Mexico travel guide

4.5
Tailor-made for anyone seeking that traditional sun-and-sand experience, Mexico vacations allow visitors to explore nearly 10,000 km (6,200 mi) of picturesque coastlines. Idyllic beaches and favorable year-round weather aside, this diverse country with a rich pre-Colombian history allows tourists a chance to discover a fascinating cuisine, numerous archaeological sites, state-of-the-art museums, colonial-era haciendas, and outstanding examples of 21st-century architecture. Most visitors get to know the country by its cities, but if you want a well-rounded Mexico tour, spend some time exploring its jungles, cloud forests, Caribbean reefs, snowcapped volcanoes, vast deserts, and tranquil lagoons. Life is lived outdoors in Mexico, so wherever you go, don't forget to dine alfresco and stroll the country's colonial streets.

Geologic Formations · Landmarks · Wineries & Vineyards
At the very center of Mexico, the tiny state of Queretaro encompasses a range of ecosystems, from arid deserts to tropical rainforests. A trip to Queretaro reveals a compact area once controlled by the powerful Aztec Empire, which now contains mostly small towns, agricultural villages, and family-run ranches. Despite its small size, this state is packed with pleasant surprises, from historically significant sites and wildlife-rich biosphere reserves, to major pre-Columbian ruins. One of the most popular places to visit in Queretaro is La Pena de Bernal, one of the world's tallest and oldest monoliths, formed by natural forces at least 60 million years ago.

Granary of the Republic
With well over a third of its area suitable for agriculture, Guanajuato remains the "Granary of the Republic" as a major producer of corn, beans, sorghum, barley, and wheat. A tour of Guanajuato allows you to trace the "Bicentennial Route," originally followed by an insurgent army led by Miguel Hidalgo, one of the leaders of Mexican struggle for independence. Other popular things to do in Guanajuato include exploring historical haciendas and mines, attending local festivals, and visiting the state's thriving cities. Start in the World Heritage-listed eponymous capital, known for its cobblestoned streets, pleasant plazas, and unusual underground roadways.
