Let’s go to Mexico, home of Maya cities, volcanoes (and the super cute volcano rabbit) and of course, tequila! Cue the trumpets.
Ah, Mexico – a place where food and drink collide in a perfect cacophony of delicious chaos. This place is the stuff of beans. We mean, uh, dreams. Travelling through Mexico, you’ll begin to see a certain theme occurring.
That theme will usually involve street side tacos and sipping mezcal. Followed by more tacos. And more mezcal.
Once you’ve had your fill you’ve got the likes of Tulum and Oaxaca to navigate – their ruins are literally the stuff of ancient history. And then there are the beaches, or playas, along the Carribean Coast. Both will blow your mind.
Mexico’s the kind of place that gets better the more you get involved.
So, y’know, get involved.
What people say
Mexico and Belize are HOT! Be prepared to sweat. Guatemala is a much cooler climate so bring warm clothes. Practice Spanish or get a phrase book if you have an opportunity.
Mexico travel highlights
Try traditional mole Poblano in Puebla
Who ever thought chocolate, chilli and chicken could go together? Mexicans, that’s who (those foodie visionaries)
Haggle for a bargain at an Oaxaca market
Oaxaca’s handicraft markets are the perfect place to pick up some cheap and cheerful textiles and mingle with Zapotec and Mixtec Indians

Essential Central America, January 2016
Gecko tour offered a really cheap tour that allowed us to see some places that we never thought we would. Our guide ensured that all precautions were taken to enjoy a safe and exciting trip! If I had one tip I would definitely recommend upgrading to private transport where you can.
