We're still here in Mexico and loving it.

Got a FB post from Mike & Terri Church, the folks that sell the books on RVing in Mexico, and it sounds like the RV park in San Miguel de Allende was full of European RVers while they were there last week. How cool is that??!!

The Americans in bigrigs and large fivers were out at the other RV park simply because they wouldn't fit in the one closer in.

Thank you for this thread! My wife and I have always flown to MX to the big all inclusive resorts, then agaist all pleas from hotel staff and knowing travelers we would venture out on our own! We would do it in a local "death trap" called a taxi, and it was said the driver will take us to a place were we will be beaten and held for ransom. But in truth we found small towns and villages in Mexico to be some of the most wonderful places we've ever been! Always wanted to do it by RV but have been afraid because of the stories we hear or read about. It's good to have real "normal" people tell us their actual stories first hand.

Did you drink the water?

Suprisingly, yes we did... kindo of. We have a "Berkley Light" water filtration unit - a gravity fed filter that I built a rack for and lived on the floor next to the steps out. You can dump pond scum in it and drink the clear results - we avoided that! We filled at numerous campgrounds and neither of us ever got bit by Montezuma's...

Lots of RVer's just buy the large carboys - probably cheaper in the short run.

Most of the water I drank tasted of hops...
