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.

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.
