If the many countries of Central America are calling you, a Travellers Choice agent can ensure you enjoy the holiday of a lifetime.
Mexico City is the enormous, busy capital of Mexico. Densely populated, the city is a Central American melting pot, with people from a variety of cultures calling it home.
Mexican food is loved the world over, but most of its devotees have never tasted anything quite like what’s on offer in Mexico City. With easy access to the essential ingredients, the authentic dishes everywhere from street vendors to high-end restaurants will surprise and delight visitors. Of course, no night out is complete without sampling the local tequila either!
In the daytime, stroll down the Paseo de la Reforma, a grand avenue that runs through the city and connects to some of the best museums and structures. For a glimpse at the history of the country, head over the Centro Historico, a neighbourhood with remarkably well-preserved architecture. It’s also a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site!
Away from Mexico City, the region of Yucatan is great for history buffs and beach-lovers a like. There are resort towns like Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum which offer vibrant nightlife and stunning stretches of sand, but also the ancient Mayan sites of Chichen Itza and Mayapan, and colonial cities such as Mérida.
All up, Mexico is a rich destination for travellers. With so much on offer, it’s a must-visit destination for Central America.
