In my defense on a misdemeanor charge, can a readiness hearing be used to hear a PC 1385 motion?

Be sure you comply with the other obligations of probation, i.e. completing your classes, if any, community service, etc., before going so there is not a bench warrant issued before you leave or while you are in Mexico.
