I flew out of there to CDMX in December without a printed pass, personally
I'm going to try and find somewhere to watch the Eagles v. Buccaneers playoff game tomorrow in Playa Del Carmen. Let me know if anyone is interested and I'll post where I'm headed once I figure it out.
Thank you all. This community is amazing when it comes to sharing experiences! Really grateful!
Decided it's not worth the risk. Will still stay for a few extra days to soak in the sun but will either go back and try a student visa or something or just return again at some point and hope for the best.

Dope, let's do it!
Can someone recommend a good area to rent in Playa del Carmen that isnโ€™t too noisy? Traveling with my 4 year old so just would like a chill spot if possible.
Last time I was there (pre-kid) it was just noisy everywhere I went. but surely there must be spots!
Everything to the north of Calle 44 Nte
is silent. Or the best location in my eyes is playacar
Playacar - is that a sort of gated community type place?
Also ideally trying to avoid a place devoid of locals. My wife is mexican and donโ€™t want to go where itโ€™s only americans (no offense to americans like myself :P)
Is there a reason to be closer or further from the beach?
North of 44th ave there donโ€™t seem to be many Airbnb
Playacar is good for kids and a mexican wife. If not, try Zazil-ha
in playacar there are only rooms in an all-inclusive resort
Hello. We are flying to Cancun on the 24th of January. Planning to stay in Tulum for 1 week and then to PDC.
Decided in the end to spend time in half-moon bay in Akumal. Could be worse ๐Ÿ™‚
My wife and I are in PDC for the next few weeks, would be happy to meet up for drinks or dinner at the tail end of this week. Let me know if is anyone around / interested !
Hey I might be down to join for the second half if you do go somewhere. Lemme know
Will be around too. Did you see the meetup for tomorrow in pdc? Any hint how to find an affordable appartment outside of Airbnb?
Hi Michael, I'd be up for that on Friday. Also doing the meetup tomorrow :)
Same. Maybe a specific airline requires printed copies (unlikely), but the airport is surely fine with digital
Good choice, the restaurant there is a bit overpriced but really nice. Very quiet but good atmosphere in half moon. You need a car there,I guess you know
Yeah we got one. Probably wonโ€™t move around too much anyway.
I think you will :wink:. There is literally nothing there, just the beach, which is nice but not the one where you want to spend all the time, and one restaurant. Puerto Morelos is nicer to not move, nicer beach IMHO, and several food options, besides the snorkel, which is the main attraction.
The thing is with a 4 year old, you donโ€™t move that much ๐Ÿ˜†
but we have some time to check both areas
puerto morelos does look more walkable
Anyway, booked for 5 days in Akumal. Then weโ€™ll see.
Hey, Iโ€™m trying to plan my trip to CDMX with a friend. Sheโ€™s only staying 48hours, and wants to know if itโ€™s simpler to get tested at the airport, or try to coordinate beforehand. Has anybody been Covid tested at Benito Juarez?
Ah dang. Sorry I missed this. We'll likely watch again next weekend though so will let you know
I think the most efficient is to schedule a test appointment at Farmacias Ahorro. Then, you won't have to wait in any lines, and when departing, just go to the airport with the usual 3 hours before flight. You can get the test any time the day before flying.

Benito Juรกrez is a very large municipality. I did get tested at a pharmacy there in the Del Valle neighborhood. It only took 20 minutes.
Sounds good
Cool man lmk if/when you get here and we'll meet up
๐Ÿ›ฌ qyxtuice just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ Playa del Carmen, #mexico
Great, see you guys tomorrow!
I got tested at that airport Nov 20. No line, 20m start to finish. Typo on my birthdate. Results were fast.
Thanks so much y'all
Welcome! You landed just in time for our meetup today ๐Ÿ™‚
Hello nkzoobgi I'm also looking to move to Puerto Escondido soon and am very interested in the results if you ended up testing out the starlink there ?
I haven't received it yet.
Hey nomads ! I'm moving to Puerto Escondido with my boyfriend in in March, do you have any recommendations for accommodation ? Is airbnb the only place to find good listings (they all seem quite expensive tho) ?
See you later ๐Ÿ‘‹
Hey uthmppvhr ! Check out some Facebook groups (think theyโ€™re called puerto roomies or puerto housing) - you can find cheaper accommodation there. Also have heard when youโ€™re there and start looking you can get better prices :)
does anyone in PDC want to hangout by a beach today? Thinking mamitas
Cool I will be at the meetup also!
Iโ€™ll be there too starting Thursday (if all goes well). Maybe we can organize something.
๐Ÿ›ฌ jlbtinnb just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ Puerto Vallarta, #mexico

Cool. Post a reply in this thread or DM me and we'll set something up!
I'll be arriving in a weeka nd looking for a place too. Hit me up if you have questions before March!

