Things To Know When Traveling In Mexico
Mexico is a beautiful country with diverse mountain ranges and shorelines! Among this beautiful country are more than 20 beach destinations offering sport fishing, surfing, wind surfing, kite boarding, kayaking and more! Meso-American ruins, nature reserves and colonial cities in Mexico rich in history and architecture.
Consistently temperate weather keeps people from all over the globe visiting nearly year round but peak season is December through May. However, even in low season (June through October), there is plenty to do and see if you don’t mind a little rain. The rains are warm so as long as don’t mind getting wet, you can still do most everything you like without the sunburn!
With over 100 major national or international airports in Mexico, flying to Mexico is sometimes a better alternative to ground transportation as it can take days to travel by car or bus from one destination to the next.
However, if you are the type of person who finds the journey as exciting as the vacation destination in Mexico, many magical, unexpected treasures will be found!
Mexico’s Infrastructure Is Improving
Mexico has been investing heavily in their road infrastructure and driving in Mexico is better today than ever. The roads that are maintained the best are the toll roads. Although the toll roads are rather expensive to travel on, they are much more reliable in quality, speed and safety than the non-toll roads.
Non toll roads can have hazards such as dim or non-existent lighting, large pot holes that are bad enough to wreck your suspension and poorly marked topes (pronounced toe-pay).
Mexican topes are large speed bumps intended to slow down drivers upon entering or exiting a town. If a tope is in need of a paint job, they are very difficult to see during daylight and nighttime hours and can render your car air borne. Be alert!
Mexico has implemented a great bus system that includes more than 200 different bus companies operating from over 150 bus stations nation-wide. The days of “chicken buses” are essentially gone and modern, roomy, air-conditioned buses are now the norm. In fact, they are so air-conditioned that you should bring a sweater or blanket on the bus with you! A lot of American’s are of the opinion that ADO rivals Greyhound or National Express!
The combination of Mexico’s improved road network and bus lines have created an extensive network of travel routes allowing tourists to traverse the entire country by vehicle.
