Mexico offers such a wide range of attractions that it is the perfect location for holidaymakers of all preferences. Sandy beaches and azure blue oceans along the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific coast
attract millions of tourists each year to sunbathe, surf and explore the diverse wildlife. Mexico’s mix a well-preserved indigenous past and contemporary European history invite culture enthusiasts.
And the huge array of resorts, spicy food, music and colourful festivals never fail to delight families, couples and partygoers, alike.
Those of you who want to enjoy Mexico’s most beautiful coast, interesting history and delightful nature must head to the Yucatan Peninsula to the far east. The region enjoys warm weather for
most of the year and is full of exciting attractions, such as impressive Mayan ruins (including the world-famous Chichén Itzá), the second-largest coral reef in the world at Riviera Maya, and the
stunning beaches of Cancún.
Tourists looking for a quieter trip or who want to explore off the beaten path can head to the lesser visited north of the country. The lower areas have an arid climate for those wanting to soak up the
sun, while adventure lovers can explore the high, chilly mountain hikes.
Wherever you choose to focus your trip, most visitors will likely pass through Mexico City at some point, and the capital is worth your time. The capital is 2,300m above sea level and, so, is much
cooler than the coastal areas. This makes it far more comfortable to explore its historic centre, where visitors can get a microcosmic view of the country’s rich history. Also, the city is centrally
positioned, making it a great base to explore nearby colonial towns where visitors can experience a more genuine Mexico. It is also the best place to go to appreciate the country’s many festivals and
carnivals, including the vibrant and creative Day of the Dead.
Mexico is a large country with high mountain plateaus, dense rainforest and tropical beaches. Consequently, its climate varies quite dramatically between its many regions. Generally, rainfall is
near non-existent between December and April. The winter months are cooler, although you will still enjoy temperatures at sea level around the mid-twenties. By May/June, Mexico’s wet season begins
and lasts until October/November. June to November is also hurricane season. While the Caribbean coast tends to take the biggest hit, the hurricanes can affect the Pacific side of the country, too.
Restaurant prices in Mexico City are about two-thirds lower than London and can be even cheaper outside the capital and popular resorts. A cheap lunch can cost as little as 85 pesos (~£3.20) while a
more upmarket three-course meal for two will average 500 pesos (~£18.75). Beer ranges from 40 to 60 pesos on average (£1.50-£2.25), a coffee will cost approximately £1.40 and a bottle of water can
be bought for as little as 30-40p.
