The dreamiest destination - Why we travel to Mexico
The land of your dreams
We leave today for breathtaking Mexico. Mexico is not called “the dreamiest destination” for nothing. Mexico has been our dream destination for a very long time. We immediately think of Mexico as waving palm trees, pearly white beaches and lots of good food. And southern music! But there’s more to offer. Here we tell you why we are traveling to Mexico and why you should put this country on your bucket list right now (if you haven’t already)!
Culture in Mexico
Mexico has a rich history when it comes to culture. Several countries, including Spain, USA and even Africa have helped shape Mexico’s culture. Just think of the numerous remaining Mayan temples scattered like ruins all over the country.
In Mexico they speak Spanish. Yet this Spanish is a different kind of Spanish than they speak in Spain. Mexican-Spanish has influences from Native American languages and the pronunciation is also often different. We do like the Mexican-Spanish language.
Most Mexicans were raised Catholic which is similar towards our culture. We also love the music genres from Mexico. There is a huge variety of music styles including son, polka, latino, pop, rock, … And that’s just like ours but even more varied!
Another reason we love Mexican culture so much is because Mexico is very welcoming. Family is considered the most important thing and Mexicans love to be together. Traditions are still followed. Just think of the day they commemorate the dead.
In terms of food and drink, you have plenty of choices. Mexico has one of the most diverse cuisines in the world. Mexican food is inspired by Spanish ingredients, but Indian ingredients are especially prevalent in the cuisine. Think tomatoes, peppers, avocado and, of course, chocolate. Typical specialties from Mexico are tacos and enchiladas. Typical Mexican drinks are mainly the well-known liquor tequila and also Corona beer. Both are from Mexico.
Landscape and climate
Mexico is almost completely surrounded by water. To the north the country borders the United States and to the south Guatemala and Belize. These are also very beautiful countries.
Mexico has a diverse landscape. It is a relatively large country so it is also normal to find mountains, beaches as well as jungle. We love Mexico so much because of the beautiful nature. There is a lot of greenery to see but also fantastic beaches. Some towns and villages are also very beautiful because of the colorful views.
Because Mexico is relatively large, the country also has different climates. You will find desert and steppe climates, Mediterranean climates and tropical (rainforest) climates. In general, it can be said that it is southern hot in Mexico. Especially the summer months can be hot with temperatures past 30°C. Please note that hurricanes and tropical storms do occur during this season! In the north, it sometimes even snows.
Mexico is a wonderful country because of all its assets that come together. The southern music, the traditions, the history, the food and drink, the traditions and the climate make this a dream destination for us. All these factors make it a country worth visiting at least once in your lifetime. The atmosphere and vibes in Mexico attracts us greatly. Truly the dreamiest destination.
