It's funny the way we take everyday conveniences and necessities for granted, especially when we are so used to something "just being there," for instance, things such as toilet paper. Unfortunately, I learned this little Mexico travel tip too late. I can laugh about it now, but I wasn't really prepared for it.
On my last trip to Mexico, Antonio and I were exploring the wonderful and colorful town of Ajijic
(about 45 minute drive from Guadalajara). We parked in the small local park by Mexico's largest lake (Lake Chapala).
Usually public parks such as these will have public restrooms and so.. I walked right in not realizing they didn't have toilet paper.
Usually there is somebody attending to the restroom and she will sell you a bit of toilet paper for a few centavos, however, she must have stepped away for a second. So there I was (a grown woman).. doing the "ants in the pants dance,"
waiting for the toilet paper.
Lucky for me, I didn't have to wait too much longer after that. But it could have been worse!
You could have small children with you that really, really have to go and well, you want to be as prepared as possible.
So to be on the safe side..
whenever I'm down for a visit in Mexico I make sure to have my roll of toilet paper with me in my bag. It's just more convenient.
Don't be embarrassed, even some of the locals do it too.
I've seen it myself.. after the fact of course.
This is one helpful Mexico travel tip I wish I had known sooner.. you never know when you're going to need it
and if anything, it will come in handy for something.
