About Our Tours

All of our rides begin and end in the mountain town of Ajijic, a thousand kilometres south of the US border and a thousand north of Guatemala and from there we explore the heart of Mexico in all its variety. We enjoy the beautiful mountain roads full of sweepers and twisties on good two lane blacktop. On most of the days we ride at 4,000' -7,000' above sea level so the climate is cooler and less humid than in the coastal regions - perfect for riding.

All our accommodations are at the upper end of Mexican hotels, not just clean and comfortable but often beautiful. Mexico is world famous for its cuisine and we have searched out many delicious options from fresh seafood and Mexican specialties to bacon and eggs.

The courses are laid out by our veteran Mexico scouts who have had decades of touring experience here and have logged tens of thousands of miles exploring this country's seemingly endless great riding roads. The weather is reliably excellent for riding between November and April and the beautiful vistas will leave you awestruck. All our tours are led by mature, American and Canadian guides who live in Mexico and, where appropriate, are supported by a vehicle to carry luggage and supplies.

Whichever tour you choose you’ll find that the perfect climate, spectacular scenery, great riding, friendly people and the Mexican mystique all add up to an exhilarating experience. No matter how often we ride in Mexico, we still call it "Motorcycle Heaven"

What to expect upon arrival

After being greeted at the international airport in Guadalajara, you will be taken to your accommodations in the charming, cobblestoned town of Ajijic, on the north shore of Lake Chapala, a short ride of just 25 minutes.  We will provide free pick up and returns for flights arriving between 8 am to 8 pm.  

Depending on guest arrival times we often get together to walk through the cobblestone streets of Ajijic to get acquainted with the town and perhaps visit a local restaurant.

Tomorrow morning,  we meet at our tour center at Casa Sierra to complete any administrative matters. You will have the opportunity to get acquainted with your bike and fellow travelers and enjoy a hacienda-style dinner.
