"Mexico is a large country...." Mexico Favorite Tip by mnybondas

Mexico General: 399 reviews and 315 photos

Favorite thing: Mexico is a large country. There is enough to see and experience in Mexico for a whole life time.

Mexico City is the capital and a natural starting point to start exploring Mexico. It is the biggest city in the world with about 20 million inhabitants. The city is situated in a valley at 2200 meters above sea level. The location in the tropical highlands gives Mexico City a pleasant climate. It is never hot and it is never cold either. The warmest time of the year is March - May. The rainy season starts in June.

From Mexico City you can reach both the Pacific coast (Acapulco) and the Caribbean coast (Veracruz) in 3-4 hours with a car or with a bus. If you continue further south towards the Guatemala border you reach the Chiapas region. From Veracruz you can continue towards the Yucatan peninsula in the east.
