Welcome to this extraordinary country, a land of a thousand contrasts that will seduce you and conquer you like few other places in the world.
Mexico offers a variety of landscapes that will leave you breathless: from the most common and paradisiacal Caribbean beaches of the Yucatan, to the wild and fascinating jungle with its network of millenary underground rivers; from the vast deserts of the unexplored Baja California to the untouched mountains of Chiapas with its spectacular waterfalls; from the snow-capped volcanoes to the sparkling and modern city of Mexico.
Bathed by the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, Mexico is one of the countries with the highest biodiversity in the world. Jaguars, pumas, monkeys, toucans, dolphins, turtles, flamingos, sharks, whales and many other species are just a small part of the variety of fauna that you will encounter during a trip to Mexico.
But the beauty of Mexico does not lie only in its landscapes, its history is equally fascinating. Since ancient times, Mexico has been the cradle of important pre-Columbian civilizations including Olmecs, Toltecs, Aztecs and Maya. Archaeological sites still immersed in the jungle such as Palenque, Calakmul, Yaxchilan and Bonampak, ruins famous all over the world for their beauty and elegance such as Chichen Itza, Tulum and Uxmal and majestic sites such as Teotihuacan, are some testimonies that we can still explore today and that transmit us the greatness of these civilizations, their amazing knowledge of the sky, of the stars, of mathematics and of the natural resources that the earth, the "natural mother" offers us.
But what makes this country truly magical is undoubtedly its people. A population that, even after the Spanish colonization, has been able to adapt and evolve keeping its roots firmly in the past. In fact, Mexico is currently inhabited by numerous indigenous ethnic groups who preserve their traditions, customs and language.
Mexican people are brilliant, artistic, joyful and smiling people.
To fully breathe the Mexican atmosphere it will be enough to take a walk through the picturesque colonial streets of cities such as Oaxaca, Merida and San Cristobál de las Casas, or getting lost in the colorful local handicraft markets where typical productions such as textiles, the processing of stones and minerals, or the processing of agave for the production of tequila and mezcal in the characteristic haciendas, are carried out with pride.
Visiting Mexico means being conquered by an enveloping and luxuriant nature; it means being seduced by the art of the civilizations of the past and by the art of the present among local artisans and famous artists such as Diego Rivera and his famous wife Frida Kahlo; it means knowing a cheerful population with its “fiestas” full of dances, costumes, songs and colors; it means savoring a gastronomy still linked to ancient traditions, full of strong and authentic flavors ranging from the spicy habanero to the sweet corn, with tasty typical dishes such as tamales, tacos, ceviches, tlayudas, enchiladas, mole and much more.
Visit México means knowing a population and a country that will remain in your heart for the beauty, the simplicity, the joy and the sincere smiles that you will take home with you.
