Looking to increase your Gamerscore while playing Forza Horizon 5? There are plenty of achievements to collect in Mexico. Let's take a look at the full list.
Some of them are very quick and easy!
About a third of the Forza Horizon 5 achievements will be completed just by playing through the game until you reach the Hall of Fame. Make sure you do all of the showcases and stories and you'll be well on your way! But some of them are a little more obscure. There's no way you'll get every achievement without checking the list.
Some of these achievements need to be completed in specific seasons. We've investigated and will talk you through the trickier ones!
Tricky to earn achievements
You might have spotted that there's a bonus board on top of the temple next to the Sierra Verde Dam. We believe you can only reach this during the Spring season. Get this one as soon as possible, or you'll be waiting weeks for another opportunity to get the Complete Collection achievement!
It's a similar story with dust storms in the desert area. If you want to get the Dust in the Lens achievement quickly, you'll need to do so during Spring, or alternatively create a blueprint event in that area with the correct weather. For this one you need to take a photo featuring both the Gran Telescopio and a dust storm.
The butterflies at Hotel Mirador Balderrama probably won't appear every season either, so if you're in the area at dawn make sure to snap some shots. The butterflies are very hard to spot but personally, I picked up this achievement inadvertently doing some photography in the area.
If you haven't yet unlocked all fourteen barn finds, read our guide to those and you'll soon have this achievement completed.
