Mexico is a country of 127 million people. It is made up of 31 states, each with varying climates, resources, and culture. Traveling to Mexico is common for people because of its proximity and affordability for U.S. citizens. Some of the most commonly visited places include:

#1 Teotihuacan

Located outside of Mexico City, Mexico the Teotihuacan ruins are a must see for many tourists visiting the country. This UNESCO World Heritage site is home to some of the largest and well preserved pre-Columbian structures in South America. Home to the advanced Aztec civilization, this site is a must see for any adventurer and lover of the outdoors. The tallest pyramid is the famous Pyramid of the Sun, which sits at the heart of the small city in Mexico. Travelers can climb up these large structures to reach the top. Nearby of course, is the country’s capital— a city of nearly 9 million—Mexico City, which holds similar must see destinations like the Zocalo, Xcaret Park, and the Anthropological Museum.

#2 Cancun & Playa del Carmen

Here travelers will find a plethora of life sized sea creatures that can be observed as you scuba dive.

#3 Chichen Itza
