Mexico Travel Tips

Mexico is a wonderful place to visit for your holidays. There are spots that the honeymoon couple will love, sports activities for those adventurous at heart and lots of water sports and beaches for families and children. However to enjoy yourself the most while in Mexico, it proves to be better for you to use these Mexico travel tips.

Mexico is divided into different parts, of which Chiap is one of them. If you visit Chiap, it is important that you remember that some parts of Chiap has two times; old time and new time. these two times prove to be rather confusing as some people don't change their times. So some clocks may show one time, when it is actually another. In such situations, when you buy tickets, the ticket may show one time, while you had actually bought it thinking it to be another time. this proves to be a loss on your part.

The rivers in Mexico invite you for a swim during your visit to Mexico. However there may be fast running currents in the rivers at times. If you find yourself stuck in one, you have to remember to remain calm and use your energy to stay afloat. Don't try to swim for shore, unless you are really close to shore. Let the current take you down the river where you can grab onto a log or any other thing. If you panic, it is most likely that you will drown or at least run out of energy trying to fight the water current.

When in Mexico, you may get periodical travel alerts to Mexico. So keep listening to the news to keep yourself updated on such situations. Be careful when visiting nature in Mexico as even waterfalls here are rather dangerous as they can suck you up. So don't swim alone in a waterfall as even small waterfalls can drown you. if you have a friend around, it is possible to be pulled to safety. However if there is nobody around, grab a rock or something solid to pull yourself out of the current. When wandering into a jungle, never go without a compass or GPS with you.

There are many mountains that invite mountaineering. However unlike the flat lands of Mexico, it proves to be rather cold at night as you go higher in elevation. This is why it is better to take a blanket and jacket with you when climbing mountains. Even long bus rides from one destination to another in Mexico may get cold. So it is better to take along a blanket or sweatshirt when going on bus rides. There is no worry of going hungry while on bus rides as bus stations stores are open 24 hours where you can buy sandwiches and snacks.

If you are on a budget, it is better for you to visit the south of Mexico as the things in Mexico tend to get less expensive as you go south. Another travel tip is to take water along with you when visiting ruin sites as there is no water for you to buy here.
