How exactly is that answer helpful to the OP?
Must be pretty boring in Hong Kong, as a person has to put in real effort to come up with your reply there.Hello there
Well, she want to drive from U.S to mexico,
and she want to know the safest route she can have,
First, I suggested her to get a map to have an over view of the possible road ways she can take,
second is I suggested her to get a lawyer to help her choose the way,
Because, there's always a safe way to drive from US to mexico,
being safe is not the real problem, the real problem is the boundaries,
she asked for the safe way so I assumed that she doesnt know the roads well,
but a lawyer is good at law, so its a great advantage for her to get one,
and ask if its okay to pass that way, she might pass in a property without knowing that its illegal to pass there, hhhhmmm.
Ignorance of the law excuses no one.
I'm afraid she might get into a violation, without planning what way shes going to take.
The responses to this inquiry have been interesting. First, understand that I have never driven into Belize - only as far south as Xcalak, Quintana Roo just above the área of Belize known as Ambergris Cay. I have heard many cautionary tales about driving through Belize but I don´t know if those tales are reliable. I would exercise serious caution there but also in many parts of Mexico and, if I were you, while driving through Mexico these days I would remain on major toll roads at all times if possible and you can do that from the U.S. to Belize. The toll roads in Mexico are normally excellent but will not assure your safety but they will be much safer than back country roads.Hi I am a solo female traveler looking to drive my car from the U.S. through Mexico, I have found conflicting info for safest route. Any advice would be helpful, I am willing to drive any route as long as it's the safest. Thanks
Wow, that added info tells us you're embarking on a trip of a lifetime. "Idaho to Argentina" might itself be the title of a book on your adventure, taking off from an all-American state and journeying through all of Latin America to wind up in what was once a super cosmopolitan country.I am not sure where I am crossing yet, I am driving from Idaho so I can either go towards Cali or Texas. I am more concerned with safety since I will be traveling alone and I am a 29 yr old woman. I am in the begining phase of planning, but my trip will end in Argentina.
I lived in California for more than half my life. I suggest you don´t call it Cali when there. The locals will laugh at you. It is a well know fact that people who use this abbreviation have never visited there.I am not sure where I am crossing yet, I am driving from Idaho so I can either go towards Cali or Texas.

Let us know when you start and what the blog is. I recently watched that movie on netflix of the Aussie woman who trekked alone across her country's great desert back in 1977, and was super impressed. Preparation is everything, and it looks as if you have that in hand.I plan on trying to finish the trip under 8 months, although, I am giving my self some flexibility. I plan to blog about my trip and hopefully a happy ending, coming out of it alive and mostly unscathed :blush:. I do know about the Darien Gap and I will have to arrange the shipment of my car but it seems like people are able to manage even though it is a hassle. I am considering driving through Baja and cutting over into Southern Mexico since there seems to be so many warnings for the North, but more advice the better.
I drive a lot in Mexico, almost 10,000 miles in the last 6 weeks.Hi I am a solo female traveler looking to drive my car from the U.S. through Mexico, I have found conflicting info for safest route. Any advice would be helpful, I am willing to drive any route as long as it's the safest. Thanks
Good point Alan. I lived in California for some 40 years from L.A. to San Diego to a number of places in the Central Valley(s) to Eureka to San Francisco to the Sonoma and Napa Valleys to the coast at the mouth of the Russian River at Jenner and not once during all that time have I heard even one person use the Word "Cali". Now, the Word "craphole" once in a while, yes.
