I don't know about Mexico, but some of the rental places in San Diego rent dual sports that you can take in.

There are some US tour co's that rent DS bikes for Baja, mostly based along the I-8 SD corridor. You'd have to Google em though.

Cancun can be a relatively cheap destination as far as airfares go. They plan to take more of your money once you're on the ground there.

Mex City has a bunch of money, so I'd be surprised if there weren't some outlets there.

Cancun is way-the-you-know-what out there, but you can actually look at svelt Euro babe bikinis on the beach in the morning and be sipping cold cervezas that same evening up high in Chiapas, if you have a notion to ride.

Good to hear things are working out for you down there.
