Hello to everyones from the Republic of Mexico. First sorry for my English, it is nor my best . . . . We are a Spanish couple ( from Europe) who are traveling throughout Mexico ourself from 2 months ago with our 4x4 car with camping equipament.. We visited beatiful. beaches, jungles, charming villages, colonial cities, etc.. (Total 7500 kms). It's wonderful but our trip comes to an end and we sell our 4x4 and camping gear for 4900 euros (6,500 euros cost us all in the U.S. because these vehicles and equipment are not easy to get in Mexico or are very expensive)). The car is a long based 4x4 (5 mtos long), good condition Dodge ram 2500 model 2000 with air conditioning, and we will review and thoroughly equip for the journey: MP3 music, IPOD, alarm connected to the mobile phone, suspensions reinforced, new clutch, rear bed portable and camping equipment: 160 w solar panel, inverter 12-220 1000 v w, second battery 100 amp deep discharge, external battery charger, set of 5 LED rechargeable flashlights, GPS with TomTom Maps of USA and Mexico (hard to get), Television 19 inch LED 12 V, 2 bikes with dual suspension aluminum mountainbike, 1 removable exterior bike rack, 2 snorkel equipment, 1 tent camping for 2 people, 1 tent campaign for 6 people , 1 foldind canopy for shade, 1 kitchen with 2 burner portable gas bottles large, 1 large folding table with 2 chairs, 2 hammocks, 1 large ice box (40 liters), 1 set complete tools, all tableware cooking and eating, etc.. . . everything that you needed to enjoy a trip independently and economically. We were staying at campsites (3-8 euros / night the couple) and often in free camping on the beaches ... The car is from United States and is registered in on my name and have paid their taxes in the U.S. and into Mexico for 6 months (takes 2 months). It also has insurance for 6 months in Mexico. When you finish your tour in Mexico ( or another Central American countries ) you can sell the car like meo because I give you the original paperwork on notary . Also included in the sale route information, maps, etc.. .
this is a good opportunity to travel independently and saving. And you have not the inconvenience, paperwork and expense of buying everything in the U.S. and the dangerous border crossing north of Mexico. (Which we did it.). You can fly from anywhere to Cancun for a low rates. We are currently in the Riviera Maya (near Cancun) Anyway, if you're interested, send me an email: The best Regards. Goiko..

Posting this in the Central American forum makes no sense--Mexico is part of North America.
