Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The well-known travel site Tripadvisor named 10 destinations in the world that are getting more and more popular to visit. Mexico and Australia both have two destinations within the top 10, competing with Mar de Plata in Argentina, Sao Paulo in Brazil, and Kiev, Ukrain, among others. This just goes to show that are more exciting travel destinations to discover in Mexico than just its beautiful beach resorts.
Mexico City has become one of the most requested destinations, says Astrid van Dam, owner of Superior Tours Vallarta, who sells a lot of tours to Mexico City. The City improved tremendously under the Administration of Marcelo Ebrard, the former Mayor who, in 2010, was awarded the World Mayor prize by the City Mayors Foundation, an international think tank dedicated to local government.
Mexico City is actually now one of the safest cities within Mexico, very advanced in recycling projects, and an example for many cities within Mexico and beyond. It must have been quiet a challenge to improve a city of over 25 million people so much in so few years!
"The City is huge, and you need at least several days to see all of the highlights. The Historic District, the museums (Mexico City has the most museums in the world), the Pyramids, and the Basilica de Guadalupe are each a Must-See when visiting the vibrant Capital of Mexico. But also Coyoacan and Xochimilco are both not to be missed either," says Astrid, who has personally guided over 100 tours to Mexico City.
"It's impossible to show everything in a few days, but somehow we always manage to give a very good impression of Mexico City. People always come back pleasantly surprised and, just like Puerto Vallarta, they always want to go back for another visit," she adds.
Guadalajara, the second city on this particular Tripadvisor Top 10 list, is receiving more and more tourism as well. "We now offer a 3-day tour to Guadalajara every weekend," says Astrid. "Just a few years ago, we only offered this tour once a month, so that says it all. Guadalajara has lots to offer as well. "The historic district, Tlaquepaque, and Tonala are Must-Sees, but the modern area of Zapopan and Lake Chapala also make nice weekend escapes - especially for Puerto Vallarta residents and visitors."
