take a spanish dictionary with you,
english is not spoken everywhere, especially not in remote areas. Recommend
"Reisewörterbuch Spanisch" from Pons or Klett.
We recomend to get a annual insurance
if traveling longer than 3 weeks
and save a lot of money and get more services for your money! (Some Insurerance
Companies include in there anual insurance: towing, legal aid, parts shipping
cost ect). After about 3 weeks the price of daily or anual insurance is
the same, after abt. 26 days you pay more at the daily rate and get less
Don´t stay alone when parking
Always look for other RV´s,
cars and people. We had several reports on single RV´s being attacked
during the night south of San Quintin and Punta Arena near San Jose del
Cabo (there are many Pt Arenas in Baja). Windows were knocked in and tires
were cut with knives, people were forced to give there money.
Only use a small amount of your
money in traveller cheques,
because it´s a problem having
them changed. We were lucky in Ensenada, Loreto, La Paz and Cabo. The Bank
in Loreto offered best exchange rates and no fees ! Pay with Pesos you
are better off!!
A few miles north of Colonia Guerrero,
San Quintin there is a new and bilangual tourist info at the right hand
side traveling south.
Take an extra can of gasoline
(Benzin), a good spare Tire (Reifen),
a jack (Wagenheber) and nut-drivers (Schraubensclüssel/Werkzeuge)
with you. Always try to get the latest news on the campgrounds and the
prices, exchange rates and fuel price.
