I can't speak to taking an RV through Mexico and beyond, BUT I can talk to boat safety in Mexico. We departed the San Francisco Bay in 04 and cruised through Mexico (West Coast & Sea of Cortez) until late 08 & then a bit more part time.
IN ALL THAT TIME, we both felt safer in Mexico than in the USA!!!! The ONLY time we even locked the boat was if we were going to be away over night or for more than a few days. The people we met were wonderful!
I could rant on this for hours, but you get the idea.
This is our real world experience, NOT what you see on the US media crap.
