Best Attractions in Mexico
Easily one of Mexico’s most-visited tourist attractions, Chichen Itza is among the world’s most impressive archaeological sites and perhaps best known for the towering El Castillo pyramid or Temple of Kukulcan.

Must-See 2020 Events
It’s hard to think of Mexican culture and tradition and not immediately think of Dia de los Muerots or Day of the dead. The three-day Mexican holiday coincides with Halloween in late October and early November and is celebrated throughout the nation with family and friends coming together to pray and remember their loved ones who have passed. Visitors to Mexico in 2020 also won’t want to miss the country’s annual Carnival celebration this February with the biggest parties typically taking place in Mazatlan and Veracruz. Sports fans will have plenty of awesome events to choose from this year as well, including the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship in Naucalpan, Mexico this February and Formula 1’s Mexican Grand Prix this coming fall.
