APO. - Aug 2015

We are able to send everything through the consulate. The consultate drives the mail up to Nogales twice a week. - Apr 2013

Mexican post is unreliable and slow. Services such as UPS, DHL and FedEx are available and recommended unless you have access to diplomatic pouch services. - Dec 2009

The Mexican mail system is reliable in that you can get everything that is sent but it is very, very slow (everything takes at least two weeks). Fedex, UPS, Estafeta, and DHL are all available and offer service to desitnations worldwide. Also, if you don't mind making a little bit of a trip once a month or so, you can get a PO box in Nogales, Arizona (about a three hour drive north) or Tucson, Arizona, and make a monthly shopping, entertainment, and mail run. - Feb 2008
