Home to some of South America’s most beautiful beaches, Mexico is a much-loved holiday destination by those who return year after year to swim in its seas or soak up the sun from warm white sand. But the country is more than just one big beach and there are centuries of history to learn about and a rich culture to immerse yourself in. Not to mention the famous Mexican food which is one of the country’s biggest exports. You can enjoy all the sights, sounds and smells of Mexico by staying in one of HouseTrip’s many comfortable holiday apartments in Mexico.
Holiday in Mexico
One of the largest cities in the world, Mexico City is a sprawling metropolis of old and new and is one of the most affordable modern cities on the globe to visit and explore. Discover the history of Mexico at sites like Teotihuacān a prehistoric settlement and learn about Mexico’s ancient Maya legacy at Uxmul, an ancient settlement believed to be over 2500 years old. A more remote historic experience can be found at Real de Catroce, an old silver mining town that was mostly abandoned at the turn of the 20th century when the price of silver dropped. It has since been lovingly preserved but remains all but a ghost town and is virtually car free. To live among the indigenous groups of Mexico and learn about the traditions in crafts and handiwork that have been handed down through generations, head to Oaxaca, where the photogenic Spanish colonial architecture earned the city UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Considered one of Mexico’s Pueblos Mágicos (magic towns), the settlement of Pátzcuaro watches over a beautiful lake of the same name and is a maze of cobbled streets and beautifully kept white colonial buildings. Away from towns and cities are the famous beaches of Acapulco and Cancun, where there is a famous underwater museum for scuba divers to enjoy a very different diving experience.
