Travel Guide: Mexico

Cerro de la Silla Monterrey Cerro de la Silla Monterrey

Mexico is a diverse place, and has a lot to offer to travellers. Whether you decide to visit the beautiful beaches famous around the world, historical cities from the time of the Spanish colony and archeological sites of cultures such as the Maya, Olmeca and Azteca among others, beautiful national parks in deserts, mountains and forests, or just hang out in one of the modern cities, you will enjoy it.

Highlights in Mexico are the capital city of Mexico City, Monterrey, with its beautiful colonial buildings and Guadalajara.  For colonial cities one should visit  Oaxaca,  Morelia, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Queretaro, San Luis Potosi, Zacatecas, Aguascalientes, Merida in the  Yucatan peninsula, among others.

 For beaches, some of the best, most unspoiled are located on the Oaxaca coast, particularly Zipolite and Puerto Escondido. Cancun, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen located at the Riviera Maya,  Mazatlan, Manzanillo, Ixtapa and Puerto Vallarta among others, are the place to be for all fun loving creatures. The peninsula of Yucatan offers an ideal mix of Maya culture, great weather and some of the world's best snorkeling and diving in places such as Cozumel and Cancun located at the Riviera Maya. For a truly Mexican experience, the city of San Cristobal de las Casas in Chiapas offers a view of the indigenous Mayan peoples in a beautiful colonial city. Los Cabos in Baja California Sur has been a favourite get-away for Mexicans and Americans for years.

Archeological sites in Mexico are vast, one should keep in mind Teotihuacan, Chichen Itza, Palenque, El Tajin and Monte Alban among just a few.

For those looking for an active vacation, Mexico offers golf courses, scuba diving and lots of mountains to go hiking in, including cloud rainforest in Chiapas.

Refrain from visiting the Northern parts of Mexico near the California border at night, or just in general. Also take care in Mexico City in the evenings. Southern and Central Mexico are beautiful and much more culturally accurate.

If you visit northern Mexico, Chihuahua offers amazing sightings. Go to chihuahua City, Cuauhtemoc, Anahuac, Delicias. The copper Canyon, the Basaseachic waterfall, the Arareco lake are great places to rest while in the mountains.

Question: #5: Should Americans boycott Mexico?? I'm against illegal immigration but have encouraged travel to Mexico-help?
I've been strongly against illegal immigration to the US but have encouraged many Americans to vacation in (Cozumel)Mexico (you can check my answers)-am I just confused, correct in my seemingly conflicted views or nuts? Would an American travel boycott of Mexico (and maybe Mexican products) force their government and their wealthy elite to raise wages and create a better standard of living for the average Mexican in their homeland (thus reducing the need/desire to come to the US),or, would it have the opposite effect by causing more economic hardship to the "average Jose" thus increasing illegal immigration into the US? - asked by porthuronbilliam

Answer: I don't know if boycotting US travel to Mexico would help or simply backfire, causing even more Mexicans to feel the need to run to the USA illegally to work. However, I am sure that US tourism to Mexico ... - answered by: Daisy
