Mexico is the perfect choice for adventure–related vacations whether
it's hiking, mountain biking, scuba diving or surfing, Mexico offers
unspoiled natural surroundings for every experience. Mexico will
satisfy your spirit of adventure, from a train ride through the Copper
Canyon and rock climbing the peak of El Gigante, to discovering the
wonders of different World Heritage Sites such as the Sian Kaan
Biosphere Reserve.

More and more tourists are seeking active vacations and Mexico is
catering to those seeking nothing but adventure and excitement. For
example, the state of Chihuahua offers some of the greatest adventures
in the Copper Canyon. From mountain-biking paths that wind through the
forests around the town of Creel, to exploring secret caves along
indigenous families and sleeping in solar-powered eco-lodges,
Chihuahua will dazzle your senses.

Down in the country's Pacific Coast, surfers ride the waves in Puerto
Escondido, Oaxaca. The world-class breaks in Zicatela and Marineros
beaches lure surfers from around the world while in the same region,
hikers venture into the trails that meet the clouds in the mountains
and forests in Sierra Norte featuring beautiful crashing waterfalls.

Another option is Puerto Vallarta with its lagoons and wetlands, where
bird watching is a popular year-round activity, while right on the
bay, whales and dolphins frolic and play. Hikers, horseback riders and
mountain bikers can explore the tropical forest and at night on the
beaches, marine turtles lay their eggs during the summer months.

In the Yucatán, adventurous travelers will find ecotourism trips and
exotic tropical bird watching excursions. Few areas in the world have
such a diverse natural attributes such as leafy tropical jungle and
wetlands that encompass fantastic biological diversity and islands
covered in vegetation, surrounded by savannas, grottoes and fresh
water cenotes (sink holes) in the heart of the jungle.

Water sports are above par in Riviera Maya and Cozumel. The area
offers incomparable scuba diving along the second world largest coral
reef in the world, the Mesoamerican Reef, with more than 200 species
of tropical fish, it's no wonder the reef was Jacques Cousteau's
favorite spot.
