Hi!

You may have seen that I am planning a trip from Toronto to Mexico City during summer 2020 in my most recent post. I am still in the intro part of my research and reading on Hitchhiking and all that I need to know. I'm going to be posting all around the forums to gain information and share experiences/information, but wanted to stay in contact with a few individuals that have been to Mexico before and not on a resort or whatnot. The purpose of this would be so I can prepare and learn from ya'll as it seems that many of you have had incredible experiences. I'd like to be able to stay in contact, share experiences, advice/tips, maybe learn some Spanish if possible, and of course create new friendships :)!

I am so intrigued by this community and am glad to have the chance to take part! Thanks again!

Omar

Para empezar, deberías leer Alvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca en el español original: fue el turista blanco original en México

I have taken 7 trips though Mexico over the years. Mostly by bicycle. And I love Mexico outside the resort areas. I have only been hitch hiking very little in Mexico, but you might be able to get a small impression about the roads running through Mexico if you take a look at some of the photos I have posted from my various cycling trips around this amazing country: Cycling on the roof of Mexico. - http://travellingclaus.com/cycling-roof-mexico/

Mexico is an awesome and vibrant country with so much to do. I've been twice in the past 2 years, Yucatan and Mexico City.

I'd be glad to help and maybe even join if you need a road buddy. I haven't hitchhiked there but the people are very friendly if you can speak enough spanish to get your point across. If all else fails you can always catch a bus outta town for pretty cheap.

I did get shaken down by the cops for having a beer in public in Mexico City but that was my own dumb fault for not paying attention and speaking spanish to them trying to get out of it. LOL

Would you say Hitchhiking from Toronto, Canada through the US to Mexico City is possible if I don't speak any Spanish at all?
Also, are you from around Mexico? It would be nice if I could meet individuals and build friendships along the way.

I'm also curious about this, however, I do speak Spanish.
Deaf people don't speak and they get by alright, you should be ok.
I'd do it myself, but my primary concern is strays attacking my dog.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$25.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
