More of our Mexico RV caravan group...

We're going to tell you about a few more of our Mexico RV caravan participants. Next up is a very independent single lady, Danielle.

Danielle (68) is originally from the area around Los Angeles, California, and is currently living full time in her class B van....although she calls Reno, Nevada home.

She doesn't live alone though! Her canine partner Yankee, is never far from her side...

Not sure if you can read Danielle's shirt, but it says "Happy Camper - Life is Good"

What prompted you to do this caravan?

I had previously visited Baja California in my van, but I wanted to see the mainland of Mexico, and I was concerned about safety traveling alone. That concern has been alleviated.

What are your impressions of the caravan?

This is my first caravan, and it exceeded my expectations. I have seen places that I would have never seen on my own.

What are your impressions of Mexico? 

I love Mexico, especially the people and the easy going, friendly lifestyle.

Have you felt safe travelling around Mexico?

Yes!!!

What has been your favorite experience, or highlight of the trip?

The night walk with the wandering minstrels around Guanajuato.

Would you return to travel by yourself or with another caravan?

I will return by myself, and possibly with another caravan.

And next up, we have John and Janice...semi retired business owners from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

John and Janice from Toronto, Canada.

What prompted you to do this caravan?

John (60) and Janice (59) have spent a lot of time in Florida escaping the cold Canadian winter, but they feel that the weather there is not as consistent as they would like it to be. So, they figured they might find something better travelling in Mexico.

What are your impressions of the caravan?

It's fun having the comeraderie of the group, but it's not as much beach time as we would have liked. We knew ahead of time that we would be spending quite a lot of time in the higher altitudes where it's cooler, but we think we would like to spend more time where it's warmer in future trips.

It was great traveling with the Green Angels and the feeling of security that affords if you happen to have mechanical problems on the road.


What are your impressions of Mexico? 

We love the friendly people and the great food!

Have you felt safe travelling around Mexico?

Yes.

What has been your favorite experience, or highlight of the trip?

The Copper Canyon trip. Oh, and the trip up into the mountains of Jalisco to visit the mescal distillery was the most authentic Mexican experience ever!

Would you return to travel by yourself or with another caravan?

Probably with another caravan, but not this particular route. Prefer warmer climate.
