Mexico is often portrayed as the country where America goes to party; and whilst there is some truth in that, with some 33 million Americans crossing the border each year – Mexico has so much more to offer travellers.
The capital, Mexico City is growing at breakneck speed, and in this restless metropolis, you can enjoy fantastic restaurants, colourful markets and first-rate museums. Popular attractions include the Aztec ruins at Templo Mayor, its famous Cathedral and the Palacio de Bellas Artes.
Mexico is known for its vibrant festival culture too; with Cinco de Mayo and its Day of the Dead ceremony drawing crowds the world over. For a less boisterous experience, famous colonial-era churches like San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato offer an equally spiritual experience.
If you prefer natural pursuits, Mexico still has much to provide delight. With whale watching, jungle treks or swimming in its many breathtaking blue lagoons all on offer.
The jungles of Mexico contain the pyramids, temples and abandoned cities of its pre-Colombian Mayan and Aztec civilisations, many of which are in excellent condition and have protected UNESCO World Heritage status.
We cannot summarise the highlights of Mexico and fail to mention its biggest cultural exports; Mexican food like enchiladas, pozole, tacos and spirits like tequila and mezcal which are loved the world over.
Whatever type of holiday you seek, chances are Mexico can offer it, and offer washed down with some of its famous beers, spirits and upbeat Latin vibes.
