Been to Mexico a couple of times, need passports, RV insurance for Mexico, and you can spend a lot of time getting though the check stations.

I agree with AquaMan..... common sense goes a long way and it goes for every country one visits. I personally feel just as safe in MX as any other country we have visited.

In 2013 we drove down with the truck to the tip of Baja, MX. Wonderful trip, friendly people and good food. We stayed in hotels, motels, and rented a condo. We even rented a trailer on the beach, just wonderful.

In October this year we will head down again, this time with our 5th wheel trailer. We will spend 3-4 months.

Safe travels.

If it wasn't so dam far for us and travel health insurance providers weren't so picky I would do it in a heart beat, but alas I can't this year!

The site team is currently reviewing this thread, as it has some posts that are kinda borderline. We are going to temporarily close it while it's reviewed. We will reopen it shortly.

EDIT: We did a small cleanup here. Reminder to please keep this thread on topic. If you don't have experience with the subject matter at hand, then it would be better to find a topic where you do. Also, leave guns, religion, and politics out of this (as per our guidelines), unless they particularly pertain to the question/subject matter and RV'ing.

Now back to your regularly scheduled program

I don't know, but it is only 250 miles in and out of Mexico so you would not need to buy fuel there.

I spent a weekend camping right on the San Felipe beach once, and it was very nice and entertaining, and excellent for a mid-winter getaway.

The big difference is, we usually recognize those areas here in the states and can avoid them but have no idea what those similar areas are in Mexico. IMO, it is just not worth the gamble.
