One December evening, Eamon and I were dreaming and planning our year ahead with a glass (or two) of wine in hand. I can’t recall who blurted it out first (let’s blame the vino here) but I do remember us both being a bit intimated by the idea… as if we were going to drive our self-converted Sprinter Van down to Mexico! But, as the story goes, it was mid-winter in Toronto and the harsh temperatures were beginning to take their toll on us and our 60 sq-ft home on wheels. So, as you can imagine, the idea of driving as far south as possible didn’t take much convincing.
And with that, we headed to the beach.
Having just returned home from our wild adventure, we’re here to share our top five tips for making the most of your RV holiday in Mexico!
1. ENJOY THE JOURNEY
We all know the old saying “the journey is more important than the destination” and in our travel experience, this could not be truer. Our engine failed on us our second day in Mexico and finding a mechanic, replacing the motor, and getting back on the road took up three weeks. Instead of dwelling on the wrench this threw in our initial plans we decided to make the most of our time in Central Mexico. We explored neighbouring towns, hung out with new local friends and ate as many tacos as we could stomach!
