Bienvenidos A Mexico!

mexico smallMexico…a country with attractions so infinitely diverse, that it makes deciding on what to do and where to visit extremely difficult. Much like a gift that keeps on giving, in Mexico you'll find everything; modern luxury resorts, untouched natural reserves, gorgeous beaches, and fascinating ancient sites. So pack your bags and come join us as we tour through Mexico's attractions and explore some of what it has to offer.

A good place to start would be at the heart of the nation, it’s capital; Mexico City. Here ancient ruins and temples meet modern buildings and shopping attractions. But for Mexico City's top site, visit the National Museum of Anthropology. A place filled with numerous rooms that house archaeological artifacts from the numerous ancient cultures in Mexico. Though best appreciated by taking a walking tour, you can still hop on the Turibus and continue to enjoy the sights if your feet get tired. Feeling peckish? Head to the Hosteria Santo Domingo and enjoy a great meal filled with flavors you never knew existed.

Leaving the urban life behind, let’s move on to water adventures! In Mexico, there are lots of opportunities to get your adrenaline rushing. You can learn to surf or enjoy a bird's eye view of the beach and ocean as you parasail. Furthermore, just off the Riviera Maya, lies the world's second largest coral reef, making it a perfect destination for scuba diving or snorkeling. However, for a snorkeling experience unlike any other, snorkel at the Underwater Museum of Art, home of more than 200 eerie, life-size concrete figures that form an unforgettable artificial reef.

Finally, we arrive to culture rich and historic Mexico. Mexico's colonial period witnessed great destruction, but also gave rise to art and architecture. Many cities in Mexico retain their colonial town plan, cobblestone streets and beautiful colonial architecture. Mexico was also home to some of the world's great ancient civilizations; the Olmecs, Zapotecas, Mayas and Aztecs. All of  which have left their unique imprint on the land and history. Visiting their cities and temples never fail to fill the visitor with wonder. From Mayan archaeological sites such as Yucatan Peninsula and Chichen Itza to breathtaking temples like Templo Mayor and Teotihuacan.

At the end of our tour, one thought lingers. With a place such as Mexico with everything to offer, why not go out there and experience it first hand!
