Planning to travel through mexico for a couple of months, any tips or better ideas? I’ve been all over SEA but latin countries are new to me. I speak a little bit of spanish tho.

Would be going solo and prolly flying to/from cancun.

Forgot to add that I'm gay, so something that's at least LGBT friendly and which might have a few gay bars/clubs around.

yucatan is nice and can last you a couple months easy. playa del carmen, tulum, cozumel, isla mujeres.

perhaps not the most authentic Mexican experience but it's relatively safe and lots of travelers and expats to meet

>Would be going solo
have you gone solo before? I'm considering some solo travelling because I have a voucher I need to use, but the idea feels awkward to me cuz i'm a shut in looser. what do you do when you travel solo? are you ok with being alone most of the trip or are you always meeting new people and stuff?

I'm a hardened Real Traveller and these autists are just nonchalantly navigating their way through Mexico via car, motorbike, on foot...like fuck it.

There's got to be hundreds of murders we never hear about bc I get fucked with EVERYTIME I go to Mexico but I know how to handle myself and what to say even if I'm near blackout drunk.

There is no way you queers are not having problems unless you are just hiding out in hostels, hotels, and resorts (resorts also muy peligroso tho) all fucking day.

I saw a hippy fagpacker get out of a taxi with long hair and his backpack on and RUN inside a hostel in CDMX once. There is no fucking way he was comfortable and enjoying himself unless he holed up in the fucking dorms.
>>
>>2159087
give some advice, whats some quick words to say if you get into trouble? what are self defense laws like in Mexico? I heard you can bribe cops for the most part. Don't be a larping nigger, shed some advice for newbies. I have some friends in Mexico City I'd be staying with, but I wanna tour solo too. I'm 6'2 and pale so im gonna stick out
>>
>>2159142
ok, I am White asf and over 6' tall so I stick out too. Almost everyone is going to be a foot shorter than us.

1. self defense in Mexico no bueno. If it's a gringo vs Mexican and cops are involved you will pay: the COPS and the "ViCtiM" 9 times out of 10. Now I have got into a fight with 2 chinks and the chinks were escorted out of the club the Mexicans had my back.

2. With that said, DO NOT pay cops unless they catch you with a gun or drugs. If they do then the propina will be 500-2000 pesos (YMMV)

3. If a cop comes up to you and asks to search you tell him now. "No drogas, no armas, no propina" if he speaks English tell him he is being racist. Yes, it's a major fucking queer cope but tell them they are picking on you bc you are White or Black for that matter. Usually it's 2 federales or as many as 4 and one of them will more than likely be VERY uncomfortable extorting you and the other pig needs to be aware that his comrade is uneasy with the whole things.

4,. My favorite is to befreiend the young cops and exchange whatsapp. When you show another cop that you have connections he will apologize and send you on your way.

5. You have to stand tall. make eye contact and be assertive but not disrespectful. Some of them will have guns in their hands while talking to you and it def takes some balls and experience to feel comfortable telling a Mexican cope to leave you the fuck alone when he's holding an automatic rifle.

6. They are LEGALLY (for wha it's worht in Mexico) not allowed to touch you HOWEVER some of them dont give af and will do it anyway. However, never touch them unless it is to shake hands and tell them sorry you are leaving.

Obv you have to be able to act on your feet bc every encounter is different. But DO NOT pay these cocksuckers no matter how scared you get. After you tell them to respectfully fuck off one time you will be prepared for every future encounter.

>Now if you are driving or have guns on you diff story...ngmi

then give advice faggot
>>
>>2159366
nah sorry no LARPs here Jose. If you're Mexican or a sperg who never interacts with locals the experience will be vastly different from someone actually doing shit out in public.

>you're either brown or a faggot who never goes outside.

would love to hear where you lived. Please tell me it was Sinaloa or Culican then we'll know who the LARPer is.

Where the fuck are you guys staying where this happens? Never in my life has any of this happened to me and I was in CDMX for months.

I don't look white though, I'll give you that, but even among white people I've met this never has happened.
>>
>>2159419
yeah if you're not a Whitoid you will never experience the systemic racism in Mexico. Also your White frens were prob the aforementioned spergs who never went out at night.

