driving tips ....
making any turn in Mexico ALWAYS look both ways to check for traffic.
Beware when turning left from the highway. If there is a special lane
provided do as you normally would but look behind making sure traffic
is clear before you turn. Someone may try to pass you. At other times,
when making a left hand turn from the highway in more obscure
locations, ALWAYS check your rear view mirror first! It is customary to
pull off the road to your right, put your left blinker or emergency
flashers on and wait for traffic to clear. With no one else in either
direction make your left turn.
traveling on the highway be alert and vigilant for aggressive drivers.
Let tailgaters pass. Drivers in the on-coming lane may choose to pass
and cross the centerline of the highway at unexpected times. Be ready
to move right.

arrival terminal, the driver will be holding a sign for you. This is
recommended for early morning and late night arrivals, when the bus
service is not operating, since the taxis often hike up their rates in
the knowledge that you have few available options.
