Driving Tips

Mexico is a huge country that offers fantastic opportunities for travel by car. A car rental in Mexico can extend your possibilities to ancient sites, secluded beaches and jaw dropping mountain ranges. To get to your destination in Mexico we recommend planning your route carefully and sticking to major roadways. Even if it means a longer drive the conditions of the road will improve the speed and safety of your journey. The modern toll roads may come at a price, but they are well maintained and operate all across the country. Typically they will cost between 25 to 150 Mexican pesos and it is smart to have enough pesos on hand to pay for them as generally U. dollars and credit cards are not accepted.

Here are our tips for driving in Mexico:

  • Speed limits are posted in km/h and it is advised to always drive slightly below the posted speed rather than slightly over, as common in the US.
  • Look out for 'Topes', Mexican speed bumps. These are frequent when entering or leaving small towns and sometimes not well signposted.
  • On some steep and narrow roads, uphill traffic has right of way. If you are coming downhill, pull over where possible to let the oncoming traffic pass.
  • Making longer journeys by night is not recommended.

Top 4 Architectural Sights

  • Museo Soumaya, Mexico City
  • Palenque, Chiapas
  • Las Pozas, Xilitla, San Luis Potosí

The Museo Soumaya is the most visited art museum in Mexico housed in two buildings, the Plaza Loreto and Plaza Carso. The Plaza Carso is the most impressive with its skewed cube, clad in aluminum tiles and housing the main collection. The ancient Mayan city of Palenque in Chiapas was overgrown and covered in jungle. One square mile of the sites has been excavated and features stunning examples of Mayan architecture and sculpture. In the mountains 7 hours' drive north of Mexico City is the surrealist paradise of Las Pozas, Xilitla in San Luis Potosí. The site is over 80 acres (32 ha) of surrealist towers and sculptures that weave between rainforest and waterfalls, built by Edward James between 1949 and 1984. The opulent Church of Santa Prisca was built in the 1700s and is the only piece of baroque architecture in the Southern state of Guerrero.

Top 4 Natural Sights

  • El Arco, Cabo San Lucas
  • Cenote Ik-Kil, Yucatán
  • Popocatépetl Volcano, Puebla
  • El Tule, Valle de Tlacolula, Oaxaca

Vines cascade down the sides of the cenote and the pool is open to the public for swimming. Keep your distance when marveling the Popocatépetl Volcano in Puebla, it is the most active volcano in Mexico. Because of its enormity, it can sometimes be seen 43 miles south in Mexico City. El Tule is the largest tree in the world and has the largest trunk in the world with a circumference of 42m. It is located in church grounds near in Santa Maria del Tule in Oaxaca.

What to Do in Mexico in Winter 2020

You can enjoy mild winter weather in Mexico to escape the cold. Temperatures in winter are, on average, between 68 and 74 degrees, but if you are going somewhere at a higher altitude like Mexico City it will be colder. There are many festivals and celebrations in Mexico in December leading up to El Dia de Reyes (On the Day of Kings) that is in the first week of January. You can also take part in the Fiesta Grande in Chiapas state, or various Carnival celebrations that mark the beginning of Lent, or the 46 days leading up to Easter. Whale watching at Los Cabos and seeing the Monarch butterflies wintering in reserves in Michoacan are recommended. Looking for some winter sun? Cancun, Cabo San Lucas, Acapulco and Cozumel are great winter beach destinations.
