Known for its pristine beaches, spectacular scenery, rich cultural heritage, vibrant, mouthwatering dishes and its numerous attractions, it is no surprise that individuals from across the globe are falling in love with what Mexico has to offer. Its endless sunshine and warm weather, along with its deserts, jungles, mountains, volcanoes, and extensive wildlife, are drawing in more and more tourists by the day; making it an incredibly popular tourist destination.
Because of its sizeable Muslim community – consisting of immigrants as well as reverts - the North American country is also becoming quite well known amongst Muslim travelers. Muslims visiting Mexico will find that while Muslim-friendly facilities are not widely available, there are a few prayer facilities spread across the country, as well as a couple of Halal restaurants. These Muslim-friendly facilities are used by the local Muslim community, and increasingly by Muslim tourists.
