FAQs: Mountain Biking in Mexico

What should I know about Mountain Biking Mexico?

Fewer places offer as diverse and scenic options for mountain biking adventures as Mexico does. From the mountains and deserts of the northwest to the tropical parts of the southeast, the country is full or gorgeous scenery and great mountain biking trails.

Exploring the cenotes, which are sinkholes, caves and Mayan ruins of the Yucatan peninsula is a great way to add a cultural element to your mountain biking adventure. Swimming in the sinkholes as well as the nearby sea is a great way to cool off on a hot day.

While not all of the volcanoes in the country can be climbed on bike, there are a few that can and doing so is highly advisable. Peaks such as Nevado de Toluca and Ajusco make for great climbs and offer some fantastic views as a reward for your efforts.

However, be sure to follow all the instructions of your guide and be fairly cautious in Mexico as crime has risen in recent years and kidnappings of tourists are not unheard of. Be sure not to advertise your wealth by wearing expensive clothes, watches and jewelry. Always use licensed taxis and ride hailing apps when traveling in cities. Avoid travel after dark and do not drive by yourself or at night.

Why should I choose Mexico for my Mountain Biking adventure?

Stunning scenery

Getting out on a mountain bike is one of the best ways to see Mexico’s stunning scenery. Enjoy vistas out over the colourful Caribbean Sea, speed through tropical rainforest in the country’s southeast or wind along dusty mountain tracks at sunset. There is no limit to this country’s natural beauty.

Plenty of variety

From the white-sand beaches and turquoise blue sea on the Yucatan peninsula to the numerous peaks and ridges of Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt, there are plenty of places to head out for a mountain biking adventure. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon out in the sun or make a grueling uphill ascent of a dormant volcano. The sky is the limit here.

Excellent exercise

Mountain biking is a great way to get a workout without even noticing. Workout your legs as you ascend to 3.000 meters in elevation and beyond. Then exercise your core as you prepare for the descent. Get some cardio in as you head from one cenote or ancient Mayan ruin to the next. There are few other workouts as scenic or complete as mountain biking in Mexico.

What can I expect from the weather in Mexico?

Mexico is quite a big country and therefore has a quite diverse climate. South of Mexico City, expect hot summers and only slightly cooler winters, with most rain coming in the spring, summer and autumn. Farther north and west, expect hot summers, but colder winters. This part of the country is generally much drier too.

How can I get to Mexico?

Any trip to Mexico will begin with a flight into the international airport in Mexico City (MEX). From here, you will likely transfer to a local airport closer to your final destination or meet your guide in Mexico City and transfer to the start of the trip together.
