Mexico remains a one of the most popular destinations for travelers and trekkers from around the globe. A country rich with history, culture, and beautiful landscapes, it’s best to visit Mexico between December and April — when temperatures remain below 90 degrees and the rainfall isn’t too heavy.
Here are four fantastic draws that’ll make you want to travel to Mexico.
The Luxurious Resorts
Renown throughout the world for their blend of awe-inspiring scenery and pampering treatment of guests, Mexican luxury resorts give many people a chance to live the lavish life. From mega-resorts to small independent operations, there’s plenty to choose from!
The Cool Mayan Ruins
One of the coolest (and arguably nerdiest) attractions for tourists, is to see and explore the remains of the pre-Columbian society that once stretched from Southern Mexico to El Salvador. The Mayan empire lasted from around 700 BC to practically 1700 (that’s over two thousand years) and left many prominent urban centers and buildings that are still standing to this day. The two best site in Mexico include Chichen Itza on the Yucatan Peninsula, which is the most visited Mayan site in the world, and Palenque in Chiapas, which is the most studied and written-about Mayan archeological site.
The Amazing Beaches
From surfing to snorkeling to swimming to just relaxing in the sand, Mexican beaches are considered some of the best in the world. You can join the crowds at popular destinations like Cancun and Acapulco or pay a little extra and head to a more remote locale like Tulum (and everything in between). Just like the resorts you can stay in, there’s plenty to choose from.
The Delicious Food
There’s no need to make the case that Mexican food is a divine gift to anyone with taste buds. If you’ve ever tasted authentic Mexican cuisine, them you know. The state of Oaxaca, with its cross-section of different subcultures and resulting culinary blending, remains THE favorite destination for travelers wanting to try some appetizing bites. There’s also the city of Puebla, which is famous for its district of Mexican sweets sellers, known as “la calle de los dulces” (translation: the candy street). Oh, and you can’t forget the famed food scene of the country’s capital city, Mexico City, which ranges from high end restaurants to street vendors.
