Semana Santa

This forum is almost ready to be pronounced dead. Where are all the regular posters: Chris, Tequila and more??? I will try to start a discussion: Describe what happens in your area for Easter Week. Kino has transformed from a fishing village with American and Canadian tourists. The town has been gifted to Mexicans. Since Covid construction of homes, hotels and rental units are being built everywhere. One can hardly see the beach as the homes are glued one to the other. Prices are out of sight. 99% of this development is by Mexicans for Mexicans. The Puente for Benito Juarez had 7000 visitors They are expecting 10,000 vehicles for the Easter weekend. Here are some of the changes for what used to be Sleepy Hollow: 5 garbage trucks and 100,s of contendors are coming from Hermosillo along with more workers to handle the tons of garbage. Instead of driving the 25km to the dump an intermediate temporary dump will be just outside Kino. 100's of police are coming from HMO. They have a highly technical Drone unit. A dedicated large van that also monitors some of the security cameras. There will be a "Green patrol". These are small vehicles that will issue tickets for environmental problems. The Red Cross will have a large crew. Extra Fire Trucks and Firefighters are also coming from HMO. The main street becomes one way on the weekend. We will be hunkered down in our home and using ear plugs at night. The following weekend is Junior Week. The high school kids come here to be wild. Fortunately, the police started to crack down on the kids a few years so most go elsewhere. Fun!

RE: Buy RV in USA & drive it down? Or after I arrive in Mexico?

Riley, I would never use FB to find a unit in the US or Canada but the op was looking in Mexico.

RE: Zihuatanejo RV space?

mnmex brings up an interesting fact. In most Mexican RV parks there is a comradery that you rarely see NOB. I think it is because we are in a different country. People will gather around a communal fire (where allowed). They visit surrounding areas in groups. Usually a happy hour. Often a contest to see who had the most problems on a bad road. Or battling traffic in Acapulco. Problems with an RV. No problem. Someone will share his expertise. Staying in a 500 space RV park in Yuma or Mesa does not compare. Almost boring unless you like woodwork or Pickle ball.

RE: Sonoran Coastal Highway Puerto PeƱasco to Bahia Kino

That road is never in great condition. With climate change there is a lot of downpours. Heavy rains! Mexican asphalt magically dissolves in water! I have not been on the road lately, but the semis are still taking that route. In a 4 wheeler you will be fine. I should also warn you of severe cartel activity in Caborca. AMLO has sent troops to try and solve this problem. I realize you do not go to Caborca but it is close by. It is a great ride. We took our Bluebird on that route about 12 yers ago. The newer coastal road has the most amazing views of the sea. Enjoy.

I found a great Class B on mercado Libre. It is a 1971 Balboa. Built on a Dodge do a google to see what they look like. I tried to get hom to send me fotos ,but so far nothing. It comes with Mexican papers.

RE: Temporary Visitor's Pass - Guadalajara

I wonder what the parameters are for the test? Even new Mexican vehicles do not always meet USA standards.

RE: Buy RV in USA & drive it down? Or after I arrive in Mexico?

Might be hard to find a good used MH. But if you would consider a Sprinter type vehicle there may be some Van converters.

RE: Copper Canyon?

That area is infamous for cartel problems. Normally not a problem for tourists. You will need Mexican Insurance. Not a free zone so car and Motorhome permits are required. These days boondocking is not recommended. Personally, I would not travel to that area. Not the same a s driving down Highway 15. Here is the US travel advisory: Nuevo Casas Grandes Area (including Nuevo Casas Grandes, Casas Grandes, Mata Ortiz, Colonia Juarez, Colonia LeBaron, and Paquime): U.S. government employees may only travel to the Nuevo Casas Grandes area during daylight hours through the United States, entering Mexico at the Palomas U.S. Port of Entry on New Mexico Route 11 before connecting to Mexico Federal Highway 2, and subsequently Federal Highway 10, to Nuevo Casas Grandes. Employees are permitted to stay overnight in the cities of Nuevo Casas Grandes and Casas Grandes only. Keep in mind that often these advisories can be overprotective.

RE: RV Storage in Mexico City

If your roof is a "rubber" roof you will not easily find an experienced tech. You also may have trouble finding the material.

RE: Baja California to Mazatlan

In Sonora all of the roads are in bad shape. 15 to HMO is mostly OK. The problem is all the rain. With heat the asphalt cracks. Water enters the cracks and lo and behold becomes a pothole. Because there is little or very poor maintenance that pothole grows. The mine road had potholes that were about 3 ft. by 3 ft.. HMO has streets that are not passable. Again, all the rain is the problem. 15 is mostly toll road. There is no excuse for improper maintenance. One should also consider that many states do not have Government weigh scales. Trucks are loaded according to the amount of space without considering weight.

Thanks Silversand

RE: Google Maps Toll Prices

But this is an RV forum and car prices do not mean much. Dually trucks are considered 3 axles. A MH with a tag is considered 4 axles So a tag mh towing a regular truck may pay as 2 separate vehicles or they combine all the axles. I paid 200 pesos at the Nogales toll booth going south!

RE: Starlink

Thanks rocmoc
moisheh 09/06/22 01:28pm RVing in Mexico and South America

To quote Pink Floyd: Is there anybody out there?? This forum has become dead!! I have been following what is happening with Starlink. I guess Musk was not getting inquiries from nations where income levels are low. So he reduced the prices. For Mexico here is no freight. About half the monthly cost compared to Canada. Equipment is also cheap. I know that some of the overlanders are using the service in Mexico. I imagine many of the permanent RV dwellers are using the service. Has anyone here tried it? Very fast. If you are an RV,r the prices are even lower. I am hoping they come up with an antenna that can be easily dis assembled or one that can be mounted permanently.

RE: BYO camper to South America - Pros and Cons?

Will you be shipping the truck and camper as a unit? If not I would be worried it could be damaged.

RE: RV's in Zihuatanejo

The post above has me wondering if many of the long time RV travelers have also decided to pass on Mexico. We have this discussion often Sometimes I feel we should give it a try. My wife is a definite no I think what is preventing me from going further south is the complete lack of any police or military forces to safeguard the public. I could expand but for now will remain silent.

RE: Dentist in Mexico

You are in California. Many snowbirds go to Algadones,Mexico . Just over the border from Yuma You can park on the US side and walk across. We have never visited those dentists but thousands have done so and are pleased. Many of the dentists do exceptional work and have ultra modern facilities. Do some googling.

Nogales Northbound

We crossed at Mariposa this morning. When Northbound we always head to Nogales Centro and then take Colosio to the bus crossing. There used to be a problem with beams that stuck out over the roadway. Just the right height to damage an RV. They finally cut the beams. 20 minutes to cross. 15 had trucks backed up for a mile. Glad we took the bus route.
