Hmm....Focaljet group trip to Mexico anyone?
Note to self: Save vacation time next year for trip to Mexico weekend of March 12-14. Except Mapquest comes up with four different Leon's in Mexico. Which one is it?

That's what I can't understand. This season has been one of the most competative in years and they're screwing with it. With the two car rule it means that only 14 top level cars will be starting every rally and with the attrition rate of rallies like Cyprus or Acropolis that will be some sad race results.

Ok! who's in for group rates down in Mexico?????


YES! Finally a WRC event close to home! How far are the events from Cancun?
Cancun is ~23 hour drive to Leon. You would be better to fly into Monterrey, Gaudalajara, or Mexico City.

San Diego is 28 hours from Leon. If you want to fly into a US city, either Brownsville (12 horus), Corpus Christi (15hours, where I live, a coworker and I are driving down), or San Antionio (15 hours) are good choices.

If you want to fly into Mexico, you should just fly into Leon (airport is BJX). I think most of you think Leon is a small village or something. Leon is a huge city, (well, by my standards) with a population of more than 1 million.

Ahhh Much better, Thanx!

Hmm Leon is close to a few other nice places. Might be a nice lil mini vacation. Anybody here been to Leon before?
I've been by there, but not stopped. Maybe it's improved, but several years ago the roads in that part of the country were miserable (good for rally) and sight seeing ran the risk of seeing sights that didn't want to be seen (zapatista camps and opium/mota fields) and live by the credo "dead men tell no tales". I'd probably fly into Leon for the rally and then take a shuttle to wherever else I'd want to vacation.

My Step-father is a travel agent, I will tell him to keep an eye out for the fares to Leon, Mexico and see when they go down for various cities around the country and repost, I will also have him search hotel rooms and rates, and start reserving a block of 20 rooms at a decent rate (as long as they have a 24-cancelation policy) just in case they start to go quickly.
