A Guide to What to See in Mexico

Guide on what to see in Mexico beyond margaritas and tacos.

Mexican Colonial Charms

Take enough time to explore some of Mexico’s unique colonial-era architecture. Many cities boast some of the most amazing old churches and much-beloved landmarks, like the Zocalo Plaza in front of Mexico City’s Palacio Nacional (National Palace). Wander through narrow cobblestone streets that take you back in time and admire UNESCO World Heritage sites like San Miguel de Allende or Campeche.

If ever there was a country that celebrated delicious food (and drinks!), it would most certainly have to be Mexico! Here you can sample tacos from street carts set up at nearly every corner or enjoy a gourmet dinner crafted by one of the many incredible chefs offering their services in local restaurants nationwide.

But you can have the best culinary experiences at small establishments outside of more prominent cities. These places always serve some of the most authentic Mexican cuisines from traditional home-style cooking techniques perfected over generations (hello: mole!)

Medical Opportunities In Mexico

And remember one unique benefit: medical opportunities available for visitors in Mexico! Whether it’s dental procedures that provide significant savings from what is offered up north or cancer treatment centers in Mexico located throughout the country. Mexico offers world-class facilities with experienced medical professionals staffed at much lower costs than many other countries can offer. So if treatments are needed while vacationing here, rest assured there are numerous Mexican medical facilities ready to help with whatever your needs are.
