Well you have heard us talk about Mexico and show lots of pictures of Mexico, so I guess you can easily figure out that we like Mexico. If you told us four or five years ago that you could drive a motorhome into and around Mexico we would have thought you were crazy. Well I think now that other people think we are crazy because now we have done it twice and love it!!!!
When we decided to start our fulltime motor homing we were going to drive around the south and southwest part of the States but our new friends Glen and Steve talked us into going down to the Mexican Baja with them for two months. We thought this would be a great time to see how they travel fulltime (boondocking) most of the time and in a different country, plus it gave us peace of mind to be travelling with someone while down there. We had a blast and we learned a lot.
Last year we decide to travel with them once again in mainland Mexico. Again we had a blast. We gained a lot of confidence in ourselves while travelling through Mexico and after two months we parted ways. Glen and Steve went backpacking into Belize and Guatamala by then we were confident enough to continue on by ourselves for the next two and a half months.
We saw so much of the real Mexico and found it to be a very safe place. The people are absolutely wonderful, helpful and giving. We have fantastic memories of Mexico and some of the places we visited were spectatular (and cheap), food is great (and cheap) and they have beautiful ruins (lots of UNESCO sites). We can’t wait to go back again next year.
