RE: Actual observations

When I was driving long haul I used to think Atlanta had the worst traffic of any city. But many Mexican cities are just as bad. In Hermosillo many workers go home for lunch. They drive like madmen. Get home and stuff something into their stomachs. Now it is time to get into your car and fight the traffic. It is nuts. They drive on the sidewalk Go through red lights. It was much better when not that many people had cars. Hermosillo lacks parking for the number of vehicles on the road. Drivers double park There is no cure for this madness.

RE: Actual observations

I am really enjoying Wm. Elliot's posts. We are still thinking of returning to Southern Mexico. We have lots of great memories of our trips. But now we would be looking through 80-year-old eyes. I have not read anything positive about Mexico in a long time. We would have to buy a second motorhome and I would not be very happy if we got halfway south and turned around Mixed feelings.

RE: Semana Santa

The week after Semana Santo is Junior week in Kino Usually a bunch of rich teen ages raising hell. Think of Daytona beach. Lots of underage drunk kids. But not this year. There were more police than kids. No loud music or 4×4,s racing on the street. Semana Sabta visitors was down by 40%.

RE: Semana Santa

There are a lot of reasons for the lack of RV'rs. The Mexican Government has never encouraged rv'ing. They want the planes to land bsu the tourists to some hotel where they have a Mexico night(??) and maybe 5 days later send them back to Saskatchewan. Today's Rv'rs are not like the regulars on this forum. They expect USA style campgrounds, better highways and more. There is always the fear of violence. Nothing we can say or do will change their thinking. We are planning on returning to southern Mexico in December. Right now I am looking for a smaller MH for our travels. I really miss the Churches. It is hard to get up to date CG information. I googled and anything I found was useless. The Overlanders site is really not very good. Mexico Mike is decades behind There is not much current information on RV.NET. At one time every year there were posts about new and closed CG's, highway information and more. I tried to find a CG in Oaxaca and San Cristobal. There is one close to Oaxaca city but I see nothing in Chiapas that can take even a 30 ft. MH. 2 of your favorite spots. We do not bring a toad and that does help in getting through tight city streets. We overnight in Pemex's with no worries but I am not comfortable in leaving our unit anywhere that is not a CG or gated lot.

RE: Semana Santa

We were watching the CNN show about eating in Mexico. Great show. When she went to Oaxaca my heart was racing! We started to talk about all the good times we had in Oaxaca and Chiapas. I am researching smaller MH's. Maybe a Class C or larger B. Our Dynasty is just too big for Mexico ! I really would like to find a Classic unit. Maybe a Superior. Or an Argosy. Nothing bigger than 28 ft. Our old Clark Cortez would have been perfect.

RE: Semana Santa

This is the wrong time to buy a vehicle. Prices are slowly dropping due to lack of sales. Some mfrs. are starting the old rebate program. Funny how things can change so quickly

RE: free streaming video

Don. Make sure none of those sites are an IPTV. Canada is now tracking users and will be charging the providers.

RE: Actual observations

You should see the roof of our house. We have the old Hughesnet internet dish . Not used. A Direct Alaska dish and an old Shaw dish. A true satellite farm. hnak you Telmex for finally getting Fiber to our house. We have come a long way since dialup or driving to HMO to use an Internet cafe.!!

RE: Actual observations

Our Sirius worked all the way South to Chiapas. Maybe you need a different antenna. Although we see some RV's on the Highway from Nogales to Hermosillo many are Mexicans. Sometimes an older motorhome but mostly trailers. I even see some for sale on Facebook marketplace.

Semana Santa

This forum is almost ready to be pronounced dead. Where are all the regular posters: Chris, Tequila and more??? I will try to start a discussion: Describe what happens in your area for Easter Week. Kino has transformed from a fishing village with American and Canadian tourists. The town has been gifted to Mexicans. Since Covid construction of homes, hotels and rental units are being built everywhere. One can hardly see the beach as the homes are glued one to the other. Prices are out of sight. 99% of this development is by Mexicans for Mexicans. The Puente for Benito Juarez had 7000 visitors They are expecting 10,000 vehicles for the Easter weekend. Here are some of the changes for what used to be Sleepy Hollow: 5 garbage trucks and 100,s of contendors are coming from Hermosillo along with more workers to handle the tons of garbage. Instead of driving the 25km to the dump an intermediate temporary dump will be just outside Kino. 100's of police are coming from HMO. They have a highly technical Drone unit. A dedicated large van that also monitors some of the security cameras. There will be a "Green patrol". These are small vehicles that will issue tickets for environmental problems. The Red Cross will have a large crew. Extra Fire Trucks and Firefighters are also coming from HMO. The main street becomes one way on the weekend. We will be hunkered down in our home and using ear plugs at night. The following weekend is Junior Week. The high school kids come here to be wild. Fortunately, the police started to crack down on the kids a few years so most go elsewhere. Fun!

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

RE: Zihuatanejo RV space?

mnmex brings up an interesting fact. In most Mexican RV parks there is a comradery that you rarely see NOB. I think it is because we are in a different country. People will gather around a communal fire (where allowed). They visit surrounding areas in groups. Usually a happy hour. Often a contest to see who had the most problems on a bad road. Or battling traffic in Acapulco. Problems with an RV. No problem. Someone will share his expertise. Staying in a 500 space RV park in Yuma or Mesa does not compare. Almost boring unless you like woodwork or Pickle ball.

RE: Sonoran Coastal Highway Puerto Peñasco to Bahia Kino

That road is never in great condition. With climate change there is a lot of downpours. Heavy rains! Mexican asphalt magically dissolves in water! I have not been on the road lately, but the semis are still taking that route. In a 4 wheeler you will be fine. I should also warn you of severe cartel activity in Caborca. AMLO has sent troops to try and solve this problem. I realize you do not go to Caborca but it is close by. It is a great ride. We took our Bluebird on that route about 12 yers ago. The newer coastal road has the most amazing views of the sea. Enjoy.

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

I found a great Class B on mercado Libre. It is a 1971 Balboa. Built on a Dodge do a google to see what they look like. I tried to get hom to send me fotos ,but so far nothing. It comes with Mexican papers.

RE: Temporary Visitor's Pass - Guadalajara

I wonder what the parameters are for the test? Even new Mexican vehicles do not always meet USA standards.
