How to go to Mexico
How I did it: I walked into a wonderfully priced rental from a woman who couldn't use her timeshare. It was the month of my birthday. No one else could or would go, so I grabbed it and found affordable tickets took off!
Lessons & tips: Be open to new things. Spend time exploring, don't just shop and do touristy things. The people, generally are very nice
Resources: I met a woman on the bus to downtown, who was also traveling alone, and she spent my birthday with me and we hung out for the last two days of her trip. I met a lot of locals and americans.