Guys the meetup was so much fun, more than 25 lol! I added a few pics on the| website
Sorry just seeing this and in PDC now. There wasn't any to my knowledge but in general you can check here for nomad list meetups|
Was really nice seeing old faces and meeting new people. Thanks guys
hey guys, for visa on arrival in mexico, do they check if all your booked accommodation dates match up to when youโ€™re flying out? I know you need a return flight and proof of where youโ€™re staying but im wondering how strict they are
I would play it safe and make them match up. Many hotels have 100% refund policies up to 24 hours before checkin. I booked a Holiday Inn for a month and printed out the confirmation just in case. I canceled online once I got into the country
Hello fellow nomads. next month weโ€™re flying to Cancun and I wonder if itโ€™s a bad idea to stay there (or around) for 1+ month?
we visited PDC before & Tulum. and the wifi there was okay. But we also want a good places for kitesurfing. any thoughts?
my experience has been good wifi in cancun area, have not stayed for more than a week though
kitesurfing was a big thing in holbox. but wifi is terrible there, so donโ€™t plan to work there
Thanks okrhfkzzhg but would you recommend Cancun or itโ€™s overwhelmed with tourists?
personally i view Cancun as an access hub to the places i want to go. its toursity, especially in the hotel zone
so it depends on what you want/need to do
for example, you can get good lodging and coworking options in cancun and then just take ado buses to destinations on the weekends or time off
I wouldn't stay in Cancun that long, too touristy and mainly just for staying in resorts
Hey, Iโ€™ll be in PDC in February, chose that over Cancun as its a bit cheaper and less touristy.
No. I came in through Cancun yesterday and got the full 180 days. No return flight. The lady asked me how long I planned on staying and I told her that I have no clue. Didn't ask for accommodations or anything. Someone told me to dress โ€œrichโ€ and just tell them it's vacation if they ask why you're here.
Ah, sorry, qroqxhglbayog only noticed your thread just now. We've flown in from Cancun airport.
It is pretty laid back still right now. Pretty much everyone wears masks even outside and restaurant take your temp and sanitize your hands. But even though it was announced that you'd have to show vaccination or test to enter buildings since last Friday, we haven't had any of that happen to us yet.
We did a road trip around Jalisco, and we were constantly wishing for an SUV, as we were driving a regular limousine.
Some roads are really rough, and in some protected regions, the roads are specifically built to be annoying to drive to keep you from speeding.
The toll roads were generally better, and some of them even allowed for pretty good average speeds. On some of the toll-free roads, the speed limits are all over the place, where you sometimes have to drive at pretty low speed for prolonged distances just because.
Thanks for sharing! ๐Ÿ‘
We do have a Jeep Grand Cherokee and weโ€™re used to driving on dirt roads over here in Baja +1skin-tone-3
One thing that is really annoying is that the speed bumps (which can be really bumpy) are not always properly announced, and they are often "cloaked" on the roads by the shadows of the trees. So depending on the time of day, it is really hard to see them. Always assume that there are speed bumps while entering as well as while leaving a village... as noticing a speed bump too late will really hurt both your car and your back.
ntifriehzx Does he speak English?
rwovzvfyymbn she does speak English (the person whom I emailed with). In my case her grandpa/dad/uncle (?) is who met me at immigration and I donโ€™t think we even needed to exchange 10 words. We signed in, we sat in the waiting room, then I was taken into the person who processed me (he then went somewhere else and met me when we finished). I didnโ€™t understand when she asked me to move my hair behind my ears for the photo but with some hand signals I figured out what she was asking. All in all, I donโ€™t think there was much actual conversation that took place.
Itโ€™s going to be a case by case basis - specifically meaning itโ€™s based on the officer you get. Like anything in life some are sloppy, others are strict, etc. ๐Ÿคฃ Not a clear answer I know but itโ€™s the reality of the situation.
:wave:impromptu Guadalajara drinks tonight! Made some new friends while in Tequila this past weekend, and we're going to a cantina tonight. rkgqpmusasqmfdz and all others reading this are welcome to join, DM me to be added to the Whatsapp convo.
Iโ€™ve only ever been asked how long, never asked for proof of accom or return flight

No one really stays in Cancun, except if you are staying for a conference, or niche activities
haha sorry wrong convo
Unfortunately my laptop got stolen.
Looking to buy a MacBook Pro ASAP (maybe could consider an air) in Mexico City. Used or new. Any leads appreciated!
Apple Antara
+52 55 4739 3890
That's an official apple store. My understanding is that they don't sell laptops with English keyboards though. I've heard that they can do a special order but it takes time.
And sorry to hear about your laptop getting stolen. ๐Ÿ˜ข
Yayy we should all meet uphugging_face
We are arriving on Cancun Airport on Monday. We are vaccinated but I am interested if we need to take any COVID tests prior the flight or in the airport? Thanks
You can look up requirements for any destination country, your specific passport, and flight origin at| />
This is the same database most airlines use at their check-in counters so it's comprehensive and generally accurate.
So sorry to hear it got stolen (muy triste)
How did it happens? ๐Ÿ˜ž
Just a quick shoutout to ieqgurhsxckxg for putting together a PDC meetup this Monday. Incredible turnout and a really fun evening of socialising/networking! partying_face
Just missed that by landing yesterday :smiling_face_with_tear:
Seemed like a fun time! ๐Ÿ‘
Oh no! Lo siento mucho!

I upgraded to one of the new 2021 MBPs, and have my old MBP here in CDMX. I was keeping it as a backup computer, but would be pleased if it went to good use. It's a 2015 MacBook Pro 13" 8GB/512GB. I just had it serviced new batteries, top-case, keyboard, trackpad, and CPU thermal paste. The screen was replaced 2.5 y ago. It feels like new. PM me an offer.
yes, those 3 are the best apps, tho Hinge has less local people
Well do another one next week
