Central Mexico and Gulf Coast

4.5
Once the core of a powerful Aztec empire, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast now contains some of the country's most popular tourist destinations, offering a blend of coastal and inland activities. Most Central Mexico and Gulf Coast holidays understandably involve stops at sandy beaches, but if you wish to enrich your experience with a bit of culture and history, don't miss Guanajuato City and Veracruz. While exploring these cities, you can museum hop, get to know the country's arts and music scene, discover numerous historic buildings, and mingle with ex-pats from Canada and the United States. For that ultimate Central Mexico and Gulf Coast sightseeing experience, spend some time exploring the region's World Heritage-listed archaeological sites.
