Mexico: Camping

A land of contrasts straddling temperate and tropical zones

Mexico Camping

A camping holiday in Mexico is an exciting adventure where you can experience the diversity of the land and the charm of the people. Mexico offers some of the Americas' most wonderful camping opportunities, and travelers embarking on a camping holiday in Mexico will return with lasting memories and the desire to return again. From camping in deserts to snowy temperate pine forests, the options are varied. However, keep in mind that the weather in Mexico is at most times unpredictable and it’s not uncommon to be caught in the midst of a tropical storm. Also the topography in most places will surprise you, so be geared up for everything. In Mexico, primitive camping is the norm, unless you join a camping site that provides basic amenities. If you want to be on the safer side and are not up to exploring the wilderness of Mexico, then choose an RV park or camping ground. For a camping holiday in Mexico head to the Baja Peninsula to places like Cabo San Lucas, Ensenada, Loreto, Los Barriles, San Felipe, Tecate, or the Pacific Coast including places like Hermosillo, La Placita, Puerto Penasco and San Carlos. Chihuahua and El Fuerte in Northern Mexico and Jalisco, Patzcuaro and Xochitepec in Central Mexico are popular camping locations.
