RVing in Mexico – Planning Checklist

RVing in Mexico – Planning Checklist

We’re getting close to kicking off our RVing in Mexico adventure… but first, so many items to check off our planning list before we cross the border! From RV Insurance to pet documents to moving our storage unit, it’s been a busy couple of weeks and we cover it all in this video. Our biggest challenge right now (and one of the last things preventing us from leaving Florida) is finding a new to us, inexpensive toad. Have you put a tow base-plate on a vehicle yourself? Easy to do on your own?


New (December 2019) Pet Regulations:
You no longer need a pet health certificate to bring cats or dogs into Mexico by car/rv! This does not change any rules required by airlines if you fly into Mexico.

Mexico (Spanish) to show to anyone who requests a copy of a pet certificate – Hat tip to Qroo.us!
