TAXIS

Cabs are a good way to get around in Mexico, and even more so in the cities, as they allow you to move quickly from one place to another. Of course, you have to be aware of the traffic, since sometimes even walking can get you to a place faster than traveling in a car. 

UBER

If you are looking for a place to sleep in Chiapas, a perfect place is Casa Janaab Palenque since it is in a very good location, but if you prefer a quieter place with swimming pool included, then you should look at the Cabañas Kin Balam Palenque.

RIVIERA MAYA AND CANCUN

If you want to enjoy the diversity of ecosystems in Mexico, a place you should visit is: the Riviera Maya, in the state of Yucatan and the beaches of Quintana Roo.

There you can enjoy the different beaches, archeological sites such as Chichen Itza, Uxmal, as well as islands and cenotes found in this area of Mexico.

To sleep in Riviera Maya we recommend the Hacienda Real del Caribe Hotel or, if you prefer, you can also rent an apartment on Airbnb. To move to your hotel the ideal is to use a private Cancun airport transportation service that leaves to your destination.

TULUM

We already told you that Mexico is a country rich in history, and this is something that can be appreciated in the different archaeological sites in the territory.

One of them is the archaeological site of Tulum, this was a Mayan city built in front of the sea, although the precise use of this city is still a mystery.

It is also the only place in this part of Mexico where you can enjoy paradisiacal beaches without sargassum or seaweed.

The small city of Taxco in the state of Guerrero, minutes away from Cacahuamilpa, is one of the places you must visit in Mexico.

Although not everyone talks about this place, it is worth a visit, especially for its history and tradition of silver work, which is why it is known as the city of silver.

Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, as well as the surrounding areas, are a very complete tourist destination for people of all ages. This area of Mexico is very famous for whale watching and its dream beaches, although there is much more to discover.

Due to its location between the desert and the Sea of Cortez, this destination, beyond beautiful beaches, offers landscapes like few other places in Mexico.

There are many luxury hotels in Los Cabos, but if you are looking to forget about everything and get rid of that stress, the best option is to stay in an all-inclusive hotel. For a complete experience, we suggest you use the Cabo airport shuttle to your hotel, and get a better experience.
