Visiting Mexico for Relaxation: Where to Go

Traveling is one of the ways for people to relax. The world is one big playground to explore, and there are so many places to visit. If you are looking for a spot to rejuvenate, Mexico is one of the best places to go to. If you think that you have seen the best places yet, then wait until you spend time in Mexico. You will surely enjoy it with your family, friends, or even by yourself.

Here are the top places you do not want to miss in Mexico.

Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve

If you want to be fascinated by a view with millions of monarch butterflies, Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve in Michoacan should be on top of your list. Each year during winter, millions of monarch butterflies migrate from eastern Canada to the mountains of western central Mexico.

But do not freak out, because these butterflies are gentle, and you can even touch them as they sometimes land over your shoulders, hands, and head for a closer interaction.

Riviera Maya

If you want a summer getaway or wish to have a sun-kissed glow, have a break from the city and spend some time in the beach paradise, Riviera Maya. It is said to be the extension of Caribbean coastline of Northeastern Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Stay at one of the many Riviera Maya vacation rentals available and enjoy the beach with all the other activities.

San Ignacio Lagoon

If you feel more adventurous than ever, then have a close look at the whales. There are few places in Mexico where you can go whale watching, but nothing compares to San Ignacio Lagoon in the coast of Baja California Sur. It is now said to be the Latin America’s largest wildlife sanctuary.

In winter months, a lot of gray whales give birth in the shallowest parts of the lagoon. You can find tourist guides and boat tours that help and allow visitors to have a close encounter with the gray whales.


It is the capital and the largest city in Jalisco. It is famous for its mariachi bands, one of a kind architecture, nearby tequila distilleries, and nightlife. This place gives the vibes of both traditional and modern lifestyle– some Guadalajara natives (Tapatíos) don sombreros while others are now comfortable with their mini-skirts. Here, you will get a taste of a more authentic Mexican experience with a twist.

Catedral Metropolitana

With all the places and things to do in Mexico, this should still be on your top list to visit. Catedral Metropolitana is the largest and oldest cathedral in Latin America. Tourists are attracted because of its style from the influences of Mexican churrigueresque and baroque. Here, you can both relax your mind and soul.

These are only a few of the most visited places in Mexico. You can visit more places depending on how much your time can accommodate. Live your life to the fullest. Explore, enjoy, and be adventurous!
