I once went to Mexico when I was 11 years old, and one of the most vivid memories I have are how crazy the drivers are. It felt much like being in New York. I would strongly suggest while visiting Mexico to have someone drive you around, and to get a bus or taxi. They have their own set of driving rules in Mexico, and often times don’t even stop at stop signs! The website for one of the most popular surf towns in Mexico, Punta de Mita, has a section on “Getting There and Around” which highlights transportation in that city. Their suggestion is to take a taxi or bus while visiting Mexico.
