Traveling for business can be great for visiting new parts of the world. And in Mexico you can explore major cities, mountainous landscapes, gorgeous coastlines, archaeological sites, lakes and waterfalls, the list is endless. So wherever you are in Mexico, there are plenty of things to do whilst taking some time off from your busy work schedule. Here is our guide to some of the best ways to de-stress in Mexico during your next business trip.
Sightseeing in Mexico City
Mexico City is Mexico’s top business destination bringing visitors from all over the world for meetings, negotiations and events. But while you’re here, take time to step out of the center and visit some of the other neighbourhoods such as Coyoacan for some peace and quiet and also some of the best museums in the city, Roma for amazing food or even to the ruins of Teotihuacan, a UNESCO World Heritage site!
Beach Life in the Riviera Maya
Cancun is another popular business trip destination with some of the most amazing 5* all-inclusive resorts in the country. Come and soak up some Mexican sun while you make your way between business meetings and enjoy a colorful cocktail on the sand. Make a trip to one of the nearby archeological sites such as Tulum, Coba, Ek Balam or the famous Chichen Itza. Or visit some of the best beaches in the world on the islands of Isla Mujeres, Cozumel and Holbox – come at the right time of year and swim with the whale sharks!
Tequila Tasting in Guadalajara
If you’re in Guadalajara then you can’t miss the opportunity to explore some of the other sites of the state of Jalisco such as the town of Tequila, famous for Mexico’s popular liquor. Visit a distillery, explore the town and of course, make sure to try some of the best Tequila in the country. Other things to do in Jalisco include visiting the ruins of Guachimontones, exploring the lake of Ajijic or simply exploring the vibrant city center of Guadalajara.
Museums of Monterrey
Mexico’s third largest city has a great downtown filled with small squares and many museums. This includes the Metropolitan Museum of Monterrey, Museo de Historia Mexicana and the Museo del Vidrio.
Culture in Merida
In the past few years Merida has gone from a sleepy city to a vibrant cultural capital. If you’re here on business then make sure to enjoy Yucatan’s food, visit the cantinas in the city center and the pleasant squares. You can also visit nearby beaches which are much quieter than those along the Riviera Maya.
