RE: Best route

Thanks guys, I do have the paperwork showing the registration has been paid, but no actual license plates. As I said, we bought the car new in January, I would sure hope they would arrive by mid July when we leave Zihua for San Diego, but it sounds like it should be okay even if they don't. I don't have a Mexican drivers license yet, I've been planning on getting one but just have been too tempted to stay at the pool/beach. I will get on that this week. Talley Ho, a drink would be great, we are also in La Ropa, at the top of the hill in Cerro del Vigia. Our treat in exchange for picking your brain.

RE: Best route

Talley Ho, you are a lifesaver. Thank you so much for taking the time to make such a detailed post! You even answered questions I had but didn't ask for the sake of not driving everyone crazy. One of which was about insurance. I also have Qualitas, and was going to see if I would be covered in the US, but figured it was a huge longshot. I will double check to make sure my policy is the same as yours before we go. We bought a new car here in January and still don't have the plates, I can't believe how long it is taking. Hopefully they will arrive before mid July when we plan to take this trip. If not, we do have the paperwork showing the registration (or whatever they call it here) has been paid. Sure would be nice to have the plates thou and not have to worry. Regarding the tolls, I've been thru one in Cabo and it was manned (unlike most in the US) so I assume paper pesos are okay, or do I need to stock up on coin? Lastly, about the stamping in and out that you mention. Are you referring to passports or the FMM? It sounds like passports but I didn't realize there was an in or out.

Best route

Hi everyone, nice site you have with lots of information. I don't have an RV, but hope someone can give advice on the best way to get from Zihuatanejo, Guerrero, Mexico to the San Diego area. We are a little nervous never having driven in Mexico over a period of days, but I guess you are all old hands doing so. First, let me state some facts, we are two people and will be traveling with two small dogs. We are US citizens with Mexican residency. The trip would be in the about 6-8 weeks in duration, then we would return to Zihuatanejo. Mapping the route to Sonoyta (is that the best route?) it looks like about 28 hours, so that would require 2 overnights. Could someone suggest the best towns to stop in, probably something decent sized where a hotel would allow the pets. Everything I have read says keep to the toll roads, don't drive at night, etc., please feel free to offer up any other tips. As far as a resident crossing the border to the US, I think I need to fill out the FMM as is required while flying, but I have read that the officials never seem to check. How would that work on the way back to Mexico if they ask for my FMM to re-enter? Does the US require any paperwork to enter regarding the dogs? On the way back into Mexico, I see an inspection from SENASICA may or may not be required. As long as I have vaccination and other vet records is that all that is needed? When flying them down the airlines required a lot more (health cert from vet at $260 each within 5 days of flight). Any other information that is pertinent that I have neglected to ask would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
