Mexico is an amazing country, with many fun places to go.

Could you tell me why there is a comma between country and with?

I think that the comma is not needed when with many fun places to go modifies an amazing country.

What do you native English speakers think? Thank you so much as usual in advance.

The comma is needed. It sets off the explanatory phrase.

Although I would never call anything amazing unless I wanted to sound like a Simple English Wikipedia article, I would keep the comma. If you write "Mexico is a country with many fun places to go", the comma would be wrong, obviously. When you call it amazing, you do not mean that "amazing" modifies "country with many fun places to go". It is an amazing country, period (well, comma, actually), with many fun places to go.

Thank you so much.

And then, does not ‘with many fun places to go’ modify ‘an amazing country’ behind?

And what is the function of the comma there? Is it the same as the one in non-defining relative clauses for additional information?

What do you think?

Thank you so much again.
