Based on events over the last week which include the theft of a Canadian toad, I am offering again one of the most important travel tips in Mexico.
Mexico is still a paper based society and we ask for lots of documents and copies. This is good for travelers in any country and not just rvers.
Make copies of all your travel documents:
- driver's license
- vehicle registration
- pictures of your vehicles
- pictures of your license plates
- vehicle titles
- copies of keys
- important phone numbers; your local DMV, accountant, etc.
Scan them, burn a copy on CD, USB stick, and then email yourself the documents. Send one of the CDs to a friend or family member. No one every knows what can happen. Imagine a fire in your rv (god forbid), theft, car accident, etc.
Know before you go.
