5 reasons you should add this MotoDiscovery feature destination to your bucket list

The South American continent offers a wealth of adventure riding treasures. We’ve been riding there since 1995, and by far the most popular region is the southern reaches of Chile and Argentina known as Patagonia.

Technically it is bound by the Atlantic Ocean to the East the Pacific to the West, sandwiching the Andean mountain range, a stunning system of fjords with temperate rainforests, glacial lakes, and barren windswept grasslands. It is this exact dynamic that offers you a thrilling motorcycle riding experience, unlike any other on the planet.

Here are 5 good reasons why you should add this Patagonia motorcycle tour to your bucket list:

New Years in San Miguel de Allende

Celebrate the New Year with us in Old Mexico

This Mexico tour is designated LIGHT ADVENTURE, only due to foreign riding conditions. It is a ROAD TOUR meaning the route is entirely on paved roads of varying quality and is perfectly suited for singles or couples who have prior road touring experience. With convenient flights available into the Central Mexico city of Queretaro, you will land in the heart of the country’s charming Bajio region known for historical European and early Spanish Colonial influences.

This tour is similar to our Colonial Mexico tour with minor itinerary changes to accommodate the colorful New Year celebrations in San Miguel de Allende, a MotoDiscovery tradition. As well, conditions permitting, a visit to the world renown Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary, adds to an already exciting riding event.

MotoDiscovery is the most experienced and longest running operator of motorcycle tours in Mexico, since 1981. Make your reservation early as groups are small to afford participants the best service on this romantic South of the Border tour.

How difficult is this ride?

This is a MotoDiscovery Road Tour Light Adventure. It’s paved all the way and suitable for any experienced motorcycle touring enthusiast.

How is the weather?

MotoDiscovery travels during what we consider to be optimum riding seasons. Altitudes range from high deserts of 4,000 feet to mountains reaching almost 9,000 feet. Temperatures can range from cool mornings with rapid warming through the day. Weather updates are provided in a MotoDiscovery e-mail Communique right before the tour.

Is it safe?

Know that we consider this a priority. Over 30 million travelers come to Mexico on average each year. While we consider the safety question to be overblown, we still take it seriously and recognize that there are territorial criminal elements engaged in drug related activity in many parts of Mexico. These elements rarely bother tourists as this only brings unnecessary attention to them. It is a strange coexistence. We encourage you to contact us if you have any questions or concerns knowing that at any time, anywhere, we feel your security is compromised , we will be honest and respond accordingly.

Is this suitable for a passenger?

Yes. Definitely!  The Colonial Tour has long been a couples favorite with romantic accommodations, delightful dining, a moderate pace and the discovery of exciting cultures. Share the new year with your friends and loved ones!

I don’t speak Spanish.

No worries. We have native speakers on all of our tours in Mexico. Many people in Mexico speak English. We encourage you to learn a few words and we will gladly provide some lessons along the way if you wish!

How long are the riding days?

Longest day is about 185 miles. Shortest day is approximately 150 miles. Do the days seem short? In miles, yes. Small villages, curvy mountain roads and our desire for having a relaxed pace will easily fill your day. So much to do and see along the way.

What documents are required to enter Mexico?

A passport, drivers license and an easily obtained online Mexico tourist permit for a modest fee. Simple. We will go into more detail on this matter in pre-tour Communiques.

How are the accommodations?

MotoDiscovery strives to provide the best possible accommodations for our riding guests. This tour is no exception.  Overall we find lodging on this tour to be very good. In our attempt to seek unique lodging in the centro, the group may be separated in San Miguel, staying in small boutique hotels.

What about the food?

As is the usual MotoDiscovery policy we encourage ordering from an open menu and enjoy sharing with you a great dining experience. You won’t be disappointed. Those with special dietary requirements can count on our cooperation and satisfaction.  

Can MotoDiscovery design a private tour just for me and my friends?
