Mexico PLANE, BUS, CAR
Getting There
Air
The most preferred means has over the years been by air travels. There are direct flights to Cancun and Mexico City international airports directly from many locations in Europe including Munich, Amsterdam, London, Paris, Rome, and other places.
 It’s cheaper to fly into the USA first and then catch another direct flight to Mexico for tourists from Asia, but there are also direct flights from Japan, China, and Russia to Mexico City international airport. 
From Australia, there are direct flights from New Zealand and Australia. Flights are available from Brisbane, Sydney, and Auckland. But again, a better option will be to fly into the USA first before proceeding to Mexico. This way will not only save cost but offer the opportunity of exploring other places even before entering Mexico; so the fun begins on the road.
There are so many flight options from Canada and the USA since these two are neighbouring countries to Mexico, from San Diego, Toronto, Calgary, Montreal, and many other states in Canada and the USA.
Land
By land, tourists can drive or board a bus. With one of the best transport systems in the world Mexico operates a well-organised inter-city bus system that is efficient and reliable. There are accessible routes at the borders from Los Angeles to El Paso, Panama City to Tapachula, Guatemala City to Tapachula, Belize City to Merida and Cancun. Moderate rates are charged per trip depending on the distance covered. 
Expect delays if you're driving across the borders. The border’s notorious reputation for drugs, weapons, illegal weapons, and the likes make border crossing a hectic one. Delays can sometimes last for up to two hours at busy crossing points. Insurance against theft, accidents, and other legal papers must be available when crossing the border. 
Railway 
There were several routes into Mexico using trains
Mexico 90 DAYS
Peak Travel Periods
Peak travel period in Mexico is from December through to the first week of March. But in Mexico, every time is a good time to spend the holidays. The country is indeed very vast and the weather varies over its large landscape, but the major part of the country experiences a clear, chilly, and pleasant weather during this period. Prices fall within summer in these areas but climb in places that are close to the beach as visitors who come into the country during this period for touristic purpose seem to swamp to the beaches for an enjoyable sunbath under the summer sun on the white sands.
