6 months in Mexico :)« on: April 19 2013 08:04:00 »
Hey everyone I'm from south Australia.. I'm going On the adventure of a lifetime next year and starting my travels with 6 months in Mexico ... The questions I have are 1- how cheap can u actually live ( hostels , cheap food etc )
2- what are some of the better spots in terms of waves ( I like big barrels and big sucky air sections ) like I don't like pussy weak waves ... 3- do u think $15,000 Australian could last 6 months?
Any information would b much appreciated as I'm travelling solO and haven't been to that side of the world before :) cheers

uhh mexico is my favorite place on earth!! super nice surf, cheap and delicious food, cool people and loco fiestas. I recommend La Punta, Puerto Escondido- nice little village by the point break and only 10 min walk on the beach to Zicatela (Mexican pipeline). u can buy a tent and camp at the beach to save money. Its several of good spots around P.E area. Make sure u spend some days in Chacagua- beautiful place with awsome surf!!

thanks fellaz im frothing ay.. it almost sounds like 6 months may not be long enough... if i would like to stay longer do you know if it is as simple as just getting a plane to somewhere near by and staying a couple of days, so then when you return you will get granted a fresh six months.....? or will i have to contact the embassy in my country as it will be a bit more complicated than this?. a working visa would be good, but i think i will have to start learning my spanish pronto !!

I'm also going to Mexico for 6 months to study at the uni there and I'm well keen to get some surfing in! How experienced are you with surfing?
Maybe we could trade your surfing knowledge with my spanish/mexican knowledge? XD
