Spicy tacos and beach life in Mexico

Bienvenido a Mexico, a land of colorful fiestas and steamy rainforests, of spicy tacos and long stretches of powdery white beaches. Mexico is where the old and new collide, where indigenous cultures still practice their traditions and modern hipsters are making new ones. If there's one thing that binds the population together, it's the food. There are few places in the world as passionate about their cuisine as the Mexicans and why shouldn't they be? Complex moles, slow-cooked stews and freshly caught seafood marinated in zingy citrus and chili. Beginning to salivate? Book up a Mexico vacation rental and prepare your taste buds.

Mexico is a vast outdoor adventure playground

Mexico is big. Very big. Its reaches house every imaginable landscape you can think of – smoky volcanoes, glistening lagoons, lush rainforest and cactus-dotted deserts, not to mention the mile upon mile of coast, almost 6,000 miles in fact. This outdoor adventure playground has long drawn in explorers who come to hit the surf, go hiking up the mountains and white-water raft along the meandering rivers. If that all sounds a little too extreme, when you stay at a Mexico vacation rental you can find more sedate activities, like sea kayaking, snorkeling, or simply kicking back on the beach.

Mexico is "The Land of Enchantment"

The Land of Enchantment isn't short on history. Their pre-Hispanic civilizations were busy bees, creating some of the most complex architecture in the ancient world. Much of it still stands today, a testament to their sophisticated civilization. Then, of course, the Spanish arrived and left their own layer of culture that permeated every corner of the land. Some of the nation's greatest cities have at their core an achingly beautiful colonial old town, one of the best places to look for a Mexico vacation rental. Modern Mexico continues to inspire and enrich, with a thriving art scene, in part due to the works of Frida Kahlo.

Mexico's varied and changeable climate

The country's span means several different climates that change throughout the year. The mountains and Mexico City can get chilly in the winter, while the coasts stay warm pretty much year-round. As a general rule of thumb, try to score a Mexico vacation rental in the spring months, between March and May, when it's suitably warm wherever you are, and the summer rains have yet to kick in. Other than the Caribbean coast, which sees the odd hurricane between June and November, there's no other time that's off limits and you'll always have something to see or do.

Wildlife lovers will love Mexico

This vast land is home to more than 10 per cent of the world's biodiversity. Trust us when we say, that's a lot and ranks it as one of the most varied ecosystems on earth. Putting that into perspective, when you stay in a Mexico vacation rental, you could have close wildlife encounters with any of the 200,000 species in 65,000 square miles of protected land. Watch monkeys swinging through the jungle, snorkel with gentle whale sharks and watch roadrunners race in the desert. Needless to say, Mexico is a wildlife lover's dream destination.
