We knew it was time to head back to California. Ed promised me three months and we had to be out of Mexico before the start of Semana Santa. Semana Santa is the week before Easter, simular to our Spring Break. Mexican families head to the beach for a week long party. The campgrounds kick out the American and Canadian tourists and will put 5 families in the space that we would usually use. Along the way home, we wanted to check out some beaches that we missed on the way down. First stop was Punta Perula. We had heard about the beautiful water in Punta Perula Bay from several people during our journey. We were the only campers at Playa Dorado Campground and the owner Luis was very welcoming. We parked the camper right on ... read more

Our destination was the Migracion Office (where you take care of the people paperwork), then the Banjercito (where the vehicle documentation is done) both are located 19 miles from the border and has quite a bit of parking. Knowing the drill saved us some wait time; the Migracion is the first stop, then the copy window, which is essential, finally the Banjercito. Most people skipped the copy window …and they havve to go back, get copies and go to the end of the line.
