REASONS TO VISIT AND LOVE MEXICO
The perfect way to plan your next trip
From its internationally famous gastronomy, to its cultural greatness, Mexico is a country full of options that will allow you to enjoy a vacation that will leave you wanting to return.
Connecting a large number of countries, the Mexico City airport is the largest port of arrival, where it will surely be your first approach to Mexican culture.
Mexico City is a huge city. The country's capital is bubbly and buzzing.
With more than 8.8 million inhabitants (that is, more inhabitants than New York City), in this huge city you will find a balance between the Aztec cultural vestige, to the great business centers of Santa Fe.
It is also a fairly affordable city and with excellent spaces for photography, so we suggest the “Zocalo” as a mandatory stop.
Its correct name is “Plaza de la Constitución”, but it is popularly known as the "Zocalo". This particular place was the center of Tenochtitlan, the Aztec city where Hernán Cortes arrived and to this day it remains a quite important cultural, political and religious symbol. Around it are the government palace and the cathedral, making it a place always full of visitors.
As an extra, from the Zocalo you will find a subway station that connects you with almost the entire city, where you can move for little money.
If you have little time in Mexico City, you can also take a tour from the Zocalo that will take you on a tour of the city to see the most emblematic places. This tour allows you to get on and off the bus if you want to extend your stay at a tourist spot of your choice.
Mexico is undoubtedly famous for its beaches, but a must see is the island of "Isla Mujeres".
You take a ferry from Cancun and after a 30-minute trip through the beautiful turquoise waters of the Caribbean, you arrive at this small tropical island that is perfect to try local food and enjoy beaches that are not so crowded with tourists.
One of the most famous activities on this island is snorkeling. Renting snorkeling equipment and swimming surrounded by colorful fish in crystal clear waters is a great experience that you will never forget.
Traveler tip: Most tours will take you to a park dedicated to snorkeling where the entrance fee is around $ 25 per person, but right next to this big resort , there is a small hotel, owned by locals that offers the same services to an excellent price, with delicious food and very good facilities. Support locals!
Whether walking through the noisy and varied city of Mexico, visiting magical towns full of tradition or sunbathing on a beach, Mexico has incredible places to spend an unforgettable vacation.
Family travel, backpacking or with friends, this country will offer you a rich, colorful and fun culture that adapts to all tastes.
Mark it on your to-do list, Visit Mexico and you will love it.
I like to spend my days traveling around Mexico and capturing its beauties. i really like cultural diversity and i am seeing many cultures disappearing and getting lost in modernization and globalization so I feel the urge to determine the maximum amount as I can of this planet as fast as possible before all this beautiful diversity disappears and everything looks the identical. Plus I'm an awe-junkie and totally hooked thereto feeling of amusement I've got once I see something new and beautiful!
