    Andy, we suggest you check with Adriana at Yucatan Expatriate Services... she is probably one of the most knowledgeable people around on that subject.

    Can anyone give me information about the problems with those of us with visas having trouble driving foreign plated vehicles back to the States? My wife and I would like to drive our foreign plated car across the border and we have heard of instances where foreign plated cars have been confiscated.
