I'm planning on traveling around Mexico from May 11th to July 1st. I want to travel cheap, staying in hostels, home stays or with some host families. I want to avoid tourist places like Cancun or Puerto Vallarta.
I have taken Spanish 101 and 102 so I speak a little Spanish. I want to immerse myself and learn as much as possible about the culture, the people, the language, oh and the cuisine!
I plan on walking across the border from San Diego to Tijuana and than taking a bus into the interior. I definitely want to spend a week in Mexico City and i would like to visit Morelia and Oaxaca. I am still researching on what other cities or towns I should visit.
As of now I am planning this trip alone but I may meet up with some travel buddies along the way. Im 32 yrs old, male caucasian. Is $2000 enough for a six week trip. That would be about $325-$335 a week or $45-$50 a day.
Thanks for reading. Any advice or suggestion are much appreciated.
