Miscellaneous: When it comes to getting your clothes taken care of while on vacation, it's best if you have an idea of the different options available. If you're in a hotel, it really doesn't matter as they, in most cases, can take care of your laundry without problems. But if you're in an apartment, then you'll have to hit the street.

There are basically two different options; Dry Cleaning (Tintorias) and Laundries (Lavadero Autoservicios). I made the mistake of taking some jeans and t-shirts to the Tintoria and that was a huge mistake. Not only do they charge about 10X more than a laundry, but you'll clothes will be totally streched out.

After making the mistake of using a Tintoria for my drawers, I found a Lavadero that was excellent: Lave-Rap. They have locations all over town, and the one I used was at Castex 3380 near Salguero.
