About Mexico

Mexico is a country full of energy and beauty, thriving with unique culture and history. As the country in Latin America with the highest amount of tourism, Mexico offers a variety of opportunities to explore everything from beautiful beaches to mountainous urban centers.

It is affordable and easy to reach.  Its cuisine is unique and often a combination of ancient and Spanish colonial dishes.  It’s even the home of the creation of chocolate!  It is a country with vivid cultural experiences which blend the ancient with the modern and offers something for every traveler.

It is a traveler's paradise, crammed with a multitude of opposing identities, desert landscapes, snow-capped volcanoes, ancient ruins, large megacities, and time-warped colonial towns.  This country’s profusion of people and landscapes reflects the country's extraordinary history, part Amerindian, part Spanish.

One look at this country is enough to remind visitors that there is nothing new about the so called New World. This mix of modern and traditional is the key to Mexico's immense popularity as a travel destination, whether your passion is tamales, ascending Mayan temples or exploring fascinating traditions such as tequila.

Mexico set a record last year for tourism, with more than 22 million international visitors. Tourist destinations in Mexico tend to be as safe or safer than many tourists’ home cities.
