Four Awesome Mexico Destinations to Visit with Your Friends


Planning a trip with friends can be hard! So many people to please and different opinions to take into consideration. It can be difficult to even know where to start when organizing a vacation with a group of friends. Mexico has such rich nature, culture, gastronomy and endless locations for entertainment and activities that you are sure to find something to please everyone. Here are some ideas that you might not have considered yet which we think will be perfect for a group vacation!


Real de Catorce

In the hills of San Luis Potosi, there is a mystical town with incredible views of the surrounding landscapes and mountains. Real de Catorce was one a wealthy silver-mining town which was abandoned when the price of silver plummeted and was left as a ghost town with quiet cobbled streets and gradually decaying buildings. It’s possible to take a group ghost tour during which you’ll explore this Magic Town and hear stories about the abandoned mines. Nearby there is the sacred place of Wirikuta which is a ceremonial center popular for many pilgrims who come in search of the town’s healing power. You can also climb the mountains and enjoy the views or take a jeep up the winding roads and enjoy the surrounding nature.




For a slice of adventure, some water sports, natural beauty and also rest and relaxation, Bacalar is perfect! The lagoon of seven colors is one of the most beautiful places to visit in the Yucatan Peninsula. The freshwater lake with all shades of blue, green and turquoise looks just like the Caribbean Sea and is surrounded by mangroves and jungle. This is a very eco-friendly destination as it’s still a relatively small town center with a fort that overlooks both the town and the stunning lagoon. It’s the perfect location to do some watersports, including kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding and much more. You can even zipline over the lagoon!



Barrancas del Cobre

Taking El Chepe train through the Copper Canyon and the great Sierra Madre from Chihuahua to Los Mochis is a totally unique experience and one that is becoming more popular with foreign visitors to northern Mexico. Along the train route, you can make one or two stops and we recommend spending a couple of days at Barrancas de Cobre. Here there are many exhilarating activities such as zip lining across the canyon, taking walks to nearby towns to meet the local Tarahumara people, rock climbing and trekking through the forests.




Famous as the birthplace of the national drink of Mexico, you might be surprised by how much there is to do and see in the town of Tequila in the state of Jalisco. In 2006, this town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is full of local cantinas and distilleries all open and eager to share with visitors the story of Tequila. One of the most exciting ways to sample some tequila is to take the Jose Cuervo train tour which takes you to a distillery and out into the agave fields. The town itself is picturesque with rustic buildings and cobbled streets with the backdrop of hills lined with blue agave plants. What better way to relax with friends than over a shot of local tequila?
