Mexico: Cycling Activity Holiday
A land of contrasts straddling temperate and tropical zones
Cycling holidays in Mexico along the Pacific coast, the western Sierra Madre Mountains, the Yucatan peninsula, and the southern states of Chiapas, Tabasco and Oaxaca are popular. The best time to plan a cycling holiday in Mexico is from October to May, when the weather is most pleasant. May onwards its gets very hot and cycling is not that enjoyable.
Many travelers opt for cycle tours around Puerto Vallerta with routes inside the tropical forest inviting you to discover its wealth of flora and fauna, to the paradisiacal hidden landscapes accessible only on two wheels. The Copper Canyon in Sierra Madre Occidental is another sought after destination for a cycling holiday in Mexico. Some of the best and most varied cycling in the world can be found at Copper Canyon. The biking ranges from slick rock and technical single track around Creel to cycling rough jeep roads, with challenging climbs and monster descents into the Copper Canyon.
