1 Fun Things to Do in Mexico: The Ultimate List

Fun Things to Do in Mexico: The Ultimate List



#1. Tasting Mezcal (Oaxaca)

Though tequila is Mexico’s best-known liquor, Mezcal deserves just as much attention. It’s made from the same plant (the blue agave) but has a very different taste than tequila. And it goes well with anything! Oaxaca city in Mexico is known worldwide for its mezcal bars and distilleries.

Here you’ll be able to try a  tasty drink at many places in this big city. Places like Santo Coyote located on Avenida Independencia between J Gomez Sosa and Negrete streets. Or how about Mi Gustitos in Santa Maria Tonantzintla street in the Santiago Matatlán neighborhood. It is near La Soledad Church. They have great food. Both are in the historic center of the city within walking distance of each other.

Another great place to taste mezcal in Oaxaca is La Mezzetta. It is  located on Calle Murguia (near the corner of Juarez and Lerdo de Tejada streets). This bar has a wide selection, with over 100 different brands. This gives you the opportunity to choose your favorite one!

To reach the lovely beaches in Puerto Escondido, add another day to your time in Oaxaca City. So get ready for an evening full of fun. Try all kinds of mezcals and find out why mezcal deserves its category apart from tequila. It’s also worth noting that almost every type of mezcal contains some percentage of alcohol. So don’t empty them too quickly… unless you want to lose track very quickly!

#2. Taking part in a Mexican Cooking Class (Oaxaca)

If you’ve ever visited Mexico, you came back wanting to learn how to cook the local Mexican cuisine for yourself. Fortunately, there are several cooking schools in this country where anyone can take a class. Plus you will get to make your favorite cuisines from Mexico!

One good option is Casa Oaxaca, located on Donato Guerra Street by San Angel Inn Metro station. It is close to the Coyoacan neighborhood. This school has courses ranging from one-day or half-day workshops to weeklong classes. You will work with expert chefs who teach students how to prepare various Mexican delicacies. They provide information about ingredients used and the rich history behind these recipes. It’s an excellent way for individuals and groups to get together. You will have fun while learning a new skill.

Take a cooking class during your next trip to Mexico. You will learn how to make some of the best dishes in the country!

#3. Taking a dip at Hierve el Agua (Near Oaxaca)

Hierve el Agua is an archaeological site and natural beauty with pools of crystal clear water. They form overhanging rock formations. I think this would be a great place to take a tour of the waterfalls

But don’t worry: the water isn’t boiling! It’s just the result of mineral deposits in the rocks, making it seem like they’re bubbling up from beneath. But be careful not to get too close. There are no railings around these “boiling” waters, so you could easily fall off if you aren’t paying attention. Which I would never recommend.

You can find Hierve el Agua near Oaxaca City on highway 190 between Tulle and Mitla. It is approximately 50 km south of Oaxaca City or kilometers north of San Bart olo Coyotepec. Once you get there, it is a reasonably easy walk with incredible views of the valley below. So don’t forget your camera! If you’re in Oaxaca city and have some free time on your hands, add Hierve el Agua to your list of “must-see” attractions when traveling Mexico. You’ll be amazed at this natural wonder, unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.

#4. Enjoying the Best Mexican Cuisines on a Food Tour (Oaxaca)

The best way to taste the flavors of Mexico is by taking a food tour! These walking tours take you around different eateries and bars. This is where you’ll be able to try all kinds of traditional dishes. You can also find plenty of great street food tours in Mexico’s largest city if you don’t want to go on your own. One excellent option is the cooking class which lets you enjoy a culinary experience as you visit the market.

Another awesome place for a great experience is in Oaxaca city at La Merced market. It is located on Independencia street between Juarez and Flores Magon Street. It is close to Santo Domingo church. Or even better, Mercado 20 de Noviembre also called “El Tule”  is a market locally. This area has plenty of restaurants that offer tasty local cuisine. They are even in colonial architecture buildings, which makes it an attraction itself. But what people come here for are tasty foods like quesillo (typical string cheese), tlayudas (a kind of pizza), and chapulines (grasshoppers)

Also, near Plaza Hidalgo is a beautiful main colonial square located just one block from Templo Mayor archeological site. The free walking tour has an average duration of four hours, so it’s perfect for a half or full-day excursion.

#5. Witnessing the Day of the Dead Parade (Oaxaca)

Another highlight to add to your itinerary is the Day of the Dead parade when coming down south.

This celebration takes place annually in Mexico on November first and second. But it’s most famous for its “parade” that occurs during this time. Here you’ll find locals dressed as their ancestors who walk through town carrying skulls. Or other decorations inspired by traditional Mexican culture. Thus making for a truly unforgettable experience!

It’s also an opportunity to try some delicious street food while watching one of Mexico’s most unique traditions come alive before your eyes. So don’t miss out on witnessing the Day of the Dead parade if you’re planning a visit down south!

#6. Trekking in the Mountains of Sierra Norte (Monterrey)

If you’re into hiking or just looking for an exciting outdoor activity, trekking in the Sierra Norte Mountains is necessary. This area contains some of Mexico’s most spectacular landscapes with lush forests and jagged peaks.

