Destinations / Mexico
Subjects to to Mexico are brimful of excitement. Near neighbour of the USA on its northern fringes, the country borders Guatemala, Belize and the Caribbean to the south-east and the Gulf of Mexico to the east. The fifth largest country in the Americas, Mexico is powerful and an economic force to be reckoned with.
Mexico boasts an ancient civilisation that has attracted archaeologists and visitors globally. With amazing reminders today in the form of stunning sites such as Chitchen Itza and the Pyramid of the Moon, Teotihuacan, the country is littered with fabulous ancient monuments and areas of huge historical interest. Mayan, Zapotec and Toltec cultures have all left their mark on this remarkable country.
A cultural hot spot and absolutely alive with colour and music, Mexico will win your heart. The strains of acoustic guitar and crashing cymbals accompany the many Mariachi bands which add to the wonderful atmosphere in the local restaurants and hotels. Beautifully garbed in their jet black uniforms with silver and gold braid, the ubiquitous moustache and de rigueur sombrero, the Mariachi band members are a delightful addition to local colour in the holiday resorts today.
Happy, smiling people are everywhere in Mexico and you will love the warm welcome, the cheeky sense of humour and, of course, the delicious cuisine. Mexican holidays awaken all your senses, so open your mind and enjoy the holiday of a lifetime.
