If your plan is to visit Mexico, you have your options. Whether exploring the mainland, the Atlantic side, the Pacific side, or just Baja California, there are a good number of choices. Each have their plusses and minuses, but whatever you choose, you’re sure to have a great time – Mexico is the world’s most popular cruise destination – more than 6 million visitors annually – and it holds this title for a reason.
If you could bottle the beauty that is found in La Paz you’d make a mint. In fact, many already try to do just that with a little souvenir snow globe made of sand. Still, this wonderful little town’s beauty is irreplaceable. The capital of Baja California, and, nestled into a little cove on a bay, it enjoys a sunny and warm climate with a nice ocean breeze. People come from the world over to see the ancient cave paintings, enjoy the town’s quaint Spanish-influenced pueblo architecture, or experience world-class water activities. If you’re thinking about heading down to La Paz, Mexico, go.
The Museo Frida Kahlo (Frida Kahlo Museum) in Mexico City is dedicated to the life and work of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Known for her fascinating self-portraits and unique personal style, Frida Kahlo is considered to be one of Mexico’s most important artists and a leading figure of 20th-century Mexican painting.
One of the highlights when traveling is getting a chance to do a little souvenir shopping. The experience is more than just the purchase, but the act of immersing yourself into a totally different cultural whirlpool. Markets are, in many ways, a societal meeting point for a town, and so a visit to a foreign market tells you more than just what came in with today’s catch. Mexico City is a big city, and has some great markets to choose from. Whichever you choose, remember to be safe, haggle, and never accept the first price offered.
One of the great cities of New Spain, Zacatecas for a long time stood as a Mexican center for silver mining, colonization, evangelization, and cultural expansion. Numerous (15) religious structures dot the Historic Center of Zacatecas, including a grand cathedral decorated in the Baroque style. Today, the Historic Center of Zacatecas acts as a sort of living museum, each corner seemingly borne of colonial grandeur, rich with history and a great place to walk, eat, and shop in.
I think almost everyone would agree that a trip to Mexico is not complete unless you get in some shopping and tequila drinking. After all it is Mexico. There are certain expectations to uphold, and thankfully there is a tour to help you do that.
