Mexico places to visit
Mexico is an ideal vacation country to combine a beach vacation and to visit some amazing sites such as the Maya Ruins. The beaches are amazing in Mexico. If you just want a relaxing beach vacation, then Mexico could be your choice.
The times we visited Mexico we were quite exhausted and spent most of the time on the beach. We also had a lay-over in Mexico City for one night. This would not be a city to spend your vacation. It is very crowed, has a high pollution and safety is of a concern. A one-day tour of Mexico city should do it, and then it is on our opinion better to go to another, more beautiful place in Mexico.
Our first stay was in Cancun beach. The tourist hotels are all on the hotel strip in Cancun. In fact, you can almost see it as a different city. Read everything about Cancun. The city of Cancun is not worth spending a lot of time. If you ant to have an idea of how a Mexican city looks like, you can go to visit for a day.
The roads through the hotel strip are heavily guarded. Going out of the hotel strips require that you are more careful. It is a different story, and it would be better to limit your visit to the city during daylight.
Cabo San Lucas is for Europeans a longer flight as it is on the West coast. It is defiantly less busy than for example Cancun. It feels more like an exclusive vacation destination. It has beautiful scenery, which you might know from the move “Sex in the City” which was partly taped in Cabo San Lucas.
