    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    You should be able to get to Vegas in two full days, but you really need to rethink your plan a bit. SA to Tucson is nearly 900 miles. That's a brutal day on the road that's really not going to leave you in any shape to drive another 400 miles the next day (and that's not even factoring whatever you are planning to drive getting to SA). It will make much more sense and be much more safe to stop in Deming or Las Cruces New Mexico, which will make for two manageably long (12 hour) days on the road. Both cities should have no shortage of roadside motels to chose from.

    As far as places to eat on the road, the best advice is to ask the locals and find out where they eat. There are thousands of restaurants along a route of this distance, and when you factor in how frequently even "must stop" restaurants close or change ownership, we just don't have any way on a relatively small forum such as this to give you good accurate, first hand advice about specific places to eat.

    I certainly hope you are going to take 2 days to get from Mexico City to San Antonio - that's also about 900 miles.

    Default First Day is Also a Doozy

    As Michael pointed out 900 mile drives are simply unsafe. I would note that your first day also clocks in at an unsustainable 860 miles plus a border crossing that could easily add a couple of hours to your trip. You need to schedule a minimum of 4 days for your drive from Mexico City to Las Vegas. Trying to do it in 2˝ is nothing short of suicidal.

    Default Arsenic or Cyanide?

    Which is more convenient? The fact is that you are asking for advice on how to drive 2200 miles in three days. On top of that you are going to have to spend up to several hours crossing the border. Until you are willing to realize that all you are asking for is advice on how to best commit suicide and/or manslaughter, I'm afraid we can't help you.

    If all you want to do is get from Mexico City to Las Vegas, cross the border at Juarez/El Paso. This is an 1840 mile drive and you need at LEAST 4 days.

    Default This has Become Pointless

    Literally every response you've gotten to date has said that 700 miles is too much to drive in one day and yet you just keep asking the same question over and over again. No, it is neither safe nor sane to try to drive from Ciudad Juârez to Las Vegas in one day. Now, so we don't waste any more time answering that same question a dozen more times, I'm going to give you a one week time-out so that maybe the answer will eventually sink in.
