Mexico is well-known for allowing tourists to explore the tropical beaches of Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve and the enchanting Mayan Port City Ruins along with many more natural and man-made wonders. In Mexico, you can expect to visit a country teeming with culture in the forms of big cities, smaller towns, and more secluded areas, suitable for almost any tourist looking for a getaway.
For many people who visit Mexico, the adventure starts when they walk around the vibrant city or go on a day trip to one of the smaller towns, to truly be at one with the culture. The streets are home to beautiful murals to enjoy, and if you want to explore another side of Mexico, the country has some beautiful mountains that are open for hiking as well.
A trip to Mexico can be whatever you make it, with warm weather for most of the year and friendly locals to welcome you to the country, what more could you ask for? One of the most talked about aspects of Mexico is their cuisine, the vibrant street food markets offer the favourite classic dishes you’d expect, such as tacos and enchiladas, that are bursting with all the right flavours.
Mexico is a paradise to those that visit, this is highlighted by the beautiful and unusual marine life that lives on this country’s shorelines. You may be lucky enough to see grey whales along the Baja coast if the conditions are right. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous with your tourist activities, you can even get up close and personal with the marine life and cage-dive into the ocean.
Mexico’s official language is Spanish. But, on your travels you will find that most of the locals speak English. However, in some of the smaller towns and cities, you may find that they don’t speak English well or at all, so try to learn some basic Spanish if you are planning on travelling to more rural areas of Mexico. Before you travel, be sure to change your currency to Mexican peso.
No matter what plans you have whilst visiting Mexico, it is important to take out travel insurance for Mexico to protect yourself against many unforeseen eventualities.
