    This trip is on my bucket list! Before I commit myself I have a few questions. 1. Is this a safe place for a solo female traveler? Anyone with personal experience? 2. How easy is it to get from the airport to the B and B?Is there an option to be picked up/ dropped off at the airport?Im not interested in navigating a foreign locale on my own by bus or even rental car. I'm more than willing to pay for this service! 3. How long should I plan to stay in order to fit everything in without stress or getting bored? What is the average stay? 4. What time of year should I plan on arriving? 5. I was excited to hear that hiking was an option over horseback( not a fan of horses). Can this be accomodated even in peak season?Should I plan on off season to be able to request all or most of the above? 6. Understand that I'm not a snob! Just an older woman who was warned about Mexico but still wants to see butterflies and enjoy time with like-minded folks.
