Oaxaca or Chiapas, but I definitely felt the tension in QR

              >he admits it

              Move on OP and go to Norway where it's safe. Better yet, go to Italy and visit this address in Trento for me.

      No interested in any of those places, they seem very touristy.

      My idea was

      1) Mexico City
      2) San Luis Potosi
      3) Zacatecas
      4) Monterrey
      5) Chihuahua
      8) El Chepe train
      9) Fly back home from Culiacan

        May I suggest taking the overnight ferry to La Paz. It's a pleasant and historic city on the coast of a desert. Then fly (or take a the bus but it's like 24 hours) to Tijuana (this saves you money because you don't fly internationally), cross the border to San Diego (if you fly on Volaris they have a bus otherwise taxi/uber/trolley) and return from there on a budget airline.

          Fuck La Paz and Baja, it's a massive shithole. You're better off going to Tulum and Gangland Roo with Cancun and shit than gay Baja.

          Anything here is better than the tourist trail fuckstick is telling you about. But be advised - they are literally raping men in Mexico right now and if you go to the police they'll laugh and rape you too.

          Don't go to Mexico.
