It is the largest Spanish speaking country in the world, but with such close proximity to the United States, English is spoken throughout most of the major cities and towns.
Ancient civilizations left behind many magnificent architectural structures that are still standing, languages that are still spoken in rural districts, and a documented written history that extends hundreds of years before the arrival of the Europeans.
Tequila, corn, chillies and chocolate were introduced to the world by Mexico and it is the world's leading producer of silver. The cuisine of Mexico is world renowned and so is the art, music, and film.
For those that love the sand, there are tremendous beaches of Mexico that dot both the Pacific and Atlantic sides of the country. For those that prefer to spend their vacation in the water, the diving off the Mexican island of Cozumel has also ranked as one of the top 10 scuba diving sites in the Caribbean. Archeology & history lovers have plenty of ancient sites to visit and there is even a UNESCO World Heritage site called the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve that ranks as a favorite among those that love wetlands, tropical forests and mangroves.
For some, the mystery and romance of Mexico lures them in to make this a lifelong destination. It is so vast and so diverse, there never seems to be a lack of adventure or discovery when you return to this beautiful and historic land over and over again.
