Mexico

Whenever someone mention Mexico first things that pop up on your mind is cheap beach resorts, great night life and Aztec heritage .Mexico is a country between the U.S. and Central America that’s known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts and jungles. Ancient ruins such as Teotihuacan (Aztec) and Chichen Itza (Mayan) are scattered throughout the country, as are Spanish colonial-era towns. In capital Mexico City, upscale shops, renowned museums and gourmet restaurants cater to modern life.

We arrive in Mexico City one of the biggest city in the world and center of everything in Mexico. Pick up by some friends we went to the hotel , a nice place based in nice area quite bit off the central area. We didnt pay much for that accommodation ( 30$ room) and we decide to relax a bit from the flight and later that day to explore the city. Mexico city has an interesting spanish colonial architecture and also some modern skyscrapers. Templo Mayor (a 13th-century Aztec temple), the baroque Catedral Metropolitana of the Spanish conquistadors and the Palacio Nacional, which houses historic murals by Diego Rivera. All of this resides in and around the Plaza de la Constitución, the massive main square also known as the Zócalo. This is some of the things that you can see there. Also you can enjoy in the night in a good restaurant good food nice music warm people. Next day we decide to take a car and go around the country . First we went to Chichen Itza. Chichén Itzá is a world-famous complex of Mayan ruins on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. A massive step pyramid known as El Castillo dominates the 6.5-sq.-km. ancient city, which thrived from around 600 A.D. to the 1200s. Graphic stone carvings survive at structures like the ball court, Temple of the Warriors and the Wall of the Skulls. Nightly sound-and-light shows illuminate the buildings’ sophisticated geometry. There is a plenty of this Aztec ruins around the country including whole ancient city ruins under the modern city of Mexico city.

From there we went to enjoy a bit in the mountains , there is some nice hiking tours This Iztaccihuatl Volcano hike is a must-do for outdoor enthusiasts visiting MexicoCity.The air may be thin up there, but the views are not — soak up stunning views of Popocatepetl and the Valley of Mexico before descending the dormant volcano. Another great hike was Oaxaca. Hike through remote mountains and ancient villages. Explore the world class archeological sites of the Zapotec and Mixtec cultures. Experience the vibrant craft traditions of Oaxaca’s pueblos. Then relax in the luscious warmth and tropical splendor of Mexico’s secluded Oaxaca coast.

Last part of our journey to Mexico we spend in some of the most beautiful resorts, we enjoy snorkeling scuba diving and swimming in resorts located in Acapulco , Calcun , Puerto Vallarta

If you are into the surfing also in most of the resorts you have surfing classes so you can try this as well.

When the day come to go out of this beautiful country we felt that we want to come back soon.
