Should you buy Mexican insurance?

I assume that you are driving a vehicle registered in the U.S. or Canada? Never drive in Mexico assuming your United States policy will cover you. Most U.S. and Canadian insurance companies will not cover you while in Mexico. If you are in an accident, you could be held in Mexico until you make restitution with the other party. Mexican insurance can be purchased at the border or can be purchased less expensively online before you leave on your trip. Many online companies allow you to compare policies and print your evidence in just a few minutes. A number of company/premium comparisons can be made at . Make sure to read and understand your policy before you leave.
