Traveling to Mexico?

Hello All

Anyone traveling to Southern Mexico this fall? We will be going across Columbia or Eagles Pass late September looking for other RVer's to caravan.

Don’t want to scare you or anything but my neighbor and 3 buddies went down there with a Dually Ford and a trailer with four Harleys and had to walk back. No kidding. The federales decided they liked his stuff and kept it when he tried to come back across Eagle Pass.

Last place I would be wanting to travel too.

https://travel.state.gov/content/tra...-advisory.html

Country Summary: Violent crime – such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery – is widespread and common in Mexico. The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in many areas of Mexico, as travel by U.S. government employees to certain areas is prohibited or restricted. In many states, local emergency services are limited outside the state capital or major cities.

Restrictions on U.S. government travel: U.S. government employees may not travel between cities after dark, may not hail taxis on the street, and must rely on dispatched vehicles, including app-based services like Uber, and regulated taxi stands. U.S. government employees may not drive from the U.S.-Mexico border to or from the interior parts of Mexico, with the exception of daytime travel within Baja California, between Nogales and Hermosillo on Mexican Federal Highway 15D, and between Nuevo Laredo and Monterrey on Highway 85D. U.S. government employees should avoid traveling alone, especially in remote areas.

I find these state department warnings to be overhyped. You can usually travel anywhere and your chances of getting involved in a bad incident are minimal.

Depends where in Mexico you are going. We go alone into Rocky Point every year including last year. Never a hint of a problem

So no one wants to travel with me? I guess this forum is just for folks living in assisted living facilities called RV parks
