If you are on the lookout for entertainment when trotting the streets of Mexico, there’s a host of things to do. From the vivacious nightlife through traditional festivals and shows to a diversified shopping experience, Mexico is there to satisfy every whim of its numerous tourists.

Your vacation in Mexico will not be complete if you do not take advantage of the unique Mexican nightlife. Many of its tourist destinations offer one-of-a-kind bars and nightclubs that work until early dawn so you will be able to dance the night away while sipping mojitos.

The nightlife in Mexico is vibrant regardless of whether you are staying in the hurried metropolis of Mexico City, which offers a mind-boggling selection of nightclubs, or at one of the beach resorts, such as Puerta Vallarta, Acapulco, Riviera Nayarit or Cancún.

Cancún, Mexico’s most visited vacation destination, boasts one of the wildest and most outstanding nightlives worldwide. Its clubs are often crisscrossed by party animals from the legal drinking age in Mexico, 18, to people who are in their 50s or 60s. A handy option at many open bars is the bracelets, bought for a set price at the entrance, that allow you to drink all night. For more sophisticated guests, there are VIP sections which are reserved with the purchase of liquor bottles – they come at a much higher price, though.

If you want to immerse yourself into souvenirs and things to take back home, Mexico provides one of the richest options to go shopping. From shops offering exquisite local crafts through one of the most luxurious shopping malls, packed with the most popular international brands, to small artisans with delectable treats for the palate, there is something for everyone.

The Historic Center of Mexico City is the place to look for handicrafts made of silver, iron or wood. If you are more into high-class shopping, the Polanco Neighborhood, situated on Masaryk Avenue, provides a wide selection of items created by the most popular designers.

If you are a “silver digger”, Taxco in Guerrero should be on your radar. Probably there is not a single local person who is not in the business of manufacturing silver pieces. The delightful town’s abundant assortment ranges from necklaces and bracelets through pendants to rings and earrings. Those of you who would like to quench their thirst for handicrafts are advised to stop in Guanajuato where these superb products are interlaced into small handbags, beautiful blown glass items or amazing landscapes created using itched paper (papel picado).

Shopping in Mexico’s most prominent resorts, such as Los Cabos, Acapulco, Riviera Maya or Cancún, is facilitated by the gigantic malls which have on display fiery liquors, sporting goods, gorgeous jewelry, and fine examples of the latest trends in clothing.

Festivals in Mexico are the other thing that surprises with flamboyance and sumptuousness. In the month of February, Veracruz and Mazatlan attract visitors who march their boardwalks while marveling at the colorful carnivals all around. A lot of Mexico’s festivals are also associated with religious celebrations – for instance, Colima’s Todos Santos Fair – or cultural festivities – such as the Festival Internacional Cervantino in Guanajuato. If you do not want to find yourself sleeping with the pigeons, reserve a room in advance.

Vacationing in Mexico is accompanied by an abundant amount of choices for each and everyone’s entertainment – according to their age or the size of their wallet – so waste no more time and plan your next trip now.
