Historical places

There are many ancient cities in this country, but in order not to get scattered and see the most interesting sights of Mexico, we suggest visiting the following places:

Chichen Itza

Not far from Merida is the ancient city of Chichen Itza, which is officially recognized as one of the new seven wonders of the world. On the territory of the largest Mayan city there are several temples, including the famous pyramid of El Castillo or Kukulkan. In addition to the preserved structures on the territory of the city, you can see household items and ancient Mayan drawings.

Teotihuacan

This huge archaeological complex is the oldest city in all of America, which was built in the 3rd century BC. Teotihuacan is full of mysteries and secrets, because once it developed as rapidly as the Roman Empire, and then was suddenly abandoned. The images of the pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, which served as the gateway to the Trail of the Dead in these places, are often depicted on Mexican postcards, so do not miss the chance to see them live.

Palenque

Another major Mayan city is Palenque, which houses more than 100 ancient buildings. If it is not possible to go for a walk among the Mayan palaces and pyramids, lost in dense foliage, we advise you to look into the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City, because this is where all the treasures of the city are located.

Beaches and Cenotes

If you can’t imagine a vacation without relaxing by the water, then Mexico is ready to provide the widest range of activities. In recent years, beach lovers have mainly chosen resorts on the Caribbean coast (Cancun, Tulum, Cozumel), which are suitable for diving and relaxation. However, if you prefer surfing and long walks along coastal cliffs, go to the Pacific Ocean, for example, to the beaches of Mexico in Los Cabos, Acapulco or La Paz.

In addition to diving in the ocean, you can go to explore Mexican cenotes in the Yucatan Peninsula. One of the most beautiful with bizarre stalactites on the walls is the Grand Cenote near Tulum, as well as Dos Ojos, which is part of one of the longest underwater caves in the world!

Mountains and volcanoes of Mexico

Copper canyon

Barranca del Cobre in Chihuahua is 50,000 square kilometers, so to enjoy the beauty of the region to its fullest, it is best to take the El Chepe tourist train. A trip between the mountains of Mexico in a small trailer goes along thin bridges, narrow tunnels and plumb lines, so in a couple of hours of the road you can gain impressions for months in advance.

Popocatepetl

The active volcano, which locals call El Popo, has long been trying to calm down, throwing ash into the air. This incredible sight attracts a large number of hikers, but it is not so easy to admire the local views, for this you need to obtain permission from the park management. The most successful months for trekking in these places are March, April, September and October.

Mexican food

The main products of the country are corn, avocado, hot peppers and beans. These ingredients are found in almost every dish, so prepare yourself for a hearty and spicy meal. We will not talk about the famous burritos, quesadillas, fajitas and tacos, but we advise you to pay attention to the chocolate-spicy molé sauce (usually served with chicken) and slightly hot poblano peppers with nut sauce. And don’t forget to sample the sweet tamales with nuts and fruits.

Conditions and rules of entry into the country

Russians still do not need to apply for a visa to visit Mexico in 2021, however, to enter the country, you need to obtain an electronic permit on the website of the Mexican Migration Service.

Features of staying during a pandemic

Mexico has been open to travelers for a long time. To visit the country, Russians do not need to take a COVID-19 test, but since a transplant is to be carried out on the way to Mexico, it is necessary to take into account arrival rules in transit countries.

Before departure, you must also fill out a health questionnaire. After that, a special QR code will be sent to the post office, which is presented at passport control in Mexico.

You should wear a mask in public places in Mexico, and some states in the country have bandwidth restrictions, so if you plan to visit the museum, you should take care of the ticket for the desired day in advance.
