Camping in Mexico

Hi y'all...

Hey, we're considering a trip to Mexico in December/January timeframe. Looking at San Felipe area. We're two women and 3 dogs. Questions:

- Is it safe for us to travel in Mexico?
- Have any of you been to San Felipe? If so, what do you think of it? Worth the trip?
- Are there different spots you would recommend?
- What should we keep in mind and prepare for in planning a camping trip to Mexico?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

These are the good old days!

Dolly, your questions will open up a can of worms. You'll hear horror stories of why it would be a big mistake to cross into Mexico. Some will question your sanity.

On the other hand, those of us who actually have gotten our information by going to Mexico ourselves would say; San Felipe has been a destination for American tourists for a very long time. I'd call it Baja Light.

There are sites like Baja Nomad that have more info than you'll ever need answered by folks that live and breath Baja. Warning: some are pretty hard core nutcases because the moderators are much more lenient than I like. However the knowledgeable experience is there and you will find info on specifics.


PS, I just got my Russian visa today, bet there's some eyes rolling about that too.

I'm sure that set off a couple of alarms down in Virginia....
