Mexico has incredible places, traditions, and gastronomy that deserve to be seen, experienced and savored; which is why the Discovery Quest Tourism National Guide, in collaboration with Visit Mexico, has created a list of the 100 must-see spots in Mexico. The goal is to provide tourists and visitors with a list of the best experiences in Mexico and also to preserve the riches of Mexican heritage as part of the experience.

“A must-see is not only a recommendation, but a reminder to preserve the best of Mexico, (…) which has thousands of attractions and tourist destinations for unforgettable experiences (…) For the love of Mexico and to spread it to the millions of people who visit it every year, we launched the special #100 Imperdibles de Mexico in which we showcase the best sites to experience through our senses.” (www.100imperdiblesmx.com)
