Chetumal Mexico Hotels

So far of the two places I have stayed, Fiesta Inn is the clear winner for its funky style and great location. Hotel Los Cocos is also a popular choice and slightly less expensive. Click any of the blue links above for more information, reviews, and easy planning.

Things to do in Chetumal

Aside shopping and movies, which is why most of us living in Belize go to Mexico, there are many interesting outdoor activities and things to do in Chetumal.

Grab a map and take a walk or a pre negotiated taxi ride around town and soak up the unique colorful culture. If your Spanish is not great remember your phone translator. You can also have a few lines written in advance to let your driver know what it is you want to see. Everything from architecture, to monuments, a Mayan Museum and more.

Advance preparation – Download to your phone or print off a city map from Google images. If you do not want to look like a lost tourist while studying it in public, camouflage your map with a book. I used to do that in Belize City. Now I am more prone to pull it out and get help marking locations. It is well worn and has many favorite additions. On one copy I even highlighted my safe walking route.
