Our 2014-15 Mexico Trip Blog in Chronological Order

After Xpu-Ha our plan is to drive back to the USA border which usually takes 3-4 days. Others are recommending the center route through Laredo instead. We must decide on whether to take the fast Eastern route home or the mountain route to Puebla which is 100 extra miles of driving and $100 more dollars in tolls.
With Plan A we spend
1 night near Villahermosa
1 night near Cerro Azul
1 day north through Tampico to Los Indios, camp at Harlingen Wal-Mart

Last year we went with plan A 2014 Blog - Plan A

For center route through Laredo, See Center Trip Plan B for maps & time/mileage charts.
With Plan B
1 night near Villahermosa
1 night near San Juan del Rio after Arco Norte Bypass
1 night near Laredo using Cuota route through Satillo to Laredo

Cross the border, stop in TX
