San Diego-Tijuana: Like a bridge over troubled borders...

PHeymont ·
At a time when border crossings are getting harder in many places, they just got easier at a pair of airports, right across the border and road from each other on the U.S.-Mexico border. By a happy accident, San Diego and Tijuana have twin airports facing each other, and now they have a bridge connecting them, allowing U.S. passengers to fly to many Mexican destinations by crossing the road; at the same time, Mexicans heading for U.S. cities can change planes to fly from San Diego. The key...

Re: Cruise lines drop Puerta Vallarta over violence

PHeymont ·
I was in Puerta Vallarta in June last year. Not the friendliest place I've been to. It was a busy working city. Not the sanctuary of paradise I was expecting. Very disappointed. So many arrogant people. I was moved twice from room to room in 2 weeks. Each time the Staff at "Secrets" said it was for building repairs. Each time a Wedding Party with 4 adjoining rooms moved in. The Hotel told my tour operator it was my own fault for asking to be moved.
