Situated in North America, Mexico is famous for its warm weather, sunny beaches and fascinating history. Mexico is also a country of contrast, with huge cities, resort towns and tiny villages, and landscapes which include snowy mountains in the Sierras, jungles in the southeast, along with desert and beaches.
Mexico also has a wealth of art, architecture and archaeological sites, from ancient pyramids to world-class modern destinations. And, with over 10,000km of coastline, visitors can choose to swim in Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea or the Pacific Ocean.
Visiting Chichen Itza is on every traveller's bucket list. Situated within Mexico’s beautiful Yucatan Peninsula, Chichen Itza is the largest archaeological site from the pre-Columbian Maya civilization. Here's everything you need to know to visit this remarkable ancient city.
If you only have a few days to spend in Mexico, you should absolutely spend them in Mexico City. There’s nowhere else in Mexico that you can pack in as much culture, delicious food and sightseeing. There’s so much to do and see, you’re sure to be left wanting to come back for more.
Most of the destinations popular with travellers are safe, friendly and in beautiful settings. Saying that, there are some precautions you should take while travelling to Mexico. These include sticking to well-lit areas at night, not carrying excess cash on you and staying away from drugs during your visit (the majority of crime in the country is drug or cartel related).
