52 Places to Go in 2016 – The New York Times Names Mexico City #1

New Year, new resolutions, and new travel plans with The New York Times!

The New York Times just released their list of top travel destinations in their “52 Places to Go in 2016”  feature and Mexico grabbed three of the spots! Positioning itself in the number one most recommended place to visit was Mexico City!

#1 Mexico City

The New York Times explains their top choice of Mexico City calling it a destination that radiates energy and a metropolis that has it all.  Highlighting chefs and artists such as Enrique Olvera and Carla Fernandez,  it boasts that Mexico City has “some of the world’s best cuisine, museums and forward-thinking design“. Their choice in Mexico is also contributed to it being far safer than it was a couple decades ago and that the weakened vaule of the Mexican peso against the US dollar allows travel budgets to extend much further than before.

Also making the list of top 52 travel spots, was Todos Santos at #23, and Isla Holbox at #32. Way to go, Mexico!

#23 Todos Santos

The New York Times writes, “Nearly 50 miles north of Cabo San Lucas, tranquil Todos Santos has long been a surfer’s retreat and a day-trip destination for Cabo travelers keen to visit art galleries.” It highlights Todos Santos’ effort to become more  green and environmentally friendly with new hiking and biking paths and a new “mindful living community”.

#32 Isla Holbox

Near virgin beaches and mangroves on this car-free island in the Yum Balam Biosphere Reserve just outside Cancun is what warranted Isla Holbox’s inclusion on The New York Time’s top 52 travel destinations list. They call it an “unpretentious hideaway for visitors to the Yucatán, a place to swim with gentle whale sharks, to kiteboard above its crystalline waters, and to enjoy some culture”. Seems the only thing they forgot to mention were the stunning sunsets!
