Why visit Mexico for your next holiday?    

Mexico ranks as one of the top-most preferred holiday destinations because of its ultra-popular beach destinations, warm and sunny weather, and scenery to remember. The area boasts a number of fun activities like scuba diving in the largest underwater museum, snorkeling, stingray swims, dolphin swims, etc. 

The beautiful tip of the Yucatán peninsula is home to over 5 million tourists every year, yet it never feels crowded with so much nature to soak in. One other thing that makes it even popular with Belgians is that you don’t need to apply for a visa to visit Mexico. All you need is a Mexico Tourist Card which can be applied for online. No need to go anywhere. Win-win!
