Mexico is a land of extremes- from rainforests to vast deserts, tropical beaches to snow-covered volcanoes. With a multitude of indigenous cultures, archaeological masterpieces, quaint villages and a rich history (and even pre-history), Mexico is a perfect destination for today’s traveller. The Maya aren’t the only indigenous people of Mexico- Olmecs, Zapotecs, Toltecs and Aztecs have all left their imprint on the modern face of this fascinating country with some 53 Indian language groups still existing throughout the country.
Mexico’s most fascinating treasures are its amazing archaeological sites scattered around the country. Located just 30 miles outside of Mexico City, Teotihuacan was once the most powerful city of the New World, built more than 2000 years ago! Palenque is found in southern Mexico, its temples rising mysteriously out of the jungles. Add grand colonial cities, colourful markets, fascinating customs such as the Day of the Dead, and traditional Mexican food – mix that with the friendly and hospitable Mexican people – and you have a world-class destination that caters for all tastes.
