There is insurance available in Mexico on most all types of risks. The most common is on building structures, content in the structures and automobiles. Prior experience has shown me that it is common to see that the insurance companies delay in making payouts. They just don't like to give up the money. If they can find a just cause to withhold, they commonly will. One such reason to withhold is that the item insured was not properly imported into Mexico. The reputation of the insurance agent as well as the insurance company are very important.
Insurance is normally a good idea on automobiles and other vehicles that travel the roads of the country. Why? The authorities in Mexico will very likely treat an accident as a criminal affair (for sure when some one gets hurt). If there is insurance covering the costs, then they are more likely not to take you the police station or jail.
