Three world spots for your Mexico roundtrip

Chichen Itza (Mexico)

When you tour Mexico you will find various remnants of Mayan culture, including Chichen Itza. In fact, this was one of the most important cities of the Mayan empire, rising above the Mexican jungle like giant pyramids. Located on the Yucatán Peninsula, the city has many sacred structures on the edge of the ancient crater Chicxulub, including the Pyramid of Kukulcán. This pyramid is included in UNESCO's World Heritage List.

San Cristobal de las Casas

If you want to see a lot of culture and nature in a short time during your tour of Mexico and beaches are not at the top of your list, the South of Mexico comes highly recommended. Here you will find rainforest, mountains and ancient Mayan temples, such as those at Palenque. High in these southern mountains, close to the Guatemalan border is San Cristóbal de las Casas. For many people, a stay in this old colonial city is the highlight of their visit to this part of Mexico.


If beaches are at the top of your list, then the pearly white sand beaches and clear blue waters of Oaxaca in Mexico are really worth a visit. You'll find turtle beaches, surf beaches, as well as small coves. But Oaxaca has more to offer, namely stunning mountain scenery, beautiful valleys, huge corn fields and one of the most important archaeological sites can be found here, namely the temple city ruins Monte Albán.

Many other travelers have also discovered the country's diversity. Indeed, in 2011, Mexico welcomed 22.67 international visitors. This broke the record set in 2008.
