RVing To Mexico

Sorry to say that you will not get an answer to you queery in this forum. Nowhere in your question did I see where you asked for the Boo birds to come out but they do. Mostly the only contribution to any post from them is negative. For some reason they think putting their opinion when it was not asked for is a substitute for an answer. The only intelligent feed back you will get is by going to RVNET.com, click on traveling in Mexico and South America forum.
I drive south 2-3 times ayear and enjoy it. To prove my point, just watch the idiotic responses I get.

US statistics for 2010 show 40 deaths per day and 14,748 murders that year, almost 3 times what you say happens in Mexico. Ether your stats are wrong or its safer in Mexico.

Isn't it wonderful that so many astute rv'ers who have never been to Mexico know so much about it (0).
If you are looking for travel companions the Walmart in Nogales is a place where a lot of rv'ers spend the night before crossing into Mexico. Cross early in the morning and the longest time you will have to spend is at K-21 where you get your paperwork. After that its a cakewalk. Highway 15 to Hermosillo is divided 4 lane w/ plenty of gas stations along the way(Cheaper than in the US). Hermosillo has a lot of construction going on.. the road to Kino is fairly new and a good wide 2 lane(about 60 miles).
We stay at Islandia RV park in old Kino and have friends who are there now. www.rv.net.com has all the info you will need in the Mexico forum.

We love Mexico and its people and have traveled there by air extensively over the past 30 years, particularly to the west coast. I would not take our RV there for a number of reasons, but that is just a personal choice.

However, the risk of violence has increased over the past several years and we have not traveled there since 2009 due to specific drug related killings, kidnappings, in areas along the west coast where we usually go.

As pointed out by others, it depends on where you go although there are increasingly fewer relatively safe places. The crooks rule in many places now and more often the crooks wear uniforms.

I found a website you might want to check concerning drug related violence in specific places.

Good luck in your travels. We hope to see you in Mexico again some day, but I am afraid it won't be soon.

The OP asked for people who may be interested in traveling with him, so kindly confine replies to that subject. I suspect he has already had enough people tell him that the trip is unwise.
