    Tour Character
    This is an adventure ride that will be a mix of paved touring and off road explorations. Off road riding should only be moderately challenging for the experienced, spirited and physically abled riding enthusiast. Some days will provide options to take the pavement or experience off road sections. As with any MotoDiscovery Expedition, teamwork and flexibility are essential.

    So you want to see the REAL Mexico.

    DON STANLEY RODE WITH PANCHO VILLA..it is true! Don Stanley and MotoDiscovery:

    The MotoDiscovery tribe is a special one. Within our loyal following there is one "veteran" out there who goes as far back as our Pancho Villa Moto-Tour days, the affable Don Stanley. We'd have to dig back into the archives to find out how many tours he has been on with us. Many! He rode with Pancho Villa for sure!

    Don has inspired us to return to an area of Central Mexico on a high adventure ride through the Huasteca region along with a few friends and an open invitation for you to ride along and experience one of the most charming regions you'll find South of the Border.
    It is great having you with us again Don. Muchas gracias amigo!

    Don collaborated with MotoDiscovery to create a ride through what could argualbey be considered one of Mexico’s most beautiful, yet overlooked regions, the Huasteca. This east central region is filled with geographcial diversity, a richness in history and native culture, and an opportunity to enjoy great riding both on and off the pavement. This area is highlighted by the most northern cloud forests in the hemisphere, the El Cielo Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO sight that covers about 560 square miles reaching a peak altitude of 7,500 ft. above sea level.

    One stop where we’ll be for two nights is the legendary Real de Catorce, a hidden away Colonial era mining town in the high altiplano, accessed only after riding through a one kilometer long tunnel after climbing up a 14 mile long hand laid cobble stone road. On exiting the tunnel it is like you have experienced passage into a time zone set back two hundred years. Real de Catorce will invite exploration both on two wheels and walking the old streets of this revitalized once ghost town.

    In the usual MotoDiscovery style this event will be supported by our great staff team, a 4X4 vehicle and driver will be employed to bring up the rear, and depending on the group size one to two riding staff will lead the way. Great food, the best available accommodations and the benefit of over 33 years of experience in Old Mexico guarantees this to be a great riding event.

    Sign up soon. This one will fill fast. Don’t miss out on this pioneering event into the heart of Old Mexico. Vamanos muchachos!

    Thought you BMW MOA Forumites might enjoy this video of Papa Chuy Viejo riding to San Miguel de Allende MEX in January of 2006, produced by Pancho Villa Moto-Tours Guide Rick Lopez. The last minute of this 8 minute video features Hacienda Santa Engracia, which wiil be our last overnight stop in Mexico on our ride back to Estados Unidos ese!

    For those who follow such details, the US dollar will now buy almost 15 Mexican pesos. We are entering a sweet spot for those wanting to travel outside of the US as King Dollar is making a comeback.

    A Great Photograph of two of the nicest people you would ever want to meet and ride with, Skip and Nancy Mascorro - Owners of MotoDiscovery Tours.

    Photo was taken in front of the La Parochia Cathedral at the El Jardin of San Miguel de Allende on New Year's Eve 12/31/14. A Beautiful Pueblo Historico
