RE: Border opening?

I guess this is about Canada. I think most of the post on this site is about Canada

RE: Telecommunications Reform (Cell Phone Service/Biometric Data

My online banking with BBVA is tied to my smart phone. In order to access my accounts on my phone which I need to do in my business I needed to have my biometric scan done for the bank. So I can be tough and say I won't, then lose my banking flexibility or comply and have it done. I have been with BBVA Bancomer for over 14 years, they have never messed with me (except for long waits in the bank) before so I don't think they will start now. Anything I can do to stay out of the actual bank is OK with me.

RE: Deleting and Closing A Thread

Why isn't there a concerted effort between the three North American countries? clay and lead don't mix.

RE: Ixtapa Trailer Park

Thanks for this post. As some of you know I am in an RV and tourism related business here in Mexico. My tour company has been shut down since March 17th 2020, that is for private tours in my vans. I have little to no overhead, and am debt free. So we are going to be able to ride it out. When the market comes back... and it will, I will be glad to see it. This year we did have 4 RV caravans come to Puerto Penasco for a combined 54 rigs over a 3 week period. All sanitary protocols were followed by everyone who came here plus all of my vendors on the ground here and it was good to see these folks travelling safely again. We miss our Canadian friends though and hope that restrictions are lifted for season 2022. I already have 6 caravans scheduled for 2022 (close to 100 rigs) so there is a big demand. Hasta la vista, hopefully next year!

RE: Baja Trip In 2022

If you are an adventurer, you will love Baja. We live in mainland Mexico where we can get anything we want commercially. In Baja once you get south of Ensenada that access changes, probably in a good way. As stated above gas stations can be far apart...especially if you are using a guidebook to direct where you get gas. Quick story on our first trip down, my wife was "nagivating" the trip and she had me pass a station north of Catavina, we were on our way to Guerrero Negro. The guide said there was a station in Catavina...guess what? The station was abandoned. We went a little further and realized we were not going to find any gas. We turned around to Catavina where we saw guys selling gas out of 50 gallon barrels. We got in line and we literally bought the last 8 gallons at about 8.00 us per gallon. We were glad to pay it as it got us to our next destination GN. It is raw, it is exciting, it is a great trip! We like to stop in all the small places along the way and discover the people who live there and find out about them. We will be back in Baja this winter from our home in Sonora when all this C19 stuff is over or waning. Have a fun trip!

RE: Reef RV in Rocky Point status

Its in good shape and very quiet, the cruise jetty is abandoned so no construction noise. Wrecked at the Reef restaurant and Mare Blu are both open and pretty busy, no hassles at the border as of today. Masks are required everywhere so be sure to have them.

RE: Big RV arrived in Zihuatanejo today

In Penasco it's a diferent story, Playa de Oro park is 30% occupied, Playa Bonita is about 50-60% and the Reef RV Park is about 20%, Concha del Mar which is on the water but has no hookups has a good occupancy right now and there are rigs coming in everyday. I expect 4 large caravans starting in February and continung through March and into April.

RE: Two Medical Crises their Resolution and Costs

We have been in Mexico for 13 years and I have been in the emergency room once and my then teenage daughter was in emergency overnight then last year I fell off s ladder and had to be rushed to a clinic for stitches in my head plus the therapy for my injured back from the fall...In all of this I still have not spent more than 500 usd.

RE: Safety in Puerto Penasco

Mexicoruss, Hoping I can get some info and maybe advise from you. My mate and I are planning to come to Rocky point in January. We have been there several times, but not since covid started. She is on oxygen therapy and we will have a portable machine with us. She is also on warfarin for her blood and needs to have her blood checked for coagulation and I am having a hell of a time finding a doctor or lab that speaks English and can do this. I have been advised by a resident there to not come. Perhaps you can offer some help. Thank you very much. Bill it doesn't sound like good idea to me to travel right now with the medical needs you described..I don't have connections in the medical community but am happy to check it out for you.

RE: Mexico Closes Border Until Nov. 21, 2020

As posted in a previous post -the border issue is to keep non-USA citizens from coming into the USA. It has been the same since March. If you are a USA citizen it does not affect you. PERIOD. Tourism has been designated as essential travel in Sonora. However the protocols for anything in public places is very strict here compared to other places up North.

RE: Rocky Point or Puerto Penasco Mexico

I thought I would just float this out here in internet land. Rocky Point or Puerto Penasco is open for RV tourism. Or Not. A local Arizona physician was charged $300 fine for not wearing a mask in his car with his family a day or two ago. thats a little hard to believe. 300 us or 6000 pesos? I would have heard about that as is so far out of the norms it would have been discussed in our local boards

RE: Robbery South of Penasco

Apparently the USA is advising against any travel in that whole area including the coastal road I live here and I advise against the Caborca area not Caborca itself, its a lovely place, but the outlying area. We have known it is sketchy for a few years. I have to go through sometimes but I would never go at sunset or later. It is no mans land out there. All agricultural and hardly any traffic. Not a great idea to "troll" through that area with 70k worth of goods.

RE: Rocky Point or Puerto Penasco Mexico

I thought I would just float this out here in internet land. Rocky Point or Puerto Penasco is open for RV tourism. Russ, what are the current driving/mask restrictions? Does the second person in the vehicle still have to be in the back seat with a mask on? What about beach access, is it still restricted entry and exit points? Other mask limitations? Can I load up 6 people in the same vehicle now? Restaurant restrictions? As of August 1st the mask mandate in all public spaces is enforced, once inside a restaurant/bar and seated you can remove the mask, get up to go pee or walk around put it back on. Beaches are open at 7 am and close at 7 pm other than that they are unrestricted no mask needed in your beach shade area but when dealing with a vendor...mask up. Naomi and I drive together all the time again and we have our mask around our neck but not on in the car. As far as I know there is no family restrictions on how many passengers are in the car, I have a 15 passenger van with dark windows and I can't use it yet in my tour business (nor would I want to right now) At Sams club 1 person per card is allowed. At super markets we have no problem shopping together but kids under 12 are still not allowed. Every store no matter what it is is mask mandatory or no entry. I have an outdoor market coming up on the 17th and I had to attend a class on crowd safety and yes it is mask mandatory even though its outside. These guys aren't kidding around when it comes to public safety I like it. We will get through this time and look back on it and either sigh or smile or both.

RE: Quartzsite 2021

The big tent event is happening again in Quartzsite January 16-24. Anybody on this forum planning a trip to the show? If so and why it's in the Mexico forum, Naomi and I are making plans to be there with information on Mexico RV travel..just saying if it all works out please stop by and say HI! Its like 5K RVers dry camping in the desert who drive 2 miles into a an area next to I-10 where you will have a bunch of big and small tents who are selling everything ever made for an RV. Its a place that people either love or hate it. I did it once for a few days and that was all I ever needed. One year they counted more than 500,000 Rv's in the desert served by a town of only about 2000, agreed it's not for everybody but is very fun to experience!

RE: Quartzsite 2021

Ok. Call me stupid. What is the big tent event all about. Never been there at that time of year. I refuse to call you stupid, however good question. For over 30 years Kenny King has put on a huge big tent event in Quartzsite. It is RV lifestyle specific. During the 9 days of the show we have seen more than 50,000 people walk through the doors to get info on almost everything related to Rving. My wife and I used it to launch our RV travel business 25 plus years ago and it introduced us into the amazing RV business. I still have friends that I met there from all those years ago. It is fun especially if you have never done it before here's a link Quartzsite RV
