TOP 10 REASONS TO VISIT MEXICO IN 2018
1. BEACHES, BEACHES, and MORE BEACHES
There is no denying the beauty of the beaches in Mexico. From the fabulous and famous beaches of Cancun to pristine coastlines in Cabo San Lucas – there is no shortage of fine sand and sun tan beds. This also means unreal sunrises or sunsets, clear blue skies, and vast starry starry nights from your private balcony.
2. UNDERWATER MUSEUM (MUSA)
If you are looking for a more unique experience, start with the Underwater Museum (MUSA). Seeing life-sized and monumental statues underwater is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience. All of the sculptures are fixed to the seabed and made from specialized materials used to promote coral life. No diving experiences required – there’s a glass bottom boat for those who want to stay dry. But scuba is the way to go for an up close, exclusive and personal experience.
Have you ever seen those movie scenes where the character is unknowingly walking through the jungle when all of a sudden the ground gives way from under then the next thing you know you’re swimming through clear water in an underground cave? These swimming holes or secret underground caverns are called ‘cenotes’ and Mexico has at least 7,000 of them. For the ultimate adventure, book a private cenote visit; grab a friend and start cliff jumping! (or just walk down)
4. CABO SAN LUCAS
I decided to give Cabo San Lucas its own place since everything about it is worth the visit. From the Fisherman’s village to the rock Arch formations at Land’s End, it offers one of the best sailing and catamaran experiences. From your private yacht, enjoy the ocean breeze from one formation to the next. It is a popular destination for the rich and famous definitely for a good reason.
5. ISLA MUJERES
One of the most popular day-trips from Cancun along with Tulum, Isla Mujeres is a paradise in itself. Known by its stretch of gorgeous beaches, water activities, turtle farm and vacation atmosphere – it will definitely cater to the young and young at heart in us.
6. EXPERIENCE XCARET PARKS
Xcaret Parks are popular and sought-after Mexican adventure theme parks. Xcaret, Xel-ha, Xplor, Xoximilco, Xenses and Xenotes are the different branches of the company. Having land and water adventures all in one place, it is definitely one of the most convenient and action-packed experiences in Mexico!
Tulum is another popular day trip in Mexico. Although flocked by tourists, the preserved ancient Mayan ruins and beaches are definitely worth a trip. It also has beautiful eco-parks and mangroves. Tulum offers an array of activities for all ages.
8. CHICHEN ITZA
Named one of the Seven Wonders of the World, El Castillo in Chichen Itza is a must-visit. This pyramid-shaped archeological site was once part of the powerful Mayan Civilization. The ruins create a surreal experience of the political and historical significance of the Mayan culture.
9. FRIDA KAHLO MUSEUM
Frida Kahlo’s art and life is a huge part of Mexico’s history. Her works are a symbolism of courage and boldness for women everywhere in the world. The Frida Kahlo Museum showcases some of her most influential works and artifacts along with stories of women empowerment and societal growth.
10. CULINARY EXPERIENCE
Aside from the natural wonders in Mexico, the culinary scene is just as colourful if not more. The bright flavours, savoury sauces and hearty dishes encompass a bulk of Mexican cuisine. Like any other cuisines, it is better to try it from the source – so this alone is an experience of its own.
