Playa del Carmen
At the heart of a good Mexican experience will always be its people. Positively charming, you'll rarely find Mexicans less than courteous. Whether they are urban city hipsters or shy indigenous villagers of Chiapas, they know how to treat their guests. Also, renowned for their love of color and frequent fiestas, they make sure all travellers have an equally vibrant experience.
But Mexico is also sea, sand and sky. With steaming jungles, smoking, snow-capped volcanoes, cactus-strewn deserts and 10,000km of coast strung with sandy beaches and wildlife-rich lagoons, Mexico is an endless adventure for the senses and a place where life is lived largely in the open air.
It’s an adventure of a kind as you sample regional dishes like Yucatán's cochinitapibil (slow-cooked pork) and experience the taste of themoles, complex sauces whose recipes have always been secretly guarded. Now that’s mysteriously delicious!
A celebration of life and a remembrance of the departed. This annual festival lies in duality. Full of music, food and family, it has been designated as an ‘intangible cultural heritage’ by UNESCO since 2003.
If there’s a heaven for surfers, it probably lies just off Playa Zicatela. The two-mile stretch of golden sand and crashing waves that beautifies the mellow Pacific beach town of Puerto Escondido is regularly touted as númerouno in the hit parade of Mexican surf spots.
Sail through some of the oldest gardens known to mankind: the Chinampa, or Floating Gardens of the Aztec. Rent a colourful trajinera and float along the canals under the Mexican sunshine while you sip a cold beer and contemplate the history of this beautiful spot.
