If you are driving to the Valle de Guadalupe, you will need a Mexico insurance policy issued by a Mexican insurance company. Mexico does not recognize foreign insurance. Even though a US policy might cover physical damage within a 25 mile radius from the border, you would not have liability coverage in case you are at fault in an accident. We recommend purchasing insurance online through Sanborn’s Insurance before traveling. Having the right Mexico insurance coverage is important and will help having the peace of mind needed to have a great experience while enjoying Valle de Guadalupe. 

Please do not drink and drive.
