Have you visited Mexico? Well before I did, I had no idea what to expect! I didn’t realize how much I was going to like this country…and as it turns out, I love Mexico! Even if you just go for the mouthwatering good food, you’ll find so much more to like I promise. Read on for the top 10 reasons to visit Mexico!
- Las cervezas
The beers in Mexico are plentiful and diverse. Many beers are produced here so you’ll have your pick of many tasty varieties. See how many different kinds you can try while here!
- Colorful buildings
The tendency towards a rainbow-esque coordination on any given street is pleasing to the eye. I think this color scheme should be used more liberally everywhere, in fact! Just walking around and wandering will always be a beautiful experience here in Mexico.
Mexico City is the oldest and largest city in the Americas. It was one of the very first places that was settled in the Americas and holds a lot of historical significance. Throughout the country you have many opportunities to visit different Mayan ruins and take in the ancient glory of these native peoples.
- The landscapes
Any trip outside the major cities will lead you through stunning landscapes. An adventurous traveler may choose to hike through the Sierra Madres mountains. But even if you’re only driving through, you’ll want to have your camera poised and ready because the landscapes are stunning!
- VW punch buggies
As one of the largest and longest standing producers of the VW bug, Mexico displays this car on every street and in nearly every driveway. The cool vintage bugs add a dynamic element of style to this country. Just be careful because a “punch buggy no punch back” game could lead to some serious bruising here!
- The enthusiastic spirit
In just one week I witnessed two political demonstrations! The Mexican people are enthusiastic and passionate, not willing to sit by while an injustice unfolds. The demonstrations were perfectly safe, but they were a great reminder of the spirit of these people.
- Street food
Skip the restaurants and just hit the street food stands for the absolute best food! From beef tostadas to fish tacos, breakfast tortillas con queso and even octopus tacos, the food here will absolutely blow you away.
- The beaches
Pacific coast and Atlantic coast, the Mexican beaches are definitely worth a visit! There is great variety in the mood of the beaches though, from crowded craziness in Cancun to peaceful and understated in Puerto Escondido. You have many great options for Mexican beaches, and should consider whether surfing, scuba, or just tanning are on your agenda before choosing.
In the highly Catholic community of Mexico, churches are abundant and beautiful. Be sure to visit the major church in each city you visit, as they are sure to impress with their European-style magnitude.
- The people
Without a doubt, the most wonderful part of visiting Mexico is meeting and getting to know the people here! I experienced nothing short of friendly, welcoming, and helpful people every step of the way. Come see for yourself!
