RV Caravan into Mexico

I've heard there are RV caravans that go into Mexico, have any of u tried this ? I think that would be interesting, I've done the trip down to Rocky Point out of AZ, but I'd like to go further.

To start, Mike has always been good online help.

https://www.mexicomike.com/rv/rv-caravans.html

and he will recommend Mexico RV Caravan Tours 1-855-327-7555 if you are looking for an existing 'package' approach.

Edit: Here are a couple who are experiencing an RV tour to Mexico. http://www.travelwithkevinandruth.co...to-mexico.html

Edit II: Why not find one and tag along?

One of the highlights of each day's caravan adventure program is sitting around in a circle and playing Bingo

If Bingo's the big adventure, then I'm selling my RV and going on an adventure website. When my husband was alive, we never sat around drinking and playing Bingo. I'm 61 and looking for a second driver/travel companion with a sense of adventure. I eat very healthfully and one glass of wine is the max for me.

The caravans are pricy, not to mention how much money you would lose on bingo.

Then you are all set - both emotionally and physically - to head off by yourself and avoid the aggravation of being herded around by bossy wagon masters and tail enders.
Yes, I couldn't believe it when after an hour of turmoil (but quite amusing to watch) throughout the RV park as they banged and scraped their bigrigs into too-small sites and figured out how to dig out the sewer drains so they could connect and work out how to plug their 50 amp shore power into 15 amp outlets, the hapless caravanees, having paid thousands of dollars to be there, meekly sat around while the wagon master used a loud PA system to harangue everyone - including all the rest of the spectators in the park whether they were interested or not - for 40 minutes - and THEN went on to play bingo for the rest of the afternoon using the same loud distorted sound system.
The other amusing little habit is to hear every RV make a radio call in turn - Caravan XYZ #abc rolling - every time they set off.

Not for everyone, but some people like to give up their freedoms to stop and smell the flowers, or flexibility to leave at 11am or stop at 2pm, in exchange for the illusion of security as they cross the borders into third-world countries such as Canada and Mexico

Mexico

Yes, it sounds a little pricey to me, plus I also am not one for Bingo and I would not like someone with a bull horn telling me what or what not to do, I'd be long gone !
I'll just stick to going to Rocky Point.

Yea I wondered if it was safe going with a caravan of RVers or just as dangerous. I don't need to take my precious motorhome into Mexico as much as I'd love to go to Baja California, Mexico
