RE: Bandito Watch 2015

We also had an bandito free 4 months in La Penita as well as during our drive to and from Laredo. The only guns we saw was at Army and Federal Police check points.

RE: You know the season is over when

The end of the season is when you start repairing the damage caused by topes and other road conditions

RE: Overnighting in Saltillo

I agree with Canadian Rainbirds, there's no need to stop in Saltillo if you leave Matehuela in the morning. You can get to Columbia Bridge in the afternoon. Thats what we'll be doing when we leave La Penita March 1st.

RE: Will this chip away at RV travel

This might be our last year bringing our rv to Mexico. We found a small casita to rent for next year for about the same price we're currently paying at an rv park. Saving on insurance, tolls and diesel fuel, we feel we can save more than a thousand dollars by leaving our rv at home and just drive down with our car.

RE: Crossing the border soon (Laredo)

Rob.. we're crossing at Columbia Bridge on Sunday morning Nov 9th. and heading down highway 57. What day/time are you crossing? (Laredo or Columbia) We're headed to La Penita and like the ease of crossing at Columbia.

RE: New Version of Garmin Maps

I think what I'll do on my trip from Laredo to La Penita is put my 2013 SD card for Mexico Street Maps in my old Garmin and my 2015 version of Street Maps in my new Garmin and see if there's any difference when they're sitting side by side on the dash.

RE: New Version of Garmin Maps

Brian.. Yes it does cover all of Mexico, not just Mexico City. I'm not sure if the new version of Mexico City Navigator maps are included in your Garmin Life Time updates but I kind of doubt it. If it was included, there'd be no reason for Garmin to have a separate Mexico Street Maps. I guess you could send a note to Garmin's customer service and ask the question. My previous version (2013) didn't show the new highway 80 from San Luis Potosi to Guadalajara plus some new road construction between Nuevo Laredo and Monterrey.

New Version of Garmin Maps

Just wanted to let people know.. Garmin has released the 2015 version of Mexico City Navigator Maps. We'll be using it when we head south in November. ..Graydon

RE: Equiping for Mexico travel?

For an average of 20 pesos for a 5 gallon bottled water, it doesn't make sense to bother with the expense of filters, water purification and related systems. We use local tap water for the bathroom and a 5 gallon bottled water lasts us about a week. About 30 dollars per winter season.

RE: What would stop you from RVing Mexico?

When the motorhome is beyond repair

RE: Medical Insurance for RVer while in Mexico

Depending on severity, we would either get medical treatment locally and submit our bills to our U.S. insurance when we returned home or.. we're also members of MASA (Medical Air Services Association) which would get us stabilized then fly us back home and would also drive our motorhome home including our dog.

RE: Traveling with caravan or not

I agree with Stan.. we too took the lapenitarvpark caravan our first time to Mexico, back in 2005. Learned enough to try the next year by our selves and have been going down to Mexico each year ever since. The only disadvantage for you is that the lapenitarvpark caravan crosses the border at Nogalas which is a little far from Quebec.

RE: How long to get vehicle deposit back?

When we crossed at Columbia in March it only took a few days to get our deposit back.
