We would love to go for 2weeks. howvever is it safe?
April 1 is a good time if others are interested. the Caravan in the blue beret seems to be very pricey for Mexico.

Lots of good information here.
I live on the mainland side at San Carlos. almost directly across the Sea of Cortez from Santa Rosalia and Mulege and have logged many miles in Mexico in my Airstream and other R.V.'s
I have only a couple of footnotes to add.
The comercial caravans stop in March. If you are planning a trip in April or May, you are on your own.
If you live in the east or midwest, a travel alternative is as follows: cross the border at Nogales and take the ferry from Guymas to Santa Rosalia or from Topolobampo (Los Mochis) to La Paz. There is also a ferry from Mazatlan to La Paz. The ferries are pricey but compare to the costs and time with driving all the way to Tecate or Tijuana and down the Baja. Plus you get a sea cruise and a little adventure out of the deal.
Google Baja Ferries for more information.
The West Coast of Mexico is worthy in its own right. There are two good RV parks in San Carlos and one in Guymas. There are numerous r.v. parks in Mazatlan. Highway 15 down to Mazatlan is one of the best in Mexico, 4 lane all the way.
Glad to hear real information rather than B.S. about safety. I am tired of Mexico threads being hijacked by people who have never been there spreading tall tales.

Glad to see so much good info here. We've been going to Mexico for almost 40 years now. As far as safety, in all that time the only crime we encountered was somebody broke into our sailboat and stole the marine radio. This was in San Carlos and could easily have been a gringo. The border towns have always been questionable but once in the interior the people are friendly and accommodating.
