Oaxaca is the place to visit if you are a confirmed chocoholic.  You can visit chocolate stores and go on a tour of how the beans are transformed into chocolate bars.  The most popular way of having chocolate is as a hot drink, with water, along with a sweet roll.

You can however, get it served with milk or simply as a chocolate bar.

The coastal cities are renowned for its fresh seafood.

Archaeological Wonders

Some of the most interesting destinations in Mexico are the pre-Hispanic sites.  Archaeologists are unsure about who the builders of the pyramids at Teotihuacan were.  However, the site had been abandoned for a very long time by the time the Aztecs came into power and it was said the structures were built by the gods.  The site can be reached quite easily from Mexico City, however, you should be prepared for huge crowds and many vendors.

The Mayan site located in Chiapas, Palenque, is very interesting and extremely impressive.  It is located in the country’s interior which means it would take some driving to reach it.  The seclusion of the site in the jungle region makes it a perfect destination for the more adventurous visitor.

Swimming

Mexico has a range of beaches to choose from and this is what draws most tourists to the country.  The abundance of water has given the country the opportunity to create attractive theme parks.

Guanajato city has splendid historical sites. My visit to Juarez Theater and Diego Rivera House Museum granted me one of those serene moments to reconnect with humans’ past that I never got to live.
