Of course, you can’t forget the classics when it comes to Instagram pictures in Mexico.

The country has amazing food, so tacos are a must. And no matter how short your trip to Mexico is, you’re sure to see some stray dogs as well. Maybe, if you’re lucky, you’ll get to meet some puppies too (or, stay in a hostel where the owners have a brand new one. So cute!)

I was able to spend ten weeks in Mexico so I got to see a lot of the most famous parts of the country as well as a peek at her hidden beauty. From volcanos to beaches, ruins to colonial towns, and everything in between, there are so many photogenic spots to Instagram in Mexico!

This list will give you a head start, but I know you’ll discover even more amazing places along the way.
