Get­ting around

Timeless Travels Magazine - - MEXICO -

It is easy to travel around Mexico by car or bus but there is only one pas­sen­ger train that op­er­ates called El Chepe. Click here for de­tails of routes and timeta­bles.

Buses are the most com­fort­able and most eco­nom­i­cal means to travel be­tween Mex­i­can des­ti­na­tions. Click here for more in­for­ma­tion. You can buy tick­ets online, over the phone, or at Ticket bus coun­ters.

Road signs in Mexico are in Span­ish and traf­fic rules can some­times be con­fus­ing. Toll roads are in good con­di­tion, but they have no places to stop such as petrol sta­tions or toi­lets.

Be aware of su­per speed bumps known as ‘Topes’, which are in­di­cated by a yel­low high­way sign with a thick hor­i­zon­tal black line with cir­cu­lar bumps. Some of them are made of steel spheres imbed­ded in the road, so if you hit them go­ing too fast, you will dam­age the car.
