RE: Mexico Has Chosen It's Covid19 Serums

Moved from RVing in Mexico and South America

RE: Turned back at border

From three friends who live here in Zihuatanejo most of the year and chose to return to Canada for some time during the summer months, it is very strictly enforced. One of them lives on an island that has spotty cell phone coverage, and they had to work it out or else he had to live in a hotel for the 14 days. If you are going to require the quarantine, enforce it!

RE: Turned back at border

I think that is just Canada at least for now.

They can fly down if it's important to them.

Can you provide a link to that information please?

RE: Robbery South of Penasco

That is all true. However, they were out in the middle of nowhere, and it always helps to have at least copies of essential documents and a snapshot of any pet that might be missing.

RE: TIP for financed passenger car

Fortunately, there is a lot of great information on line about how to visit Mexico and South America. Check out the stickies at the top of this forum. Sometimes we forget that Canada and Mexico are foreign countries. Whenever you visit ANY foreign country it's important to check out the VISA requirements at the very least.

RE: TIP for financed passenger car

Actually I have spoken to a number of people with financed or leased vehicles and have heard of no problems getting the letter as long as they prove Mexican Insurance.

RE: Robbery South of Penasco

A reminder: Probably 30 years ago we read all about having an emergency envelope, placed where it would be automatically grabbed by one of us exiting our vehicle. It contained copies of our insurance, passports, visas, dog paperwork, photos of the dogs and cat, some US cash, copy of a current credit card, and other things we thought would make things a bit easier if the worst happened. It was designed for vehicle accidents, fires, medical emergencies and anything else we could think of. Fortunately we never had to use it. Now, we only keep our Mexico drivers licenses in the car for ID, and the insurance policy.

RE: Rocky Point or Puerto Penasco Mexico

All we can do is our best. We have given up riding the combi's and now drive everywhere. We avoid lines that we see on the sidewalks, usually in front of banks. We live 15 minutes from an international airport and the foreign tourists are arriving. We also get a HUGE number of bus people, yesterday there were 21 buses in the main parking area, and all are let off on the beaches. It comes down to, at least here, starvation or doing the best everyone can to stay healthy and encourage/require "safe practices." Is this the right thing to do??? All we can do is our best. Eres mi amigo, y a veces tenemos que estar de acuerdo en no estar de acuerdo.

RE: Quartzsite 2021

This thread has been closed because it quickly turned into postings about the pandemic. Anything having to do with the pandemic is to be posted in Around the Campfire, found on this website.

RE: Quartzsite 2021

We didn't know about Quartzite and stopped there for a night a bit before the main event just as they were starting to set up. Amazing!!! We were on our way to Mexico for the winter and ended up buying lots of rocks that we had to haul around with us for months. So fun, and we missed the main event!!! If we still lived in the states we planned to check it out sometime.

RE: Rocky Point or Puerto Penasco Mexico

The Mexican border reopened September 15. https://khn.org/morning-breakout/mexican-borders-reopen-for-nonessential-travel-from-us/ For more information on specific crossings, see the topic "Driving across the Border during Covid," specifically the posting by Playaboy.

RE: Rocky Point or Puerto Penasco Mexico

Great to see and hear about. It does appear that RVers are arriving in Mexico. Yesterday on the beach a couple from the US snagged us to talk about our dogs. They are in an RV here on Playa la Ropa in Zihuatanejo on their first Mexico trip. They are having a great time. Also this morning while we were out front watering, a class C with Quebec plates drove by toward town, away from our two RV parks. May there be more!!!

RE: Any problems crossing the Laredo border going south lately?

Lou lives in the US, there is no quarantine either there or in Mexico. You will have no issues at all. Just have a safe drive and welcome back! You should consider a short (or long) trip down to Zihuatanejo some time. We spent a lot of time in and around Lo de Marcos back in the early 90's and thought it was the best spot in Mexico. Then we found Zihuatanejo. We now live here full time!

RE: Driving across the border during Covid

Everything I'm hearing is that it's totally normal and you just drive in. At least one of you is a citizen/resident, so that totally makes things wide open.

McAllen Texas to Zihuatanejo

He'll be pulling a trailer from McAllen Texas to Zihuatanejo Mexico. Hoping for a three day drive, the plan is to have all the paperwork done in advance on line, and spending the first night in Matehuala at Las Palmas. So the information requested is suggested routes and a good place to spend the second night. Any help here??? Moderator

RE: Melaque is a mess

Fortunately, it's Mexico! Roads reopen very quickly with at least "passable" detours. Reconstruction is already occurring, and the beaches being picked up and raked daily. The mountains are poured out the excess water and in two days, it's almost dry and back to normal. Absolutely inspiring. We have already had another .5 inches, 1.25 cm this evening.

RE: Melaque is a mess

WOW!! And I thought we got a lot of rain, 11 inches, 27.5 cm in 20 hours. We have a lot of damage, but not as extensive as Melaque has.

RE: What will Canadians fo this fall/winter

For us, it's always been all about the ocean. When not traveling, we lived on a Southern California beach with cold water. Here, we hit the beach with our two weimaraners at 6am because dogs aren't allowed on the beach. We walk the whole beach both ways, the return trip with them being loose playing ball and swimming. Back home about 7, then we grab our SUP's and paddle. Then we leave them on the beach and swim a couple of kilometers. By then it's 9:30 ish and if we don't do anything else all day, it's OK. We are all exercised and exhausted, and so happy from seeing wonderful things in our warm water. Yesterday I swam over two groups, one of 4 and one of 5 of golden cownose rays, each about a meter across. Absolutely beautiful. When we were paddling we saw two large turtles swimming along. Southern Mexico has toasty warm water that is often very clear and has lots of beautiful things to see. We even have seahorses!!
