With so many places to visit in Mexico, where should you go?
During my eight years living in Mexico, I’ve done a lot of traveling: to all kinds of beaches, up mountains and volcanos, to jungles in the north and south, to deserts full of cacti and Joshua trees, to tranquil small towns where Spanish is a second language, and all around the madness of Mexico City.
I describe five of my favorite places in my newest article for Transitions Abroad: 5 Routes and Regions for an Authentic Mexican Visit.
Sure, I love the beauty and convenience of popular tourist spots like Los Cabos and the Mayan Riviera. I’d recommend them to anyone. But if you’ve already been there, or are looking for something a little different (and cheaper), then check out the places in the article.
Sure, some of them, like the hippy hangouts and expat communities of Oaxaca, are firmly on the beaten path. But you’ll still find a more authentic and adventurous experience there, instead of staying in a fancy resort with all your bland tacos and watered-down drinks included.
