The Best of Mexico
Mexico boasts two main drawcards for travelers. First are the blissful beaches of the Yucatan Peninsula, especially the resorts of Cancun and Playa del Carmen. Secondly, Mexico is home to one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, in the Mayan city of Chichen Itza. Other highlights include Oaxaca, for a slice of the 'real' Mexico, and colonial Merida. Here are some of our most magical Mexican destinations!
No trip to Mexico is truly complete without a trip to the world famous site of Chichen Itza. The central temple is both mystical and highly impressive and is often surrounded by clapping visitors, as the noise from the clap reverberates off the walls, creating some rather interesting sounds. Voted as one of the New World Wonders in 2007, the ruins have garnered world-wide attention with travelers from around the globe eager to marvel at the famed El Castillo pyramid.
A former fishing town, modern Cancun is unrecognizable from just a few decades ago. It's now one of Central America's most famous beach resorts, with its picturesque coastline now dotted with 4 and 5-star hotels, each leading down to beautiful sandy beaches and clear water. Although it's tourist-centric, traditional Mexican culture can still be found in the salsa clubs, restaurants and El Meco Mayan ruins of El Centro, the more traditional part of the city.
Surrounded by lush forest, Oaxaca is a popular destination for travelers seeking to experience ‘the real Mexico’. From the indigenous villages to the delicious, traditional food sold on every street corner to the ancient ruins, this region is brimming with history, excitement and mystery. The city also provides some much needed respite from the intense Mexican heat as its altitude of 5,000ft above sea level means that the climate is pleasantly cool.
Speckled with colorful houses and beautiful architecture imbued with rich colonial history, Merida is the cultural and commercial center of the Yucatan state and is well worth a visit as you travel through Mexico. Plaza Grande is one of the main attractions of this thriving city and often sees free, impromptu salsa performances or jazz concerts. For a more educational visit, there are numerous museums on offer, telling guests the story of Merida.
Mexico's capital is a fascinating blend of the old and the new, with years of history intertwined with colonial neighborhoods, fascinating museums and a burgeoning urban center that is growing every year. Your Mexico trip will likely start in the city, as it is home to the country's main airport, alongside the international airport in Cancun. It's well worth spending a few days to acquaint yourself with the city before you move on!
The ruins of Tulum are perched on the rugged coastline of the Yucatan Peninsula, overlooking the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Tulum is a blend of ancient Mayan architecture and stunning natural beauty. Visitors can expect to explore well-preserved stone structures that once served as ceremonial sites, residential areas, and trading hubs. The unique coastal setting also makes it a must-visit destination for nature lovers, and anyone seeking breathtaking vistas.
