Take A Roadtrip To Mexico

Driving to Mexico in your car, RV, motorcycle is a lot safer and easier than you've heard. I've been exploring Mexico by car for 40 years. I plan trips for tourists and new expats. Whether you just want a straight-line route to your new home on the beach or want to explore the wonders of Mexico, I can help you.

You want answers to questions about driving - fuel - RV parks - pet-friendly hotels and the big one - is it safe? As a pet-dad myself, I specialize in making the journey easy for your pets.

Sure, you can get free advice from social media. But you deserve better than that. I've put together factual answers to your questions and suggestions of where to go. I'm here for you. 

One couple who used my services put it succinctly:

With "Mexico" Mike as our partner, we felt safe & enjoyed our trip. He delivered more than promised.

Covid-19 Considerations

Driving offers less exposure to Covid-19 than any flight. Mexico is taking serious steps to limit transmission, including mask requirements, social distancing, hand sanitizer and so on. Be prepared. I'm honor-bound to tell you that the risk of Covid is still real in Mexico, especially when people don't practice social distancing - just as it is in the United States.

Most driving tourists go to one destination and stay put, so you can be as safe as you want. Many of you own property and will self-sequetser. Where do you want to be isolated - in a tropical resort with views of mountains, beaches and colonial architecture? Or staring at brick walls in your city?

It takes more than a Google map ...

To plan your perfect trip. See those mountains? (If you can't, maybe you should fly). There's a 5-star spa hidden in them. Do you want to go that way, or follow the RV trail or fastest route. Mikey knows them all. Got COPD? I've got a better route for you.

What I can do for you.

I can answer any question at at all about driving, destinations, safety, where to go, why to go there. There's not a road I have not driven, a destination I don't know (he said modestly).

Yes, but is it right for you?

While Mazatlan may be perfect, a paradise on earth, for your Autnt Sally, that doesn't mean it's right for you. I can offer alternatives if you like.

Travel Documents

Regardless of your immigation status, you'll need documents for yourself, your pets, your vehicles. These change with time. I'll keep you up-to-date on them.

Adventure Tourism

I'll tell you about some of the many adventure tourism sites in Mexico.

RV Driving Tips

RV tourists are increasing rapidly in Mexico. For the first time in years, there are new RV parks or refurbished parks that had fallen on hard times. I offer some RV driving tips, RV park reviews and a directory.
