Q.  Where to visit in Mexico?

A.  The list of Magic Towns is a good place to start
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pueblo_M%C3%A1gico

I have visited a few of these and they were all pretty amazing:
Valladolid
Isla Mujeres
Mazunte
Mitla (not sure its mágico)
Teotihuacán
Tulum
San Miguel de Allende

I would also recommend:
Pátzcuaro
Morelia
Yelapa
Mérida
Querétaro
Guanajuato (its mágico)
Mexico City

The Pueblo Mágico program is mostly about non-coastal towns (which I already loved before I heard of the program).
Some of the above places have beaches but its such a big draw it deserves a list of its own:
Mazatlán
Progresso
Puerto Vallarta
Riviera Maya
Oaxaca coast
Holbox (I haven't been there first hand)

Places that are just OK:
Barra de Navidad
Baja Peninsula
Veracruz
Cancun

Avoid:
Tijuana
Narco States
Acapulco (I read it has too much crime)

Places I want to visit:
Chiapas State
Guadalajara

Mexico is a big country.  Don't try to do too much in one visit.
