Description

checkpoint looking for drugs. rudest checkpoint yet in 10 months of traveling in Mexico. Searched our vehicle, looking under seats and sniffing leaves from the floor. Made my husband empty his pockets grilling him abotheke how many US dollars we we're carrying. That being said, It didn't take to long.

Report Check-In

We drove this road and no road blocks in any point over the 199. We checked with staff at Pemex and they said that road blocks are not happening at the moment. Lot’s of kids selling and pulling up ropes when we were passing so we would buy from them. Expect lots and lots of horrible topes on this road. Safe travels!

Short Update on the situation on the Route 199:
We drove it yesterday from San Christobal to Agua Azul.
There was only one road Block after about 30km. People looked a bit scary but were overall nice. We had to wait ca. 10minutes in line, paid 100 pesos and got through without any issues.
In the area around Agua Azul we also had (overall 5 times) kids trying to stop our car with tiny ropes in order to sell goods/food. They were quite demanding and knocking on our window as crazy. We just continued slowly and got through without further incidents.
This being said - no issues with driving this Route! However I counted 300+ topes on the way :)
