Why visiting Mexico will change your views on the wall

Everybody has heard crazy things about Mexico. And especially lately, where Mexico has been targeted as a country of immigrants and criminals. But how much do you really know about what’s in Mexico? Whatever is south, and everything that is hidden in this Latin American but North American country. Care not for actions and “facts” that seek to destroy those who inhabit this nation, and proud Mexicans (like myself) won’t ever let that happen.

Aside from all the politics of bringing good of bad publicity about a country, the truth is that not many people see Mexico as a destination if it is not for parties, Spring break or God-distilled tequila, but the former Aztec empire has so much more to offer.

Now, why is Mexico such a great destination for your next trip?

  1. Not everything south of the border is as bitter as they say. In bordering states such as Baja California, you can find Tijuana (Yes, the very famous city), and Chihuahua. Paradises for people looking for an escape.

With jungles, forests, beaches and mountains, Mexico is more than a perect destination. A few miles apart, you can find a forest, a beach or a cosmopolitan city.

Mexico not only has top-notch highways, flyovers and transport services. The cities are active at night and display a huge amount of activities.

15. Are people friendly in Mexico? 

Not only are people friendly, Mexicans have a good heart! They will always receive visitors or people coming over almost as family, every time. Mexicans love to make friends, to show friends around, and to share everything about Mexico.
