RE: TIP when permanente

Looks like they/you could be fine. Being the person that I am, I wouldn't be willing to take a chance. At least not in a vehicle that I wouldn't be willing to lose, and lose any chance of residency or citizenship. However, we did, after we had permanent residency, make one last trip down, 5 years ago, to drop off stuff and then exit the country with our US plated vehicle. My personal opinion is that is just depends upon your willingness to take the risk.

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

Facebook marketplace is the place used vehicles are typically found in Mexico, at least in Southern Mexico. I think Playaboy found his last truck there, and that is where our car is from.

RE: Zihuatanejo RV space?

We just had dinner at El Manglar Restaurant, a favorite of ours, and drove through the RV park. There are only three rigs there as of tonight, and at least 10 full hook up spaces available. I did not inquire as to availability for the winter.

RE: Sonoran Coastal Highway Puerto Peñasco to Bahia Kino

Don't know personally, but we have a number of members who drive Mexican roads regularly. Yes, your request for "current" information is very valid, and that is what I hope you get!

RE: TIP ONLINE

In years past, vehicles with a TIP were issued with a special ‘holographic’ windscreen sticker that provided visual evidence of the vehicle’s legal status in Mexico. Since January 1, 2020, Banjercito no longer issues holographic stickers for placement in the windshield and the permits are validated by email instead, although we recommend that you print out the documentation and keep it on-hand at all times, in case you cannot access your email if you are stopped and questioned about your vehicle’s presence in Mexico. You may be asked to show proof the vehicle’s legal presence in the country at any military checkpoint and/or by federal or traffic police. If your vehicle still has a holographic sticker that is still valid, it’s important that you leave it in place and do not remove it. You should never remove the sticker yourself: the official at the Banjercito office at the border should do this for you when you cancel/surrender your permit. You obviously haven't been here for a few years!!!

RE: Zihuatanejo RV space?

We must have just missed you! We moved out and moved to our house here on December 16, 2017. While you were here our RV was parked in front of our house right next door to LOOT.

RE: Temporary Visitor's Pass - Guadalajara

What do US smog standards have to do with smog testing in Mexico? Here in Guerrero we change license plates every 3 years in January. It is interesting to see how many vehicles don't yet have their new plates.

RE: Zihuatanejo RV space?

IF you can pull it off, try to be here for the fireworks show on New Year's eve. It is world class, quite spectacular. Part of what we love about it is that it is sent off from usually 5 locations, 3 here on Playa la Ropa, one on La Madera and one on Playa Principal. They set them up by mid day, put a string of yellow caution tape around them, then leave. Great chance to see the stuff close up in the light. Remember at El Manglar to keep a flashlight handy for night time, the crocs like to walk around. If you have pets, especially small ones, be careful. Supposedly there have not been any incidents, but when we walk our dogs in the morning in the dark we are very aware and do see them coming and going through the surf. Paddled by a 6 footer last week mid morning. As you come down the hill onto Playa la Ropa, just past the dolphin statue, look to the left. You'll see a row of potted palms in front of a house. Honk and wave!!!! That's us.

That's great news!!!! Let us know when you'll arrive and we'll meet up!

RE: Temporary Visitor's Pass - Guadalajara

Very interesting. Keep us posted if you learn more. Do like the idea that they are going to start verifying vehicle emissions there.

RE: Zihuatanejo RV space?

It may not be what you want, but if your heart is set on Zihuatanejo for the winter (and we SO get it) you may have to take another approach and be flexible. Instead of trying to find a solid three month chunk of time, just take what you can get. Show up, take what is available. If you have to leave for a while, check at Real de las Palmas. Try Playa Linda, hopefully get another month or whatever, have to leave for a bit and return for more. Acapulco isn't far away, an easy drive. We always enjoyed it too! I think the only way you are going to get your foot in the door at either RV park here in Zihuatanejo is to be flexible, show up and get established so that if this is your paradise, you can get your 3 months in the future.

RE: Zihuatanejo RV space?

It's called Costa Bella and no longer takes RV's. They put a pool in where the RV's parked. We were the last ones in there, they let us stay until we moved into our house.

RE: Zihuatanejo RV space?

I just talked to a friend who has spent the winter at El Manglar for many many years. (except Covid years) Right now there is lots of space. Two rigs left this morning leaving 4 there. He said that there hasn't been any long term availability in many years, and that Memo does keep very good track of who is coming and going, so if he said there isn't space available for a 3 months stay, it is undoubtedly correct. Memo does not live in Zihuatanejo.

RE: Zihuatanejo RV space?

Other than the park at the end of Playa Linda in Ixtapa, you might be out of luck. Did you contact the hotel, Real de las Palmas, in front of the other RV park, which no longer has a sign in front of it? Here is the number for the hotel: 755 554 9095. It still exists, we know a couple who has lived there permanently for 5 years, but the sign is gone and it is showing as closed on line. Other than showing up at El Manglar and hoping for the best, we don't have anymore suggestions for you, unfortunately.

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

You ask some very good questions. The police shouldn't be an issue no matter what plates you have as long as you don't get stupid. Something to remember is that no matter where the vehicle is plated, all of the paperwork must be absolutely correct, along with your papers. If anything happens and you need to use insurance, the first thing they check is that all of the paperwork is perfect. You must be a resident to register a Mexican vehicle, and be sure to read about the legality of who can drive it. Insurance is important, not expensive. We had to use it once, we were hit, not us hitting someone, and again, first thing was to make sure that everything was perfect paperwork wise. No insurance? If there is an injury, it's straight to jail. Stealth camping around the magic cities? There are always Pemex and many will let you park there. We seriously toured the country for many years, 15 years in a 22 foot 1975 Class C then upgraded for the last 7 (before we moved here permanently) in a 28 foot 2005 Class A. Honestly, no difference as to issues. Facebook Marketplace is the place, at least in Guerrero, to shop for a vehicle. Other members should have a lot of great information to share.

RE: Copper Canyon?

Same for us. Great trip and great treasures. We still have a number of the pieces we purchased there. The ruins were great too.

RE: Baja California to Mazatlan

Thank you all for posting. It's really nice to hear from people who have actually driven the roads recently, and not hearing the typical, "Oh, the roads suck, they always do and always have." Nothing like real reporting.

RE: Baja California to Mazatlan

OK, I have to jump in here. I think it's a bit early to say that Hwy 15 is in bad shape. Yes, rainy season is over and there was damage, as there always is, during the summer. It's just a bit early for someone to say that the road is bad because, hey, has anyone driven it yet this fall/winter??? How about a report on actual condition someone?

RE: TIP when permanente

It can be done, and not be very traceable, but you could lose your vehicle and residency status. Renew your passport after you get your permanent residency. You will get a new passport number. Then, just apply for a 10 year tip. Easy. However, and again, if someone wants you you potentially lose your residency and your vehicle. Congratulations on getting your permanent residency.

RE: TIP when permanente

My gut says there is a very good chance that there will be no issues, but I sure wouldn't take a chance on losing a very valuable RV.
