Why Mexico For Adventure Travel
Since almost every known ecosystem is found in Mexico, there’s no other country in North or Central America that offers so much for adventure travelers—everything from tundra, to high sierra, to rainforest, where authentic experience awaits—unlike anyone else’s, unlike any you’ve known. Desert stargazing amid centuries-old cacti; silent canoe trips through near-impenetrable mangroves; heart-stopping races down river rapids. Sheer canyon cliffs, coral reefs, jungle spelunking, hardcore mountain ascents. And (practically) all creatures great and small, from delicate monarch butterflies to so-ugly-they’re cute javelinas, playful howler monkeys and the ultimate seducers: Mexico’s magnificent jungle cats. Take a walk on Mexico’s wild side—it’s an adventure that never ends.
The Adventure You Thought You Knew
Adventure travel in Mexico is so much more than parasailing and banana boats. There's an authentic, world-class outdoor experience—something you never dreamt of doing—just a short hop from every beach, town and city. You ascend, dive, fly or explore with the experts, yet you're kicking back in the comfort of your hotel or campsite by nightfall. And if you need to go deeper, Mexico is ready, in off-the-track bioreserves, remote wilderness areas and undiscovered seashores that become your private paradise. Here, it's not about package deals and bus rides with looky-loos: your Mexico adventure means a new personal best—where you learn as much about yourself as you do about the incredible sights and experiences that surround you.
There is Nothing Closer Than Mexico
You could haul to the other side of the world, but why? Almost every Mexico adventure—from swimming beneath a waterfall or tagging sea turtles, scaling volcanoes or rappelling with hundreds of parrots—is little more than a five-hour flight from anywhere in the US or Canada. We wouldn’t blame you for coming every weekend—with Mexico you’re moved to return, time and again. And there’s another kind of proximity when it comes to Mexico: the close ties our culture and people share. Post-adventure, you’ll find gracious hospitality, smiling faces, shared experiences and the delicious regional cuisines that make Mexico one of the most surprising and beloved places on the planet. After your hardcore time in the field, is there anything sweeter than your soft Mexico landing?
Thirty Centuries of Culture In One Place
Not least of all, in Mexico, when the adventure ends, cultural pleasures begin. You learn about Lacandon civilization as you whitewater raft with its modern-day inhabitants. Or enrich your own spiritual perspective by living the Maya world vision as you explore the jungles surrounding its most historic cities. You’ll always have amazing conversations with the people you meet along the way. And even the food teaches you something about Mexico’s rich culture and astounding biodiversity. Sure, there’s stuff to do in any country—but there’s no other country like unique, colorful, transformative Mexico.
