Mexican Driving Permit

Posted August 17th, 2014  by Chuck Lundy ·  No Comments

Most travelers to Mexico know that they must have Mexican driving insurance to drive in Mexico; however, driving in certain areas of the country requires drivers to have a Mexican driving permit. Driving within twenty-five miles of the border as well as throughout the Baja Peninsula and permit-free locales like Rocky Point does not necessitate a permit. For those drivers planning longer excursions into the interior of the country to visit some of Mexico’s most extraordinary natural features, a permit must be procured from the Banco Nacional del Ejército Fuerza Aérea y Armada, or Banjercito as it is known.

Driving in Mexico

Posted August 1st, 2014  by Michelle ·  No Comments

Driving in Mexico can be intimidating for the inexperienced, but this article will help you understand the people of Mexico as related to driving in Mexico, so that you will feel more comfortable. With Mexico being so different from American and Canadian cultures, many tourists choose Driving in Mexico, rather than fly since it’s so close. I’ve heard stories of Americans crossing the border, then after seeing how Mexican motorists navigate, they immediately took the first U-turn opportunity and got in line to come back to the safety of the US of A.
