      RVingFTCandace Take a look at the posts  telcoman  mentions here. He leads R Vcaravans into Mexico and posts lots of info on the website Caravanas De Mexico. I am planning for the solar eclipse in 2020 in the Yucatan.

    Either totonaka in San Carlo rof teh hotel play de Cortes in Guayomos. Both are good. Based on last season, you may have issue getting space in Totonaka at that time, the other one will be half empty. Both are about $25 US a night. We have used both for o...  more

    We are planning to drive our class A down to San Carlos and stay there for a month or so. We will leave around the end of December or early January from south of Tucson. We would love to travel with some other people if anyone has the plan.

    I have a pet related question. I've traveled to Mexico once a year for the past 3 years. Each year I get a Vet form for my dog...trying to follow the law as I understand it. The form is supposedly required. However, I've never been asked for it. It c...  more

      gypsy ken The first time I went into Mexico with my cats, in 1993, I followed all the rules, by the book, and paid for health certificates for them.  I was never asked for them, so I avoided the expense in subsequent years.  As BMB231 says, in Mexico you ...  more

      Cluculz Lake Duo This is our 6th year crossing by RV with 2 dogs and we always have up-to-date vet records (but not the Mexican Forms) and we have never been asked for any of them entering Mexico. However we do get asked for the vet records by US Customs on our return nor...  more Hide 1 Reply

        gypsy ken May I ask, Cluculz Lake Duo, what border crossing you use?  (On the basis of advice I've received from trusted sources, I'm planning on using the Andalzuas Bridge, McAllen/Mssion to Reynosa.) Thanks.
    • Bruce & Kris
      Cluculz Lake Duo We have crossed at Pharr, Eagle Pass, Presidio (just west of Big Bend), and Nogales, AZ. All have been without incident although Nogales is by far the easiest. Pharr was also easy, wide & efficient but then having to travel thru &  around Reynosa was...  more Hide 1 Reply

        gypsy ken I like Melaque and am sorry that I can't get to it on this trip.  I'm driving in my toad; will only be in Mexico for two weeks, chiefly because I have to put three cats in boarding while I'm away; and will only visit Chapala/Ajijic and Puerto Vallart...  more

    What are your experiences and recommendations in crossing the border, finding decent places to stay a...  more

      gypsy ken The latest, 4th edition of the Church's Travelers Guide to Mexican Camping was published in 2009. Much of the information in it, especially about campgrounds, is obsolete--many listed in it no longer exist--but the book is still very much worth having and...  more

      Doug and Julie We have been down to Baja and the Mainland on motorcycles and trailering many times.  Never had much of a problem.  If you go past the tourist zone in Sonora be sure to get the permit, as well as mainland.
