RE: Zihuatanejo RV space?

Other than the park at the end of Playa Linda in Ixtapa, you might be out of luck. Did you contact the hotel, Real de las Palmas, in front of the other RV park, which no longer has a sign in front of it? Here is the number for the hotel: 755 554 9095. It still exists, we know a couple who has lived there permanently for 5 years, but the sign is gone and it is showing as closed on line. Other than showing up at El Manglar and hoping for the best, we don't have anymore suggestions for you, unfortunately.

RE: Buy RV in USA & drive it down? Or after I arrive in Mexico?

You ask some very good questions. The police shouldn't be an issue no matter what plates you have as long as you don't get stupid. Something to remember is that no matter where the vehicle is plated, all of the paperwork must be absolutely correct, along with your papers. If anything happens and you need to use insurance, the first thing they check is that all of the paperwork is perfect. You must be a resident to register a Mexican vehicle, and be sure to read about the legality of who can drive it. Insurance is important, not expensive. We had to use it once, we were hit, not us hitting someone, and again, first thing was to make sure that everything was perfect paperwork wise. No insurance? If there is an injury, it's straight to jail. Stealth camping around the magic cities? There are always Pemex and many will let you park there. We seriously toured the country for many years, 15 years in a 22 foot 1975 Class C then upgraded for the last 7 (before we moved here permanently) in a 28 foot 2005 Class A. Honestly, no difference as to issues. Facebook Marketplace is the place, at least in Guerrero, to shop for a vehicle. Other members should have a lot of great information to share.

RE: Copper Canyon?

Same for us. Great trip and great treasures. We still have a number of the pieces we purchased there. The ruins were great too.

RE: Baja California to Mazatlan

Thank you all for posting. It's really nice to hear from people who have actually driven the roads recently, and not hearing the typical, "Oh, the roads suck, they always do and always have." Nothing like real reporting.

RE: Baja California to Mazatlan

OK, I have to jump in here. I think it's a bit early to say that Hwy 15 is in bad shape. Yes, rainy season is over and there was damage, as there always is, during the summer. It's just a bit early for someone to say that the road is bad because, hey, has anyone driven it yet this fall/winter??? How about a report on actual condition someone?

RE: TIP when permanente

It can be done, and not be very traceable, but you could lose your vehicle and residency status. Renew your passport after you get your permanent residency. You will get a new passport number. Then, just apply for a 10 year tip. Easy. However, and again, if someone wants you you potentially lose your residency and your vehicle. Congratulations on getting your permanent residency.

RE: TIP when permanente

My gut says there is a very good chance that there will be no issues, but I sure wouldn't take a chance on losing a very valuable RV.

RE: Is Playa del Carmen and Majahual safe

Possibly instead of cash on his person, make sure he has an ATM card and funds available. He should have a great time. Buses go everywhere and are affordable.

RE: Changes to Mexican Immigration Procedures

And you would know, being out and and about all over the country! Thanks for your input.

RE: Changes to Mexican Immigration Procedures

This program is in place at 5 airports, and here at Zih, Zihuatanejo, we aren't part of it. Cancun International Airport (CUN) Cozumel International Airport (CZM) Los Cabos International Airport (SJD) Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR) Mexico City International Airport (MEX)

RE: Earthquake!!!

Pretty interesting, isn't it??? We were sitting having lunch when it hit, and the first thing we said to each other was, "What are the odds?" And it's a big one!!
Talleyho69 09/20/22 08:04pm RVing in Mexico and South America

Yesterday's 7.7 earthquake on the coast of Michoacan between Tecpan and Lazaro Cardenas was really felt here in Zihuatanejo. Fortunately there was no damage here and reports make it appear as though there wasn't much serious damage. No road condition information has been available yet, but there is bound to be damage on the coast road. Bridge approaches and exits are bound to be rough, and there have to be slides along the way. Fortunately, these things are taken care of quickly. It would be great to get a report on the road conditions.

RE: Dying in Mexico

Is OP saying a certified copy of a death certificate or birth certificate issued by a California county will not be honored by Mexico? The only birth certificates issued by the State of California are for adopted children. Otherwise the counties issue these documents. Again, it depends upon what you are trying to do. I don't see why anyone would need a death certificate from the US here. Birth certificates are issued, in most cases, by counties, but only the state does the apostille. Here in Mexico they want things apostilled. For residency purposes, if you do your application in the US, they will take a birth certificate that is not apostilled. If, however, you do it here in Mexico, it must be apostilled. In our cases, the birth certificates that we used to get our passports with 50 years ago were considered to be too old by California and Oregon, so we had to get more current birth certificates from the counties then send them to the state. We are fortunate that we have the time for this. We have found how easy it is to get a US notarization on line and free on line FAX services too.

RE: Dying in Mexico

That is a great thing to hear. Supposedly, and we know how that works in ANY country, things are very official. So glad that things worked out the way they were "supposed" to happen. May they continue.

RE: Dying in Mexico

That was exactly what we had decided while we still lived in the US and traveled down here regularly. Now? Cremation and into the ocean! At least with our apostille marriage certificate, if we don't go together in a firey crash, the other can take care of things.

RE: Dying in Mexico

It just depends. Read the fine print as to where the use may be needed.

Dying in Mexico

Yeah, I know, what a topic, but it needs to be out there. In years past we were always told that in a decent sized caravan to Mexico, there would be at least one death. Tequila, what do you say?? We have recently found out that in order to have a spouses remains released to you in Mexico, you need to have a marriage license/certificate on hand. Not only that, it needs to be an apostille copy. These take a bit of work to get, and are issued through the Secretary of State in the state where you were married, in most cases. We decided that since we have to get apostille birth certificates and marriage certificate to apply for citizenship, it made sense to have a second apostille marriage certificate for when one of us passes. If nothing else, it will make a difficult time a bit less stressful.

RE: Vehicle Insurance for Mexico

Not that we are aware of. Fortunately it's not particularly expensive. Just as a note of caution, we were parked in Mazatlan at the old La Posta RV park helping the guy behind us get all loaded up for his return to Canada after being parked for 5 months. He didn't keep insurance on his rig while parked for the winter, and had it starting the next day. Yup, we really did see his vehicle roll across the road and hit another one. Did quite a bit of damage to both, fiberglass front ends and all, and him with no insurance.

RE: workcamping in Mexico

We thought it sounded like a great chance for many who are/could be interested in heading south into Mexico!

RE: Winter 2022/2023 trip plans changed!

Maybe you can just fly to Florida for the event, and still have some time and money left for a Baja trip. When we relocated to Mexico permanently our families got told that we welcomed them to come stay for up to a week, we have a separate apartment at the house, but that we wouldn't be returning to the US for visits. Some thought it cruel, but it's realistic for us. Five years later, two friends come annually to visit, not a single family member!
