The government try to stop drugs. But people have said that it makes worse. I usually looked around the town with local people in the night. But I didn’t ride a bike in the night.
It’s not cheap. I think prices is like the US or Korea. It costs USD 4$~6$ or over 7$ for one meal. Snacks costs USD 1$~3$.
Usually they are so kind and generous. But some people were too friendly and it made me feel bad few times. Almost every people said to me that my house is your house. They are so easy-going and open mind.
There is no shoulder around North of Mexico. But many cars are generous in highway so it was no problem to ride a bike in the highway. But you know there are also few crazy cars around the world. It’s a little bit dangerous in cities. Because many cars drive crazily in cities.
Pemex ,Gas station, is on every 10 km ~ 40 km. But I had to pay many times. If there is somebody, they let me into for free. But sometimes there is no people but auto-machine. It costs 2~4 pesos (USD 10~20cents)
Still I can’t understand that when I buy small bottle of water, then always I can taste something. You know usually water must not have taste anything. But when I get water from the people, then I can taste nothing. The Mexican people don’t drink tap-water but they buy 20L of water for the home. And that doesn’t have taste.
Always if there is Pemex, then you can find Oxxo which is a grocery. Also there are many small local restaurants on the road.
You can find Walmart and everything in the big city.
Telmex is company of internet and every house has that in their home. So it’s no problem to use WiFi if you stayed in someone’s house. I used WiFi almost every day in Mexico. But there is no free WiFi. Even McDonald and Starbucks don’t give you free WiFi.
Every small and big cities have PC cafe and price can be less one dollar (USD).
Motel and Hotel
It can be between USD 20$ to 40$. I am not sure about it.
Local bus is not good but cost is 5 pesos to 7 pesos (USD 30 cents to 50 cents). City bus is very nice and even you can use WiFi in the bus and you can also choose seat. Cost is normal.
