Taking a Mexico Road trip?
Many thousands of snowbirds make their way annually from Canada and the US to Mexico. Many RV and many more drive to warmer destinations and sunnier climates. Some of those travelers are nervous with reports about drug cartels and have opted to stay home while others just “couldn’t” winter in any other destination.
Mexico road travel experts Bill and Dot Bell have been driving extensively in Mexico for 25 years and offer plenty of advice to make your road trip safer and easier. They also offer a match-making service, Travel Buddies, for people who want to drive together for security and companionship.
“For safety’s sake we suggest drivers read up on the basics for Mexican driving. Don’t drive at night. Get out of border areas as soon as possible. Start your drive days early,” says Dot Bell. “Informed travelers are safer drivers.”
The Bells started the Travel Buddy service for Mexico road travelers five years ago and is free. It lists newbies, caravans as well as experienced drivers that enjoy showing new travelers the roads. “We are pleased that there are drivers that just want to share Mexico with others. It is an amazingly beautiful and diverse country,” says Bell. “Travel Buddies helps build skills and gives confidence to others.”
To sign up for the Free Travel Buddy service, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org answer the “Five Magic Questions.”

Bill and Dorothy Bell were given the “Real Heroes of Mexico” honor. They have been writing and traveling the country for over 25 years and have visited all 31 Mexican States over a dozen times each. They are currently on a 3 month road trip in Mexico (Oaxaca right now) and can be reached on their Mexican cell at 322 – 294 – 4979 or email email@example.com
