A few weeks ago I had to travel inland in Mexico from Puerto Vallarta to a small town in Zacatecas. The 600 km road trip requires about 6 hours worth of driving, and instead of taking the highway (which frankly should not be classified as such) we took an alternate path along a main road we are familiar with, is toll free, and only takes about 20 minutes more. This time I decided to bring my compact camera and took random snapshots of what the trip was like- here are the results. My take? You better keep your eyes on the road all the time, watch out for the speed bumps ( I can easily say that Mexico has more speed bumps than any other country in the world- and I’ve visited quite a few), make sure you have a phone with a Mexican SIM card that works but keep an eye out the window cause you’ll see extraordinary things. And if you want your trip to make sense, here’s a perfect Mexico itinerary for your trip.
Have you travelled in Mexico? Did you drive? What situations did you find yourself in, or what anecdote can you share with us? What would you have liked to find more of on the roads? And less? Please comment below, and share this post if you liked it!
