Flights from Mexico

The Mexican people appear to have the penchant for excitement, and one will experience it first-hand while touring the country. Rooted in a host of ancient ethnicities, Mexico has plenty of cultural history, lively festivals and natural riches ranging from lush forests to ice-tipped volcanoes. The country also prides itself on food, thanks to some of its internationally renowned delicacies. So, munch on a taco and check out the following places before you leave Mexico:

Mexico City

Get to know Mexico in depth by starting with its capital, Mexico City. Its most popular museum, the National Museum of Anthropology, details Mexican art and ethnic heritage through an extensive collection of craftwork and artifacts. For sports fans, especially those who love soccer, you can find the Estadio Azteca stadium in the south, where Club de Futbol America ply their trade.

Guanajuato

Guanajuato’s moniker is ‘the city of frogs’, which is based on the shape formed by its mountainous range. Looking down on Guanajuato’s streets will leave one feeling uplifted, thanks to the city’s rainbow-coloured buildings. While you’re in Guanajuato, it’s hard to miss the eye-catching exterior of the Juarez Theatre either, where you can enjoy artistic performances and activities. Also, take on the spooky Mummies Museum, which houses over a hundred mummies of the inhabitants that once stalked the city’s streets.

San Miguel de Allende

In central Mexico, lies the city of San Miguel de Allende. Marked by its well-preserved architecture from colonial times, the city is one of Mexico’s most visited. Its tallest building is the Parroquia de San Miguel Archangel, with limestone components that radiate a shade of pink for picture-perfect shots. Also, see the Jacaranda trees in bloom during March and April, as well as the city’s striking sunrises or sunsets in the Sierra Madre foothills.

On your way out of Mexico, mark one of these countries on your map as your next possible destination:

USA

USA is probably the first destination that comes to mind when one departs Mexico, and little introduction is needed for the world’s third most populous country. Once there, be awed at nature’s prized works, Niagara Falls and the Grand Canyon, as well as modern architecture in New York City and Las Vegas.

Honduras

Nearby Mexico is the water-rich Honduras, where you can take a dip in the clear, blue waters or spend the day fishing on a private boat. Awesome diving and snorkelling spots can also be found at the Bay and Hog Islands. When you’ve dried off, there are several cultural sites to visit and learn about the history of the Honduran people, such as the Mayan ruins in Copan.

Jamaica

Jamaica is a small island eastwards of Mexico, only a couple of hours away by air. The birth place of reggae music and iconic reggae figure Bob Marley, the country has become quite popular with tourists. Jamaica is also famed for its tropical fruits, many of which are unfamiliar to the rest of the world but will certainly please your taste buds.
