Mexico Travel Guide

by our Mexico expert Paul Baderman
 
Paul BadermanTrivia question – in which country is California? Smart-alec answer - in Mexico, if you’re talking about Baja California. That’s the 600m peninsula that runs south of the border from the American state and which boasts some of the best beaches in the Pacific. Beloved by surfers, by schools of gambolling dolphins and, from January to April, by migratory grey whales. Traverse the country, and you’re across the continent at a whole new ocean. The Gulf of Mexico gives on to the Caribbean and has a climate to match. Cancun is the justly popular resort area but it’s easy to go a little further to avoid the crowds. Easier still to delve into fascinating pre-Columbian history – the modern metropolis of Mexico City still contains Aztec ruins. Part of the beautiful Gulf coast on the Yucatan peninsula is known as the Mayan Riviera for the plentiful sites, including sacred pyramids that rival those of the pharaohs, which are linked to the great Mayan Empire that pre-dated the Aztecs by centuries.