From Monterrey International Airport, take highway 57 north until it becomes highway 40 after Cerralvo city. Continue this road through Hualahuises village before turning right onto another dirt road signposted towards “El Sabino.” Follow this path up to El Pico del Caballo mountain, where plenty of trails will lead you around the forested mountainsides. Ensure that you have a map of the area. Make sure you are familiar with the trails before setting out (for your safety).

Trekking in the Sierra Norte Mountains is an unforgettable experience. The views alone make it worth the journey, but you’ll also see some fascinating wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled for deer, wild boars, and even bears! Unfortunately, I thought we could see moose, but you will find that there are no moose around here!

Be sure to bring plenty of water, snacks, and proper hiking gear if you’re planning any serious trekking. And be prepared for many uphill walks.  This isn’t a walk in a theme park! But trust me, it’s all worth it when you arrive at the spectacular views atop El Pico del Caballo.

#7. Biking all over – (Mexico City)

Mexico City is one of the largest cities in the world, so it can feel overwhelming when exploring on foot. However, there are some great ways to see all this city has to offer without feeling too harried about finding your way around.

One option is renting a bike and taking off into different neighborhoods outside downtown Mexico City. Many of my favorite places to rent bikes: Coyoacan at Los Reyes rental shop located on Avenida Prolongacion Masaryk Street. It is neaby Colegio Militar Metro station. Or you can rent one from the La Condesa neighborhood. They have rentals available along Amsterdam avenue between Medellin and Parallel streets. This shop is close to Insurgentes Metro stations. Plus, I always love to ride my bike near Chapultepec Park. It is one of the largest city parks with well over 686 hectares. 

In addition, many shops can provide you with maps and routes for seeing various attractions throughout the city. It’s a good idea to see the streets of Mexico City, get some exercise, and have fun all at the same time!

#8. Cheering Lucha Libre  (Mexico City)

Lucha Libre is a Mexican style of wrestling, where the wrestlers dress up in costumes and battle it out for victory. It’s one of the most popular sports here! Suppose you want to learn more about Lucha libre and attend a match. In that case, your best bet is to visit Arena Mexico located on Dr. LavistaColonia Doctores. It is by Metro Cuauhtemoc (Linea B) station close to Centro Historico in North America. The arena has hosted many international wrestlers and local ones over its 80-year history. 

Hence, there are plenty of matches offered every week that will have you cheering along with other passionate fans! You can even buy souvenirs from vendors outside the stadium before entering. So whether Luchadors are your thing or not, it’s worth attending a match just for the unique experience!

#9. Visiting a Traditional Weaving Village (Oaxaca)

If you’re looking to get off the beaten path and explore some more of Mexico’s traditional culture, then be sure to visit a weaving village in Oaxaca. Here you’ll find locals who still practice traditional weaving cloth on looms using natural dyes, This makes for some truly beautiful fabrics. You can also purchase textiles directly from the villagers. So it’s a great opportunity to pick something unique and special as a souvenir.

Visitors will also find that many of these villages offer accommodations such as homestays with locals. So if you’re interested in learning more about how they live, this is an excellent way. So be sure to add visiting a weaving village to your favorite things to do in Mexico!

When you’re in Mexico City, one of the best things is to visit Chapultepec Castle, which can be found on Avenida Reforma.

This castle was originally built as a home for Viceroys and military personnel. But now it serves as a museum with different exhibits about Mexican history. Things from pre-Hispanic times to recent years’ developments at the end of the 20th century. Visitors may also take guided tours or even have tea inside this historic landmark!

Another place you should visit if you’re interested in art is the Museo Frida Kahlo, located in Mexico City. One of Mexico’s most well-known and flamboyant painters, Frida Kahlo was born and died in La Casa Azul (the Blue House), a historic area in Mexico City. You will also get to enjoy Diego Rivera Murals here!

This museum features many paintings by famous Mexican artist Frida Kahlo – who was known for exploring themes related to pain and sorrow while also experimenting with surrealism during her career.

A great place to enjoy nature and stunning landscapes is El Peñón de Guadalupe, located near Mexico City. This place is known for its lofty views of the valley below. Where visitors can also find a statue of the Virgin Mary at the very top. I think it is worth checking out if you’re religious or just want to take some pictures!

There are various activities that people participate in here. Things such as climbing up El Peñón de Guadalupe during sunrise. Which I think offers amazing panoramic views spanning vast landscapes. If you have extra time, check out the nearby towns and villages  Each of them has cobbled streets filled with colorful houses inspired by Mexican culture.

Mexico has many different places to visit and explore. One great example is the ancient city of Teotihuacan, located an hour north of downtown Mexico City near Tula.

So what makes Iglesia de San Juan Chamula, found in the main square, so different from other Christian places of worship? Well, for starters, visitors are allowed to smoke cigarettes inside and take photographs without flash.  This rule does not apply to photographing ceremonies. They also engage in unique rituals that involve Catholic saints, moonshine, outpourings of emotion, and animal sacrifices!

There are no pews. The walls and floor around the altar are filled with pine needles which absorb any dropped wax or oil from candles lit during services.
