Stay tuned to find out why you should vacation in Mexico this summer!
1. Best places to go
There is no shortage of places to go even just within Mexico but there are a few that you should take notice of. If you are flying into Cancun, we recommend going straight from Cancun Airport to Playa del Carmen to relax on the beach after your long flight.
You can even choose to snorkel, zipline or play some golf before having dinner with a sunset view. The next day you can take a 2-hour car ride to Chichén Itzá to learn about the history of the Mayan ruins and the Yucatan peninsula as a whole.
To continue your historical exploration, you can head over to Merida. Merida has a lot of standard tourist attractions such as museums, markets, casinos, archaeological sites, zoos and even more ruins.
However, our favorites are the cenotes which are truly a one-of-a-kind swimming and diving experience.
Other notable places to visit throughout the Yucatan peninsula are places like Xcaret Park, Aktun Chen, Playa Akumal and Bacalar Lagoon. You can easily find transportation within the country to fulfill all your traveling needs from luxury cars to boat tours.
Everyone knows that going to Mexico is all about relaxing on the beach and enjoying the happening nightlife at island parties. This is because when most countries are experiencing grueling winters, Mexico is enjoying perfect summer weather.
The best time to visit the country is during its dry season which lasts for a very long time and usually runs from December to the beginning of April. This is also the time when most tourist attractions are open to the public due to high demand.
You can go during January or March to ensure fewer crowds and a better experience.
However, extending your trip past May is not recommended because you won’t be able to enjoy much with pouring rain and the approaching hurricane season.
3. Festivals and events
Mexico is a country so rich in culture that there is always something fun and exciting going on no matter the time you visit. There are always many great festivals and event celebrations happening around the country that any trip will be easily memorable.
However, visiting during the Mexican summer might allow you to experience Carnival, Cinco de Mayo, Festival de Mexico and even the Christmas season. During this time you can experience the vibrancy of Mexican art and culture.
4. Trip financing
One of the biggest reasons that people visit Mexico is to have an amazing holiday at a cheap price.
Depending on your home country’s currency, the Mexican peso can be quite affordable and even one that would allow you to book the more premium or luxury options with ease.
This is one of the major reasons why Mexico is a famous tourist destination among those living in North America.
Preparing for any international trip can be hard but going to a more affordable place is practical since you can buy more things to make your trip comfortable such as a private boat tour just for your family.
5. Food scene
The food scene in Mexico just might be the next best part of visiting Mexico after the beaches.
If you have never had Mexican food before then you are in for an amazing journey and if you have then you are about to taste the difference authenticity makes.
Our best recommendation is to visit restaurants where you see locals eating and that might even include sanitary street vendors.
All in all, there are many reasons to visit Mexico and these are just some that we find the most compelling.
Do your research and plan in detail around everything you have to do but don’t forget to relax, recharge and enjoy before you return!
