Mexico is a fascinating location if you are searching for adventure and ancient history feeling. There is no shortage of things to do, see and explore in Mexico City, but a top attraction is unquestionably the Catedral Metropolitana. It is the oldest and the largest cathedral in Latin America, and the 16th century structure dominates the city’s central plaza, known as the Zocalo. The architecture is a blend of styles, including heavy influences from baroque and Mexican churrigueresque design. In addition to the architecture, the Catedral Metropolitana boasts an extensive art collection as well as catacombs beneath the main structure.
Another of Mexico’s increasingly popular beach destinations is the Pacific coastal city of Puerto Vallarta. Often shortened to just Vallarta, the city – many parts of which remain untouched by modern development – first appeared on the vacation radar in the 1960s as a playground for North America’s social elite and has since become extremely popular among foreigners looking for second homes in a warmer climate. Nowadays, the city is as likely to attract an older cruise ship audience looking to swim with the dolphins as it is younger travelers looking for adventure, found here in activities as diverse as paragliding and jet-skiing. For those who like vacationing at a little slower pace, the city also boasts many locations to shop for arts and crafts or to simply stroll along pleasant beachside promenades with their many green spaces and sculptures.
Cabo San Lucas
While it’s not the most rugged of backpackers’ scene, Cabo San Lucas is immensely popular with most tourists as a place to live the highlife by the coast, with reams of bars, boutique shopping areas, holiday markets, and of course long stretches of beach. It really is the place for anyone looking for the ease provided by solid tourism infrastructure and to spend days snorkelling, diving, fishing, golfing, surfing and and nights drinking tequila an dancing to the sounds of latin music. On top of that, the El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, an entirely unique rock formation that appears to have grown out of the turquoise sea water surrounding it, is definitely worth a look.
