When we lived down there, Columbia was our preferred crossing spot. We stayed in various places over the years including Matehuala, which would allow dogs back in the day. It's been a while though so I am unfamiliar with the current visa structures. Is Residencia Temporal like the old tourist visa--up to 180 days? I ask because I, too, would like to bring a U.S. plated vehicle.
Does anyone here know firsthand of someone allowed to cross a land border into Mexico in the last little bit, say 2 months? I can't seem to find a definitive, authoritative source on this subject. I met someone who will be flying into Merida in a week or two. Her understanding is that those flying in are permitted to enter while those trying a border crossing are subjected to some type of "essential travel" test. Thanks.
