This comprehensive Red Dead Redemption 2 mod lets players explore Mexico thanks to a number of different expansions developed by players who want to see the original game reimagined in the newest version of the RAGE engine.
While Nuevo Paraíso is part of the world of Red Dead Redemption 2, it's only accessible through exploits. It's unfortunate as there is a lot of the region in the game and it looks like Rockstar Games had to abandon it in favour of the other environments. Nevertheless, players have worked tirelessly in the map editor to bring the locations from the second game to life in Arthur Morgan's story.
This mod essentially collects all of the Mexico custom content off Nexus Mods and puts them together for players to download in one fell swoop. These include Escalera, Chuparosa, Casa Madrugada, El Matadero and more. There's even a scattering of camps that have been created to let the player rest their character and top off their tanks.

The reason why Arthur cannot enter Nuevo Paraíso is that Mexico is much too dangerous due to the rising threat of revolutionaries and a dispute between itself and the United States. Still, the region has weather, vegetation, textures, ambient audio and even its own theme so you won't be trekking through with no one but your bronco for company.
Though, if I were the creators of these mods, I'd keep a weather eye out for emails sent from Take-Two Interactive. The GTA Underground, Vice City Stories: PC Edition, Liberty City Stories: PC Edition and San Andreas Reimagined mods were removed from the Internet after Rockstar Games' parent company issued a DMCA notice against the modders' projects.
Why? Well, according to the CEO, these remakes were indicative of a threat to the publisher's economy and "bad behaviour". With rumours rumbling about a possible remake of Red Dead Redemption after the Grand Theft Auto trilogy remasters are released, we could be returning to Mexico in a more official capacity. Watch this space, I suppose.
