If you are still under probation, you must comply with all the terms of your probation. Reporting to a probation officer may be satisfied, but the other conditions of probation would continue. Read your conditions of probation very carefully. Standard provisions usually are you do not go into a bar or tavern or places that serve alcohol, leave the State (which would include a trip to Mexico). The good news is I have found most probation offices are pretty good to work with regarding out of State travel, particularly for lower level crimes. Contact your probation officer, explain the trip to them and if you conditions of probation need to be amended to allow your trip ask that they please do so in writing and send a confirmation that the Court will amend the condition.

Although you are planning on being there for such a short time, I would still suggest that you file a motion asking the court to grant its permission to travel for those three days out of the country. I am quite certain you will be granted leave to go, and you will have peace of mind knowing the court authorized it. See the Clerk of Court's office to file your motion.

To answer your question I must assume that you signed your "rules of probation" at some point early on in your probation. If you signed a typical rule of probation agreement then there is very likely to be a rule that prohibits you from traveling outside of the State of Wisconsin without receiving permission from your Agent. Even though you may not have to report as part of your probation, you still have an agent, or office that is responsible for supervising you. If you leave WI and they find out, you could be subject to revocation or sanctions, including jail. You really need to check your rules of probation, and follow them. Three days of fun in Mexico might not be worth the risk of several months in jail in Wisconsin.
