This is a forum about RVing in Mexico and South America. Covid 19 and politics have been declared, by the sponsors, as topics that are not to be discussed on this forum or on this site. Please review the Forum Rules. As long as we stick to RVing in Mexico and South America, all is well and your input is welcomed.

RE: Mexican Banks

I read the articles, did more research and learned more. To me, it still boils down to living in a country different than the one you were raised in. Being aware of what could possibly happen and trying to know as much as possible before making important decisions. We moved to Mexico 3 years ago, permanently, and are so glad we did. With the help of people like qtla9111 we have had our questions answered about things like banking, handling money, buying and selling vehicles, and so far have done fine. It's a learning curve. What happened to the people, couple, persons who wrote the Op/Ed piece was horrible. All of it. It would be great if we could have a real discussion about this topic without getting, "over the top," meaning too political, too anti-Mexico, name calling and not being reasonable human beings. I, personally would love to learn more about how to best conduct business here in Mexico and live safely here as we all want to do. Remember, this is a forum about RV travel in Mexico and South America, so we do have to keep the topic in mind. Moderator

RE: Giving up on Mexico?

This article is making the rounds on many message boards with many many comments of many many types. My gut??? It was very unfortunate. However, Mexico is a foreign country to many of us. It is something that you should always keep in mind, and realize it is very very different that the country you came from.

RE: Crocodile awareness in Mexico

Here is a link to the story. According to today’s news the boy is in stable condition and recovering. Unfortunately the cocodrilo now finds herself fenced in with brand new fencing, making it likely she will see humans as a threat instead of neutral cohabitants of this world. Human stupidity was the cause of this incident, not the presence of cocodrilos. The parents are at fault for letting their child play in an estero where all locals should know cocodrilos live. Please, when visiting an area where you aren't familiar with the local wildlife, be super careful. We have traveled extensively in Mexico with two dogs and a cat, have had no issue because we were very aware of what could happen. Yes, I had nightmares about our first weimaraner getting eaten, but have since worked through that with knowledge of the areas we were traveling in. That was years ago, fortunately. We live in Zihuatenjeo. We dog for an hour each morning on the beach, use our SUP's and now swim at least a mile in our bay. Are we aware of the crocs? Absolutely!!! We have been paddling more than once and had people on shore waving and letting us know that one was out and about during daylight hours, which is unusual. Now that we are also swimming, it hasn't come up, but we are very aware. Isn't nature wonderful??? So is knowledge!

RE: Expiring Residente Temporals and Covid

Playaboy is 100% right on. You are trying to game the system. You would be better off and safer just using an FMM when you are in the country. Play by the rules instead of looking for loopholes.

RE: Expiring Residente Temporals and Covid

I think you answered your question with your quote: Permanent Resident visa holders may not have a foreign plated car in Mexico. It almost seems as though you are expending more time and energy trying to find a quasi legal way to do things the way you want to rather than just follow the rules. It might be easier to just do that.

RE: Expiring Residente Temporals and Covid

Here in Guerrero we can get a driver's license and register/buy a car without having residency. INSABI is free for minor things, and we think summers here are absolutely beautiful, possibly better than the winters! Everyone has their own thoughts and opinions as to where it is better to live. So far we have had no reason to get a bank account here.

RE: Expiring Residente Temporals and Covid

As I was just reading, the temporary or permanent residency cards don't require you spend any specific amount of time per year in country. They simply make it so you don't have to leave the country every 180 days and you don't have to get an FMM each time you come or go. For us, we got our permanent residency cards hoping to be able to move here permanently. We did, and are now just 15 months away from being to file for citizenship!!!

RE: What will Canadians fo this fall/winter

Many people from Mexico, both from the US and Canada have crossed the border going north. There is no problem. If you are going to Canada they have their quarantine rules. If you are going to the US, they just welcome you back. The border "closings" are for things like going across for dinner, a dental appointment, that kind of thing, not preventing legal residents from returning.

RE: Expiring Residente Temporals and Covid

Are you sure that isn't 55 days BEFORE the expiry? Hope so for your sake.

RE: Expiring Residente Temporals and Covid

I so agree. I hesitated to say that I have heard that she is not a reliable source. Since you have time, I'll check my sources at immigration here and see if I can find out anything. You should also e-mail a Mexican consulate for confirmation. You'd hate to lose that first year! And the ability to go permanante.

RE: Expiring Residente Temporals and Covid

This may save you!!!! If a person is flying in, are you entered as a tourist on the airlines computer? I don't think so, but it would be worth checking.
Talleyho69 07/12/20 04:06pm RVing in Mexico and South America
With limits, Guerrero opens tomorrow!!!

Waves permitting, we will be paddling tomorrow morning. If nothing else, an ocean swim without having to sneak out!!!!

RE: They are comming to take me away

Things open up here tomorrow. 30% occupancy for hotels and restaurant seating. The beaches will be open, but no furniture. We got our first flight from Los Angeles three Saturdays ago, and the tourists are trickling in. It's nice to see them. We hope the waves are small enough that we can paddle our SUP's. It's been three months, so the first one should be great and painful! At least we have been able to swim daily. As a friend posted on our local forum, it's a small percentage that die from the beer flu and a very high percentage that die from starvation. Cross fingers and think positive.

RE: Zihuatanejo Departure and Arrival???

This time it was cocktails, a little earlier. Looks like the same RV, we couldn't see the license plate, just returned here about 7 pm. Our beaches are supposed to open to limited use on Thursday, so we'll check out the three possible places to park and see what we can find out! YES!!! Our world is scheduled for a soft opening on Thursday morning. This means that, hopefully, we won't have to sneak out for our mile ocean swim at 7am and not paddle our SUP's. We haven't had a paddle since April 1. Swimming? Almost daily. We hope things work out favorably.

RE: Preliminary 7.5 earthquake

We felt nothing here in Zihuatanejo either.

Zihuatanejo Departure and Arrival???

We just came in from having dessert on the terrace. At 8 pm a Winnebago Warrior drove by heading to Hwy 200. We didn't know there were any RV's in our neighborhood!!! Safe travels.

RE: Face shields now available at OXXO

Considering it was 91 degrees here today for 8 hours, I hope he/she drank it!!!
