Renewing your car permit in Mexico

Last weekend we travelled to Chetumal and the Belize border because it was time for us to renew our vehicle permit. We have foreign plates so we need to renew our permit once a year - it is tied to our FM3. The question may be; why did we have to travel three and a half hours away from our home in Playa del Carmen? The answer would be; because they closed all of the other offices who renewed vehicle permits in the whole state of Quintana Roo! Only in Mexico you say? Maybe.

I thought this adventure would give me lots to write about - after all anything involving paperwork in Mexico can usually be reason to keep a sense of humor....... but this was not the case. I am happy to report we were in and out with our new permit in hand within 15 minutes! The staff at this border office were very friendly and efficient. Only in Mexico you say? Maybe.

Enjoy the Adventure! Suzanne
