Planning a trip to Mexico? This is an amazing country in Latin America that we can’t get enough of! Here’s where you can find our best Mexico travel tips, island guides, and much more.

Over the years, we’ve been to Mexico multiple times together. We actually lived in San Diego for three years and made many weekend trips over the border.

To be honest, sometimes we’d even go to Rosarito just for a taco lunch! We also enjoyed visits to the city of Puerto Vallarta and the fun beach town of Sayulita

Many travelers will start their journey by flying into Tijuana and renting a car, or heading to exotic vacation towns like Cancun, Tulum, and Playa del Carmen. 

You can even hop on a cruise through the country that makes stops in multiple destinations. Mexico is a great place for budget travelers, specifically those who love to eat street food

Check out all our Mexico travel guides for tips, and to hear all about our own experiences. We’re already planning our next Mexico trip, so stay tuned!
