Things to Do in Mexico
Mexico is an incredibly popular destination with visitors from all over the world, who flock to its beautiful sandy beaches and vine-covered Mayan pyramids. One of the most popular spots is the sun-drenched Mayan Riviera, where you will find the resort destinations of Playa del Carmen, Cancun and the island of Cozumel. This is the ultimate place for watersports, including scuba diving and snorkeling among coral reefs alive with vibrant fish.
Be sure not to miss the fascinating and atmospheric Mayan ruins, such as the huge pyramids and stone structures at Chichen Itza and Tulum. They are a captivating glance into the history of a powerful ancient kingdom.
While at Chichen Itza, pay close attention to the amazing Caracol – a 1,000 year old observatory that is designed with narrow slits to let the sun shine through on a particular day of the year so that priests could tell the date. Tulum is equally impressive – a Mayan fort poised on a windswept cliff overlooking the turquoise Caribbean Sea.
Mexico City should certainly be a stop on your travels in Mexico. It is the capital city and it is packed with culture and things to do, including art galleries, museums, dining and much more. Take a walk through the beautiful history city center and admire the collection of more than 1,400 colonial buildings from the 16th to 19th centuries.
If you enjoy wandering on foot through historic cities, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Guanajuato is a delight to explore. The old square Jardin de la Union is surrounded with lovely old architecture and you can even walk through the subterranean streets of the city – where a network of tunnels are used by pedestrians.
Guadalajara is also a fascinating Mexico destination – rich in culture and tradition. It is home to the Charreadas, which is a traditional rodeo that is traditionally accompanied with singing, dancing and plenty of delicious food.
Another place to head on your explorations of Mexico is Copper Canyon, one of the country’s most stunning natural attractions. In fact, it is deeper and larger than the Grand Canyon! It’s name comes from the striking copper green shade of the steep canyon walls and it was carved over millennia by the rushing Rio Fuerte. Take a hike through and marvel at it’s awe-inspiring beauty.
