How to Visit Mexico on a Budget This Spring

If you are looking for an ideal getaway destination this spring, look no further than our own neighborhood. Mexico is a country rich in historical landmarks, lush nature, rich culture, wild nightlife and unique cuisine. The best part about visiting Mexico is that it doesn’t have to cost a lot.

There are a lot of things to explore in this country. From ancient ruins to the best beaches in the world, Mexico has it all. If you’re planning on visiting Mexico.

Here are a couple of pointers on how to enjoy your vacation on a budget.

Pick an Ideal Destination

One of the most popular destinations in Mexico is the Yucatan peninsula. This area showcases Mexico in the best light possible, with lots of impeccable beaches, untouched nature and preserved ruins. Yucatan is also extremely affordable.

So why isn’t it more popular?

Well, rumors about increased criminal activity in Mexico deters a lot of tourists from visiting this country. However, the crime rates in areas such as the Yucatan peninsula are no higher than they are in some parts of the US.

If you decide to visit Yucatan, you can rest assured as chances of running into criminals or dangerous situations is close to none.

Choose Your Transportation

A lot of tourists visiting Mexico on a budget travel there by a budget plane or by car, and use the Mexican public transport while in the country. The reasons are numerous, from the fact that the public transport is affordable to the difficulties of mastering the Mexican traffic.

Before you leave, plan which places you are going to visit and make a list of public transports you can take there. Look into the most affordable taxis, but avoid wild taxis as they can charge a lot.

If you plan on braving the Mexican traffic and using your own car in Mexico, make sure you have a valid Mexican insurance policy, as your US policy doesn’t cover you while visiting the country.

Lodging

When it comes to lodging, your choices are endless. From affordable hostels, to reasonably-priced resorts, Airbnb rentals or couch surfing. Mexican people are very hospitable and will make sure you enjoy your stay there.

However, keep in mind that the prices tend to increase during the holiday seasons. Take your time to look at all the offers and you’re sure to find hostels as high as $15 or resorts ranging from $200 to $500 if you want to treat yourself.

Food

It might be both cheap and tempting to live off of tacos and other food you can find on a fast food stand at nearly every corner, but Mexican cuisine is so diverse and so unique that you’d be really missing out on a lot.

You can find a lot of affordable restaurants offering traditional Mexican meals rich in spices and savory side dishes. We promise, the $5 to $10 you pay for a meal will be the best money you’ve spent there.
