While most of Mexico may be well known for it’s party atmosphere packed with young university students looking to spend their spring break – there is more to this magical country than meets the eye.
Whether you’re a self-professed foodie, shopaholic, or really just want to check out the sights and sounds of modern-day Mexico, then definitely keep reading on where to go, and what to do.
Is there anything more romantic than Lovers Beach? Cabo San Lucas might be well known for the wrong reasons, but if you’re in town you have to check out this natural wonder. There are a variety of boating options willing to take you, your partner, and all your friends and family through the majestic waters of Playa Del Amor – as dubbed by the locals.
Relax by the side of the boat with a glass of champagne, dine at one of the many restaurants along the coastline (we suggest Restaurante Mi Casa for fresh seafood), and snorkel in the crystal-clear waters. Did we forget to mention that Divorce Beach is also just around the corner? The waves come in from the Pacific Ocean, and are known to be rough as opposed to the placid waters of Playa Del Amor.

Did we just suggest you visit a bookstore in Mexico City? This one has to be seen at least once in your life. Picture this – a bookstore which is literally packed to the ceiling with originals, best-sellers, and even a bunch of modern writers. A real page-turner!

Want to be astonished and kinda freaked out at the same time? The Underwater Museum at Cancun is one of the most artistic of the entire country, with sculptures by Jason DeCaires Taylor continuing to entertain tourists from all over the world.
You can choose to snorkel, dive, or simply just visit in a glass-bottom boat – but we suggest snorkelling to get up close and personal with the craftsmanship of the sculptures.
