Top 8 Incredible Destinations in Mexico (PDF Chapters) Lonely Planet

1. Copper Canyon & Northern Mexico (PDF Chapter) Lonely Planet

This is the Copper Canyon & Northern Mexico chapter from Lonely Planet’s Mexico guidebook.

Welcome to frontier land. Mexico’s wild north has, for centuries, been frequented by revolutionaries, bandits, law-makers and law-breakers. The country’s most progressive, culturally rich cities are here, as are some of its most non-Westernized indigenous peoples. It’s a place where, like desperados of times past, you’ll find yourself lingering for longer than you anticipated.

2. Oaxaca - Mexico (Chapter) Lonely Planet

The state of Oaxaca has a special magic felt by Mexicans and foreigners alike. A redoubt of indigenous culture, it’s home to the country’s most vibrant crafts and art scene, some outstandingly colorful festivities, a uniquely savory cuisine and varied natural riches.

3. Yucatan Peninsula - Oaxaca (PDF Chapter) Lonely Planet

With charming colonial cities, world-famous Mayan ruins, thumping nightlife centers, sleepy backcountry villages, talcum-powder beaches leading onto crystal turquoise waters and more dive sites than you could possibly cram into one vacation, the Yucatán is one sweet destination.

4. Chiapas - Mexico (PDF Chapter) Lonely Planet

Chilly pine-forest highlands, sultry rainforest jungles and attractive colonial cities exist side by side in Mexico’s southernmost state, a region awash with the legacy of Spanish rule and the remnants of ancient Maya civilization.

5. Central Pacific Coast - Mexico (Chapter) Lonely Planet

Those gigantic aquamarine waves keep rolling in, as they have forever along Mexico’s central Pacific coast. It’s the primal rhythm backing any visit to this land of stunning beaches and giant sunsets.

6. Veracruz - Mexico (Chapter) Lonely Planet

Imagine a mini-version of Machu Picchu but without the tourists, a ballroom dance with a sexy Afro-Cuban twist and a mountain as fickle and majestic as Kilimanjaro – you’ll find all this and more on Mexico’s central Gulf coast, where the runaway juggernaut called ‘global homogenization’ gets stopped in it tracks.

7. Mexico City - Lonely Planet: Mexico  (Chapter)

Mexico City is cleaning up its act. Revamped public spaces are springing back to life, the culinary scene is exploding and a cultural renaissance is blooming. A stroll through the buzzing downtown area reveals the city’s storied history, from pre-Hispanic underpinnings to an unabashed contemporary edge.

8. Western Central Highlands - Mexico (PDF Chapter) Lonely Planet

Brimming with exquisite colonial architecture, delicious food, butterfly orgies, lonely indigenous pueblos, bustling cities and volcanic calderas, Mexico’s western central highlands are a true wonderland.
