7 Reasons Why a Vacation to Mexico is a Good Idea
A Vacation to Mexico is Economical
Aren’t we always looking for destinations that are not only fun but economical too? Look no further! In Mexico, you will find economical accommodation, cheap yet delicious street food (read about how to avoid food poisoning in Mexico), and value for money in everything. So yes, you can travel to Mexico without spending a considerable amount of time waiting to gather just enough cash. Budget travelers love Mexico.
Mexico is Full of Friendly Locals
You would think that the locals hardly matter and cannot impact your vacation in any way. But that is far from the reality. If you have ever been to a place where unwelcomes stares follow you around and you get rude replies to your queries then you would know how locals can actually ruin the entire vacation experience. After Sri Lanka, Mexico has the friendliest and most happy-go-lucky locals as per my experience. Mexicans truly define the quote, “Live each day as if it is your last”. You will see smiling faces all around in the country and Mexicans really go out of their way to help tourists.
Mexico Has Stunning Beaches
Mexico is home to some of the most picturesque and gorgeous beaches. And the resorts developed around the beaches only add to the fun. You can simply relax at the beach or enjoy the activities at the resorts, the choice is wholly yours to make.
There are plenty of water activities at the beaches including snorkeling, scuba diving, jet-skiing, fishing and surfing. Some of the most stunning beaches in Mexico are found in Cozumel, Cancun and Tulum.
Mexico Has a Rich History
Mexico has a rich history and most of it is dominated by the Mayans who left many of their remains behind serving as a reminder of what life was back in 2600 BC. This Mesoamerican Civilization has been a subject of fascination for all visitors in Mexico. The best archaeological sites can be found in Tulum. And the top historical places not to be missed are Teotihuacan, Monte Alban, Uxmal, Palenque and Chichen Itza. It is no surprise that history buffs love Mexico!
A Vacation to Mexico Equals Lots of Mexican Cuisine
Sure you must have heard of tacos and quesadillas but these two dishes are only a small part of the Mexican cuisine. You will find a different variety in North Mexico, a completely different one in Central Mexico and the most delicious one in Southeastern Mexico. Oh and the Mexican street food is heavenly. There’s also plenty of vegan food in Mexico!
Communication is Easy
While English may not be the mother tongue of Mexicans, it is still rather easy to communicate in Mexico because almost everyone understands the basic words. In touristy areas, some locals have even gotten fluent in English. So you don’t have to use sign language or get a headache getting your message across.
Mexico Has Great Weather
The weather remains vacation friendly almost throughout the year in Mexico. Average temperatures in the country remain somewhere between 20 to 30 degrees.
