Don't live with in fear, you'll be fine...people are pretty welcoming and accepting everywhere... it's our politics that people hate. Trust me, go... a few years back I met a couple in Belize that drove down from California... best experience of their lives... also on the same trip we met a family in Guatemala from California that took busses down with their four kids every Christmas (two were still in diapers). Just do it... seriously.. fuck it, just go! You (probably) won't regret it... there's risk in everything

On the outskirts of cities, there are motels with garages. We call them sexy motels, because that is where people hook up and they drive into the garage and stay in the motel, no one see's the car with the door shut. Cheap and secure.

Re: Road Trip through Mexico
My husband was born in mexico. Now a proud US citizen voted Trump. His family that live in mexico are afraid all the time.

Mexico city is a real fear. Went there 7 years ago and i cannot tell you how many times we were scared.

Scared of the military police with semi autos on their backs.

Or the pickpocket's that reached in my sisters pants and caught a feel too

Luckily we had my husband carry all money. We stayed in hotel after dark

We most definitely did not have a car. It would be stolen.

People are really hard up down there. I would go with a friend if you can.

Mexico is much worse than 7 years ago. We avoid it right now even with family there. Too much cartel violence and poverty causing crime.

He just told me a old story about a military cop with a gun on his back stopping my mex husband and mex friend. Husband showed his US ID as well as greencard (before he was citizen) and the cop straight up asked for money to let them go. Was going to imprison them somehow if they didnt have money.

I know its tempting. I ask to go all the time. But they are in bad shape right now.

Small villages that are nice for tourists is a good bet but mexico city is super sketchy.

Maybe you can fly into somewhere touristy and then take a bus to another town

I was just in Mexico on Christmas day and night. Drove too San Felipe to find out my room had no head, 40 F. that on the oceanfront hotel. Turned around and headed back to Scottsdale Az. In San Luis Mex. border crossing. It was night and half the street lights were out, people Jaywalking everywhere. Mexican cop started scream at me to pull over as it was confusing just what the Fuck was going on. The cop knew, demanded my drivers licence, then demanded $100 US as a fine to get my driver licence back. Knowing I couldn't get back across with it being a big ass hassle. Plus he could have just locked my ass up, Mexican Extortion.

Re: Road Trip through Mexico
put a decal of the virgen de guadalupe on your
windshield.

watch out for the topes, paches profundos, dogs,
livestock, burros, children in the road.

beware of traps set by cops at intersections
in the larger towns where they'll have some
dupe bump into you and claim you ran into him.

watch out for some slamming on their brakes
right in front of you and then robbing you
blind when you get out of car.

check that all gas pumps are set at zero before
pumping.

watch out for the places along the road where there
are absolutely zero shoulders and an immediate
twenty foot drop-off.

drink only bottled water.

don't dress like a typical doofus gringo tourist.

drive cautiously and curteously, . .and pray for
assistance from the angels and you just might
get back home ok with some fond memories.

Re: Road Trip through Mexico
Not worth the risk - if you truly love life and don't want to cause your family back home a lot of heartache when you turn up missing, in jail for nothing, or dead months later.

Everyone is corrupt - everyone. The Federalies will "kidnap" you and hold you until someone, anyone gives them money to release you. The "regular" cops will pull you over, and "hold" you for a while in the back of a car on any given street, for any amount of time that they desire until they either get the amount of money they want, and if not pop you into a jail cell that has more flies on the walls than people in TJ.

Seems everyone is related in some way or another. Yes, they call each other in various parts of town letting others know where you are headed. And if you go down there with a "fairly nice" car, you are just a shining light right on you like moths to the flame they will come and take it from you.

I've been down there in many areas for ages. I know people that actually do business down there - the minute they cross the border into Mexico they have the satellite phone ready and never drive at night.

Re: Road Trip through Mexico
Any chance you can cross the boarder with a dog?
I'm not sure what the rules are but if you are able, always travel with a big ass loyal dog.

I have never traveled to Mexico so I can't speak for it specifically but here's my two cents on traveling:

When I travel to larger cities both domestic and abroad, I always dress way down. Dress in older clothing that fits in with the locals. Appear as if you would be a complete waste of time to rob.

Also always keep your head up. Make direct eye contact with everyone. Acknowledge everyone who makes eye contact with you with a simple and confident nod.

Carry yourself as if you are confident, aware and own your space.

I am female. I live and work in a downtown area with many unsavory types roaming about. I routinely go in and out of both my home and work place at all hours of the night and I have yet to have anyone give me any problems. Hopefully my luck holds out :p

But in all seriousness, I believe a lot of it is confidence and awareness of your surroundings.

Most people, even those with ill intent, are lazy and not looking for a struggle. If they don't see you as an easy target they usually move on and if they believe you might be a very difficult target, they will most certainly look for easier prey.

Corrupt law enforcement, however, may be a different set of rules and I have not had to deal with that situation specifically, perhaps someone else could chime in? I would be interested to hear advice on evading trouble with compromised officials. It is certainly an entirely different set of tactics.

Re: Road Trip through Mexico
I've traveled in Mexico a bit. I've seen 4 cars pass 10 on a two lane road (highway) in the daytime. Nights are crazier. Seriously... don't drive at night. Many trucks will turn on their left blinker to signal you to pass them but they do miscalculate sometimes. "Topes" is Spanish for speed mountain, on the actual highway. If you go for this, there is a good chance that something scary will happen during your trip. Above all else, keep you cool.

Love these idiots that have never been here tell others what goes on here.

I am a 6´2 WHITE American that immigrated to Mexico 11 years ago. Never have I felt more safer in my life. It is MUCH safer than being around groids in Atlanta.
 Quoting: BANE 72012590


Much more to this story that we do not know. Where in Mexico? 6'2 compared to the 5'2 aztecs? Rich in a gated and guarded community? etc, etc, etc.

Simply go on google street view and pick ANY city or town and you will immediately notice something about Mexico. EVERY house, no matter how poor looking, has a wall or iron fence around their property and burglar bars on every window and door. Ask yourself why dirt poor people would spend so much money on such hard security and you have your answer about Mexico. Mexicans do not even trust their neighbors not to steal or invade.

I had something similar happen with a parking ticket. Had to may $20, then got confronted by an angry gang of shop owners mad at me for paying him. I had to get my license back to catch a charter flight the next morning and he was going to keep it until the court date.

Don't tell yourself it's not dangerous because it is. All this was many years ago when it was safer.

4.-Don't go solo
5.-Plan the places and time in every site. Popular Restaurant
Read first , travel later !!
6.-Don't drink the water
7.-Define preference :Summer is hot , winter is mild cold, rainy and windy.

So surprising (not!) that most people in Mexico think and vote like typical liberals. No ethics, no integrity, no honesty, no higher standards.

Mexico is sort of like Hillary Clinton.
