Highway trips can be long and if we are going to be in a car for a few hours, we better be able to arrive at our destination relaxed and having enjoyed the long drive, especially if we consider the beautiful landscapes that our Mexico has and the breathtaking views that we encounter when we travel on its highways.
We chose 350,000 pesos as the maximum price because it seems sensible in a highway car, for a lower range you can also access great deals, however, we believe that many of them may have more of an urban focus.

A traveler who is arriving to Ecuador just wrote me with the same doubt of many travelers when returning to the country, but she just found out about the problem, I found out when I was in Panama. Many travelers do not find out until they are back at the border trying to enter Argentina again and others who are planning their departure have NO IDEA ABOUT THE ISSUE and this I am writing you now may save you all the headache this means and even save you a lot of money.
