Free Mexican Road Maps: Handy For Cyclists!

Detailed Map of Mexico Going to Mexico on your bike? If the answer is yes, take a look at (and download) these very detailed – and free! – road maps.

The maps are produced by Mexico’s department of transportation; the Secrectaria de Comunicaciones y Transportes or SCT. They highlight back roads and dirt tracks, as well as main highways. They’ve kindly been put online by Nico, who’s spent the last few months cycling from Canada to Mexico. He says:

My research into Mexico maps or cycling routes was limited to tracking the routes of other cyclists whose blogs I had followed during the planning of my trip, most of which consisted of the coastal highway route after arriving on the mainland at Mazatlan.

After a little hunting, Nico stumbled on a reference to the SCT maps, although the process to pick them up in person seemed a bit complicated. With a bit more Googling, he found the SCT maps online and decided to store them on his own website. Now everyone can download them easily, to refer to on a smartphone or print at a local copy shop.

Thanks, Nico!

    Thanks for the Mexico map link. I’ve just spent 4 days in Baja and would love to return. The maps will be useful.

    Maps appear to be broken. I downloaded both baja maps and two pdf viewers reported both unreadable.

      I just tested a Baja map and it works for me… how old are your PDF viewers or browser PDF plugins? Maybe you need to upgrade them.

        Actually I had the same problem. Noticed that Dropbox gives a list of files, so you assume you can right-click and save target as a pdf, but that does not work.

        You need to open each file (in a new tab) and in those tabs click the download link, then it works.

        Some smaller roads were missing, for example the small but important connection from the Paso de Cortez to Puebla. So not sure if they are up to date, but great for planning!

    Thanks a million for these great PDF maps! Does anyone know how to print them? At least the Puebla and oaxaca files have some sort of protection on em 😐

    Hi Sven, Yes I have also noticed the protection now and am in the process of un-protecting and re-uploading the maps.

    We have been using the maps a lot recently and they have been great for finding quieter alternatives to the highways that just don’t appear on more commonly available road maps.

    The maps are from around 2006 though and Mexican road infrastructure is moving at a scary pace so as Harry & Ivana say, some newer roads may not be on there.

    They have worked brilliantly for me so far 🙂
