Bike storage in Cancun Mexico

Fun fact = Direct flights from Montreal to Cancun cost less than 200$

Vacation time being such a precious commodity and being able to leave in 2-3 week spurts has made me think about traveling to Mexico, store the bike in Cancun to fly home. Come back later and ride home on a separate trip.

Anyone know anything about Cancun storage? I would like a safe place where the bike will be indoors and not messed with.

Gracias fellow reclusos!

Don't forget to consider Temporary Vehicle Import Permit paperwork. Riding a motorcycle without a current, valid TVIP can get the bike impounded if circumstances don't go your way.

For an example, scroll down to the link at bottom of Appendix C in the Collective Guide to riding Mexico below in my sig line, and read the travails of Dimkick.

You may also wish to see if any ADVers are in the Cancun area by exploring the ADV Riders "Mexico" thread in Regionals/Latin America under Trip Planning.

Looks like you have done many great things for ADV and I need to study your body of work.

Appendix C does not mention the time limit TVIP. Do you happen to know the limit? Can it be renewed?

Thanks!

Is it possible to extend it for a fee?

Unfortunately, no

Once issues, TVIPs expire when they expire, as indicated on the form itself.

Your only recourse is to cancel the existing TVIP (in person, with your bike) and acquire a new one.
