Veronika Kovacsova: What is the cheapest way of accommodation in Mexico? Are the hostels and camp-sides safe?
Hello, I’d like to travel through Mexico and see all the interesting places. I’d like to get an accommodation that is both cheap and safe. Would you recommend me some web-sides, where I can find it or some particular facilities? Thank you.

Now is not the time to travel safely through Mexico as the drug cartels have stepped up thier violence and robberies on the highways are more common.
There will be hostels and campsites, but there will be lots of distances to cover in between.
If you go south through Baja California, you can find hostels and cheap motels. The motels won’t have websites.
However entering through mainland Mexico, there will not be many places until you get to the larger cities. For your purposes, I would take a look at Colonial Mexico:
And for Hostels:
If you camp, only camp at regular campgrounds that are supervised, and don’t be off by yourself.
I would consider using Coach Busses in Mexico. These busses are very modern and the way to go in Mexico. You may consider making Mexico City your main base or landing point, and then branch out from there… like the spokes on a wheel, with Mexico City as your hub.
Some find as another option. This is where individuals offer a place to sleep for free… usually just because they want to do the same thing when they travel, or they enjoy meeting new people from around the world.
Safety is always an issue, but it is important to note that no tourists have been impacted by the drug cartel violence… fortunately they have only been targeting each other, and the occassional corrupt cop. The situation is getting better, but avoid cities like Ciudad Juarez, or pass through quickly!
Good luck. Mexico has a rich history, and I am sure you will love it.

Maybe Quintana Roo, but I say Puerto Vallarta. It’s incredibly beautiful and safe. I went a few days ago, and will be heading back.
Hopefully this answers your questions.