Mexico City has the worst fucking cops in all of Mexico including border towns. The little traffic cops with the sombreros are very nice; however, the federale cocksuckers with machine guns are looking for propina.

Also your Whitoid frens will never tell a Mexican about their problems with other Mexicans bc they are fagpacking poosies. So no surprise.

With that said, I am very grateful for the abuse I have encountered in Mexico bc it has made me a no nonsense motherfucker who has zero problems in other LatAm countries. So I tip my sombrero to the putitos who have tried and failed to derail my Mexican missions. Gracias

>>2159426
Honestly this is kind of insane and I don't believe it. I've literally walked in Tepito high on LSD with two white women at 1am and had no problems. I'm not even joking about this, pic related.
>>
>>2159432

yeah 99% of the time I am fine too. But you're not white, so your experience is irrelevant.

I've even seen Whitish Mexicans get harassed and even after the cops realize they are Mexicans they still proceed with harassment, so you bet your ass some cops will fuck with Whitoids.

Also the cartel members are cooler than the cops and sometimes the cops ARE the cartel members.

I have spent over a year in Mexico off and on and the only place I can say is honestly safe is MOST of the Yucatan. Never had a problem there.

Yes, millions of White faggots travel to Mexico every year without problems but some of them have mucho problemas.

What are you actually arguing with me about? The safety of Mexico?

Just so you know i hate you and want you to die. Mexicans are the worst people on the planet. The fact of the matter that you cant be trusted. You are a people without any real sense of honor or loyalty, cultural criminality is part of your day to day life and existence. And the worst thing about you mexican shitbags? Is that you will NEVER change, but continue blaming others for your shitty lives like the MARK ASS BITCHES you are. FUCK mexicans.

I saw a women get her car stolen at gun point. I was robbed by the cops twice, just a few bucks. Two mexican goblins tried robbing me at knife point. EVERYONE is drunk driving. Outside the cities mexicans dont even have control of their own resources, they are controlled by satanic criminal drug organizations. No road trips or hiking or anything like that unless you want to die. There is no trust in Mexico. Mexicans are the first people i would kill in the event of a civil struggle in the United States. They are all cowards that NEED TO BE RULED THROUGH FEAR. That is the way to rule a shitty short fat brown mexican piece of shit. They like their cartels, they take pride in their garbage culture of criminality, they will never change and keep spreading their shitty God awfulness. Its interesting because they think they are Catholic, which is false. These beaners have mixed their satanic pagan human sacrifice and demon worship with that of Catholicisim. Nothing but blasphemy goes on in that pathetic excuse of a "country"

I lived in Guadalajara. Its like beaners have no inner voice. No inner cognitive function that allows them to function without the constant sound of a gas powered leaf blower, or satanic circus music blarring up and down the streets. Mexicans have no self awareness whatsoever, NO INNOVATION WHATSOEVER. So they flee their slums to do mindnumbing repetitive tasks in the states, while attacking White America for "being racist" OOOOR attacking White America for simply just being better than them in every single fucking way possible.

They are a clown people. A fucking circus clown people from a country of drugs, criminality, demon worship and human sacrific. You cant escape it, its everywhere, lurking, hiding in the shadows. EVERYONE wants to rip you off, EVERYONE wants to fuck with you because thats how mexicans are. They like shittyness because they are a shitty people. Never trust mexicans.

>>
>>2160034

this is me: >>2159279 again

there's a lot of truth in this but some of it a stretch.

+ drunk driving part not true Mexicans overall are Mexicans are pretty sober compared to US Americans. BUT they DO drive like shit but if they were drunk it would be 10x worse

+ the Satanic part, ruled by fear, pride in violence all 100% true

+ Self awareness IS pretty scare but many of them don't even think about the US on a day-today basis

+ the rip off part is MOSTLY 90% true but there are many honest Mexicans with an inner voice/conscience esp if they have money and are doing well at the time of your encounter

+ Mexican men in the US typically self improve while Mexican women in the US might as well be flushed down a toilet

Been driving around Baja for a few weeks, flew back to the states to see my parents, will probably fly back to Baja via Cabo in a week or two and stay till March/April. It's pretty sweet. A lot of "damn I wanna go climb that" looking at the skyline. If there's not too much snow up high I may drive north and take a crack at Picacho del Diablo.

