As the world begins to travel again after a long pandemic, we have no doubt there are numerous places on your bucket list.

One country we highly recommend is Mexico. But where do you start in a country that has so many beautiful and historic places to visit? To make sure that your trip is unforgettable, check out our list of suggestions to begin with below:

Cancun & The Mayan Riviera

The wonderful coastline on the Gulf of Mexico features spectacular resort destinations of Playa del Carmen, widely-known Cancun, the island of Cozumel, and many others. All these places are known as the Riviera Maya.

Every single year, this part of Mexico attracts approximately five million tourists from different areas of the world, generating big tourist income. Even though you may think now that these attractions are overcrowded, luckily, you won’t be feeling like you are smothered by others due to the fact that the Riviera has very wide beaches. 

Besides that, you’ll be enjoying numerous luxurious all-inclusive resorts, along with warm, clear water. If you’re looking to have some fun, then you can always opt for stingray and dolphin swims, scuba diving in the biggest underwater museum in the world, snorkeling among tropical fish and reefs, and many other things.

We promise you, you will never feel bored out there. Additionally, you can check out ancient Mayan ruins, or if you have enough free time on your hands, you can visit the ruins of Tulum and Chichen Itza which are just a couple of hours away.

Mexico’s Cenotes

Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula contains thousands of cenotes which many define as the hidden gems of this country. These astonishing cenotes attract a plethora of tourists, explorers, and adventurers every single year. 

What are the most popular ones? There are many beautiful Yucatan Cenotes, but we’ll do our best to name the most wonderful ones. Cenote Manati, also known as Casa Cenote is one of the most amazing and unique cenotes in the Tulum region.

It was named after the manatees that oftentimes visited this site. If you’re looking for a place where you’ll be able to swim all day, then Cenote Manati must definitely be included in your trip. The entrance is around $150 pesos, and you’ll receive a life jacket as well.

Then there’s the Yaxmuul Cenotes, near the Jungle Maya Park. Those who have visited these Cenotes before claim that they are one of the most astonishing things they have ever seen, and are ideal for those who are not huge fans of crowded places. 

The only downside of it this whole trip is that you will have to drive for a couple of miles down a dirt road in order to reach them. That’s precisely one of the reasons why visitors frequently rely on a tour guide to take them there.

Xoxocotlan, Oaxaca 

Those who are familiar with the Mexican culture and tradition will tell you that they have a special relationship with those who have passed away. Unfortunately, this country is constantly dealing with horrifying murders and many other brutal things.

Therefore, they are trying to find some form of consolation by “communicating” with the deceased. Namely, if you go to Xoxocotlan, you will see exactly how these wonderful people mourn.

Furthermore, you will stumble upon a variety of different flowers, candles, and people honoring their loved ones with some lovely songs. If you want to participate in the carnival, then it would be best to visit this place on the Day of the Dead, which is on October 31st.


If you’re looking to see a place that’s pretty unique and that will provide you with a once-in-a-lifetime experience, then you should definitely visit this colonial city. Namely, Puebla sits approximately eighty-five miles southeast of the Mexican capital.

Out there you will come across wonderful churches, but what will sweep you off your feet the most is certainly spectacular Talavera pottery that offers delicious, both spicy and sweet cuisine. The dishes you must surely try are mole poblano and chiles en nogada. 

Naming the most amazing attractions in this country is for sure very challenging, due to the fact that Mexico is full of breathtaking locations, so these are only a handful of recommended places. So make sure to visit at least one of them and don’t forget to have fun, be safe, and plan ahead.
