Mexico is one of the most well-known countries in the southern part of North America and the third-largest country in Latin America. It is also one of the most colourful and culture-rich places in the world and it’s largely known for its unforgettable cuisine (and vibrant drinks, too!), loud parties and, of course, the beaches. THE gorgeous beaches, the main reason tourists start planning their Mexico holidays!
The most popular Mexico tourist attractions include Cancún, Tulum, Chichén Itzá, Mexico City (the capital), Playa del Carmen, Puerto Vallarta and Oaxaca, among others. If you’re planning a visit, get ready for lots of dancing to Latin music, spicy food, tons of tequila, beautifully preserved ancient ruins and endless miles of golden sand. But beware – Mexico is a destination that’s really hard to forget! Are you ready?
If you’re excited to travel to Mexico soon, it’s time to start packing, my friends! In order to help you out, I recommend checking out all my articles about this unique country down below.
Mexico’s currency is the Mexican peso (MXN). 1 USD is equivalent to around 20 Mexican pesos.
The national language spoken in Mexico is Spanish and it is used by the vast majority of residents. However, the Mexican government recognises no less than 68 national languages, such as Yucatec Maya or Nahuatl. All national languages are valued equally here!
Although the country doesn’t have an official faith, the major religion in Mexico is Roman Catholicism.
The best time to visit Mexico is from December to April, during the dry season.
Good news! No visa is required to enter Mexico if your stay is shorter than 180 days.
No vaccines are officially required for entering Mexico. However, for your own health and safety, make sure you’re up to date with all your routine vaccines.
I recommend buying a SIM card upon your arrival at the airport in Mexico. The 3 best companies for tourists are Movistar, AT&T and Telcel. Out of the three, Telcel has the best 4G network coverage.
