  • Do you have somewhere specific in Mexico that you want to visit? Aug 26 '15 at 22:50
  • It should only take 2 or 3 weeks to get a US tourist or transit visa. The real problem with is that it is expensive (US$160) compared to the short 90-day validity for Iranian nationals. Aug 27 '15 at 2:09
  • @GregHewgill , no, i just want to visit mexico

Unfortunately, through regularly scheduled means of transportation, flying is likely to be the cheapest option for you.

Sites like kayak might help you reduce the price, and you can specify direct flights, skipping out the US.

You can look at things like freighter travel, where you use a cargo ship to get down, but otherwise your only other 'hitchhiking' option is to look at a website like findacrew.net, where you can look for boats going to Mexico, and maybe you can help out onboard in exchange for a ride.
