    Mexico has a wide variety of places to visit, from Mayan or Aztec ruins to great beaches.

    Mexican people are very hospitable (a large amount of Mexican economy is based on tourism).

    You can visit quiet, traditional, towns or small cities such as San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Dolores Hidalgo, Tuxtla Gutierrez in Chiapas, Aguascalientes, Zacatecas, and find handicrafts, stoned streets, typical Mexican constructions from 100 to 500 years ago. Delicious Mexican dishes (which by the way won't make you sick- that is just a common belief from Hollywood).

    You can visit Vallarta, Cancun, Isla Mujeres, Nuevo Vallarta, Acapulco, Puerto Escondido, Tulum, Playa del Carmen, Los Cabos, Manzanillo, Mazatlan, Ixtapa, etc... All of these are incredible beaches with a nice weather and incredible scenery.

    You can go to jungle adventures in Vallarta, Chiapas, Oaxaca.

    You can visit Mexico City and go to the Anthropology Museum, Teotihuacan (20 minutes away), Chapultepec, Temple Mayor, Museo Rufino Tamayo, etc.

    So Mexico is a great place to visit, people live in peace and have a normal life, they are kind and helpful with tourists and you will have a great time.

    I am Mexican been there 14 times, it is a very hard working but not uptight society. Mexico is not that poor but there is more poverty than in the United States and I never really see children or people begging for money but rather selling foods or candies and crafts on the streets. Mexican people are also very hospitable and the country has much to see like pre Colombian cities and buildings and colonial architecture, the cities are nice and homes In mexico are beautiful and all custom made by their owner unless it is infonavit.

    Overall Mexico is worth it just make sure you go to a safer part because la Tierra muy peligrossa.

    I'm mexican-american and i've been to mexico every year since i was a little girl.

    The differences that i've noticed is 1), the traffic!

    I stay most of the time in Mexico city(D.F)..and the traffic there is total chaos compared to the U.S.

    Imagine New York city's traffic, and multiply that by a 100...that's what mexico cities traffic is like...i wouldn't dare drive in Mexico.

    2)...there's a lot more freedom in mexico to sell food on the streets compared to the U.S.

    Here there are so many regulations and forms needed to be filled out so you can have your own little business. In mexico, you'll find just about everything being sold on the street.

    3). all throughout you'll see homeless children begging on the streets for money. in the U.S. you'll never see a child on the street begging for may see an adult, but never a child.

    4). there are taxis EVERYWHERE in mexico, all you have to do is raise your hand in the street and a taxi will stop to pick you up. Unless you're in New York City, you'll have to call and make pre-arrangements to have a cab come pick you up.

    5). getting around in Mexico is quite easy because there are soooo many taxis, buses, microbuses, and subways you can take...and it's also cheap.

    I can go on forever about this, but if there's something specific you'd like to know, feel free to look at my profile and email me...

    There are lot of beautiful beaches in Mexico like Playa del Carmen Beach, which is a popular destination for tourists. Mexicans are quite conservative and sunbathing topless on the beach is frowned upon.
