Winters in Michigan are brutally cold and harsh, with snow and ice everywhere most of the time. So to me, the best reason to visit Mexico is the weather! It’s wonderful to bask in the warm sun for a week before heading back to the snow and ice.


The Exchange Rate

Because of the currency exchange rate, your American dollar will buy a lot in Mexico. You won’t notice a big difference in airfare, but meals, hotel, drinks, and shopping for souvenirs will be a lot less expensive. So go ahead and splurge on that sombrero salt and pepper shaker set for your mom.


The History

If you’re interested in ancient history and archaeology, you must visit Mexico. It’s home to so many archaeological sites, and most of them are accessible to the public.


The Beaches

So many of Mexico’s beaches are gorgeous, with cool blue water and soft white sand beaches. There are a number of resorts and hotels right on the beach, too, so when you’re booking our hotel, check the map to see where it is…


The Cuisine

I love Mexican food, and if you stray from the beaten tourist path, you’re bound to find great food at small restaurants. Be careful of drinking the water, though. The local population has had time to develop resistance to water-borne illnesses, but your delicate American digestive system hasn’t, and a bad case of dysentery can ruin your entire trip.


The Culture

The Mexican culture is full of so many unique traditions, and if you travel there during the right time of year, you might experience some of them for yourself! Don’t expect an Americanized version of Cinco de Mayo, though… but enjoy the celebrations of loved ones lost on Dia de los Muertos.


The Night Life!

Mexico may be the perfect place for a relaxing beach vacation, or a historical adventure, but it’s also a wonderful place to go for a fun night life getaway! So be sure to pack your hottest clubbing outfits, and be ready to party!

With so many marvelous reasons to visit Mexico, maybe you shouldn’t wait for February! Have you been to Mexico? What did you love (or not love) about it? Please share!

...And the people. You will find a lot of kind and friendly people. I thank you all for this post. After all the bad publicity we received. Really Mexico is a safe and very nice place to visit.
