Mexico is a hugely popular tourist destination thanks to its unique culture, beaches, and ancient history. Yet the country hides many destinations that visitors repeatedly overlook. The following are a few underrated destinations worth seeing:
- Ixtapan de la Sal: This colonial town is a popular weekend retreat for locals in Mexico City, but is frequently overlooked by foreign visitors. Individuals who do travel to the town are greeted with numerous relaxation options, including local healing traditions, thermal baths, and volcanic springs. Further, Ixtapan de la Sal features a great golf course and resort.
- Bacalar: Located along Quintana Roo, a freshwater lagoon, Bacalar features calm, turquoise water that resembles the Caribbean and is perfect for waterskiing, and other water activities. Meanwhile, the jungle surrounding the town has been preserved from mega-developments thanks to Bacalar’s ecological conservation efforts.
- Campeche: in the 17th century, the port city of Campeche was being overrun by pirates and, in an effort to protect itself, the city fortified over 1,000 of its existing structures. This ensured the city was preserved over several centuries. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, visitors can marvel at the city’s many fortified structures or enjoy its nearby white sand beaches.
