Mexico Travel: Backpacking Mexico in 2020 (Photos)

Mexico travel should be a priority for you if it isn’t already. The sights, sounds, flavors, and culture will have you begging for more time in this country. Here are some of my favorite places that I was fortunate enough to experience while venturing throughout the country

All of my shots featured in this post come from four different regions of the country

  • Mexico City
  • Puebla
  • Oaxaca &
  • Chiapas

For those interested in traveling throughout Mexico, here is a breakdown of where I’ve been lucky enough to roam.

Mexico City

Mexico Travel

Mexico City is one of the worlds largest cities. Apart of it’s mass size is it’s massive population. If you don’t care about huge cities and traffic, Mexico City has so much to offer:

  • Fine dining in 5 star restaurants 
  • World Class Street Food
  • Buzzing nightlife
  • Endless Museums
  • Traditional and Futuristic Architecture
  • Plethora of Parks and outdoor spaces
  • Cheap Accomodations and day to day spending
  • MARKETS

Mexico City is a definite destination for any major city lover, street food enthusiast, or someone looking for a complete change of pace. Don’t forget, the city sits at almost 7,400 feet and might leave you breathless upon arrival.

Puebla, Mexico

About 3 hours southeast of Mexico City, sits Puebla. Puebla is Mexicos fourth largest city and is one of the countries most significant. Puebla is also saturated with Churches, over 365 of them. One for every day of the year. 

Oaxaca, Mexico

Oaxaca is one of Mexico’s least economically developed regions. What it makes up for in economic matters, it over delivers in natural offerings.:
Puerto Escondido, or as surfers globally know it, one of the best waves of the world. Surfers flock here for the giant swell and cheap lifestyle.
Zipolite/Mazunte – These coastal cities just south of Puerto Escondido, provide visitors with cheap living and beautiful coastal scenery. The area is home to a devout yoga practice and nude beaches.

Chiapas, Mexico

Chiapas is Mexico’s furthest region south. The department is Economically impoverished but its people and scenery are lovely. The mainstay of Chiapas is:
San Cristobal de la Casas. This mountain town will take your breath away (literally) sitting around 7200 ft above sea level. The community is made up of local artists and an abundance of small shops, cafes, and restaurants.

Most of my pictures that come from Mexico are from Markets, Beaches, Museums, Buildings, & food. With the gastronomy of this country its hard to not capture any type of food that is put in front of you. As the pictures upload you shall see what colorful, unfamiliar, caliente, and what other adjective you want to fill in the blank with will come along.

Mexico Travel Concerns

If media portrayals of excessive violence and unsafe conditions are influencing your decision, let them go. But do be cautious of where you are going. Just like ANYWHERE, danger is around any corner but by staying out of certain regions where most tourists won’t go anyway, you are sure to have an excellent adventure.

Do you have a favorite part of Mexico I missed or have a memory from any region I mentioned? If so, don’t forget to drop a line and let others know where the best of the best is at
