Highs and Lows and Mexico Vacations

Centuries ago, as the stories have it; a famous world explorer was trying to explain to the royal courts of his home country what the terrain of Mexico was actually like. Growing impatient with his lack of ability to articulate the answer, he grabbed a piece of parchment, crumpled it up into a ball, opened it back up, laid it on the table and, pointing, said that is Mexico. For something hard to articulate, try Mexico vacations.

Mexico is indeed a land of tremendous contrasts. For holiday seekers there may be no better place to experience such extreme differences of land in any one country. Mexico does seem to truly have something for everybody. From the tame to the wild, the staid the extremely adventurous, it is here somewhere.

If you enjoy beaches and seas, this country has them in all sorts of varieties. There are white sand beaches as well as rocky shorelines almost inhospitable to visitors. It is situated with the Pacific Ocean on one side, and the Gulf of Mexico on the other. These are two very different bodies of water and offer may different uses.

If you enjoy mountainous regions, this land has them, too. In fact, Mexico has some extremely high mountains that are serious enough for the most daring and technical climber, as well as beautiful rolling hills for the day hiker. Of course, they have jungles and deserts both, and the flora and fauna that goes along with them.

If you enjoy large cities to play and discover in, Mexico has enormous cities. Mexico City itself is one of the largest and busiest metropolitan areas in the world, and it is chock full of the hustle and bustle you would expect from one. Other cities, both coastal and inland, offer the best of what urban living can provide.

If you would prefer country styled touring, they have the absolute wilds of the desert to consider. There are landscapes that are still largely untouched by man, where nature is far too rugged to be tamed just yet. For the adventurous, there are still plenty of wild places left in this land. In fact, some areas are perhaps too dangerous and may take special permits and allowances for entry. Check with an agent if in doubt.

Getting to any of these areas in the country is easy, too. From the North Americas and South Americas you can drive, take a bus, ride a train, or even backpack in. From other countries there are continuous flights available on all major airlines. Mexico is cost effective, too, with an exchange rate very conducive to travel.

Mexico vacations can offer something for everybody. This is a land of such diversity that it could take a lifetime to explore just one aspect of it. It is very convenient for travel, and very conducive to travel. Most regions promote tourism and look forward to foreigners coming to visit. It is affordable, too, from anywhere in the world. Mexico is a true destination country for any serious about travel and holidays.
