RE: Diesel shortages??

We wouldn't worry about using our credit card in that kind of situation. But, obviously keep the printed receipt. There could have been many reasons for only wanting a credit card, including not wanting cash on the premises at night, the cash being counted for the day, (that happens here in Zihuatanejo once or twice a day) or some other reason that would escape reasoning for the minds of non Mexicans! We have always used our credit cards for gas in Mexico and have not had any issues. It is our payment of choice in gas stations and grocery stores.

RV's in Zihuatanejo

Finally cruised over to El Manglar, the most popular of the two RV parks here in Zihuatanejo. As of today, there were 7 vehicles in the park, ranging from a truck camper to a large Class A to a very large 5th wheel trailer. It has a capacity of 15 rigs. What motivated us to check? We had a Class C drive past our home yesterday from Quebec. The day before we were in town and passed a Class C from British Columbia. Obviously there are visitors from points north to Zihuatanejo, and we are not close to the US border. SO NICE TO SEE!!!! Then, Playaboy arrived in town and is staying at one of the just retired parks, Costa Bella. It has been fun spending time with him and we hope to spend more!

RE: Road from PV to Barra de Navidad

OK, this is sad, and says something about how few people are traveling in Mexico. Up until 4 winters ago, we could vouch for this road. Even without knowing how the road is today, it has to be WAY better than driving up to Guad and then down. If no one chimes in to give road current road conditions, my advice is to leave early, plan on it taking "a while" and be prepared to be very pleasantly surprised as to the quality of the road. It sure seems as though road quality here in Mexico has improved dramatically. Please post what you experience!

RE: Covid tests needed when returning to the US?

I'm sure you are correct, but supposedly the rules change January 22. I have visions of the border agents using a hand held skin reading thermometer on the forehead of everyone in every vehicle that enters the US, then if the numbers aren't perfect, sending them to the CDC tent where they are given a handout suggesting they self isolate at home and how to do it. Sounds terribly efficient.

RE: Covid tests needed when returning to the US?

US Citizens do not have to do anything to return to the US. Non US Citizens have to provide proof of Covid vaccination, but not a booster to enter. This is as of January 22, 2022 https://www.dhs.gov/news/2021/10/29/frequently-asked-questions-guidance-travelers-enter-us

RE: Bahia Kino?

Don't you just love finding a new place, exploring it and finding what you need, and don't need but do? Love Mexico!

RE: Truck Weight Limits for TIP update.

It sounds like they might possibly be figuring it out! Let's hope that this will be consistent at all of the border crossings.

RE: Kino Travelog

Boy, after reading that, I want to visit again and again, and we have been there several times!!!! Live there? What a dream!!! You, like us, live in paradise. Are we the luckiest????

RE: Bahia Kino?

We have had the same experiences with our two weimaraners. They would be seen through the windshield, and very occasionally it appeared that someone would dare someone to have the door opened. Two big dogs, one terrified person.

RE: Pandemic in Mexico V USA

We live in Zihuatanejo, Guerrero. You can't enter any business without a mask, and mask wearing is expected and done. Things have just changed so two people from one family can enter a store together, and no one under age 12 is allowed, still. There is also a foot bath at the entry of most buildings and many have temperature checking devices there too. The two supermarkets in town have people who spray sanitizer on the cart handles as you enter, and ALL businesses have hand sanitizer at the entrances. The issue here is that we are tourist town. The people from the US and Canada refuse to wear a mask in public, "I'm vaccinated. I don't have to." They are unhappy about having to mask up in a building, but have found that if they don't, they can't enter.

RE: Telcel deals

Gee. We put 100 pesos on our phone every 60 days, an inevitably have some roll over to the next time. Here in Mexico, and to the US, everyone uses Whatsapp, which is free as long as you have wifi. It also allows you to send photos, which TelCel does not. TelCel is great. Sure, you have to listen to commercials, but it's worth it for the great rates.

Fortunately for you, one of our very active members lives in Bahia Kino. He is currently there, is a great guy, and will be able to provide you with everything you want to know and more. Moisheh? You are on!

RE: What food can I bring ...

Hot dogs in our opinion aren't great, but the dogs love them! Milk, any type you want is readily available here, and in the ultra pasteurized form, including almond. Great stuff! Cold cereal (I can't eat that stuff) all of your brands are here. Lunch meat, many types and brands are readily available, don't know for sure, we aren't close to the US border. Cuts of meat? Learn them!!! We grill on our Weber gas BBQ probably 4 nights a week, and are always exploring what is here. Just finished some great filet mignon, we buy them whole and used to take them back to the US with us, they are so good. Cottage cheese is now available, and from several brands including the low fat versions. (That's what we get). It's not the same as the US version, larger curd, but after a year or so without it, we keep it in the refrigerator all the time and love it. Cheese?? OMG! Except for cheddar, we prefer the Mexican cheeses, and fortunately we are close enough to Oaxaca to get the fresh version of their cheese, not the commercial ones. We always have Oaxaca, Mancheco, Chihuahua and ground cheese (panela) in the fridge along with imported parmesan and local produced bleu cheese and brie. We LOVE our cheese! Yes, we are foodies and at least Playaboy can attest to the fact that we work out hard enough that we aren't fatties to go with it. Sure could be though!! Food is wonderful stuff. In a foreign country, better, because you can learn, eat, taste and explore it. Just remember the rules as to what is legal to import!!!

RE: What food can I bring ...

The weenies are gross, but our dogs eat one each morning before their workout. They love the cheapest ones. I'm not a fan anyway.... Deli meats??? Shaky, but if you are here long enough, some are OK to fill the need. A smoked Oaxaca cheese, Sabori extra fina pavo (with tomato and pickles) makes an amazing sandwich! Extra sharp cheddar is unavailable here in Zihuatanejo, but when someone actively contacts us and asks what we want, we ask for a small, about 8 ounce bar of extra sharp, not frozen if possible. It lasts us about a month in small slices that we savor!!! Other than that, Taco Bell, Burger King and Panda Express, we want for nothing.

RE: What food can I bring ...

Chicken wings are readily available anywhere. We have always felt that traveling is an adventure, and the food part can often be the best. We have lived full time in Mexico now for over 4 years, and still find things that we have no clue about. Be it in the mercado, walking the streets, or even in the chain supermarkets, there are always new, unknown items. When it is from other than the supermarket, it's fun to learn the name, what to do with it, where it comes from, then go home and read even more. LOVE traveling and new experiences, especially in Mexico!!

RE: What food can I bring ...

They always managed to board us there and go through us pretty thoroughly, looking for and taking the above mentioned items. Mexican grocery stores are fun!!!! Smoked turkeys are available any time non smoked turkeys are, and we have been able to purchase them in pieces, just like non smoked. Realize that since COVID, we haven't seen turkeys here at all. Maybe this year!

RE: What food can I bring ...

https://rockypoint360.com/what-food-can-i-bring-across-the-border-into-mexico/ Although this is not an "official" list by the Mexican government, it's good. As much as we always preferred to cross the border in both directions at Lukeville/Sonoyta, they are real sticklers about what you can take into Mexico. They searched us a number of times going in. Fortunately almost anything can be purchased in Mexico so we found the list to be easy to comply with. Smoked turkeys are easy to get too.
