Top 10 Best Places to Visit in Mexico
Tourists in Mexico are part of their culture, starting from the Spanish conquest led by famous Hernán Cortés, in the 15th century. People often say that New York is the city that never sleeps, but I doubt that there is a more active city in comparison with Mexico City.
Here is our list of top 10 places to visit in Mexico:
Puerto Vallarta is a fantastic tourist destination on the western coast of Mexico in the Bay of Banderas, which is one of the largest bays in the world. Nature is here almost the perfect combination of healthy green mountains that seems to rise from the Pacific Ocean, unlike the east coast, which has only to offer a Caribbean turquoise sea and to many Americans and Europeans.
This island is hidden behind large and luxurious resorts of Cancun. It is not interesting for high class tourism and government of Quintana Roo. Accessible only by boat, the island is for decades in the shadow of the famous Mexican resort on the Riviera Maya, such as Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Akumal, Tulum, etc. That is exactly what makes this island special and specific. It has incredible energy that you can experience, the untouched nature, beautiful beaches, cheerful and smiling people, reggae ton and salsa parties that last late into the night.
In Cancun, the sea has turquoise color, just as the photos are showing, infinitely long beach’s with almost white sand, water is pleasant for swimming, night life is “crazy” while the staff in hotels and shops are very polite… Enough for everyone to, while packing bags to return home, think about coming again. Cancun is located in the southeast of the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. It is located on the Yucatan Peninsula, on the coast of the Caribbean Sea.
Tulum National Park
The Tulum National Park is located in the eponymous town of Maya’s. Tulum, which in the Mayan language means wall, is surrounded on three sides by walls, high about six meters, with five gates, while the fourth side is open to the sea. This is otherwise a rarity, since Mayan cities were not defended by walls. On the south-west and the north end of the wall were built observation towers. Near the north wall is located the little lake of groundwater, Canute, from which residents are supplied with drinking water. The city was built 4,000 years ago when in it lived 10,000 inhabitants.
There are very few people who miss the opportunity to visit the archaeological site of the UNESCO list – Chichen Itza, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Great step pyramid, Mayan Temple of Kukulcán, also known as El Castillo, built according to the solar calendar, is the favorite background of the photographs of tourists.
