I agree about living the dream! How difficult was/is it to bring your trailer into Mexico, James?

Having an older rig probably helped when traveling Mexico... I would guess it marked James as someone who wasn't a good target for a "shakedown".

Had to register the trailer and car at the border point and obtain a certificate of importation and show proof of Mexican insurance on both. Took me about two hours to do that and I was on my way south without a clue about where I was going to land.

I received nothing but friendly help from the Mexican people during my travels in their country. I did try to keep a very low profile and to learn to speak Spanish.
Returning there now I would choose to leave my rig at home and use the public transportation system. Its cheap, safe and well developed. Should write a blog sometime about my experiences in that amazingly interesting country.

Yes, please do write a blog about your trip!

There's a fellow on the Teardrop and Tiny Travel Trailer forum that goes down to Mexico, stays in the lesser known or busy beach areas, and fishes and explores. His descriptions of his travels make me want to explore too, but first I have to learn more Spanish than what I can decipher from my very rusty French and what I remember from watching Sesame Street with my three sons.

This looks interesting...

James, thanks for posting the pictures and for a little more info on your travels in Mexico.

That's the same thing Tioga George says about his travels in Mexico... except for the low profile, maybe. He learned Spanish and enjoys mixing with the locals, and has thoroughly enjoyed the people and the places.

Sorry for the late reply, but I have been without internet access.

But that would mean staying in hotels, different beds all the time, no kitchen to call your own while you travel. I would like to hear more about your view of the pros and cons of the two different travel methods within Mexico. (I might be exploring Mexico myself someday soon.)

I found it best to find a place you like, rent a small apartment, and base your travels from there via the bus systems. Advantage is cheap travel costs and no driving hassles. Driving in Mexico is a heads up job. Inexpensive hotels are easy to find if you ask around. I avoided the usual tourist destinations.

We've been fulltiming in a 17' Casita Liberty (with a dog & 2 cats) since the end of May 2011. We've worked/lived at a couple of campgrounds & are now running a Christmas tree lot in San Antonio. It's intense, but will plump up the bank account a tad. Our plan is to travel & work some while investigating a new area. We live outside as much as is comfortable & are trying to "follow the sun". When 'outside' is uncomfortable, my 'egg' is oh so cozy.
