Mexico: A World of Its Own

 

The U.S. and Mexico are natural-born friends. We may be different, but our connection is unbreakable.

The U.S. is brave and adventurous, while Mexico is fearless and colorful. But we both share a deep passion for freedom. And while travelers from the U.S. may think they know Mexico, time and again, Mexico will surprise them with new experiences. Whether it's a new flavor, a unique adventure or an ancient ruin waiting centuries to captivate its visitors, there is always something to discover.

Mexico has its world-famous beaches that are ideal for celebration, recreation and relaxation, but there is so much more to explore in its mystical jungles, vibrant and magical colonial towns, and awe-inspiring natural wonders.

And more and more, Mexico's magic is getting the recognition it deserves.

Both Tijuana and Puerto Escondido made The New York Times' "52 Places to Go in 2017" list – Tijuana for its electrifying culinary movement and Puerto Escondido for its artsy bohemian vibe. And in 2016, Mexico City was #1 on the list for its radiating energy and ease of travel.2 Playa del Amor in the Marietas Islands made National Geographic's 21 best beaches in the world list.3 It truly is an incredible place. And Lonely Planet named Guanajuato as one of the top cities to travel to in 2018.4 Its colorful cityscape and decorative churches definitely helped with that.

There's even magic in the food. And there's no better way to feel the magical spirit of Mexico than through its vibrant cuisine, which is proudly deemed a cultural treasure by UNESCO with its rightful place on UNESCO's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Each region's characteristic flavors and aromas narrate the story of the rich traditions still held close there. A culinary journey through Malinalco, a small town in the Ixtapan Region, allows travelers to visit traditional bakeries where bread is baked in clay ovens with ocote pinewood. A visit to Sonora, on the shores of the Sea of Cortez, offers the chance to indulge in a feast of fresh fish and seafood prepared by expert chefs. And Santa María del Oro in Durango is home to unmissable venorio, a very spicy mole crafted with red chili veins and seeds.

The experiences don't stop with culinary delights. There is so much more. So much to see in the ancient ruins and so much to feel in the energy of the past. Travelers will feel the strength of the Pyramid of Kukulkan at Chichen Itza, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. They will feel the awesomeness of Teotihuacan, just outside of Mexico City, after climbing the Pyramid of the Sun, the third-largest pyramid in the world. And they will feel a rush of adrenaline climbing the hill of Sombreretillo to reach the Church of Santo Madero or climbing the vertical walls of the Lima Canyon in Coahuila.

So send your clients to Mexico, where they can discover new worlds and experience their wildest dreams.
