Travel Tips For The Best Holiday In Mexico
If you’ve settled on Mexico for your 2018 vacation destination, then you’ve made a great choice. Not only is the country one of the most diverse in terms of both landscape and culture, it’s also one of the most fun. You certainly won’t run out of things to experience or sights to see. One of the biggest problems that you’ll have whilst visiting Mexico is finding the time to tick off your checklist of everything that you want to do while you’re there. If you’re looking for cheats, tips, and tricks to get the most of your Mexico experience, then here are the best places to start.
• The Unusual
You could choose to spend the majority of your time on the beach, or you could opt to take part in some of the organized excursions to some of the more famous tourist attractions. However, if you do plan to do some exploring, it’s always a good idea to avoid those organized tours and arrange your own excursions.
Not only will it be cheaper, but you will also get the chance to visit some of the more unusual sites in the country, such as the Soumaya Museum or Catemaco Lake. Mexico has far more to offer than you might have suspected. It’s very easy to follow the crowds, but that’s not what a holiday should be about.
• Use Native Sites
If you’re looking for ways to reduce your travel costs so that you have more spending money when you arrive, then it’s always a good idea to do research beforehand. Check out the local restaurants and have a read through the reviews so that you know where to go for the best in taste and price.
You should also consider using native sites for your travel as well, with a search for ‘hoteles en Veracruz precios’ offering much better prices than a simple search for ‘hotel prices in Veracruz.’ It may be more complicated, but Google Translate is your friend. Using these sites offers you a much better chance of snapping up that bargain.
• Prepare for the Weather
The weather in Mexico can be very predictable, with June the obvious hottest month with temperatures reaching 23°C (73°F) and enjoying the most time in terms of daylight. Be wary of travelling to the country in September. That’s definitely the wettest month of the year, so unless you enjoy the rain and have plenty of umbrella options, you might be better off travelling a little earlier in the year. For the beach lovers, you really want to be looking to visit Mexico around July, because that’s when the sea is at its warmest.
A holiday in Mexico is one of the best decisions that you’ll ever make, and it’s not difficult to understand just why it’s so popular. Take your time to plan, and you could be jetting off on the adventure of a lifetime much sooner and cheaper than you might have thought. Never be afraid to wander from the beaten track and always do some research before you visit Mexico. Your holiday will be all the better for it.
Have a great trip! xx
Good tips. I’ve been to Mexico a couple times and have always enjoyed my time there. I would advice people to be cautious, however. I would recommend staying with organized tours in order to be safer, as there has been a lot of criminal activity in Mexico recently. However, if you limit your explorations to daytime and follow the recommendations for staying safe you should be fine.
Thanks a lot for visiting and for your feedback, Tawnya!
Thanks for this info! We are heading there later this year!
