With all of the problems in Mexico, I would not venture across the border until the Mexican authorities get the drug cartels under control. Today there were more US citizens killed.

Obviously, the Mexico problem is not getting the press in your part of the country. There are many places safe to go, but you never know when or where the cartel influence is going to pop up. It no longer is strictly a situation of the cartels fighting and killing other cartels. They have found other sources of funding their activities as it has become riskier to cross the border. Now there are kidnappings, extortions, etc. of non-cartel mexicans and americans if you happen to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

It is simply not how it used to be and is getting worse by the month. I love Mexico and its citizens, but I would not cross the border on a bet and have not for several years now, and we live only 150 miles away. I would think if you are driving a nice RV rig you might be subject to a highway hijack just because they know you have the means.

I'm actually researching RVing from the past, not current or future, and not planning on taking the RV down there, but wanted to get some history on where people had gone, when it was safe.

Maybe, someday in the future, that whole area will become a wonderful place to visit - at least that is what I hope for. Maybe it will be in my children's future, not mine.

We know several people who drive annually to Playa and Paamul. They cross the border early and get as far south as possible that day. General consensus is to take the cuota around D.F.

Dollars are harder to spend this year.
