So Why Should You RV in Mexico
MEXICO - On the Road In leads you to safe and enjoyable camping
throughout this amazing country. We think you will agree with us that
camping in Mexico is an exciting adventure once you have experienced the
diversity of the land and the charm of the people. Plan and enjoy this
country from coast to coast and every stop along the way.
Experience a Different Culture
Mexico is so different! As soon as you drive
across the border the sights and sounds change. For those of you who have
flown into Mexico, you know what a shock it is to your system when you
disembark. All your senses pick up at once.

The smells. From taco stands to "carbon"
chickens. The tropical flowers and trees. The ocean breezes. The humidity and heat curl around and
somehow this tropical wave, intense aroma, tackles you and surprises you when you
least expect it.
The climate. The weather is fantastic and the beaches are
endless. Desert beaches and tropical beaches. Palm lined deserted beaches to
urban resort beaches. Enjoy all the toys and water sports including
swimming, fishing, surfing, boogie boarding, snorkeling, scuba diving,
sailing to name a few.
The climate in much of the interior is mild and
springtime warm - enjoyable year round.

The language. Yes you can get by using
English and hand gestures. Many Mexican schools teach English, so usually
with a couple of words here and a couple of words there, you can communicate
with a native Mexican.
The Art. The statues, murals, paintings.
Many of Mexico's cities, Guanajuato or Pátzcuaro are urban art unto
themselves. A virtual photographers paradise.
The History. Mexico’s history dominates the
everywhere you go. It seems like every city and town has a Benito Juarez
Street, a Hidalgo Boulevard and an Avenue de las Revolution…Explore the
ancient cultures – the builders of pyramid cities and calendars - to the
conquistadores – ripping, conquering and discovering this land.
revolution. Reform after reform. Mexico's history is exciting and remembered
everywhere. Every town has some significant tribute to a general
or a war or a hero.
Drive to Mexico
You can drive to Mexico. If you drive just
three more hours past Disneyland in your car or RV, you can be right at the
Tijuana border crossing.

Driving has advantages. When you fly in you
rarely explore past the resort areas.
You stay at a hotel, often an all
inclusive, and you eat resort city food. If you rent a car in Mexico you
will find that it is expensive (economy car $50-70 per day) and we have
been less than pleased with the condition of the vehicle on a number of
When you drive you can explore. Take a road
that isn’t as well traveled. You will be able to enjoy the “getting there”
as well as the numerous destinations along the way. If you find something of
interest you can stop. Smell the roses and vamoose when you want.
As an Rver you will have even more
advantages. You will be able to cook some of the most fantastic seafood you
have ever tasted in your own mobile kitchen. Spice it up with your special sauces.
You will get to shop where Mexicans shop. Stores yes, but also markets,
specialty markets – such as the Ensenada Fish market. You will find that
there are a number of merchants, vegetable, fish etc. that often drive from
campsite to campsite, selling their goods. As an RVer you are in control of
your water. No guessing.
Driving an RV ensures you sleep in your own
bed and have your familiar surroundings and supplies. You can stretch a
holiday from a 2 week vacation into a 2 month or longer trip. Budgets just
stretch farther in an RV.
Sunny and hot weather is a key attraction. When it is 20 below in Manitoba,
snowing in Montreal or New York, raining in Victoria or Seattle - it's
heaven to be basking away on the Caribbean or Sea of Cortez beach smiling smugly
about the weather back home.
people haven’t discovered about Mexico is the diversity of weather. In the
summer one of the best places to be is Guadalajara and other interior

There is nothing quite like the warm tropical breezes when
it is melting down on the coast. We were surprised one Christmas in Mexico
City when it snowed. Even more surprised when the temperature went down to
below 0 in Chihuahua.
Canadian and American snowbirds usually flock
to Mexico for the endless days of bright sunny weather. The only thing you seem
to need to shovel is a little bit of sand.
Mexico has an
endless variety of beaches. Playas. There is something for everyone who
enjoys a bit of salt water, a few palm trees and some sand.
There is also an endless variety of activities that
you can enjoy on some of the beaches. MEXICO - On The Road In will help you determine
just the right spot for you to camp and enjoy fishing, surfing, parasailing,
snorkeling or diving. When you drive to Mexico you can bring your own boat,
rod or scuba equipment enjoy your sport on any number of
beaches on Bahía Concepción
Best yet is waking up each morning and watching
the waves roll in as you sip your morning coffee. You shuffle the lawn chair
beside your rig and become mesmerized by the ocean vistas. Another day in
Mexico is not the bargain it once was but it is
still a relatively inexpensive country to travel. Camping saves money on
accommodation and even more money on food.
We don't advocate eating every
meal in your rig, but we do think it is a lot of fun and saves loads of cash
when you create magical meals using Mexican regional ingredients.
The accommodation is reasonable. Generally for a
no-hook-up beach camp, the fee is approximately $7 US per night. For a
full-hook-ups beach camp, the fee is approximately 25 -30 US per night for
2 people. In
resort community, an RV Park with swimming pools, Jacuzzi's, recreation
complexes can cost over $25 per night but is still good value compared to
camping at home or renting a room in the same complex. Of course you can get
a bargain by staying a month or more.
The Adventure of It All
While we enjoy flying in and out of
Mexico for short sweet vacations, we love the adventure of traveling through
Mexico with our mobile casa. We are in control of our time and therefore
being the authors of our story, meet more people and experience more
adventures when we travel and camp.
We wouldn't have stopped at nearly as many out of the
way places or camped in remote locations. Traveling by RV becomes an adventure
that would be impossible to experience while staying exclusively at an all
We go to Mexico to enjoy Mexico, and so far, RVing is
the way we like exploring Mexico best.
