Mexico-Roads and Driving

The quality of the roads in Mexico are much lower than found in the United States or Canada. Many roads have large potholes, washouts, or fallen debris blocking part of the road. Never assume any of these things will be blocked off or well marked. Many drivers on the road will be driving at dangerous speeds, consider driving slower than other traffic.  Read more about roads and driving in Mexico.

Mexico-Border Crossing Information

While many people may know Mexico best for its beach destinations of Cabo San Lucas, Cozumel, or Cancun, it has much more to offer. Gorgeous beaches in Baja California and the Pacific coast, the spectacular canyons of Barranca del Cobre, the reawakening ghost town of Real de Catorce in the Northern Central Highlands, thriving colonial era cities like Zacatecas, San Miguel Allende, ruins from Monte Alban, Palenque, Yaxchilan, and Tulum, culture and arts in Oaxaca and San Cristobal de la Casas, you could spend months traveling Mexico and leave knowing there's still much more to see.  Read more about border crossing here.
