RE: Zihuatanejo, Guerrero Covid Vaccinations

I got moderna in Canada, my wife got pfizer. They are going for a 4 month gap to get the maximum doses to the most people. In Bucerias where my brother in law lives they are only giving the chinese vaccine.

RE: 10 Tips for ATM safety in Mexico

yeah my only issue has ever been with banco azteca, One in alamos and once in the yucatan. I got the money back in both cases. in both cases the same machine accepted a bank card with no issue. It was weird. the transaction went through, receipt issued, debit showed in account, but machine dispensed nothing.

10 Tips for ATM safety in Mexico

From our RV Caravan orientation guide: 1) Always use an ATM inside a Bank when possible. Try to use ones in fairly busy areas otherwise, avoid street kiosks 2) Always cover your hand when entering pin 3) Consider downloading the “ATM Card Skimmer” app to your cell. It is in the play store. This will detect if there is an illegal Bluetooth device added to the ATM transmitting your information to a nearby receiver. 4) Mexican bank rate fees range from about 20 Pesos up to over 100 depending on bank. 5) Avoid using credit union cards in Banco Azteca machines. If you have to use one, try it out with a $20 withdrawal first. I have had these machines debit my account twice, with no money dispensed, when using a credit union card 6) Check your bank statement online after you withdraw, when you can. USE A VPN 7) Consider a separate ATM card on an account with little funds, and just transfer enough into it, online, prior to using the card each time. 8) If the ATM does not look right, examine it for possible overlay keypads 9) Always have 2 cards on different banks, so you are not stuck if one gets eaten or disabled. 10) Watch THIS VIDEO

RE: No more overnight parking at Desert Diamond Casino?

It looks like it is covid related

No more overnight parking at Desert Diamond Casino?

I heard you can no longer RV overnight at the Desert Diamond off Exit 80 north of Nogales. A friend phoned them and was told this is the case, but she did not know if it was just Covid related. The Nogales Wal Mart stopped it about 3 years ago.

RE: TIP's at Lukeville

Thanks. we had a nightmare 2 years ago with on line applications. They took the money and never sent permits. Happened to 2. It was the year right after an election so that may be the reason, changes of personnel.

TIP's at Lukeville

I think I already know the answer to this but would like some opinions; We are running an airstream caravan into Baja next Jan and across on the ferry. 99% of these people have trucks and trailers and I know both La Paz and mexicali have the weight issue problem. I spoke to one person with a 1/2 ton whose door sticker said 7800 lbs GVWR who was refused at mexicali. So, one plan is to go to organ pipe, then drive "trucks only' across at Lukeville, get permits and then drive over to Potrero. So my question is, are they going to be able to get permits for the trailers without them actually being there? Just the paperwork for them. I do realize the trucks will have to be. The other option is on line, but last time we tried that, 2 rigs never got their paperwork.

RE: Baja Trip In 2022

We are running caravans down Baja (not this year). We advise staying under 36 ft and not towing a toad. Although there have been improvements in roads, that is a pretty big rig, even for the mainland.

RE: The weight issue again

In answer to your original question, I have always crossed at Lukeville/Sonoyta and get my permits at San Emeterio Aduana (20 km east of Sonoyta) en-route to San Carlos. Last trip down (Nov 2019), I was driving a 2009 Silverado 2500HD with a 9200 GVWR. I have never had a problem getting permits. I am always pulling my fifth wheel so I can't speak about any problems concerning getting the trailer permit without it being with you. I do recall that they were using a digital camera to take photo's of the window VIN tag and Door sticker on the tow vehicle and I do recall them photographing the VIN tag on my Trailer. Also note that as of Nov 2019 they did not issue Tourist Visa's at San Emeterio but you had to get it at the border crossing. I have always stopped at Why Az the day before and I would drive down to the border and walk across to pick up my Tourist visa ahead of time. There is virtually no parking on the Mexican side of the border crossing for a single rig, much less a group. Yes I remember that hassle, I thought they were maybe issuing them at the permit place further south by now.

RE: The weight issue again

Moishe & Rich, I know all of that, Its confusing and the SAT regs distinctly say cargo capacity, so does the Banjercito site. IN SPANISH. Unfortunately in their English version its says GVWR. (note misspelling as well of GVWR) Compare the 2 screenshots below. Rich yes GVWR includes all those things and that is the maximum allowed by the manufacturer. GVW is the actual weight at any given time. Cargo capacity is GVWR - Curb weight. https://mexicocaravans.com/permits/banjercito1.jpg height=480 width=800 https://mexicocaravans.com/images/BanjercitoEnglish.jpg height=480 width=640

RE: US to require COVID Testing for International Flyers

Today Trudeau announced that the need for a Covid test before flying back to Canada will apply to flights from all nations. Of course he also stated that these restrictions could change and that Canadians could be left stranded. How kind! I have little sympathy, the government has been telling Canadians to stay home for months. Anyone choosing to vacation during a pandemic get what they deserve, IMO.

RE: US to require COVID Testing for International Flyers

As I understand it, the prevention to crossing borders is not leaving a country, but entering another. They can't stop a Canadians from entering canada, but they can stop them from transiting the US

The weight issue again

I just spoke to a woman who was refused at permit at Mexicali because her GVWR door sticker was 7800 lbs. As we know, it's supposed to be cargo capacity, not GVWR, but some crossings are still doing this. I also had 2 reports of the same thing happening at La Paz. We have an Airstream caravan crossing next Jan in Baja then crossing on the ferry at La Paz. Having a bunch of them refused permits at La Paz would be a disaster. I know this can probably be resolved by doing them on line, but the last time we tried that we had 2 rigs that never got their permits. So my idea is to take them to organ pipe, have them go down get permits and tourist cards south of Sonoyta then cross back into the US and drive to the Tecate crossing. They can probably do that leaving their trailers behind at Organ Pipe. So my question is, has anyone had issues getting permits on 3/4 or 1 ton pickups at km 21 south of Lukeville? I think some of the newer 1/2 tons may be over 7710 GVWR.

RE: US to require COVID Testing for International Flyers

Trudeau is wanting to ban most international flights but the constitution may override his desire to prevent Canadians from returning home. That is true, but they may have to go by bus. If the US will let them across.

RE: US to require COVID Testing for International Flyers

My understanding is that right now being air evacuated to canada is nearly impossible. There are rumours of Cnada banning international flights. it is causing some panic among the numerous snowbirds who chose to ignore the government advice and fly to Mexico anyway

RE: US to require COVID Testing for International Flyers

My curiosity question is in regards to those who have paid for air evacuation services. IF you test positive for Covid, you are not supposed to be allowed on a plane to the US or Canada after certain dates. So, what about your evacuation service that you paid for? Just stirring the pot here. I suspect you can't be evacuated. Canadian govt. bought this in a few weeks ago. The government here has been telling people not to travel, so if you choose to go on vacation during a pandemic, get sick and expect them to let your infected body back in the country, I suspect you will be sucking wind. To be honest anyone who goes on a vacation at this time get what they deserve.Especially with the new more contagious strain on the loose. Sounds brutal, but I am getting sick of all these self entitled people who fell they have a right to risk spreading a disease in someone else's country just because they want a sun tan.
