Take A Roadtrip To Mexico

You want to drive your car, RV, motorcycle to Mexico, but aren't sure if it is a good idea. You want straight answers to questions about driving - fuel - RV parks - pet-friendly hotels and the big one - is it safe?

You're here because "Mexico" Mike has a respected reputation and you want to get some perspective. You've gotten conflicting, disorganized advice from social media. I'll bring it all together and help you make an intelligent decision. "Mexico" Mike has spent four decades advising people just like you about driving trips to Mexico and how to enjoy them.

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.

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