Steve,

Thanks for the web sites they have been valuable in planning my trip to Mexico.

I am planning to spend 4 days in Mexico next month assuming all my repairs are completed. I will evaluate where we stay and post a review with pictures for those who are interested.

I found this link. I purchased the RV'ing in Mexico DVD and my wife and I loved it.

You don’t have to know anything about Mexico to fall in love with this adventure. The scenery is spectacular, the narration is informative yet personable. I can’t wait for the next edition. Mexico here we come!

For anyone who is interested in RV'ing in Mexico I would strongly recommend purchasing "Traveler's Guide to Mexican Camping by Mike Church" It is a fantastic book on RV camp sites with detailed reviews of each, some more so then others. I would never travel into Mexico without it....

He also has "Traveler's Guide to Alaska Camping by Mike Church" I last went up there 4 yrs ago and the CG descriptions still match very well.

 ???We hope we didn't offend you by offering to share free advice and info from us, our, wagonmasters, or our website.  We love camping in Mexico and have done it for decades.  We just want to share that with people.  We are here to give you any info you want for free.  We have gone to Mexico on our own since the beginning, without guides or caravans.  We tend to have friends  with more intrepid personalities that have the moxy to go it alone.  Our post to your question was not to get you to go with us. It was to tell you to use as a resource any way you want.  We get calls from the Churchs frequently and share with them all the info we can from our most recent trips.   We are a  quasi resource for them. You can contact us any time you just want to talk Mexico.  You can contact us if you want up to date info about the rv parks in Baja.  All for free!!!!!   ;)

Again we were not trying to offend anyone. 8)

I haven't seen anything that can be construed as offensive....  ??? to anyone.

However after seeing your web site I honestly don't see why anyone would pay those fees to caravan.... :o but hey, to each his own.

Three of my reasons:

1. I wanted to take the Copper Canyon Piggyback Train. It can only be done through a caravan.

2. I do all the driving, setting up, trip planning, cooking, etc. and take care of my wife with Alzheimer's. It was pretty nice having almost every evening meal and many lunches planned for us.

3. I can afford it, I'm spending my kid's inheritance ;)

Hi Baja,

We also took a trip with Fantasy Caravan to the Copper Canyon.  The a big advantage to a caravan for us was that we could go on the Piggyback train with our rig.  AND the camaraderie of those friends we met on the trip was not  an item you could equate with money.  It was not something I expected , it just happened and we continue to see those friends via reunions and visits  to their neck of the woods back home.  I also felt more comfortable with having so many of the arrangements in Mexico already made.

As Scoundrel said to each their own.  We have always done our own thing and are happy to see others willing to do the same and help others along the way.   It's kinda like the advice that if your going to dive in the water head first you should have someone who knows where the rocks are or to very cautiously do your own reconoisance. 

The following info is to help anyone considering the Copper Canyon without the piggyback.

Our group to the Copper Canyon last year rode the first class passenger up from el fuerte.  They left their rigs at Bill's El Fuert RV Park.  They said the food on the train was tasty and the views were breathtaking.  Their three day stay at La Mansion Tarahumara included meals and bus and walking tours.  Bill at El Fuerte RV park can coordinate this trip for anyone who wants it(it's not just for caravaners only,  unlike the piggyback).  There were a few couples they met in the hotel there on honeymoons that had booked there stay on the internet with the hotel itself.  Bill set up the taxi from the RV park to the station and the return.  Bill also arranged the care of any pets for 5 dollars a day they were fed watered and walked twice a day.   Some of our group expressed relief that they weren't couped up in their rig on the rail car for days.  They enjoyed the short trip and freedom to interact with the other people in our group(most people caravan for the social aspect).  Some expressed a desire to still do the piggy back and be able to take in more of the region.  Scoundrel nailed it on the head to each their own. 

It can definitely be done solo and that would offer so much more to those who want to have the freedom to set their own schedule and see what they want to see and experience what they want to experience not what the group is set to do. 

On the other hand as Betty made clear some relationships and shared experiences can be created that will last a lifetime(as the credit card commercial says, ....PRICELESS!!!!).

Good Luck on your trip to the Canyon 8)
