The highways in Mexico generally are fair to good. The country has made massive investments in its road infrastructure in an effort to connect the country’s main towns and cities with reliable roads. Roads are good around popular tourist areas and major cities but rural-area roads are rougher and are often unpaved. The interstate highway system roads are well maintained.
Multi-lane expressways often have narrow lanes and steep shoulders, so drivers unfamiliar with the roads should be cautious. Drivers should also be aware that speed bumps (topes) are widely used in Mexico, so watch for signs and slow down to avoid vehicle damage.
