My wife and I will be driving from austin to oaxaca next week. Does anyone know if you can get both a vehicle permit and a tourist visa at the consulate in Dallas? Can you convert dollars to pesos at the consulate; or is there a bank close that you can do this? Also any ideas about which border crossing is the quickest and places to stay along the way (with secured parking). We plan on stopping in Monterrey, San Luis Potosi and Mexico City before arriving in Oaxaco. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Is it always necessary to bring everything in out of your car trunk each night?
