    A lot of people will enter Mexico via the world’s largest city, with 23 million inhabitants, Mexico City. I did and opted to stay in the Zocalo, the cities principal plaza. Adjacent is partially excavated remains of the Templo Mayor (Great Temple), the centre of religious life in the old Aztec capital, and an adjoining museum displays items that testify to the splendour of that civilization. Surrounded by many excavated ruins and places of historical significance.

    The city is full of awesome museums and sites to see. The easiest way I found to see them all is to jump on and off the big red open-top bus. This runs around most of the city and is affordable and easy. Another must do is, head out to the vast ruins of Tenochtitlan. 

    Tenochtitlan

    From Mexico, I headed south-east to Oaxaca. it’s another great place to get mad cultural both by looking at the museums and architecture and by sampling its regional food. 

    Again, I found accommodation in the Zocalo. With its numerous eateries, cafes and bars it is the perfect place to do relax and take everything in! 

    The Pacific coast was the next stop, and the thriving town and surf hot spot of Puerto Escondido. The waves were big and pros such as Beth Hamilton were there to ride the ‘Mexico Pipeline’. 

    A short bus ride east down the road is the quiet village of Mazunte, in the past a base for the (now illegal) turtle and turtle egg trade. It’s now a great place to go swimming with turtles and dolphins, or hop around the rocks fishing, then take your catch to the bar on the beach and they’ll cook it up for you.
