With its buzzing metropolitan hubs and stunning natural beauty, Mexico is undoubtedly one of the most colorful and vibrant countries in the world. Unsurprisingly, there are a wealth of exciting Instagram accounts showcasing the country’s cultural, artistic, and culinary delights. Here are some of the Instagrammers you should definitely be following if you want to know more about this fascinating, diverse country.
For an Instagram account that showcases Mexico’s natural beauty, Gustavo Moguel should be your first port of call. The Youtuber and blogger has travelled throughout the country, recording videos and taking extraordinary drone photos of some of Mexico’s most incredible natural sights. Moguel’s Instagram is particularly focused on the Yucatán Peninsula, and the extraordinary beaches and cenotes (underwater sinkholes) that dot the region.
The Wixárika, or Huichol people, originate from the highlands of northwestern Mexico. The tribe is famed for its ritual use of the psychedelic plant peyote and for their colorful—and equally hallucinogenic—artwork. Aramara Huichol is a feed dedicated to the yarn paintings, necklaces, and other accessories handcrafted by Wixárika artisans. All of the items on show are also available to buy from Aramara’s Etsy shop.
Sofía Niño de Rivera
The Mexican comedian released her Netflix special Exposed in 2016 and became a household name almost overnight. She appeared on a Conan Mexico special the following year and released a second highly successful Netflix stand up special, Natural Selection, earlier this year. Niño de Rivera’s Instagram account features jokes, snaps of family and friends, and updates on her latest projects.
Pedro Kumamoto is a 28-year-old Mexican politician who became the first independent candidate to win a seat in the Congress of Jalisco. Many young people hope that Kumamoto and Wikipolítica—the movement which he forms a part of—will hold the key to creating a more inclusive and equal Mexican society. Kumamoto’s Instagram offers an insight into the life of a young activist and politician looking to take on Mexico’s problems.
