For all-inclusive vacations, Mexico is a country where it is interesting to get lost. Of course, on condition of knowledge of Spanish, because the local population almost does not speak foreign languages, and, believe me, there is always something to tell them about. Southern Mexicans, especially the Yucatan people, are true Mayan descendants, very welcoming, curious, and terribly chatty.

In Oaxaca, we met an oddball with the appearance of an Oxford professor who regularly came to the bus station to practice his English with visiting foreigners. However, for the latter, he was also very useful – he could tell many little things: from the rates of the luggage room to the time of departure of the last bus. A smiling passer-by from Merida suggested to us a cafe for morning lunch, at the table of which he neatly painted our entire map with arrows, dotted lines, and the names of especially noteworthy places (this is really worth keeping as a national souvenir!) The Gulf of Mexico) has undertaken good-naturedly and patiently to ply between small shops and shops and fill cars with provisions for our week-long seclusion on the coast.

WHAT THE CITY HOLDS?

There really is a lot to get lost in Mexico. If you bypass Chichen Itza and the large resort towns of the southern coast of Yucatan, then you can meet tourists from the bustling western world only at the airport, in hotels, and at souvenirs bazaars-ruins. It is pleasant to wander around Mexico City in the early to early morning when the city is quiet and deserted, and the massive walls of colonial buildings that grow at every intersection are drowning in a whitish haze. Gradually, the city begins to come to life right before your eyes: the fruit and vegetable traders are already scurrying around in their vans, the metal “pickups” of the shops are rising, the doors of shops and cafes are thrown open, among which you can find, for example, a numismatic shop with an excellent collection of banknotes of all times and peoples or a coffee shop, where young ladies in white aprons and with bows-hairpins serve coffee in the manner of the 1920s, pouring a thin stream of milk into the bitter coffee concentrate.

In Mexico City, in general, a lot reminds of the early 20th century: street organ-grinders, shoe shiners, guards with a white harness. At some point, you involuntarily have a persistent illusion that time has stopped here.

Small provincial Mexican towns like San Cristobal are notable for their leisurely pace. The sun rises and just as slowly fills the streets with brightly painted facades with languid midday heat. Shoe shiners receive their first customers, a children’s merry-go-round starts their music on the central square, Indian matrons in unchanged woolen skirts lay hand-woven tapestries, shirts and handmade toys on the ground, and their numerous kids are trying to earn extra money by offering passers-by all kinds of braided baubles. Well, holidays in such places are a separate, especially colorful story with dances, treats, and the atmosphere of a home living room in the central squares.

The ancient cities of the Aztecs and Mayans amaze with their majestic silence (if you do not take into account Chichen Itza, which is especially popular among American tourists ). It is wonderful to climb a hundred steps to the threshold of some temple of Rain or Heaven and calm down in contemplative numbness. However, here you can find a lot of funny curiosities: wonderfully snub-nosed or strikingly hooked noses in the portrait gallery of the rulers of Palenque, completely frivolous pompons on the traditional shoes of deified kings and calmly strolling in all conceivable planes – both along the streets and along the walls – imperturbable iguanas. For All-Inclusive Vacations, Mexicois all set to give a different adventure.
