The jaguar, a native mammal of Mexico
From historic ruins to brazen seaside resorts, Mexico is a clash of styles and cultures. It’s this unexpected dichotomy that proves a popular draw with all types of tourists, from history enthusiasts and eco-tourists to young honeymooners and party-loving students.
Many planning a trip to Mexico begin with the capital city. Mexico City – the oldest capital city in the New World – is overcrowded, polluted and very, very busy. It is in the top 20 of most populous cities in the world after all. Visitors will soon forget these shortcomings when they realize just what’s on offer here. As well as featuring a host of modern amenities and some of the finest architecture in the world, Mexico City’s rich history is on display at every corner. From the National Anthropology Museum – which houses the largest collection of Mesoamerican artifacts in the world – to Templo Mayor (the Great Temple) at the heart of the city, visitors will find plenty to amaze.
Mexico’s rich history isn’t limited to Mexico City though. Visitors can partake in trips to any number of ancient sites, many of which feature pyramids and temples that are still very much intact. These include Monte Albán, on the Pacific coast close to Acapulco; El Tajin in Veracruz; and Tulum on the Yucatan Peninsula.
Mexico’s most famed archaeological site though is Chichén Itzá, a UNESCO World Heritage Site also found on the Yucatan Peninsula. While visitors can no longer climb its high pyramid due to conservation concerns, the Mayan site – which is the best preserved in known existence – offers a wonderful taste of the historic culture of the region.
Those preferring some fun in the sun should include the likes of Acapulco, Cancun or Tijuana on their Mexico trip plan. Acapulco – perhaps Mexico’s most famous resort city – lies on the Pacific Coast. Cancun, a popular destination with American college students enjoying Spring Break, can be found on the Yucatan Peninsula. Tijuana is located close to the Mexico-U.S. border, making it a popular locale for weekend breaks. All three feature more than enough sunshine and entertainment.
