Why visit?

Situated right beneath the USA, Mexico has so much to offer with history, culture and of course the sun. If you’re looking to experience the Mexican way of life then explore the many cities, often surrounded by some very impressive street art. If you’re more interested in lounging at the beach under the sun then you’re spoiled for choice. Whether you looking for a busy city stop or a relaxing rest, Mexico has everything covered.  


Five things to experience:


1. Mexico City Museums: Mexico City is one of the busiest and most exciting cities in the world with so much to offer. And one of the things on offer is an almost endless number of museums dealing with history, art, politics and sport just to name a few. Mexico City has more museums than any other city in the entire world so if you’re looking to learn, there quite possibly couldn’t be a better place. 


2. Street Art: Mexico has enjoyed some incredible art over the years but even today across the streets of Mexico’s many cities you can find some of the best contemporary street art the world has to offer. Street art is very much encouraged and celebrated within Mexican culture so be sure to stop and take a moment to appreciate the colourful urban landscapes of Mexico. 


3. Cancun Beaches: If you’re looking for a more relaxed holiday, Mexico still has you covered. Cancun is famous for their many beaches and is a very popular holiday escape even for those living in Mexico. There are many luxury and modestly-priced hotels alongside the clean and scenic beachfront.


4. Aztec and Mayan history: Mexico has a very rich history that is restored through thousands of Aztec and Mayan ruins that are spread across the country; often displaying some impressive historical architecture. The most famous of these is the Chichen Itza, a Mayan pyramid that can be found in Yucatan. 


5. Natural Landscapes: If you’re not interested in the city or a holiday resort, Mexico will leave you spoiled for choice if you’re looking to immerse yourself in nature. The Sierra Norte mountains are incredibly impressive and located completely off the beaten path.  Furthermore, Mexico is home to the Hierve el Agua, one of only two petrified waterfalls in the world and a recipe for a truly jaw-dropping view.  


Happy travels!
