With tourism returning to the world after the pandemic, you might be wondering where to set your sights. There are a lot of good places to travel in the coming year but once choice, Mexico, stands out. For many it’s exotic, for others, a familiar name but wherever you fall on the spectrum, there’s something for everyone.

Here are a few good reasons to visit Mexico now.

1. The Coast Is Calling

The country of Mexico has roughly 9,330 kilometers of coastline and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Not only is the nature incredible but the accommodation options are as well. Along the Riviera Maya all inclusive hotels by Iberostar are an excellent option giving you both luxury as well as comfort. From there you can head to the sands to swim, snorkel, or just sunbathe if you like. Booking a spot close to the coast means you’re never too far away.

2. Food Variety

Mexican cuisine is one of the world’s most underrated and many people confuse it with Tex-Mex. The varieties of food across Mexico are plentiful, unique, and have many indigenous plants and spices not found anywhere else. You could go to Mexico for the food alone (beach body considerations aside) and have an amazing time. From breakfast to dinner and everything in between, the cuisine in Mexico is seemingly endless and well worth exploring.

3. Ease Of Transportation

Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula is easily accessible with flight coming in from around the world, many of the direct or with minimal layover. Now that you know getting to this gorgeous part of Mexico is easy, you should also know that getting around once you’re here isn’t hard to do either. With modern roads, plenty of cars for rent, and low public transportation costs, finding a way around for your budget won’t be an issue. There are also a lot of sites you’d want to see within a close distance to each other. Cenotes (underground cave pools), Mayan temples, and modern Mexican day and nightlife are all within a very close drive to Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and other popular spots along the Riviera Maya coast.

4. Do It For The Gram

You might want to take pictures of where you are or photos of you with Mexico as the backdrop. From the turquoise ocean waters to white sands and trendy restaurants, there’s a photo with your name on it. Let’s face it, you want to make your friends just a little bit jealous and well, Mexico will do that. You meals, hotel, and the people you meet will all brighten up your social media accounts.

You’ll also brighten up your year by making Mexico one of your annual trips. Accessible, temperate, and as unique, rugged, or luxury you like, Mexico is a little different for every type of traveler and travel plan. That’s one of the best reasons to visit, you can really mold a vacation to Mexico to cater best to you. There’s a lot of reasons to go and you should find out all the others in person, hopefully soon.
