Mexico is one of those unique places that attracts visitors from all over the world looking for culture, great beaches and amazing food. Exotic, tropical and exciting, yet familiar enough and easy to travel to, Mexico has all the ingredients for an amazing vacation.
Mexico has risen in popularity over the last 20 or 30 years thanks to better direct flight routes to the USA and Canada. Mexico is very convenient for North American visitors and the Mexican culture has so much to offer, while also delivering the comforts and quality that are expected.
The wonderful thing about visiting Mexico on vacation is the array of cultural, geographical, gastronomical and historical experiences that await you. From folkloric dancing, indigenous tribal ceremonies, Mayan ruins to tacos, mariachi and tequila, there are so many attractions that make Mexico a unique country to visit.
However, one of the most spectacular assets that Mexico has to offer are its stunning beaches that compete with the best in the world.
