See this thread http://www.irv2.com/forums/f37/start...co-148260.html

If you use the search feature you will find other links to traveling in Mexico. Most seem opposed to it but then they are the ones who haven't tried it. The link above is from a guy currently in Mexico.

Spend several nights on the beach at San Carlos,

couple of nights in pemex stations which were convenient but not very scenic,


one night where the new road ends 30km north of Choix


and tonight we are in a pine forest with fantastic mountain views (no sunset this time though) as far away east from Mazatlan as we could get in a short afternoon.

We also stayed in a van park at Alamos to experience their music festival and two nights in a motel front yard at El Fuerte for no particular reason.

So far van parks are running a distant second and I hope we can keep it that way.

No bullet holes in the RV yet and no coke (the type in a can) taken by the army either.

I camp there every winter. No problems. Maybe use a caravan to get your feet wet if you are nervous.

Have a look at this blog - these folks have RV'd in Mexico for many years and have published books on the subject plus they give campground reviews on their blog:

Rolling Homes Press

Mexico is very safe. We've been here for the past six months and have been loving it.

It's much much safer here than in my hometown of Boston, that's for sure!

Mike & Terri are good personal friends of mine. You are correct they are the experts. I gave the Mexico seminars for them at the Vancouver RV show last year while they were in Australia.

here is where i stay in Mexico. for the last 2 years we have taken out 5 year old granddaughter & put her in pre-school down there.

Hi there,
Where the heck is that? I could get used to that place.
Thanks,
Fellow Canadian

Its Laguna del Tule in Melaque, 4.5 hours south of Puerto Vallarta, about 30 min north of Manzanillo. very popular park you have to reserve year in advance, but they are adding another 20 -30 sites. Will take soem time for the trees at them to grow. The lagoon side is the best.
