Mexico is an immensely diverse country full of different cultures, cuisines, landscapes, music, art and history. There are ruined cities of Aztec, Maya and other civilisations, tropical beaches, colonial cities and some amazing art and festivals including the famed “Day of the Dead” celebrated in many places across the country.
Mexico is the third largest country in Latin America and is the most populous Spanish-speaking country anywhere. It is easy to travel around some parts of the country by road, either private transfer or self drive, but due to the size of the country, you may need to have some internal flights. However, we feel that Mexico definitely deserves more than one visit to be able to experience the real country and see the benefits of its diversity.
