Mexico City is a vibrant capital with rich food and culture.

Mexico Travel Guide

Mexico has a robust culture and delicious food to die for. Seriously, Taco Bell and Chipotle are a joke compared to the culinary masterpieces coming out of Mexico. For true foodies, Mexico City is the place to be. Not only is there a rich food culture, but the capital city also has one of the largest food markets in the world.

For those looking to relax at a resort, Cancun and Los Cabos are wonderful choices. You can find great party scenes and nightlife. But you can also chill on the beach with a fruity cocktail. The choice is yours.

Destinations

The Best Time to Visit

Cancun is known for its stunning beaches and luxury resorts.

Mexico has beaches, deserts, jungles, and mountains. When you go depends on where you go. Beachgoers should avoid hurricane season. Instead, shoot for November to April. It’s the dry season so the coast will be sunny and less humid. But it can get cool at night farther inland.

If you plan to go to the jungle and mountains, go during winter. You won’t have to deal with rain or humidity on your hike. Summer is hot and wet, so it can be a little uncomfortable.
