"A friend and I are preparing for a trip to Mexico and I purchased this DVD thinking it would provide video footage and appealing ( educational and quirky?) insight into Mexico. The film footage was from the 3rd Century - edited in without attempting to change the dated color or create some semblance of context. Ian Wright spent most of his time lying on the side of the road waiting for "fun" - as if, we too were going to relish his hitch hike to hell. I would love to say that there was an element of camp - or anything worthy of passing this DVD on to fellow travelers, but it was poorly written, filmed, edited, and way too much money for such a lifeless production! Next time I will definitely pass on Globe Trekker DVD's as a source of inspiration for travel."
Nice mix of tourism and culture

"Although some reviews indicate that this DVD shows the extreme side of a trip to Mexico (including old busses, questionable hotels, etc.), these videos have a great mix of tourist attractions and culture. If you want to understand more about the country than just nice hotels and premium beaches, this is a great DVD"
