Top Things to Do in Mexico

Cancun is ideal for outdoor activities. Scuba diving and snorkelling enthusiasts love to explore the local Mesoamerican Barrier Reef where there are corals, tropical fish and turtles. The Underwater Museum features submerged sculptures which are slowly being colonised by fish and other sea creatures. Near Cancun are many cenotes, underwater collapsed caves that form idyllic pools. Cenote Siete Bocas at Puerto Morales is only one hour away. Take a thirty-minute drive to the ruins of Ancient Mayan culture at El Meco. The ruins of a Mayan temple can also be seen on the Isla Mujeres, near the Cancun coast.

One of the most impressive Aztec sites to visit is Teotihuacan, where many temples survived the Spanish Conquest. The Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe is one of the city's most beautiful cathedrals. Its most revered relic is a woven image of Mary which miraculously appeared on a cloak in 1531. There is also a museum devoted to the colourful paintings of Mexican life by the artist Frida Kahlo. Popular ways of exploring Mexico City include boat cruises on the river and bicycle tours of the city. Outdoor activities include hiking, pony trekking, and visiting the Cacahuamilpa Caves in the nearby National Park.
