IMBurnen Posted May 20, 2019 Report Share Posted May 20, 2019 To avoid any issues with pets and hotels, don't stay in hotels. They are not supportive of pets. I have made your same trip several times with 3 large dogs. I don't mention them when checking in (no tels work if you arrive early with food but there are plenty of motels on the coast) and have never had a problem. If you don't speak Spanish (hopefully you're learning?) bring an app that supports translation in case of an emergency. I had a blowout driving North recently which left me facing 3 lanes of oncoming traffic on the side with no shoulder. Luckily the Federales drove by and called a tow truck for me while I waved traffic out of my lane. You never know and as a single woman it's best to prepare for eventualities. Have water and oil in your car and pre-program the numbers for emergency calls in each of the states you will pass through. My final bit of advice: remember Mexico is a big country and each region has value so don't get stuck in an English speaking area rut. Yeah, don't bother with the comments, to some it's a rut.
