Brass Bands and Fab Feasts: Sweet Medley of a Mexico Holiday
One of the highlights of your holiday in Mexico is surely going to be the savoring of authentic Mexican cuisine and special regional delights. Mesmerizing meals aside, Mexico is a true cultural medley. It has awe-inspiring ruins, art and architecture, silken-sand beaches, alongside indigenous and Spanish cultural traditions. It may seem like a lot, which is why you can let Enchanting Travels combine the best of these and design a customized tour just for you.
Mexico City with its plazas, churches, cathedrals, museums, and mural art can keep a traveler busy for weeks, as can the thousands of Maya and Aztec archaeological sites around the country. Not far from the capital city, don a sombrero and walk down the Avenue of the Dead in Teotihuacán, admiring fabulous pyramids built by the Aztecs.
Northwest of Mexico City, make your way to the Sierra Madre Occidental Mountains, where colonial mining cities, now designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites, offer art and rich architecture. In the central plazas of San Miguel de Allende, Zacatecas, Queretaro, or Guanajuato City, experience Spanish colonial grandeur and local life and festivities.
While the beaches of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula need no introduction, its ruins and cenotes (sinkholes), secret limestone cave systems with subterranean pools, are as important a part of the landscape. In Merida, the region’s capital, take a horse-drawn carriage to explore the colonial city, stopping off at a local cantina when you need a break.
Most famous in the Yucatán is the marvelous Mayan site of Chichén Itzá, an astounding example of architectural precision and expertise. No less grand are Uxmal, Coba, and other smaller cities once lost to jungles, but now reclaimed. Stay in a restored hacienda while you take trips into the forests and countryside to visit these unique spots.
Colorful Mexican towns and cities have a deep history and multicultural heritage. Mariachi brass bands, vibrant costumed parades, and extravagant floats are part of Mexico’s many festivals. Your Enchanting Travels expert can help ensure your trip coincides with one. Truth be told, even if don’t plan for it, you’re never far from music, folk dancing, and a fiesta in Mexico.
