Many RVers on vacation in Texas are concerned about the news they hear about violence along the RGV border with Mexico.
This seems to be a contributing factor when they are deciding where to travel.
Here are some excerpts from the writings of a local authority on traveling to Mexico, "Mexico Mike".
• "MEXICO IS SAFE FOR TRAVEL, is the latest news flash. Three weeks, 3,500 miles, all our destinations achieved, traveling "controversial areas,"
with NO ISSUES." read entire article
• "Everything went very well in our "Colonial Mexico" Caravane Soleil which began on Nov. 12 and ended on Dec. 8. We traveled over 2,400 kilometers
of roads ... We had no problems; we have never feared for our safety." read entire article
• "The average American or Canadian tourist is very, very unlikely to be in danger. As one consular official said, "I cannot guarantee my own safety if
I visit New York City if I am not aware of my surroundings." read entire article
"Mexico" Mike Nelson is the authority on driving, spas and living and working in Mexico. "He coaxes visitors onto roads less traveled, to spots less obvious,
than the beach resorts" -- The New York Times visit www.mexicomike.com
