Although most people travel to Mexico to enjoy its remarkable beaches and atmospheric colonial cities, the country’s extensive natural habitats also present plenty of opportunities to enjoy the best that nature has to offer.
If you are in search of an active vacation —for example, hiking, rafting in white water rivers, mountain biking, caving, climbing, foot-trekking, or experiencing an abundance of water-based activities— Mexico can offer you the opportunity to enjoy some memorable experiences amidst a backdrop of awesome scenery and spectacular natural beauty.
Including elements of active leisure as part of a vacation plan in Mexico is more popular than ever as visitors seek to combine some physical activity and genuine cultural interaction instead of simply staying at a beach resort and taking short side-trips to places or attractions nearby.
Thus active leisure experiences can be added-on to your personalized itinerary —perhaps a few days, or a long weekend— or they can be the central focus of the entire excursion, providing a ideal way to stay fit and keep your body healthy, while enjoying fresh air, natural beauty, and a chance to experience extraordinary places that most tourists never see.
Your nature and adventure travel expeditions also help to support local communities by bringing trade to rural areas of the country which don’t traditionally benefit from the well-transited tourist hot-spots. They also enable you to experience authentic aspects of Mexico and gain a deeper appreciation for the country’s diverse cultures, including its indigenous heritage.
Our guides to Experiencing Nature and Adventure in Mexico highlight some principal outdoor attractions on offer in the country as well as the locations and regions which offer them, and when you’re ready to take the plunge, our travel partners can help you create an inspiring itinerary crafted to your individual needs.
