This itinerary will likely change and possibly be disregarded.
to Yuma, AZ $180
Stay with Mom & Dick -- 16 miles east of Yuma near foothills of Gila Mountains. Explore desert and mountains, prepare for excursion into Mexico, have Bloody Marys for breakfast, etc.
Yuma city: 32.7647 N, 113.8972 W
San Luis to Guaymas $30/bus
Casa de Huespedes Lupita (Calle15 No. 125) between Ave 10 and 12 near bus stations. $10/double. It's possible we could be going through Guaymas and Mazatlan during Carnival, which means finding a place to stay is unlikely....Also plan on looking up my friend Profesor Jesus Roberto Samaniego Cortez, who I met on my last trip and who tends to open doors to many strange adventures.
Guaymas to Mazatlan $40
Last time here, I stayed in the heart of Old Mazatlan, at the Hotel del Centro (Canizales and Juarez) between the Mercado and the Cathedral. $10/night or less is typical....I also plan on reexperiencing my favorite Mazatlan meal: The comida corrida (the daily special) at La Fondita (Escoedo and Serdan) a small, family-run restaurant with six tiny tables -- Pollo con Mole, arroz, sopa de pollo, refried beans sprinkled with cheese, hot tortillas and a pepsi -- $1.90....From Mazatlan I went east via the ferry across the Sea of Cortez to La Paz, Baja Sur....All points south of Mazatlan are unfamiliar territories to me.
Mazatlan to Guadalajara $45
Hotel Hamilton (Madero 381) $8/double in the Centro Historico. Or, Posada San Pablo (Madero 429) $10 - $13.
to MexicoCity $35
Hotel Montecarlo (Uruguay 69) $11. Close to Zocalo.
MexicoCity to Oaxaca $35
Hostal Santa Isabel (Mier y Teran 103) Bunk

Many cheap places to stay, in town or along road to ruins (!).
