RE: Border

Canada ranks number 15 in the world for percentage of the population vaccinated, the US is number 43.

RE: Border

Can you post a link please? I couldn't find anything.

RE: Border

I spent some time this afternoon trying to find out the reasoning behind the US not opening the borders and couldn't find anything. You have our sympathy. We sure hope that the Canadian road travelers aren't stuck in Canada for another winter.

RE: Looking for tips, suggestions on travel in Mexico?

At the top of the forum are, "stickies." These give you the information you need on getting your personal and vehicle permits on line before you get to Mexico. This is highly recommended. It also gives lots of hints on crossing borders and other things. You are going to have a great trip! We first did that same trip in 1985 in a car and a tent. The baja ferry information is all on line and you can make your reservations there too. Do use this forum for information and questions. I think it's a great resource. Moderator

RE: 6.9 Earthquake felt in Mexico City

Here in Zihuatanejo, it was a very gentle roll, not long. None of the regular noises. It's big, hope all is well with everyone.

RE: Road Report for 15D

There is at least one more hurricane on it's way, looks like it will hit further north than Nora did. Fortunately, it sounds like repairs are already being made!

RE: Where are you going to spend the winter?

Playa Boy is driving from Nogales to Puerto Vallarta towing a trailer. The roads are in bad condition due to hurricane Nora that ran pretty much from Colima into the US last week. The first comment was written before he headed back south two days ago, and just before Nora ran through and destroyed things. The second comment was written today, while he is on the road and experiencing the damage from Nora. It will get a lot worse as he travels further south to Puerto Vallarta. Fortunately it is now the middle of rainy season, and the wettest month. There is still lots of time for the roads to be repaired before the beginning of the "traditional" tourist season for RVers.

Figure it out and get down to your place too!

RE: Where are you going to spend the winter?

We plan to spend the winter right here in gorgeous Zihuatanejo, Mexico. The two RV parks here on Playa la Ropa have a lot of space due to the "regulars" not returning last winter and losing their spaces. We are just entering our rainiest months and we are already at our annual average for rainfall, so the world will be lush and green for longer than normal. We just did a quick road trip from here to Uruapan, and the amount of road work being done was huge.

RE: Looks like another soaker

It's 7:48 am Saturday, and here in Zihuatanejo it's been raining steadily since about 6pm yesterday. So far, 4.65 inches total, and 2.25 since midnight. The rain hasn't been particularly hard, the highest rate was 2.58 inches per hour at 5:40 this morning. We expect it to rain all day. Amazingly, the pool isn't an infinity pool yet! 11am update, we have now had 3.3 inches since midnight and 5.73 inches from Nora so far. Just steady rain. Final total for Nora here was 10.3 inches, bringing us up to 40 inches exactly for the season to date. Looks like it will be a very wet rainy season!!

RE: Border News

Unfortunately, we have to agree with you. That's why we always managed to take at least 4 months off every year and play. Then, we were fortunate to be able to completely retire shortly before 62, stay very active, and hope to continue to keep playing hard for many more years!

RE: Border News

I spent only a very few minutes this afternoon (pet crisis) and found that at ZIH, the Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa airport, the cost of the test to return to the US is 569 pesos. I was unable to find quickly the cost of the Canadian tests, but the rates from springtime were about 3,500 pesos.

And prices may vary.

Hurricane Grace/Marty

Hurricane Grace crossed the Yucatan peninsula yesterday starting as a category one hurricane. Then she entered the Gulf of Mexico and had a second landfall as a category 3 hurricane at Tecolutla in Veracruz state early this morning. As near as we could tell, she remained a hurricane until pretty much into the center of Mexico. This is unusual, and the roads, which in Veracruz in the fall and early winter are often terrible due to the storms, will likely be worse than usual and be so further inland. Time will tell. If you are a weather buff like we are, the next part is unusual. It looks like the remnants of Grace will cross over the country and regroup in the Eastern Pacific ocean and potentially become a hurricane again. If so, it will be named Marty. Because of the weather conditions here in Guerrero, we have RAIN!!! We are on the outskirts of this event, so many places north and east of us are being swamped. We have had 2.1 inches of rain in the last hour, and isn't slowing down, yet. This is a good time to use your favorite weather website to monitor rainfall in areas you are interested in. If you want to see what is happening at our house, go to, and sign up for a free account. We are Casa 4 Vientos, and our information is there. We also strongly recommend the NOAA hurricane website at:

RE: Border News

Yes, we having something like that here in Mexico. What information are you looking for? To come to Mexico, you need nothing. In order to fly back to the US or Canada you have to have a negative COVID test within three days of arrival in that country. Both countries require different tests. Come visit beautiful Mexico!!!!

RE: Border News

The US cannot close their borders to everyone. Isn't allowed.

RE: Border News

Had a friend cross both ways at Lukeville three weeks ago and it was his first time not using Nogales. Says that if he has to go back to the US again it will be through Lukeville. Here in Guerrero, and possibly for the entire country, we are supposed to wear masks all the time, and the police hand out masks to those that don't have one on.

RE: Border News

The US Mexico border is open, officially or not, it's open.

RE: Mexico's Highway Of Death

I agree with you entirely. Our history of traveling in Mexico is just like yours, same time frames too, except that we started in a tent in the early 80's and graduated to an RV in 1990. No motorcycle, sigh. Let's try again to make this forum about RVing in Mexico. Moderator
