Mexico Travel

Mexico’s varied landscapes have attracted visitors since the arrival of the very first Spanish ships. And with beach escapes on two coasts – the surfing spots of the Pacific and the lagoon-like waters of the Caribbean Sea – who can blame them? But beyond the likes of Acapulco, the Yucatan Peninsula is awash with Mayan temples and freshwater sinkholes. These cenotes are just one reason to step into jungles still home to jaguars, spider monkeys and colorful birdlife. Further south, you’ll discover deserts that led to the creation of tequila, while right across the country there’s street food so good the world has adopted it as its own.
