No problem. You’re welcome.
Chablekal – it’s up in the rural areas and outside of the perimeter. It’s near Conkal. Not much to do at all in that small town. I was in that area two weeks ago and i’d personally live there if i were by myself without kids. But with teens, I would not. You’ll need transportation out there (your own car), otherwise, you’ll need to use Uber/DiDi to go any and everywhere; and ubers/didis are NOT in abundance out there. You’ll waste a lot of time waiting for rides to come; and they almost always cancel. So that would be an issue. Not much to do.
THe other city would be a much better option. Much more of the ‘old’ in that area versus the new and modern. But it’s a good area to be. My kids would like it out there but that’s because they’re used to being in those types of areas. It’s different than the newer/modern stuff… They’ll be able to find stuff to get into, malls would be within driving distance via Uber/DiDi. This is a good area to stay as well. It also puts you closer to Centro. I’d choose this one over Chablekal with teens hands-down. If u find a spot in that area (Itzimná), take it. It don’t look like it on the map, but you can get to the ‘North’ or any other areas fairly quickly. And they can get to the malls/shopping quickly and cheaply. Great area.
