With Mesa, Quartzsite, Lake Havasu, Parker, Erehenberg, and Sierra Vista with access to the most beautiful state parks like Kartchner, Patagonia, Chiricawa, and the Santa Catalina Highway to name a few, why go to Mexico? Wine and spirits are in Wilcox. We live in Northern AZ and go South for January and February to these places. We don't pay extra insurance, keep warm and see lots of geography and meet lots of great folks. And I don't need a passport or records for my pets and cannot get into trouble over weapons including knives. We'll visit AZ and spend our money here.

A number of years ago, I was hit from behind while stopped for a red light in Nogales. Guess who's fault it was? Never, again. I was treated like a criminal and at first opportunity headed for the border, leaving my rental car behind.

Suzie, I have taken my dogs down several times. In Arizona you need to go to your veterinarian and explain that you would like to take your dogs to Mexico. They will do an exam and give you a "Health Certificate to Export dogs from the United States to Mexico". This certificate will have rabies information and will be printed in English and Spanish. It's very officious looking. The cost for this varies with vet offices. It cost me $123.75 for my labrador. I make several copies and keep them in my motor home along with the rabies certificate. With that I've had no problems what so ever going in to Mexico or coming back.

We entered Mexico at Lukeville on Monday and the people with us that have a dog had to show papers on the Mexico side.

We got the red light, got inspected by the border agent. Came in and looked around. Told the wife that next time don't bring the Poinsettia.

Next was the military. He came in and opened every cabinet, looked at everything. Asked a couple of questions and his partner wanted to see some ID. No problems, they were very courteous and professional

Just looked at the HUGE list of prohibited items entering Mexico. It seems that almost everything in our refrigerator or pantry could be confiscated. Also the wife has a collection of orchids and African violets that would go with us in our RV (4 month Baja Sur trip). Is this for real?

The stuff in your fridge is probably ok. But plants can be a problem. Most countries including the USA do not allow plants. I have never had anything confiscated in 35 years of Mexican travels.

I have not been to Mexico in my RV but I have ridden my motorcycle to Puerto Penasco for a motorcycle rally and I rode to Mazatlan, took the ferry to LaPaz and rode home up the Baja Peninsula. Both trips were amazing, no problems at all. We are planning a trip to Cabo next year in our RV