So, anybody been mongering in Cabo recently, and what's it like? How bout La Paz?

Haven't done it myself, but they say that's how it's done. There are parking lots on the USA side and you can get a hotel in TJ.

Mexico is a giant shithouse. Americans go to Tijuana, CDMX, or some resort city (Cancun, Cabo, etc). There’s a reason. Outside those tourist areas it’s either poor, dangerous, or boring af.

>>2162381
Guatemala is rough. It's like double Mexico. Crime is very common, the roads are very dangerous and the government isn't helpful. People are nice but not used to many visitors. Guatemala City is has a lot of dangerous and gang controlled areas but the city probably doesn't interest you. Still, avoid traveling anywhere at night, avoid taking the bus, and ask people if visiting a particular mountain or beach by yourself is a good idea.
>>
>>2161820
I drive in Tijuana all the time but it's really inconvenient and kinda of unsafe to drive around and especially trying to find parking. If you just want to whore monger it's easiest to just travel to the US side of the border and cross on foot then take a taxi (or walk) to where you want to go and get a hotel there. Getting in is very easy, crossing back to the US can be a pain.

>>2162111
I really like La Paz. It's way more trad-mexico than anywhere else in Baja. You can also fly there cheaper than Cabo. It's visibly less dodgy than TJ so idk where you'd find hookers. Maybe ask the taxi drivers. Cabo has a cluster of whore bars by the harbor.

Im thinking about going to Mexico.
I'm not sure I should though, I don't speak the language and I'm not sure how violent and criminal it is there.

My old job had me traveling to all parts of Mexico to remote areas. I stayed in all kinds of cities. Anyway the most valuable skill you can have is to talk to the locals and get a sense of your surroundings. Mexico is safe and also very not safe. It is hard to understand, but even more so if you're a vanilla face. Stick to touristy ares if I was you but you never know maybe you will enjoy yourself

Acapulco is like Rio imo. Big city that's been there a long time. On a huge bay. Water not very clean. High crime. Only place I've had something stolen off my person in latin america. Sketchy outside of the beach/tourist/high income areas. Still kind of a fun place and popular with Mexicans from the inland parts of the country on vacation.

Oaxaca is one of the poorest and most indigenous states of Mexico with some of the most intact indigenous culture in the country. It doesn't have as much of the crime/cartel problem as some other mexican states. American hippies love the place. There are also resorts on the pacific coast (Bahias de Huatulco) that are cleaner and nicer than Acapulco.

Yup, you lived in Mexico alright.

I can tell that, when you first arrived, you had some kind of hope about the country. You trusted people, you were considerate, you tried to like the country and its people. Your tone and vehement hate of Mexico and its people is a tail-tail sign that you have, indeed, lived in Mexico for more than a few months, among its people, and have come face to face with the true nature of the race.
t. lived there for two years, had all my hopes and dreams shattered and shat on, these people will never improve, they will continue to collectively pull eachother down and hate you for attempting to improve your own situation in life.

Wither my beautiful Tulum :(
Last week the new Conrad mega complex opened there, with an adjacent Hilton all-inclusive opening in a few months.

I remember back in 2017 having the time of my life biking, walking and shopping in Tulum, everything felt more authentic and relaxed. But everyone I talked to knew what was happening - they saw it with Playa Del Carmen. The "best kept secret" gets too popular and a fuck-ton of investment from chains basically transforms the place.

Ah well, we knew it was coming - and Id still recommend it to you OP

Idk what the schizos itt are talking about but I car camped in Baja for about two months. Idk maybe it's different there but I was definitely around some of the poorest people ive seen (living in shacks with mad max type cars) and nothing happened to me. I even gave a homeless guy a lighter and he started smoking crack in front of me lol. Some Mexicans are sketchy as fuck obviously, but people on 4chan tend to be horrible judges of character so everything becomes black or white due to autism or some shit.
