Mexico is as rich in archaeological interest as it is in beaches. 6000 miles of shoreline and powder-white beaches make Mexico a true beach lover’s paradise, while those interested in history and artefact can indulge their inner Indiana Jones and explore the famous Mayan ruins. On one side of the country, there’s warm Pacific waters and jungle landscape, and on the other, stunning Caribbean coast and fabulous coral reefs.
Watersports like surfing, sea kayaking and diving are popular and plentiful, and if you’re a scuba diver you shouldn’t miss the world’s largest underwater installation; over 400 unique life-size statues stand at depths between 9 and 20 feet in Cancun. For the intrepid adventurer, a visit to the Temple of Kukulcan at Chichen Itza is a must, an incredible stepped pyramid built by the Mayans.
Mexican cuisine tops many ‘favourite food’ lists, and there’s no better place to indulge than in the country itself. Street food is a huge attraction and can provide some of the best options. Corn, beans and chilli peppers are the basic staples of most Mexican dishes, complemented with meat, cheese and herbs and spices the authentic taste of many of our favourite dishes: tacos, enchiladas, tostadas, quesadillas and burritos.
