I'm planning on an April trip to Sierra Vista via motorcycle. What documentation is currently required to enter Mexico aside from the basic passport and my motor vehicle insurance coverage? Do you folks routinely cross the border for shopping/medical reasons? Also, is Herioca Nogales a popular destination?

As a mid-westerner, my knowledge of Arizona and Mexico issues is lacking. National news media paints a bleak picture for the safety of US citizens crossing into Mexico - but your opinions [here] trump the media.

Thanks for your comments.

Mexico insurance and your passport should do it, but where will you go? Naco, Agua Prieta or Nogales are not really much. There is also occaisional cartel activity in the border towns like Cananea and sometimes Nogales. Better destinations would be crossing the border at Lukeville and driving down to Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point) Arizona's Seashore. Plenty going on there. Algodones is only big for dental or Prescriptions.

If I were on a bike I'd head for the Baja and San Felipe

Boompa - Thanks for the reply and for the good info. Several years ago we rented a car in Phoenix and drove to Puerto Penasco to spend a week. We had a great time there just enjoying the "down" time. Lots of wind and rocky beaches in town and lots of remote peach property up the coast a bit from Puerto Penasco. Lots of college kids hanging around town.

Given the situation you describe, I'll look around Sierra Vista just a bit and then head north to check out the area south of Prescott. I think you call it the four "Cs".
