Best Places in Mexico
Start by asking what do you want to do in Mexico. In 2020, 10 million people visited Cancun. But if you want to explore ancient ruins, you best look elsewhere.
Cancun is the capital of nightlife. People come to sip cocktails and relax on the white sandy beaches during the day. In the evening, party in luxury clubs and hotels until the early hours of the morning.
Tijuana is located only 20 miles from the US border, making it a great place for a day trip or overnight stay. The city is bursting with life, vibrant colors, and buckets of tequila. It is safe for tourists to visit, but you should avoid walking into bad neighborhoods at night.
History and culture buffs look no further than Merida. The city is home to rustic lanes, colonial buildings, and filled with historic museums. There are little to no tourist traps, so you get to experience the famous Mexican lifestyle.
And to top it off, the city is only a 1.5 drive from Chichen Itza.
Mexico has no shortage of accommodation, especially in tourist areas. From luxury hotels to rock bottom-priced hostels, there is something for everyone’s budget.
Prices vary but are very affordable. Even the top-class resorts cost only a fraction of the hotels in the US.
But to get the best deal, you should book in advance, especially during The Day of The Dead Festival.
Getting to Mexico
Flying to Mexico is the most popular mode of transport. The country has over 100 major or international airports. Airlines such as Air France, United Airlines, Delta, KLM, and many more operate flights here.
If you have a fear of flying, some buses enter from the US in the north and Guatemala in the south. Prices start at around $30 one way.
Things to Do in Mexico
Mexico is highly dependent on tourism. The nation made about $25 billion in 2019 from tourism. So the infrastructures and facilities in the country are outstanding.
There are thousands of tours and attractions dotted around Mexico. But while you’re here, you must explore ancient Mayan cities and witness one of the seven wonders of the world!
Otherwise, you can’t say you visited Mexico!
Mexico Travel Tips
Safety should always be your number one priority when traveling.
Contrary to popular beliefs, Mexico is a safe place to visit. Especially tourist destinations. But you should cover up expensive jewelry and not flash about large bundles of cash.
Mexico is one of the top foodie spots in the world, so when you visit, make the most of it. Avoid eating in outlets inside or close to tourist attractions. The food is overpriced, not authentic, and aimed at tourists, not locals.
Some stores accept US dollars but use Peso for the best rates.
Take a Trip to Mexico
A trip to Mexico should be on everyone’s bucket list. It’s packed with history, culture, and beauty. And now you have the chance to put it on and tick it off yours.
So pack a bag and start planning a trip to this great nation!
