Hi, I'm planning a trip from Dallas Texas to Cancun Mexico. Unfortunately there aren't many resources on the internet about traveling this particular road trip. I'm planning on leaving by car on Friday March 13th and returning Sunday March 22nd.
I'm planning on taking a car that gets 35 MPG, as of now there are two people coming for sure and possibly more. The distance is about 4,300 miles round trip from Dallas to Cancun, I'm going to estimate about 5,000 miles since I plan on going to Tulum, Chichen Itza, and maybe Merida. So that would be around $340 in gas round trip.
However, I need some information on toll charges, driving into Mexico fees, and tourist permit fees. This will be my first time in Mexico and I'm traveling on a budget.
How much does it cost to bring your vehicle into mexico? What documents do you need?
What documents will each person in the car need to travel to mexico?
What is the typical cost of gas in mexico?
Where can I find information about how much it will cost in toll fees for my roundtrip? Would it be worth just taking free roads?
