McAllen Texas to Zihuatanejo

He'll be pulling a trailer from McAllen Texas to Zihuatanejo Mexico. Hoping for a three day drive, the plan is to have all the paperwork done in advance on line, and spending the first night in Matehuala at Las Palmas. So the information requested is suggested routes and a good place to spend the second night. Any help here??? Moderator

RE: Melaque is a mess

Fortunately, it's Mexico! Roads reopen very quickly with at least "passable" detours. Reconstruction is already occurring, and the beaches being picked up and raked daily. The mountains are poured out the excess water and in two days, it's almost dry and back to normal. Absolutely inspiring. We have already had another .5 inches, 1.25 cm this evening.

RE: Melaque is a mess

WOW!! And I thought we got a lot of rain, 11 inches, 27.5 cm in 20 hours. We have a lot of damage, but not as extensive as Melaque has.

RE: What will Canadians fo this fall/winter

For us, it's always been all about the ocean. When not traveling, we lived on a Southern California beach with cold water. Here, we hit the beach with our two weimaraners at 6am because dogs aren't allowed on the beach. We walk the whole beach both ways, the return trip with them being loose playing ball and swimming. Back home about 7, then we grab our SUP's and paddle. Then we leave them on the beach and swim a couple of kilometers. By then it's 9:30 ish and if we don't do anything else all day, it's OK. We are all exercised and exhausted, and so happy from seeing wonderful things in our warm water. Yesterday I swam over two groups, one of 4 and one of 5 of golden cownose rays, each about a meter across. Absolutely beautiful. When we were paddling we saw two large turtles swimming along. Southern Mexico has toasty warm water that is often very clear and has lots of beautiful things to see. We even have seahorses!!

RE: What will Canadians fo this fall/winter

We spent a number of months every year traveling in Mexico, starting in 1983 in a tent with just two weeks. In 2009 friends who lived in Ajijic suggested that we meet up here then head to Palenque. We finally made Palenque, not wanting to leave Playa la Ropa. Then, every winter we spent a long as we could here, finally 6 months at a time, and realized that we really really didn't want to leave. In 2017 we bought a house and in 2018 moved down permanently and haven't been back to the US. So, be careful if you come to check this area out, you may stay forever! BYW, the ocean temp this morning was 93.

RE: What will Canadians fo this fall/winter

Here in Zihuatanejo, the morning humidity is almost always 96%. During rainy season, mid day is usually 82%, during the dry season mid day is usually 75%. The weather station in our back yard can be accessed through Weather Underground, but more easily by going to weatherlink.com. Register, and look for Casa 4 Vientos. That will hook you into us, it's all free.

RE: Mexican Banks

I read the articles, did more research and learned more. To me, it still boils down to living in a country different than the one you were raised in. Being aware of what could possibly happen and trying to know as much as possible before making important decisions. We moved to Mexico 3 years ago, permanently, and are so glad we did. With the help of people like qtla9111 we have had our questions answered about things like banking, handling money, buying and selling vehicles, and so far have done fine. It's a learning curve. What happened to the people, couple, persons who wrote the Op/Ed piece was horrible. All of it. It would be great if we could have a real discussion about this topic without getting, "over the top," meaning too political, too anti-Mexico, name calling and not being reasonable human beings. I, personally would love to learn more about how to best conduct business here in Mexico and live safely here as we all want to do. Remember, this is a forum about RV travel in Mexico and South America, so we do have to keep the topic in mind. Moderator

RE: Giving up on Mexico?

This article is making the rounds on many message boards with many many comments of many many types. My gut??? It was very unfortunate. However, Mexico is a foreign country to many of us. It is something that you should always keep in mind, and realize it is very very different that the country you came from.

RE: Crocodile awareness in Mexico

Here is a link to the story. https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/6-year-old-in-serious-condition-after-crocodile-attack-in-ixtapa/ According to today’s news the boy is in stable condition and recovering. Unfortunately the cocodrilo now finds herself fenced in with brand new fencing, making it likely she will see humans as a threat instead of neutral cohabitants of this world. Human stupidity was the cause of this incident, not the presence of cocodrilos. The parents are at fault for letting their child play in an estero where all locals should know cocodrilos live. Please, when visiting an area where you aren't familiar with the local wildlife, be super careful. We have traveled extensively in Mexico with two dogs and a cat, have had no issue because we were very aware of what could happen. Yes, I had nightmares about our first weimaraner getting eaten, but have since worked through that with knowledge of the areas we were traveling in. That was years ago, fortunately. We live in Zihuatenjeo. We dog for an hour each morning on the beach, use our SUP's and now swim at least a mile in our bay. Are we aware of the crocs? Absolutely!!! We have been paddling more than once and had people on shore waving and letting us know that one was out and about during daylight hours, which is unusual. Now that we are also swimming, it hasn't come up, but we are very aware. Isn't nature wonderful??? So is knowledge!

RE: Expiring Residente Temporals and Covid

Playaboy is 100% right on. You are trying to game the system. You would be better off and safer just using an FMM when you are in the country. Play by the rules instead of looking for loopholes.

RE: Expiring Residente Temporals and Covid

I think you answered your question with your quote: Permanent Resident visa holders may not have a foreign plated car in Mexico. It almost seems as though you are expending more time and energy trying to find a quasi legal way to do things the way you want to rather than just follow the rules. It might be easier to just do that.

RE: Expiring Residente Temporals and Covid

Here in Guerrero we can get a driver's license and register/buy a car without having residency. INSABI is free for minor things, and we think summers here are absolutely beautiful, possibly better than the winters! Everyone has their own thoughts and opinions as to where it is better to live. So far we have had no reason to get a bank account here.

RE: Expiring Residente Temporals and Covid

As I was just reading, the temporary or permanent residency cards don't require you spend any specific amount of time per year in country. They simply make it so you don't have to leave the country every 180 days and you don't have to get an FMM each time you come or go. For us, we got our permanent residency cards hoping to be able to move here permanently. We did, and are now just 15 months away from being to file for citizenship!!!

RE: What will Canadians fo this fall/winter

Many people from Mexico, both from the US and Canada have crossed the border going north. There is no problem. If you are going to Canada they have their quarantine rules. If you are going to the US, they just welcome you back. The border "closings" are for things like going across for dinner, a dental appointment, that kind of thing, not preventing legal residents from returning.

RE: Expiring Residente Temporals and Covid

Are you sure that isn't 55 days BEFORE the expiry? Hope so for your sake.

RE: Expiring Residente Temporals and Covid

I so agree. I hesitated to say that I have heard that she is not a reliable source. Since you have time, I'll check my sources at immigration here and see if I can find out anything. You should also e-mail a Mexican consulate for confirmation. You'd hate to lose that first year! And the ability to go permanante.

RE: Expiring Residente Temporals and Covid

This may save you!!!! If a person is flying in, are you entered as a tourist on the airlines computer? I don't think so, but it would be worth checking.
