Chris is right. Although Border cities can be bad once you are past that point things are usually fine. Right now I would not travel past Guaymas!!!! But we would sure like to get on a plane and go back to Oaxaca and Chiapis Guaymas has more murders than Nogales! Rotten cops that get replaced all the time.

I have to say that flying in Mexico has become very economical. We recently flew from Monterrey to Tijuana for less than 2000 pesos r/t (3-hour flight). Discount airlines are not bad at all and we enjoyed our flight. What's the difference between Aeromexico and VivaAerobus? No open bar. Big deal. If you fly in the morning you surely won't be drinking and a very nice coffee is only 35 pesos.

Also, the hotel chain, City Express, has come up with many different levels of quality and service; City Express Junior, Plus and Suites. Not bad at all for the price with breakfast included (not continental) and all of their plastics and paper products are biodegradable.

If you're in Mexico or will be, now is the time to book before the holidays.

We have used City Express in HMO when we have medical appointments. Great spot. Nice clean rooms and excellent breakfast. You can find discounted rooms on many of the online booking sites.

Such a sad occurrance. I hope that the person/persons are caught and we find out what happended. As RV'ers it's unsettling to see this.

Folks, plastered all over the US national news tonight is the face of the fellow driving the silver pickup owned by the murdered couple boondocking in the US on Padre Island, Texas. One of the cameras got his photo either as he (and his female companion) crossed the border into Mexico or possibly at a toll booth. Yes, let's hope the Mexican Police can arrest them without an innocent person getting hurt. Keep your eyes wide open on the lookout for these people while traveling down into Mexico.

If they are willing to murder two people for their rv and truck, and drive it over the border, you would think they would be far more likely to commit the same crime in Mexico where they don't have to worry about crossing a border. I personally don't see the appeal of going to Mexico. A group of Mormons were murdered this week as well in Mexico. To each their own. Not worth it to me.

Here is a working link to that story:

The suspect's name is Adam Williams, and he is from Utah.

A member of my facebook group spotted them. With the help of Teo at Roca Azul RV park, Jalisco State Police have arrested them
