Is it no longer the case that FMMs are required if [per Bajabound link above]

The visit is outside the limits of the border zone or tourist corridors established by the Mexican government. The border zone varies slightly from one Mexican border state to another, but is an area south of the U.S. border down approximately 20 to 30 kilometers (12.4 to 18.6 miles) into Mexico.

All of the other info I've read, including in the Moon Baja guidebook, indicates that you're technically supposed to have a FMM if you're in-country for more than 72 hours and/or if you're heading south of Maneadero, which is just south of Ensenada. Have the rules changed and does the "border zone" encompass all of BC now?

Anyway, this is a great thread for us Baja n00bs. I'm sorta thinking of heading down there for a week or 2 in October on my Wee with Anakee IIs on, which I think should get me from Puertecitos down through Coco's at least... though I'm not sure I like the looks of that deep sand pictured upthread.
