Well as the title of my post suggests both my fiancé and I are looking to ride our Africa Twins from Laredo TX using the Columbia bridge crossing and enter into Mexico probably around November 15th weather dependent then travel down to the Yucatan Peninsula ultimately terminating the trip somewhere around Tulum MX. We plan to spend the majority of the trip exploring around the Yucatan peninsula itself trying to hit some of the less touristy destinations of the lesser known centoes, maya ruins, haciendas, etc. traveling on as many sac behs and back roads as possible to get a true local experience vs the typical tour bus stops that pour in from the Cancun area and seaports. The general route we have planned based on recent research we have done as well as some feedback from other riders is to take RT 2 to RT 85 from the Columbia crossing down to Monterrey, stay the night in Monterrey and move down to San Luis Potosi the next day taking RT 57. We are going to be trying to stay on toll roads for safety and efficiency for the first part of the trip to put some distance between us and the border and really start exploring central Mexico around SLP. Some places we have seen others suggest in ride reports on this forum and others would be towns such as Real de Catorce, as well as sites like Tamul waterfall, Teotihuacan, etc. We would ideally be continuing down to the Yucatan continuing on through the states of Puebla, Oaxaca, Chiapas, Tabasco, Campeche, Yucatan, and ending in Quintana Roo. We have roughly 5-6 weeks that we can stay south of the border and have to return back to our truck we are leaving in storage in TX by the first of the year to start heading back to frigid Pennsylvania. Just to give some background we are both fairly experienced riders, having ridden about 10k miles on our first big cross country dual sport trip back in 2016 doing what was then the Trans Eastern Trail down to TAT and back across the south and up the blue ridge. Then riding 1500 miles in Guatemala in 2017 with a fellow rider we met on our first TAT trip. We spent 6 weeks riding all around Arizona and Southern CA following the BDR's and AZ Peace trail back in 2018 and last year spent 8 weeks in the winter riding big bend and all of Baja down and back. Hablamos un poco de Español but we did manage to survive a month in Guatemala even in the very remote mountain regions and all of the remote Jungle of Peten as well as the whole Baja Peninsula so we are at least at what I would consider survival level Spanish at this point but not conversational. We loved our experience in Baja and really enjoyed the Mexican people and met several nationals who were riding there from Mainland who said we had to see the rest of the country. Unfortunately the current level of safety in each province of Mexico seems to be volatile under normal circumstances then when taking into account the entire scope of how the world has changed over the course of this year it becomes much more difficult to decide on where you want to travel, where you should travel, and where you are even allowed to travel? That is why we are graciously asking for the help of any inmates who have intimate and current (current being most important given ever changing COVID guidelines) knowledge of any or all of the areas I mentioned we are looking to travel through as well as any suggestions for routes to take or areas / points of interest that should not be missed on the way down or back. Sorry for the long winded intro but I figured its best to get most of the background info out of the way for any prospective respondees. In return I am more than willing to give any my feedback on any of the trips we have taken that I had mentioned earlier! Thanks in advance and we hope that the spirit of adventure is still alive and well in the riding community even given all that has happened around the world this year.
