I am from Oregon and traveling with my 9 Yo daughter. First I planned a trip to loreto Baja but they wouldn’t let the plane land so we got flown back to LA. Wanting to be in the flow I decided very spontaneously to go to PV because that’s where the airline could fly us. We’ve never been here. The first thing that happened was I walked away from an ATM MACHINE in PV and the machine ate my card. I am here in sayulita with no cash, no ATM card and 2 credit cards that I cannot get cash from because I never set up a PIN. My husband western union Me money today and I used the last of my pesos to get a taxi to take me to the OXXO in both sayulita and San Pancho and at both were told that they were out of service or could not give me money only transfer to my card (which I lost)
We walked back to town in the heat, tried to hitchhike but no one would pick up a mom and her daughter
Now we are at Rustica because they take credit cards trying to figure out what to do. I can’t take a taxi to mezcales (a town the OXXO worker said may have the ability to give me cash via western union) because I have no pesos only CC.
My friends friend who owns sayulita sol is out of town, we were hoping she could get me cash and I could PayPal her.
I’m going to try to rent a car tomorrow and get to mezcales and try to pick up the cash. After that I would
Most likely keep driving and end up in PV for the duration of our trip because of the ease of being in a city, even though I had planned to go to San Pancho tomorrow.If there are no cars I have no idea how I will get out of here.
Does anyone here have any suggestions of things I may not be thinking of.
I am going to walk to the bank tomorrow and hope that I can get a cash advance on my CC with my ID
