Exotic Holidays in Mexico

Whether you’re a party animal, history geek, gym freak, or even just a lazy sloth, Mexico provides all forms of holiday experience any traveller may look for. The 6000 miles of coastline, in the East at the Gulf of Mexico and the west at Pacific Ocean provide a huge array of beaches, and resorts each having their own experience and ways of keeping oneself busy. The Baja peninsula and the modern beach resorts at Cancun and Puerto Vallarta on the Pacific provide a luxurious vacation and social nightlife interacting with the country. The climate itself varies along the region from Mediterranean, to arid in the mainland deserts, mountainous and chilly in the north to tropical climate in the coasts, there is also enough variation for a traveller looking for adventure.

Mexico also hosts tremendous beaches and coastlines with great waves and breaks for surfing – in Oaxaca and Puerto Escondido. There are also numerous areas for historical sight-seeing – Aguascalientes, Yucatan, Chichen Itza and Oaxaca. For the more relaxed traveller, there are opportunities to fish, watch whales, snorkel, visit turtle beaches, visit vineyards, temples and churches which offer more culture and an immersive experience of the country. It is known that the European tourists tend to cluster around these activities in areas such as Playa del Carmen, San Cristobal de las Casas and Guanajuato. Each city or town provides its own unique heritage with many Spanish colonial towns still vouching for art and architecture, a break from the usual visit to resorts and beaches. The more romantic holiday-goers can find solace in beach-walking along boardwalks, and sitting with good books in cities like Zihuatanejo and Cozumel with their summery feels. The artists would like the colonial city of San Miguel de Allende. There is no need to rant about what the country of Mexico offers to those willing to travel around for each city’s own vibes and feelings. Even a motor-head who loves to drive would find Highway 1 to be a beautiful stretch of asphalt to go through the serene atmosphere of the desert, mountains and beaches.

Mexico is also well known as a medical tourist destination for medical treatments. They have a large number of well trained doctors that can perform surgeries and other interventions for much cheaper than compared to the USA. All of their doctors are required to take ACLS online certification just like in the USA.

Official websites continue to intrigue the potential tourist towards Mexico’s enchanting riches, and where a hesitant traveller would be sceptical about official views, the truth is undeniable. Mexico’s coastal regions are those which come right from the stories and romanticized places. You can choose to swim below caverns or in the shadows of a Mayan ruin and yet enjoy a great night at bars and resorts. There is something to do for everyone here and what’s more is that the stereotype of a Mexican is not representative of how warm and welcoming the people are!
