Mexico has something for everyone. From partying on the beaches of Cancun and Puerto Vallarta to exploring Mayan ruins or sinking your teeth into cheap and tasty tortillas, Mexico can meet the needs from the cheapest budget traveler to the wealthiest resort socialite.
Grab a cheap flight to Mexico and you will soon be delighted by the eclectic culture found south of the border. With daily non-stop flights from most major American cities, there is no excuse not to relish the many splendors that Mexico has to offer.
From world-class resorts to budget beach bungalows, Mexico has accommodations for every lifestyle and bank account. Mexico is enjoyable year-round, but as far as climate, October to May is generally the most pleasant time to visit. Facilities are often heavily booked during the week before Easter and Christmas/New Year, the peak domestic travel periods. Be aware that during these busy times, there may be a dramatic increase in the cost of budget accommodations.
Cheap food abounds in Mexico and a budget traveler doesn't have to work very hard to find a delicious bargain meal. The main concern is the hygiene of the establishment and that should be prioritized over price. It's worth paying a few extra pesos for a burrito to avoid losing days of your vacation to Montezuma's revenge.
When discussing pyramids, most people immediately think of Egypt. Mexico can boast of several pyramids and is actually home to the world's largest, the Quetzalcóatl Pyramid at Cholula de Rivadiais. The most famous and best restored of the Yucatan Peninsula's Mayan sites is Chichen Itza with it's magnificent Pyramid of Kukulcan. Easily accessible from Cancun, budget travelers can arrange for a day trip to Chichen Itza by renting a car. Many budget hotels offer discount rental car services, but it's best to shop around before committing.
