Ever though of holidaying in Mexico?
Lots of us plan our holidays way in advance but where’s the spontaneity in that? I guess it is because we want to have the best holiday possible and actually, sometimes the planning is half the fun…And booking ahead for somewhere like Mexico can guarantee getting on of the vest hotels, the most coveted activities booked in advance and sometimes getting a bit more value for money…
Imagine it! Laying back in one of the gorgeous hammocks at the resort you are staying in, a cool drink in one hand and a book in another – not a care in the world! Thinking of visiting Mexico? Then read on…
What do you think about adventurous holidays?
This is how an adventure vacation can be thought of – months of exciting preparation followed by countless weeks of anticipation and anxiety. Over the last year, I have been really missing this and I am so looking forward to planning again…
Now when we talk about holidays, some people think that they need to travel across the globe to find a desert island to enjoy but that isn’t always the case (no pun intended)!
Spending oodles of money just to get them there can sometimes be worth it but it really depends where you are going…
Many people prefer going to more luxurious and popular places without considering those that could offer exciting adventure and interesting places to visit. Nowadays, when you talk about people missing things that are right under their noses, I’m talking about missing out on a good place to go to for a vacation. Some people spend too much of their time looking away to places like France, Italy, London etc. etc. when some of the good places to go to are just a border away in Mexico.
So what is that we love about Mexico?
Though we must admit not all of Mexico is for holiday makers, there are many places in the heartland of Mexico that are not really for tourist and their vacation getaways. Some are cruel realities of life that really require the attention of the government. Mexico is a really nice place to be in because of the virgin forests and the beautiful beaches, but if there would be any improvement in the tourism scene in Mexico, it has to start now.
Anyway, one of the few places that really deserve hats off is a place called San Blas, Mexico. Long before Spanish settlers set foot in this little gateway to California, people have already started settling here. Some people speculate that the lost civilization of the Incas may have been from there once.
It may not be as popular as Cancun but it does hold it own brand of notoriety especially for birds. Yes that’s right birds. Many of the bird watching enthusiast flock to this little barrio surrounded by forests, lagoons, mangroves and endless islets that serve as excellent breeding grounds for both exotic and local species of birds.
The ruins at Fort San Basilio
Another attraction here are the ruins of Fort San Basilio built atop of a steep hill the La Contaduria. Imagine yourself on an adventure vacation high above the expanse of the town and the harbor. A good place to see the whole town and the beach, a good thing about it is that it’s not too far away unlike when you need to have your fix on.
Here, you can enjoy not just a peaceful environment but also a feeling of self-fulfillment and utmost relaxation.
