Mazatlan, Mexico Clubs & Organizations for Expats

Whether you’re an expat or a native, there are seven Association’s Mexicana Automovillistica throughout Mexico.
I had originally thought there were no auto clubs in Mexico that sort of correspond to our AAA, American Automobile Association – but I was wrong. I have their contact phone numbers as an addition in my book Retire In Luxury.
You will find most of the meetings have a listing in the local newspaper – Pacific Pearl.
