Why I Love Culture-Combined In Mexico?

Why I Love Culture-Combined In Mexico?

Sep 27, 2014

Mexico is where one can find the traditional Mexican culture combined with the elements of North American and Spanish perfectly. I love this country because it’s one of the most vibrant and colorful countries I have ever visited. The addition of Mexico into my travel itinerary never make me regret my decision. From the seediness of Tijuana, the lively nightclubs in Cancun, Mayan ruins and even the rainforests filled with howler monkeys and parrots, Mexico is not just culture-combined but beyond that. Let’s take a look at the costs of traveling there then. Cost of Accommodation Mexico is pretty popular among tourists. It’s not a surprise to find most of the hostels in the city can be around USD15 per night, but in smaller cities, the rate can be as low as USD10 for each night. If you’re looking for budget hotels in Mexico, expect to pay for about USD60 per night. This is for a double-occupancy room. If you manage to find some homestays or couchsurfing opportunities, that would be better. It means you’ll be saving more on your budget. Although Mexico is relatively cheap in term of budgeting. (image by :University of Nottingham ) Cost of Mexican Food I love Mexican food. It’s the second thing I love after Chinese, I suppose. Besides, eating out in Mexico is very affordable with local markets and street vendors everywhere. I spent only about USD15 per day when I bought food from these food-dealers. Sometimes I would be spending lesser than that. But if you’re heading to some of the tourist areas with nice sit-down restaurants, the cost for food is about USD25 per meal. The best part about Mexico is I could get cheap bad-ass tequila for only USD15! Cost of Transportation and Activities For longer journeys by buses, the fares for tickets vary according to the distance and popularity of the destination and route taken. I paid USD30 for a ride from 5.5 hour journey from Puerto Vallarta to Guadalajara. In most major cities, the taxi will charge starting from USD1 per ride. As for the activities in Mexico, diving is probably the most expensive activity in Mexico. The cost of a day-trip...
