Regardless of if you’re coming from overseas on a cruise or heading through on an epic road trip from Central America or the United States, Mexico has sensational experiences waiting for you – just be sure to be cautious and smart to avoid any potential issues.

If you’re someone who typically spends a week or so a year at an all inclusive resort, consider checking out Mexico’s premier holiday destinations. Whether it’s the resort areas, the islands or just to check out the coastline on an epic road trip between ancient historical sites, Mexico is calling out to you – are you going to answer?
Here are a few suggestions of how to spend a great Mexican vacation:
Great for Parties
Partying is just to be expected when you’re in Mexico and you’d be foolish not to take part. If you find yourself on a resort, you can be assured that they will be safe places to hang out – just don’t drink the water. There are varying ranges of quality of resorts and you will in many cases get what you pay for, but on the whole, if you’re looking for great value to have a great time with family or friends, you really can’t go wrong with Mexico! Consider taking a cruise as well to locations like Cozumel, Mexico’s fun little party island just off the coast and find it has a lot to offer families and adults alike.
Soaking up the Sun
As a country in the tropics, Mexico experiences fabulous weather most of the year that is great to escape from the cold and misery of the winter elsewhere. You can do this onboard a cruise ship heading from the US to Mexico, on the beaches or a resort or at any point in between. Just be forewarned, if you are travelling from a more northern location, the intense Mexican sun may be a bit stronger than what you are used to, so be sure to apply plenty of sunscreen and stay hydrated.
While many people will go to Mexico purely to relax and lay on a beach, many do in fact go to discover a bit of history in this great area. The Mayan and Aztec cultures once thrived in Mexico until the Spanish arrived but many sites related to these great civilizations still stand for you to discover. Of particular mention is the Chichen Itza, a Mayan temple located in the Mayan Riviera that draws countless visitors each year. When you consider these cultures were completely removed from the rest of the world, it is remarkable the level of technology they reached without the benefit of learning from others. Don’t miss out on seeing these incredible historical sites that are just as beautiful as they are fascinating.
Regardless of how you spend your holiday, or if it’s a combination of each, you will love your time in Mexico. Be sure to make it a stop on your itinerary sometime soon!
