Tours of Mexico take you to thriving cities, ancient ruins, glorious white sandy beaches and luxurious resorts. This central American country is a hotspot for culture, as well as stunning natural landscapes and delicious cuisine.

Mexico’s closest neighbour, the USA, is full of cosmopolitan cities and small town charm which is perfectly paired with a self drive motorbike tour of Mexico. Book the EagleRider Baja California South Bound Guided Motorcycle Tour and enjoy the thrill of the open road, feeling the power of the motorcycle on the road, and the comfort of a carefully planned itinerary. Begin in the glamorous city of Los Angeles, heading down America’s west coast to Ensenada in Baja California. Enjoy a delicious dinner as you watch the sun set over Ensenada Bay. Head into the Vizcaino Desert, see volcanic cones, desert oases and historic towns.
Climb the Sierra de la Giganta Mountains and take in the views of the surrounding desert and Pacific Ocean before enjoying the relaxed atmosphere of the fishing town of Los Barilles. Try Watersports including snorkelling and kayaking or simply relax on the golden sands of the beach. In Land’s End you can absorb the quiet atmosphere and sea cliffs before heading to Cabo San Lucas. Here you can relax into holiday mode, lie back on the sands and enjoy the luxury oceanfront hotels.

“My tip for enjoying Mexico to the fullest is to just let go of any inhibitions and embrace the culture. And try speaking a few words of the local language, in this case, Spanish.”
“Have some fun shopping – and haggling – for souvenirs in Cancun’s long-running flea market, Mercado 28. Shop around and you’ll find some real treasures.”
“In Mexico City, the best way to get around is the metro. But if you miss the last train, hail one of the government licensed pink and white taxis with CDMX on the side.”
Frequently Asked Questions
When’s the best time to visit Mexico?
Because Mexico is such a large country, the weather does vary a little, but generally the best time to visit is between December and April when there is virtually no rain. December to February are the coolest months, and the wet season lasts from May through to October.
Can I drink the tap water in Mexico?
Generally speaking, it’s not a good idea to drink the tap water in Mexico. Try to avoid drinks with ice in them, as well, and any fruits, vegetables or salads that have been washed in tap water. Stick to bottled water, and don’t forget that includes brushing your teeth.
What should I pack for Mexico?
Insect repellent is a must, as are comfortable shoes for walking around tourist sites, breathable clothes for when it’s hot and humid, and warm layers if you’re planning to head up into the highlands.
Thoughts of Mexico conjure up images of brightly coloured, vibrant cities, thick green jungles concealing ancient wonders, spicy food that will set your mouth on fire, and white sandy beaches leading down to crystal clear seas. Prepare for Mexico to live up to all your greatest expectations.
