Drive Mexico

Planning for your road trip to Mexico is key to a successful trip. Whether it is a family vacation, an adventure with friends, a business trip or rediscovering your roots, being prepared for the hours you will be spending on the road is important and will ensure that you have a safe and memorable trip.

First and foremost, make sure your car is in good working condition. Examine your tires, wiper blades, turn signals, brake lights, high and low beams to make sure they all work. Visit your mechanic and change the oil and filters and make sure that the belts and fluids levels are checked.

Gather the documentation needed to obtain the Mexican tourist cards, your Sanborn’s Mexico Insurance coverage and your vehicle importation permit.

Cell Phones
If you are planning to take a cell phone with you, make sure you have the international service activated. As in the U.S. and Canada, it is against the law to talk on your cell phone while driving in Mexico. To avoid any problems, make sure you take a hands free device with you. Do not text! Avoid fines. Using a cell phone while driving increases your risk of being involved in a collision.

Share Responsibilities
Designate jobs to all traveling with you: co-pilot/navigator, road logger, driver (make sure they have a valid driver’s license and you are with them in the car), cleaning duties, and most important DJ! This will prevent you from any distractions during the course of your drive.

Let Sanborn’s Travelogs drive Mexico with you, and have your co-pilot help with the road logger duties by reading the road log to you and adding any interesting notes of your trip. When Sanborn’s editors researched the information we offer to you, we discovered many wonderful places in Mexico. We know you will discover additional landmarks, restaurants, and places of interest to you. Please share them with us; let us know what you discover on your trip, and we’ll be sure to send you a Thank You gift.

Driving Tips
Plan to cross the border in the early hours of the day, especially if you have a long stretch to drive. Limit your driving hours to day light; avoid driving at night. Use toll roads as much as possible. In the last decade, the Mexican government has improved their toll road-highway system with modern roads comparable to those in the U.S. and Canada. These will help you avoid commercial traffic. In addition, you will benefit from special services offered when driving toll roads, like medical emergency service, located in every toll booth crossing, radio communication service, and police monitoring to secure the roads. Read our complete list of driving tips for Mexico.

Drive Mexico with your favorite tunes. Mexico has great radio stations, and in major Mexican cities, you might find a radio station in English. However, while on the road, you might loose the signal, and will have to wait for the next best signal. Designate DJ duties to your co-pilot or someone else in the car. Be prepared with an auxiliary connection for an MP3 or IPOD or your favorite CDs that can prepared ahead of time.

Get everyone involved; buckle your seatbelt, and enjoy the freedom of the road!
