A new mod for Red Dead Redemption 2 lets you experience Mexico by recreating the Nuevo Paraíso region from the first game in the sequel. Currently, the mod is in early access and the developers are completely remaking towns to resemble Mexico from the prequel. Still a work in progress, this mod is still heavily unfinished as per its description on NexusMods. Hence, we’ll have to wait a bit to try out its finished version.

YouTuber Noru 122 uploaded a video of this Red Dead Redemption mod in action, showcasing how different Nuevo Paraíso looks in the remade map. As you can see in the video the mod recreates the towns of Chuparosa, Escalera, the fortress of El Presidio, and the Las Hermanas nunnery from Red Dead Redemption 1 in the sequel.

Furthermore, the settlements of El Matadero, Torquemada, and Casa Madrugada are also shown in the video, with the latter being the only part of the Red Dead Redemption mod that is 100% complete. The rest of this mod is still under construction and the NexusMod page doesn’t give any official release date for it.
