Okay. I'm not sure if I'll be able to pull this off this year or later but I want to do an international ride. I'm single so there really isn't any hard and fast must do things during Xmas. With the built in holidays from work combined with a few days off on each side of the new year, it wouldn't be that hard to sneak in a two or three week ride. But what route to take? What bike?

Instead of trying to figure out road to road directions through the region I think it would be better to pinpoint a bunch of cool things to check out along the way connecting the dots as you go. So if you know of some cool spots, roads, or must see things throw some links up and a map of where these things are.

There was a very handy trip planner for Mexico that used to work well but seems to be having some problems right now. I'll throw in the link just in case it's a temporary outage. I haven't used it for a few years, but it was very helpful. It included tolls and everything:

Mexico City is quite an impressive place, as are Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende. Sayulita, on the Pacific coast, is a nice touristy beach town. Cabo Pulmo in Baja is not touristy yet, but it's probably way out of your way. Mayan ruins in the Yucatan are not to be missed.

I've always been partial to Belize, because they speak English down there.
