Ride Through Old World Mexico on MotoDiscovery’s Colonial Mexico Road Tour

Mexico has always held a special place in the hearts of the MotoDiscovery Team. After all this is the country where it all began for us over 30 years ago. The Colonial Mexico Motorcycle Road Tour is the perfect combination of old world culture coupled with smooth touring throughout Mexico. This is a nine day tour traveling over 1200 miles. This trip is perfect for riders who want a tour that has an abundance of culture and sites to see. The ride is generally moderate, and since the tour departs from McAllen Texas guests can choose to bring their own ride if they are more comfortable. We have two different dates in 2016 to fit your schedule. You can choose from a tour beginning May 12th or in the fall beginning Oct 22nd. Either of these tours will provide a more mild temperature in the Mexico regions we will be traveling.

The Colonial Tour is the best way to experience Old Mexico. Among many highlights of this Tour is San Miguel de Allende. This city was voted by Conde Nast Traveler as the top city in the World in 2013. San Miguel has long been one of the favorites of the Motodiscovery crew. We are confident that after you spend some time in the cobblestone streets, lively plazas, and hear the ringing church bells you will be impressed as well.

When in San Miguel you will experience the Sierra Gorda which is one of Mexico’s most noted motorcycle roads. We will begin on the tropical eastern slopes of the Sierra Madres. This hills here are covered with beautiful coffee plantations. The climb will take you through some of Mexico’s best pine forests. Once reaching the top we begin to descend into the altiplano. A great ride downhill provides riders with spectacular desert vistas and exciting twists and turns where you we not forget this motorcycle tour is unlike any other. You will take in a series of stunning and colorful missions and monasteries on this portion of the ride.

Another highlight of this tour is our stay in a remote mining town of Real de Catorce. This area is definitely off the path of most travelers and vacationers. It is accessed only by a 2 KM long tunnel. Real de Catorce was once a ghost town but is slowing coming to life. In the area you will see the old Spanish charm and elegance of Colonial Mexico that most only see in pictures.

The Colonial Mexico Road Tour is a Motodiscovery Tour where you are free to bring your own bike. This event takes place on paved roads so any bike will do. As usual Motodicovery can facilitate a rental if you desire.

Motodiscovery operates Motorcycle Tours to some of the most remote and exotic locations on Earth. If it is possible to discover an area on a motorcycle Motodiscovery is there to do it. We don't lead tours, we facilitate your adventure. That is the MotoDiscovery difference.
