I’ve traveled to Mexico on multiple occasions and yet still have barely seen any of this enormous country. In recent years Mexico has had a lot of negative publicity, but I’ve traveled to the US-Mexico border, the Yucatan peninsula, visited Mayan ruins and experienced world-class scuba diving. Mexico has a huge variety of landscapes, culture and unique foods waiting to be experienced. I loved my trips to Mexico, discover more about this beautiful country in my posts below.
