More than 5000 miles of stunning coastline, encompassing tropical beaches, sapphire blue Caribbean waters, a vast array of marine life, ranging from regal whale sharks, frightening great white sharks, giant turtles to gargantuan blue whales, and much, much more. Along with 67 national parks, which include arid deserts, idyllic rivers, imposing mountains, the world’s largest system of underwater caves, filled with unique rock formations that will take your breath away, jungle wildernesses, which are home to exotic creatures, and a plethora of amazing historical sites from the Aztecs, the Mayans and so many more. Mexico is a vast country with a multitude of jaw-dropping sites, which will remain with you for the rest of your life.
Mexico was colonised by nomadic Indians as they spread out across North America, developing into more fixed societies, around 8000 BC. These spawned a huge range of incredible civilisations including the Olmecs, the Zapotecs, the Mayans and the Aztecs. As a tourist in Mexico, you will find a continent masquerading as a country, with a huge array of natural diversity, a rich cultural heritage, amazing food and much, much more.

Cenote Dzitnup or Cenote Angelita are underwater treasure troves, which will set the pulses of any scuba diving enthusiast racing; the “Frozen Waterfalls” of Hierve El Agua, cascading timelessly down to the river below or the Agua Azul Waterfalls where three rivers meet to form a turquoise gem shouldn’t be missed; the crystal clear waters of Cancun; the multitude of amazing pyramids, with Teotihuacan, a particular highlight; Baja California, where whales come to breed and play; the surreal festival of the radishes at Oaxaca, held at Christmas time, where locals carve radishes into a myriad of incredible sculptures; acres of golden sands; cosmopolitan Mexico City, dotted with the green, red and white tricolour; and many, more too numerous to detail here.

Sounds 4

The call of street sellers, horse carts bumping across rough streets, the angry honking of traffic filled Mexico City; the sweet call of whales; the song of rainbow-coloured exotic birds; the gentle hush of golden windswept beaches; traditional guitar and trumpet based ranchera music; men strumming instruments in sombreros; South American influenced Reggaetón, which you can throw some shapes to, and so much more.

Smells 4

Chilli, garlic and paprika cooking somewhere; tortillas baking, in a hot oven; hot chocolate, roasting on a stove somewhere; leather hanging in the air, a reminder that the wild west didn’t finish in California; exotic flowers; jungles teaming with life; salty-fresh sea air; dry sandy deserts; the lack of oxygen, and emptiness of the air in the highest capital city in the world.

Tastes 4

Crunchy tacos oozing with grilled beef; soft tortillas, filled with rice; fresh green guacamole and spicy salsa; bright yellow corn dripping with butter; ice-cold gazpacho the perfect way to refresh yourself in the heat; protein-rich beans, used in pretty much any way that you can imagine; tequila served in shot glasses or margaritas with salt-encrusted glasses, and invigorating lime juice; Huevas Rancheros, a spicy scrambled egg popular at breakfast; quesadillas, covered in melted cheese; ice-cold cervezas (beer), the list could go on forever.

Mexico feels bigger than it is (which is pretty remarkable, given its size), but it really is a continent masquerading as a country: possessing more natural diversity than the vast majority of places on earth. A welcoming and fun place, where you can find huge mountains, whales’ playgrounds, underwater caves and much, much more.
