Some call it courageous, others call it crazy.
Heading into the remote reaches of Mexico with a toddler for a hotel-free vacation is most people's idea of hell. But The Globe's Simona Chiose discovered it's the best way to travel .
She survived running out of gas and hot water, and flying with a sight-obstructed pilot on a tiny plane -- and would do it all over again.
She knows what apartments to rent (and what to avoid); the tricks of local shopping; the secrets about couple time; and how to switch up your parenting style to make the vacation a happy one for all.
Simona will take your questions on on "off-reservation" travel with children on Thursday, March 4 at 1 p.m. ET. Submit your question now in the comments section of this article or come back to join the discussion during the live hour.
