You have 2 issues. The first issue is whether you PO will let you go because you will need permission to leave the state. Second issue is whether Mexico will let you in. If your PO agrees, then you should contact the US consulate in Mexico to ask if you will be permitted to enter.

Typically there are no travel restrictions on misdemeanor probation.
However, if you have a DUI conviction it makes traveling to certain countries, like Canada difficult.
I would contact an immigration attorney.

That depends on the conditions of your probation and on whether Mexico will admit you. Canada would not ordinarily let you in without a waiver.

I'm adding an Immigration tag to your question to bring it to the attention of lawyers who might know Mexico's policies.

If any answer on AVVO helps you, mine or someone else’s, please mark it as "helpful" or "best answer" to help AVVO know which answers to show others.
Thank you.

However, there are hardly sufficient details for an attorney to provide you with some path to follow. It is imperative that ALL of the facts in a particular situation be examined. No conclusion can be drawn from the communication that you have provided. There are some matters that are just better handled by an attorney familiar with the procedures of the courts in your area. Most, if not all, legal matters should not be handled via internet communication. At best, the responders on this site can give you a few hints and guidance. To deal with a legal problem, nothing is better than to consult with a lawyer who will give you some time and advice. If you cannot afford an attorney, there should be agencies in your area that can provide discounted, or even free, legal services.
