Not Bribing Cops in Mexico OVERLAND TRAVEL SAGA Ep.37

Driving the Caribbean Coast Mexico, we end up dealing with the cops and changing our plans a bunch of times before finding paradise. But that’s how real overland travel goes. Now time is running out for us traveling in Mexico as our visas are nearly expired and we must keep traveling on to new adventures.

  1. Sure sounds like y'all are being scammed by them peoples down there… Their trying to get into your wallet… They got you marked… They'll do just about to get into your wallet if you let them… And if one gets in your wallet they call around and tell their friends to be watching for your truck… It's a sorry shame that they do that to people that come to their country… But at least not everyone's that way… Just mainly around the resort areas… Just keep having fun in spite of them… They love taking advantage of Gringos if they can… Be blessed… BBE..

  2. I really enjoyed this video. I looks like you may have recently painted your camper? I also love snorkeling. keep up the great videos (especially the ones with fellow travelers).

  3. wow super cool video!! the resort where you guys are stay is absolutely stunning!! and those views of the beach are breath taking!! as a travel couple we really liked your channel and cant wait to watch more of your videos!!!
