Mexico has traditionally been among the most visited countries in the world. The most notable attractions are the Meso american ruins, cultural festivals, colonial cities, nature reserves and the beach resorts. The nation’s wide range of climates, from temperate to tropical, and unique culture – make Mexico an attractive destination.
A lot of touring cyclists go cycling through Mexico on a Trans-Mexico or Pan-Americas trip. There’s also the classic route for cycling through northern Mexico down Baja California by the Pacific before getting a boat across to the mainland.
Mexico is a land of extremes, with high mountains and deep canyons in the center of the country, sweeping deserts in the north, and dense rain forests in the south and east. Mountains cover much of Mexico.
The climate in Mexico is tropical with a rainy and dry season and little temperature fluctuation from season to season. The temperature in all areas of Mexico typically ranges between 50°F and 90°F throughout the year. Average annual humidity is around 70%.
