MEXICO

From charming colonial towns to dreamy beaches, from tasty tacos to delicious mezcal, from Indiana-Jones-like exploring to thrilling adventures – Mexico has it all!

We traveled around Mexico for 6 weeks – all the way from Mexico City to Yucatan peninsula – and had so much fun! We wandered around colorful markets, caught stunning sunsets, marveled at the beauty of cenotes, listened to mariachi, tried all kinds of mezcals, got our PADI cerfiticate and more.

4 DAYS IN MEXICO CITY: A PERFECT ITINERARY FOR FIRST TIMERS

Mexico City (aka CDMX, Cuidad de Mexico) is the capital of Mexico, usually visited by fewer travelers than more popular Yucatan peninsula.
