Here are the popular cities you need to visit when in Mexico.

Playa Del Carmen

Playa Del Carmen is a town, once a fishing village, that sits on the Caribbean Sea. White sand, blue skies, and crystal waters await. The town’s nightlife is what attracts most people, with a bustling electronic scene, and tonnes of well-regarded nightclubs and dancehalls. Yearly, there is a BPM festival held in the town, and it’s not uncommon to find professional golfers hanging around Playa Del Carmen, after all, it is known for hosting the PGA tournaments! The town is surrounded by beautiful wilderness, unexplored and waiting for you to arrive. It is a relatively safe place to visit, with virtually no violent crimes.


Cancun, Mexico, the quintessential American party destination. Every year, thousands of Americans make a pilgrimage to Cancun for the annual Spring Break celebrations. The town boasts hundreds of all-inclusive resorts, white sand, and nightclubs unlike any you will have visited in your entire life. Not only can you get out into the party scene, but you can also get out into the countryside. Around Cancun, there are lush jungles, dense woodland, walking tracks, and even a network of caverns. It is a great place to visit if you love the outdoors, but you are a party animal too.


Tulum is probably best known for its Mayan ruins. It is less of a party destination, and more of a backpacking destination for historians and travelers looking for a slice of peace. Tulum’s history is rich and its people and culture welcoming and warm. It is set along the Riviera Maya and offers hostels, hotels, and small businesses. There are also wellness retreats and resorts there. Every type of traveler is welcome in Tulum, and every type of traveler will find something for them. You can even go swimming in underwater caves – cool huh?


Cozumel, which is not too far from Playa Del Carmen (why not see both?) is an island paradise adored for its coral reefs. Travelers across the world regularly visit Cozumel’s white-sanded beaches and crystal clear water. The island’s resorts are many, and it is a great place for you to visit if you are looking for a slice of peace in a world that, so far, has become incredibly chaotic and angst-provoking. You can even go snorkeling off of Cozumel’s coastline. There is also a lot to learn about Mayan culture and a very interesting archaeological site, San Gervasio.


Huatulco, a coastal town not too far from Oaxaca, nestled along the Pacific Ocean. Huatulco has become incredibly popular among international tourists, and the accommodation ranges from hostels to five-star hotels. There are rules, however, to protect the area's rich nature and landscape. No buildings can exceed six stories, for example. There are ecological tours, as well as snorkeling, and just good ol’ plain relaxing. Huatulco is a paradise on earth, waiting for you to visit it.


Guanajuato is a UNESCO World heritage-listed city, known for its stunning pastel-colored homes, and colonial architecture. The city’s cobblestone roads and pathways make for easy footing as you navigate your way through a historic and fascinating city, abounded with busy plazas and ornate decorations. Annually, the Festival Internacional Cervantino takes place, which is a great thing for you to visit if you are interested in art. This city is one of the most oft-visited in Mexico and is a great place for you to begin your tour of the country. The nightlife is insane, and there is so much to do. This cosmopolitan city is a great place for you to check out.

Visiting Mexico is something everybody has to do at least once in their life. The country has developed a bad reputation in the last few years, in part due to the drug crime prevalent there. It is, however, incredibly warm, welcoming, and provided you stick to tourist areas, very safe.
