RE: Nuevo Progreso 2016

Glad to hear the numbers are up again. I think a lot of people there depend on us for their next meal. We are always treated so well there. Heading over again next week.

RE: Safety in the RGV

Calling a bar populated mostly with retired Midwestern farmers and school teachers a "Biker bar" is a little bit of a stretch. It is a fun place though. It is a biker bar when the Winter Texans are not here, They probably fear for their safety when we are here and stay away. Attempt at humor ;)

RE: Safety in the RGV

IMO safer here than many,many places in the USA. And we rarely stay in the compound. Last night it was a biker bar under an international bridge to Mexico. Beer, live music, bonfire and complimentry BBQ thanks to Crazy Joes. Living in fear is not living.

RE: Canadian dollar

Do not turn this into a political debate! Why not? politics is a fact of life and does effect our traveling/camping. Any civil debate should be allowed and those who can't be civil should be band. If it continues to be political it will be closed or deleted. Please review the forum rules.

RE: I'm getting tired of El Nino.

I guess we have been lucky, it has been the best winter in years in south Texas. Not much rain or wind and 3 days over 80 degrees this week ahead of us. Have only worn my long pants a few days so far this Winter.

RE: Depressed snowbird housing market - Yuma

Not Sure if this is a "Yuma only" issue. There is a resort next to us here in southern California with double wide mobile homes on rented lots right on the golf course, they can be had for $20,000 and up and there are a few for sale at those prices. Changing demographics, and perhaps the C$! Unfortunately it is a trend in South Texas RGV too, maybe not quite as bad as Yuma but lots of places for sale and at prices the same or less than 10 years ago. 10 years ago you needed advance reservations at most parks now you can just drive into most parks and have your choice of many sites. Ownership parks are doing a little better being nearly full and prices not increasing but not really dropping much. The local university study says 40,000 less Winter Texans here than 10 years ago. It is a rare day and cause for celebration when a new resident under 65 shows up.

RE: Pulled over and harassed in texas

Don't want to come to Texas, Don't! We are 2 hours from the border and have never had a problem with the law, criminals, or illegals! We love the Texas Coast. It is a wonderful place to live with wonderful folks (local and winter texans), and a great place to fish, kayak, crab, go to the beach, great seafood, and the prices will not break the bank! Safe Travels! And we winter in Texas 2 miles from Mexico and have never had a problem. This is our 12th season.

RE: Dentures made in Progreso, Mexico?

---------------------------------------------------------------------- You may have heard stories but have you had personal experience? 10,000's of happy customers out there too. I have had several dental nightmares in the USA but none yet outside of the USA after multiple visits for many years.

RE: Dentures made in Progreso, Mexico?

Cummins, they are not much different than ones in the states. There are good ones and bad ones. That is why a personal reference is a good idea. I also checked out the dentist even after I had a reference. For what it is worth, the dentist I use in Progresso has more modern equipment than my former stateside dentist. His workspace is spotless. I haven't had dentures, but I have had extractions, root canals, and bridges and have had no problems. For those without dental insurance, this is a viable option. Agree Same here, have been going to the dentist in Mexico for many years.

RE: Safety in the RGV

In my eyes after 12 seasons in the Rio Grande Valley here is what I found. Friendly locals and Winter Texans. Businesses that welcome us and even host welcome back and thank you parties. Numerous flea markets and produce & fruit markets. Music, music and more music, country, rock n roll, bluegrass and Mexican. Shows from Branson, Nashville and Las Vegas and more. Many celebrations and festivals. Surf fishing, bay fishing, pier fishing and deep sea fishing. World Birding Centers, National Butterfly Center, State Parks, nature centers and wildlife sanctuary's. Mexican Culture, food and music. Very good medical care and hospitals. Museums and local history displays. Lowest cost of living in the country. Plenty of room in the RV parks and retirement communities. Good weather most of the time, we have not had a killing frost in 4 or 5 years. Birds, butterfly's flowers, every kind of citrus fruit and tropical plants. Trips to Mexico for food, drinks, and shopping. MORE, MORE & MORE. Negatives I see: Poverty and unkept property in some areas, long waits for medical appointments, some petty thefts, smuggling of drugs and people in area. some cool damp and windy days. Do I like it here, yes, the positives far outweigh the negatives in my book. Disclaimer: I do not and have never worked for the chamber of commerce or tourist office.

RE: Safety in the RGV

This is our 12th season in the RGV. Crime against Winter Texans is nearly non existent. In checking crime stats for various cities Most Florida cities have a higher violent crime rate than the RGV. Yes, A quick google search confirmed this actually! Key word here is "violent crime rate." Let's not sugar coat things for newcomers, there is crime in the Valley. To say otherwise is simply deceptive to those that take the time and spend the money to tour the area for a winter stay. Can you drive thru a not so good park at night and feel safe, mostly. Can you park the same car, leave the windows down, and walk away with an item in the back or a GPS on the dash, wellllll...... Yes we have petty theft if you leave items of value accessible they may disappear. funny thing the same thing happens in our small northern Minnesota town. For some reason it has became a regular problem there.
