dedication make each visit to Mexico unique and unforgettable.

variety of pre-Hispanic, viceregal, colonial and contemporary buildings that
jealously guard a piece of history of this beautiful country.
Its cuisine is one of
the richest, most varied and sophisticated in the world, while its musical
scale ranges from the subtle simplicity of the sound plucked from the shell of
a marine snail, to the most imaginative and sweet chords of a guitar. With an
area of 2 million square kilometers, it constitutes an inexhaustible sample
of sun, beaches, culture, nature, magic, textures, adventures, fun and luxury.
beaches, chili-spiced cuisine, steamy jungles, teeming cities, fiesta
fireworks, Frida’s angst: Mexico conjures up diverse, vivid dreams. And the
reality lives up to them.
At the heart of your Mexican experience will be the Mexican people. A
super-diverse crew, from Mexico City hipsters to the shy indigenous villagers
of Chiapas, they’re renowned for their love of color and frequent fiestas, but
they're also philosophical folk, to whom timetables are less important than
simpatía (empathy). You'll rarely find Mexicans less than courteous. They’re more
often positively charming and know how to please guests. They might despair of
ever being well governed, but they're fiercely proud of Mexico, their
one-of-a-kind homeland with all its variety, tight-knit family networks,
beautiful-ugly cities, deep-rooted traditions, and agave-based liquors.
pre-Hispanic civilizations built some of the world’s great archaeological
monuments, including Teotihuacán’s towering pyramids and the exquisite Maya
temples of Palenque. The Spanish colonial era left beautiful towns full of
tree-shaded plazas and richly sculpted stone churches and mansions, while
modern Mexico has seen a surge of great art from the likes of Diego Rivera and
Frida Kahlo. Top-class museums and galleries document the country's fascinating
history and its endless creative verve. Popular culture is just as vibrant,
from the underground dance clubs and street art of Mexico City to the wonderful
handicrafts of the indigenous population.
Mexico's gastronomic repertoire is as diverse as the country's people
and topography. Dining out is an endless adventure, whether you're sampling
regional dishes, such as Yucatán's cochinita pibil (slow-cooked pork) or a vast
array of moles (complex sauces, their recipes jealously guarded) in Oaxaca and
Puebla, or trying the complex, artsy concoctions of world-class chefs in Mexico
City. Some of Mexico's best eating is had at simple seafront palapa
(thatched-roof shack) restaurants, serving achingly fresh fish and seafood, and
the humble taquerías, ubiquitous all over Mexico, where tortillas are stuffed
with a variety of fillings and slathered with homemade salsas.
Country of mysticism
and folklore, of hospitable people who offer brotherhood to those who visit
them from distant lands. Its streets tell stories: walking them, flooding the
senses with their colors, aromas and flavors ... Drink it, eat it, breathe it
... Enter and visit the innumerable number of museums that faithfully guard its
history. Admire the creations of artisan hands that boast the inestimable
heritage of atavistic traditions. Immerse yourself fully in the idiosyncratic
heritage and understand first-hand why great people had an idyll until the end
of their days with this, which they considered, their second homeland. A Luis
Buñuel who, in the warmth of the embrace of the earth, had a prolific artistic
display and consolidating his romance with the homeland became a Mexican
national. Or Trotsky who, after exile, found not only refuge in a country that
welcomed him with cordiality, but also a home and invaluable friendships,
children of the land like Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Revolutionary minds,
artists of international stature who, through their artistic eye, captured the
love for the mother, for this great nation. The same works that today, along
with those of many other prodigal artists, remain as silent witnesses of love,
suffering, courage, courage and integrity of a people that continues to extend
its arms to anyone who seeks shelter in Mexico.

With steaming jungles, snow-capped volcanoes, cactus-strewn deserts,
and 10,000km of coast strung with sandy beaches and wildlife-rich lagoons,
Mexico is an endless adventure for the senses and a place where life is lived
largely in the open air. Harness the pounding waves of the Pacific on a
surfboard, strap on a snorkel to explore the beauty beneath the surface of the
Caribbean Sea, and ride the whitewater of Mexico's rivers. Or stay on dry land
and hike Oaxaca's mountain cloud forests, scale the peaks of dormant volcanoes
or marvel at millions of migrating Monarch butterflies.
