  • Mexico. If there is road-worthy riding in this country, we’ve probably done it. Our old brand name, Pancho Villa Moto-Tours says it all; when it comes to motorcycle touring in Mexico, no one does it better than MotoDiscovery.
  • Oaxaca (Wua-hak-a) is located about 300 miles southeast of Mexico City and possesses all the colorful character, pre-Columbian archeology, native indigenous traditions and Spanish Colonial heritage that makes Mexico such a fascinating travel destination. It is the capital city of the state that bears the same name, and is famous for its rich and unique cuisine as well known chef and restaurateur, Rick Bayless will testify. It is also known for one of the most interesting traditions, celebrated by native Zapotec tribes, Día de los Muertos…Day of the Dead.
  • This tour originates with your fly into Mexico City or Puebla. Many excellent international flight options are available. You will be met and transferred to the centro of Puebla, a Colonial era gem with a French history and known for its own unique culinary treasures. The ride then takes advantage of great secondary roads to the city of Oaxaca where you will be for two nights, taking optional rides, climbing the pyramids and temples of early Zapotec civilization (500 B.C) at the hilltop archeological city of Monte Alban and wandering the lively markets.
  • One of Mexico’s greatest motorcycling roads descends from the Sierra Madres to the Pacific Ocean where two nights will be spent at intimate boutique style villas right on the water. This part of Mexico has it all. You’ll then return to the lovely Colonial city of Puebla for one final night from where you will be transferred back to Mexico City( or Puebla) for your return international flight home. 
  • This is a quality event, on paved roads throughout. Exciting culture and history, incredible dining, superb accommodations, idyllic beaches, and of course excellent riding. Our service is genuine and legendary. This will be a holiday to remember.
  • A selection of the popular BMW GS model motorcycles are available. You will want to share this one with your friends. Advance bookings are required due to the demand for accommodations in Oaxaca during the Day of the Dead.
