I noticed that the mexican motorcycle insurance thru mexadventure includes air ambulance coverage, among other things. Probably wouldn't be as good as Medjet coverage. Heard of anyone using this coverage through mexadventure?

I went back over to Los Muertos Microbrewery in PV this afternoon to give it another try. The three brews they had today were a IPA, an amber ale, and a golden ale. I'm not a fan of IPA., so I sampled the other two; UGH ! I opted instead for a Pacifico. I ordered some wings and fries. The wings were pretty good and the fries were undercooked. I plan to give them one more try, but it won't be until next year. I'm not sure if they will still be there. I guess it will depend on how well capitalized they are.
I think I'll open a bottle of Cabernet now as Mrs. Ace is thirsty.

Did you give the above feedback to the management of Los Muertos?

Uh oh.

They shouldn't be screwing up an amber ale or a golden ale. Those aren't complicated brews.

Microbreweries are notorious for going out of business. And I'd hate to be a restauranteur- and depend on the tourist trade.

Well, maybe Los Muertos is the appropriate name for this joint

Oneeye, read the info carefully. Mexadventure, like most of the US firms re-selling the Mexican carriers products have a bunch of different companies they represent and a bunch of different coverages from just liability up to full coverages. The deductibles are usually high on theft and total loss with low maximum payouts. The med-evac stuff is additional and not included in most policies. It gets confusing. Don't be shy about calling the company, that's what they are there for.

As far as how well the Mexican carriers deliver in an accident and how much help the US broker provides, I can say happily that I have never had a reason to find out.

Good luck digging through the fine print

You can Chris at Mexadventure to confirm, but I think the optional "med ambulance" service provided thru Mexadventure policies is for within Mexico only and not international. That may be a deal breaker for you. Also if your visa or TVIP is questionable, then forget collecting anything.

To answer your specific question, no, I have not heard of any story of a rider using medevac coverage through Mexadventure (or any other insurance underwriter for Mexico for that matter). Not saying it hasn't been done. I would bet that it has.

Recommendation: Call the company and speak with Chris. He'll tell you the straight scoop on if/when/how many times that trigger has been pulled. I doubt he can give you specifics on the riders though, for privacy reasons.

For a general overview of my own philosophy on this subject, which has been posted in the IMS thread several times, go see Post #2, Appendix A to this thread.

Puerto Penasco

What's Puerto Penasco like? Are there good places to stay? Thinking about taking the 950 down there some time.

PP is okay , plenty of hotels to pick from . Don't be disappointed
though , the place could in the past be considered as a seaside
suburb of Tucson and Phoenix as most of its businesses depended
heavily on vacationers and weekenders from Arizona. Beaches are
in short supply in AZ. The Mexican highway there was built to same
standard as the AZ highway that feeds it .

Yes I did. They didn't seem real concerned.

Tourist trade is weak here now, especially with Americans. There do seem to be plenty of Canadians though. A cigar shop owner I know said his business is down about 60%.

Yes, he's been out of Clinton-Lewinskies for several years now
