Pacific Coast – Tropical beaches on Mexico’s southern coast; *Jalisco (map) the birthplace of mariachi and Tequila; *Guadalajara (map), the nation’s second largest city; and the *Oaxacan highlands, famous for their distinct cuisine.

Yucatán and the South. The *Yucatán was the home of the Maya civilization before it was conquered by the Spanish Conquistadors in the 16th century. *Quintana Roo (map) – heavy tourist traffic is lured to the northeast of the state, notably by the infamous party city of Cancún, but also by the endless gorgeous Caribbean white sand beaches, some of the world’s greatest scuba diving, beautiful cenotes, and a few excellent Mayan sites.

Stay in populated areas, avoid poor neighborhoods, especially at night, and don’t walk there at any time if you are alone.

Some parts of Mexico are known for travelers’ diarrhea, often called “Montezuma’s Revenge” (Venganza de Moctezuma). The reason for this is not so much the spicy food but the contamination of the water supply in some of the poorer zones in Mexico.
