Best Places to Visit in Mexico

When you hear the word Mexico, images of American tourist holidays like weekends in Cancun and parties in Cabo might come to mind. Peel back the layers of this facade and be met with heart, soul, and spice. A vivid culture with deep-rooted traditions, eclectic cities, and spectacular physical diversity, the Mexican people are known as vivacious city folk, friendly small-town villagers, and welcoming hosts. Mexico is a patchwork quilt of landscapes - golden beaches, snow-capped mountains, old colonial “magic” towns, muggy rainforests, and deserts that set the scene for colorful street food, equally colorful folk-art traditions, outdoor adventure, exploration of cultural and historical treasures, and pure relaxation.

Food in Mexico is fiery - a true burst of flavor that targets all your taste buds. Darting from region to region, you’ll come across a creative gastronomy that includes the likes of birria (stew with chili and spices) in Guadalajara, arroz con leche (rice pudding) in the Bajio region, and tropical salsas in Yucatan cooking. At the same time, the great outdoors awakens the senses. The smell of secluded sandy beaches and salty seas in Tulum, the feeling of being microscopic among massive pyramids in Teotihuacan, the sounds of the rainforest in Chiapas, and the spectacle of a million fluttering Monarch butterflies in Michoacan; Mexico is a place for exploration. Although Mexico has a reputation for being unsafe, it is no more dangerous than most other tourist hotspots around the world - just be a smart traveler.
