Why You Should Visit
Mexico is a country steeped in history and brimming with exciting things to discover. While Mexico’s beach resorts are incredibly luxurious, it is here in Mexico City where you will find some of the best cuisine in the world (you can’t beat real Mexican street food) and there’s so much to see and do you’ll probably have to make several trips to fit everything in. From the bustling streets to the intriguing historic centre, Mexico City is an eye-opener you don’t want to miss.
