My trip to Mexico? Things to do
we observed already during our first visit, construction of mega resort was in full swing, but I had no idea how quickly the landscape would change. Charming little fishing villages, such as Punta Bete seem completely disappeared. Huge hotel complexes now stand where once were empty Caribbean beaches with little restaurants.
The sites in Mexico such as Chichen Itza, Palenque and Uxmal are fabulous. Merida is a beautiful city, especially on Sunday. However, it is much more expensive than Guatemala, and it also lacks the atmosphere of Guatemala. The Caribbean coast (Playa del Carmen, Tulum) could definitely not deceive us: it is quite expensive and hypertouristic also.Still, we went back to Mexico in 12/99 to end the trip, we had stopped in 1993. From Tikal we went to Bethel, crossed the Usumacinta River in Mexico and then visited Yaxchilan, one of the highlights of our second trip (do not miss). From then on, with toPalenque trip to Agua Azul. Then San Cristobal, Oaxacaand finally Mexico City. I think we “ll need a third trip to visit the Northern part of the country.

Small hotels are still struggling to clean up and rebuild. Financial bankruptcy will only lead to the inevitable, more Mega Resorts.
As an avid traveler, I do not feel good at all-inclusive resorts style. People are not only how to make the most of the buffet and most beverage alcohol ridden in their body in an attempt to get the best tan on in the country they are visiting interested show to get home.I have never understood this kind of travel culture, but when you spend your vacation in comfort and style without having to worry about anything and like if you take group tours exploring a country on like their own to the Mexican Caribbean is just the right place for you. If you are looking for empty beaches and romantic little villages, go somewhere else.
