Why Should You Visit Mexico In 2018

With its overflowing natural beauty, inviting tropical islands, Caribbean coastline, colorful culture and top-notch cuisine, there is no surprise why Mexico has always been a top tourist destination.

Here are a few more reasons why Mexico should be on your destination list this year:

The people

More than the beautiful sites, what makes any vacation truly more memorable are the people you encounter. And the locals of Mexico are one to remember—friendly, warm and welcoming. Many are willing to go out of their way to assist a tourist in need of help.

The affordability

The country is filled with globally renowned and top-notch tourist destinations. And the good news is that you can experience many of them without having to empty your bank account or sell your properties. The daily travel expenses such as food, drinks, and transportation are manageable. You can enjoy a hearty, heavy meal for cheap if you’re adventurous enough to try street food and eat like locals do. You also have plenty of affordable accommodation options especially if you’re traveling with a group.

The beaches

With a coastline spanning over 9,000 kilometers, Mexico has plenty of idyllic beaches to explore. Each year, tourists from all over the world visit the country’s world-class resorts. Enjoy the turquoise waters and lively crowd of Cancun, party in hip Playa del Carmen, or soak up some history and visit archeological sites in between swims in Tulum. Whether you’re in the mood for a party or a quiet escape, Mexico has a beach to suit your preference.

The food

Delicious is an understatement when it comes to Mexican cuisine. Tasty, vibrant, varied and simply irresistible. If you are one of the few who isn’t already a fan of tacos, tamales, carnitas, tortas, and quesadillas, then one trip to the city can definitely convert you. You don’t have to dine in fancy restaurants for a flavorful dish. In Mexico, street food rules. It is a great way to get acquainted with the diverse cuisine and put a little more spice into your diet. Remember to put elotes, gorditas, tostadas, and tostilocos on your must-eat list!

The culture and history

Do you have an insatiable thirst for history and nature? Are you on a mission to visit as many UNESCO heritage sites as you can? If so, consider starting your journey in Mexico. With an incredibly diverse natural and cultural heritage, Mexico serves as home to the most heritage sites than any country in the continent. Each of the 34 UNESCO World Heritage Sites is worth a visit. Sian Ka’an, Chichen-Itza, Whale Sanctuary of El Vizcaino, Historic Centre of Mexico City and Xochimilco, Agave Landscape and Ancient Industrial Facilities of Tequila, Historic Town of Guanajuato and the Pre-Hispanic Town of Uxmal are among our top picks

The natural wonders

The sheer size of Mexico is a telltale sign of its diverse ecosystems. Be it landscapes, valleys, flora and fauna, the country has definitely a lot to offer.

The newest offers

  • The ancient city of Ichkabal, the newest excavated Mayan ruins near Costa Maya, is set to open for the world to see in 2018. First discovered in 1995, the archaeological site is said to have towers taller than the famous Chichen Itza and Coba.
