Essentials in Mexico
Chichén Itzá: Chichén Itzá is the most famous and the best of the restored Yucatán Maya sites in Mexico. That being said, it can get really crowded here during peak season. Arrive early in the day to get ahead of the crowds.
Frida Kahlo Museum: If you’re exploring Mexico City, make sure you stop by this museum to pay homage to Mexico’s leading lady: Frida Kahlo. The museum is housed in the “Blue House” where Frida was born and eventually died. The house is littered with her personal belongings; it’s a treasure.
Playa Zicatela: Need a good beach recommendation? Try Playa Zicatela in Puerto Escondido. This is a great place to surf, especially at the northern end of the beach. Swimmers, beware of the undertow!
