Latest Check-Ins

Inspected vehicle and said that dog needed to be in a crate and the fine was 3300pesos, I apologized and said I would get one. They asked for some cold drinks, I only had a half drunk bottle of water, they let me go with a warning and handshake. Friendly enough.

Report Check-In

Drove in direction to Campeche. We were waived through at 4pm.

Report Check-In

Checked license asked for vehicle registration card nothing too crazy

It is now 500 m more in the south. Just wanted to have a view inside for 10 Sec. without entry. Very friendly. Asked us if we were in Military 😂. We said yes. We could feel the respect vibes. 😉

Report Check-In

We were stopped by a nice police officer who talked to us about where we were from. Didn’t ask for any paperwork, license, or anything. He just straight up asked for money. Asked if we could give him $200 pesos to have dinner tonight. Haha. We of course didn’t and he said we could go.

Report Check-In

Clearly corrupted officers wanted only money. After checking all the documents, they asked us for the print out of car insurance. Baja bound told us that it’s not needed, hence, we had only a soft copy. The police officer asked us to pay 1600 Pesos for not having a print out. We decided to call Baja bound, and immediately the officer told us that it’s all ok. Give them no money for something stupid. They make rules of their own and try to find something just to give penalty.

Report Check-In

They boarded our bus for about 5mins only. Took my dirty period pad out of the trash and left quickly. Lol, for real. Never asked for documents of any sort.

Report Check-In

Stopped on the way out of Campeche. Same as others, the cop asked for my drivers license and proceeded to scold us for our dog not being in a crate. Ultimately let us go, no “tip” asked, possibly because we spoke Spanish. The dog crate is an odd rule, and possibly an excuse to get some money, especially since the stop is right on the border to Tabasco.

Report Check-In

waved througt, nothing happens, but many Staffel and many cars were checked

Report Check-In

just went through today. we were pulled over and he asked for a copy of my husband's driver's license. he then asked us to pull the dogs out of the back of the van, so he could look inside. he just looked in through the sliding door, did not actually enter.

he then asked for our tip, and spent a couple minutes reading it over. he asked a couple times of our van was rented, not sure why he kept asking that but we kept saying no! he then wished us safe travels and sent us along our way.

no suggestions that we pay him $ or any of the other things people have mentioned here.

we have two dogs, but they ride in the back on the bed while we're driving, so maybe that's why he didn't say anything about them needing to be in crates? no questions asked about them at all.

Report Check-In

Checkpoint still active. Quick basic search and driver license check. Friendly, not asking for any money. Not speaking Spanish may have helped…

Report Check-In

Nobody was there today, we passed on easter sunday, so that's maybe explaining why 🤷‍♀️ we were there around 3:30!

Report Check-In

We were ready for this road and we arrived earlier. At 8h AM, the policemen just getting settled ! So they they didn't stop us.

Report Check-In

Similar experience as people before.
They inspected our license and tip and said our dog needs to be in a crate in the state of Campeche (we haven’t verified this information yet, but will look into a crate vs. a tether). They said the law says to have your dog in a crate (and said our dog could go in our fridge ;D) but seemed satisfied that our dog’s tether does not permit him to reach the drivers area. We left without any ticket or them asking for any money.

Report Check-In

they really want to find something to give you a fine. He checked 10minutes the copy of our driver license and car documents to find a reason to give us a fine. when he didn't found something, he said our dog has to be in a transportation Box during driving. He wanted 4000 Peso fine. We said we will follow him to the police station no matter it is far away(like he said). After 30minutes of discussion via Google translate he was getting tired of us and waved us through without paying anything.

Report Check-In

They searched our suv wanted to fine us for our dog being out of the carrier and cannabis (it was just plant residue from a hike on floor mat). They wanted 6000 pesos they searched me and saw I only had 700 pesos. They took that.

Report Check-In

Pulled us over. Checked documents and back of the van. “Give us money and you can go quietly”. We gave them $50 and drove off. One then asked “do we have a euro for his coin collection.” You really could write a Netflix series about this shit. We’ve even been asked by cops “tiene pollo” Good luck there. Stay strong.

Report Check-In

quick stop today. they didn't check any papers, and didn't look into the trailer, but asked for money for food or water. we didn't really understand what exactly they wanted. luckily it was raining and they let us go.

Report Check-In

There were checks today. We were stoped at the checkpoint, the policeman were friendly, asked where we are from and how long we were traveling through Mexico. Made a quick surch trough our vehicle, let us go soon after. Another couple of travelers was also stoped and being surched, seems like they pay attention to Gringos.

Report Check-In

We were stopped today. Asked to look in the container on the back trailer rack and asked for license and registration. All fine.

Report Check-In

The check point was 200m before in Tabasco. They asked where we are from (Palenque) and where we were going (Campeche) and we were fine to go!

Report Check-In

Friendly police men. Needed to stop at the side and asked for my drivers license.
He asked where I was from (Germany) and wanted to know what currency we have in Germany and if I have some with me (I simply said no). He smiled and wished safe travels.

Report Check-In

Checked the drivers license and the registration for the car then let us on our merry way!

Report Check-In

no checking today, some patrols but nobody's stopping anybody. ;) as we like it

Report Check-In

No problems; waved us through watching on their cellphones

Report Check-In

They stopped me and asked me where I was going I said the Yucatan peninsula and then he tried to tell me I was going the wrong way and should turn around so I added that I planned to go to Bacalan first so then he was all right with it. Next asked for identification which they checked against their paperwork and then said I was ok to proceed. It made me very uncomfortable because I haven’t been questioned or detained by police traveling for the past ten months in Oaxaca and Chiapas. The only other times were in Colima and Guerrero where they tried to tell me I had made driving violations and were looking for “tips.” It turned out ok but it gave me a bad feeling about exploring Tabasco.

Report Check-In
