Later this year (probably early December) my wife and I will be moving from San Francisco to Merida in Yucatan, Mexico.
We will be driving our 2008 Subaru Outback and it will be full of stuff and want to go the quickest/safest route taking toll roads whenever possible. I'm guessing the best route to begin would be to drive I-5 south and then take I-10 towards Texas but not sure where would be the best place to do the border crossing and which route to take through Mexico.
We will, of course, only be driving during the day and hope to find hotels where the car will be secure at night. I've driven extensively in Central America and some in Mexico so am used to bad roads and crazy drivers. We speak enough Spanish to get by.
Thanks in advance for any info
