There are hundreds of different questions that start with “why” when preparing for a trip. Mexico is by no means the most popular destination among domestic travelers, so it can be difficult to find information about it, at least in an organized way. In this LCNOutdoors article, we’ll discuss what common questions you’ll encounter when traveling to Mexico.
What Language is Spoken in Mexico?
The official language of Mexico is Spanish. Not the Spanish spoken in Spain, but the Spanish spoken in Mexico. Not that they are very different from each other, but there are differences. In what way? The first is pronunciation. Mexicans are much more careless in this regard. With them, everything is simple: how to write, how to read, without any extra effort. Secondly, in using different words and structures for some of the same things. To be frank, it’s like British English and American English.
By the way, English is hardly spoken in Mexico. The exception is the resorts, where the flow of tourists is so high that you have to learn English on demand. Even so, it is not every resident of Cancun or Playa.
Not at all familiar with the language of Hernán Cortés? No problem, in a recent article I have shown you how to master spoken Spanish fairly quickly.
What Continent is Mexico On?
Mexico is fairly well nestled in the southern part of North America. It is also part of Latin America, but this is not related to the continents.
What is the Weather Like in Mexico?
It is not the same. It depends entirely on the time of year. In Mexico, you can distinguish between winter, spring, summer, and autumn, but, naturally, they are not the same as in Africa.
The best time for a beach vacation. This is the dry season when rainfall is minimal and sunny, sunny days are at their best. In December, January and February, you can plan your vacation in Mexico. However, keep in mind that many cities can get quite hot during this time.
In March and April, the weather stays more or less the same, although there may be more cloudy days, still not much rain. They start in May.
The summer months are considered to be the rainy season. You can plan your Mexican vacation during them but at your own risk. But there is a “but”! For example, my teammates and I were in Tulum, Cancun, and Playa del Carmen in June and it only rained a few times during the month. The rest of the time the weather was very nice. So maybe the devil isn’t so bad?
The weather remained average in September with frequent rain storms and, if we were unlucky, October could be the same. However, in general, October and November are considered acceptable times to visit Mexico. It is still not as hot as winter, which means it will be easier to cope with drastic climate changes, especially in the cities.
What Time of Year is It in Mexico?
Mexico has as many as three time zones, but visitors are mostly restricted to one time zone, including Mexico City, Oaxaca, and Cancun. It is the central time zone. In Mexico, the winter time zone is UTC-06:00 and the summer time zone is UTC-05:00, which means that the winter and summer times are converted. Winter time: November to March. Daylight saving time: April to October.
What Currency is Used in Mexico?
The currency in Mexico is the Mexican peso (MXN).
Which Sea is Mexico?
The Caribbean Sea
The Caribbean Sea washes over Mexico in the east, from Cancun to Chetumal. The most famous Mexican resorts are located here.
Gulf of Mexico
It is not officially a sea, but the Gulf washes much of the eastern coastline.
What Does the Ocean Look Like in Mexico?
The Pacific Ocean. Its waters lap Mexico to the west and south from the United States to Guatemala. The Pacific coast is home to resorts such as Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco, Puerto Escondido, and Puerto Ángel.
What Cities Are There in Mexico?
There are many of them in Mexico. The most popular destinations are Guadalajara, Guanajuato, Querétaro, Morelia, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico City, Puebla, Oaxaca, San Cristobal de las Casas, Campeche, Mérida, Valladolid, and Cancun. In this article, I have compiled a small overview of Mexican cities.
Do I Need a Visa to Go to Mexico?
You can enter Mexico with a Mexican visa, a valid US visa, or an electronic permit. In the notes, I describe all three options and share my personal experience in obtaining a Mexican visa and a U.S. visa.
You are an American and for information on specific travel destinations to Mexico, see the state summaries and advisory levels below. Some areas of Mexico have an increased risk of crime and kidnapping.
The official explanation is as follows.
What is the Price Level in Mexico?
It all depends on how much you are willing to spend and what. On a budget, traveling long distances on your own, from one city to another every week, you can get an average of $500-$1000 per month.
What Kind of Fruits Can I Find in Mexico?
Apples, pears, kiwis (mainly imported), watermelons, melons, guavas, mangoes, oranges, tangerines, pineapples, papayas, bananas, strawberries, grapefruit, grapes, papayas. These are the things you can buy at the market. In the stores, the selection is usually smaller.
Which Resort is Better?
It is widely believed that one of the best resorts in Mexico is Cancun. However, in my opinion, this statement is controversial. I suggest you read the posts about resorts in Mexico and form your own opinion.
What is the Best Souvenir to Bring from Mexico?
The main things that tourists bring back from Mexico are wide-brimmed hats, tequila or mescal (or maybe both), ethnic clothing and jewelry, and souvenirs in the form of skulls and skeletons.
