Adventure Editorial Inspiration Lifestyle
Our local experts will tell you how to travel in Mexico, what transport to use and what to take with you.

For short distances it is advisable to take the so-called "colectivos". Firstly, it is cheap, and secondly, it is a good opportunity to get to know the local people. Longer distances are best covered by coaches with higher standards. If you are going to Mexico on a "road trip", it is best to travel further at night. Buses are very comfortable, and you save a lot of time and money on accommodation. Women, especially blondes, are exposed to a massive attack of Mexican adonis.

Underground for men and women - tips
The metro has a selection rule in the carriages. There are separate carriages for women and men. I recommend that women follow this rule, especially during rush hour. It is advisable to take a torch with you on your trip to Mexico. In many small towns and villages the roads are not illuminated and it gets dark just after sunset.

Climate in Mexico
You should also check the temperature in your destination and take appropriate clothing. Although Mexico is associated with sunshine and beautiful weather, in popular destinations such as San Cristobal de las Casas the temperature can drop to 0°C at night.
