Mexico Travel Guide

Last Updated: April 2020

Mexico is one of the six cradles of civilization and was home to many Mesoamerican civilizations such as the Aztecs and Mayans. It is an ecologically megadiverse country, ranking fifth in the world for its biodiversity. Mexico attracts more than 39 million international tourists every year, making it the sixth most-visited country in the world. The most notable attractions are the Mesoamerican ruins, cultural festivals, colonial cities, nature reserves, and the beach resorts. Choose Mexico as your next vacation destination and you are sure to become enchanted by the hospitable people, the world-renowned cuisine, and the stunning sights wherever you go.

Where to Go in Mexico

Mexico is such a diverse country, that depending on where you go you will find a different climate and landscape. The most popular beach destination, especially among university students during spring break, is the resort town of Cancún, with the beautiful Isla Mujeres just a short boat ride in front of it. Just a little further south, you will find cliff-side Mayan ruins in the historic port of Tulum. If you want to go scuba diving, then head over to the beautiful towns of Acapulco or Cozumel. If you are interested in deep-sea fishing, then you should check out Cabo San Lucas. Love to go hiking? Explore the Copper Canyon, which is deeper than even the Grand Canyon, or the ecological preserve of Xcaret. If you want to experience the culture, history, and vibrant city life of Mexico, then discover the beautiful area of Mexico City.

Most parts of Mexico are open for tourism all-year-round due to their temperate or tropical climates. If you want to avoid peak tourism season, then skip the weeks of Easter and Spring break, when many of the beach resort sites will be flooded with university students from the United States.

What to Do in Mexico

The beach resorts are the most popular destination for tourists traveling to Mexico. You can relax in paradise, eating and drinking on the beach. There are also many activities usually provided by the beach resorts including scuba diving, snorkeling, and sailing. However, if you are looking to escape the beach resorts, then there is so much more to do. You can learn about the ancient history of Mexico by exploring the Mayan and Aztec ruins such as Chichén-Itzá and Teotihuacán. Also, Mexico City is home to more museums than any other city in the world. The most popular museum is the Frida Kahlo House, but there are also other museums such as the Anthropology Museum, and even a museum dedicated to tequila and mescal.
