Yesterday there was a meeting in San Carlos with the Secretary of Tourism ( Fed), the Governor and Sonarans involved in Tourism. Fausto (RvMex) was there and I am sure he will post what he heard. Here is a link to the article in today's El Imparcial. I finally was able to convert their online edition to a PDF ( just click on PDF, dummy!). Unfortunately I could only get the whole page. I read it quickly but it appers that Mexico is concerned with their image and are planning some changes to improve that image. The article also noted that USA tourists have dropped but Canadians have increased from 5% to 15%. No mention of RV tourism but I bet Fausto asked what they were doing to make border crossings easier.

Interesting article. Thanks for posting.

So little of the tourism comes from RVing, It will be interesting to see how serious they get about improving border crossing procedures for the RV crowd.

John: The border crossing issues affect much more than just RV'rs. The Paisanos that return at Christamas have far worse problems. They are forced to pay mordida and are often robbed. In any of the border states in Mexico family return at all times of the year. Then there are tourists from Canada and the USA that drive cars not RV's. For border states this type of tourism is a big deal. Mexican Federal politicos do not understand this. Mexico is no different than Canada and the USA. In Canada politicians think that Canada ends somewhere West of TO. In the USA they think that nothing happens outside the beltway. In Mexico it is all in DF.

I forgot vehicles need permits too. Good point.

Its amazing that over a fifth of the population lives in the DF. Amazing. We hope to see the big tamale next year.
