That's why Comitan, being close to the border, is very attractive to me. Quick border runs to renew my tourist card. What I'm thinking of doing however, since I'll be living in a RV for awhile, is make a little circuit between Oaxaca, San Cristobal, and Catemaco as they have the 3 best RV parks in southern Mexico, at least outside of the Yucatan. Social Security will eventually open up many choices, but that's 12 years from now, so looking for great and yet very affordable places for now.
