Tequila, sombreros, mariachi, tortillas, beautiful nature… these are perhaps only few things that may come to your mind when someone says Mexico. Indeed, Mexico is famous for all this, but for much more as well!
Mexico is a country with so many different landscapes due to its large biodiversity. Among the most beautiful places in Mexico is definitely Copper Canyon, wonderful rivers, such as Rio Grande, Colorado River, beautiful water pools Hierve El Agua, and much much more.
Interestingly enough, Mexico is home to four different types of vegetation. You can find tropical vegetation which includes rain forests. You can enjoy pine-oak forests (in subtropical area), mesophytic forests (which means plants used to both dry and wet environment), as well as arid or xerophytic vegetation (which basically means deserts).
Mexico is a country where Mayan Civilizationhad definitely left its seal. They built stunning pyramids, most famous at Teotihuacan (“the Place of Gods”) – the Great Pyramid of Cholulawhich is the biggest pyramid in the world. Furthermore, there are the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon.
Another very famous pyramid is in Chichen Itza, called “Castillo”.
After Spain had invaded Mexico, the architecture changed since the Spaniards built squares and churches, such as the Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedralin Baroque style.
In 1902 the Postal Palacewas built, and in 1904 the National Theater of Mexicowas built.
Today there are many modern buildings, skyscrapers, and this is what makes Mexico unique and wondrous to visit.
Whatever you prefer, when it comes to architecture, you will not be disappointed. Mexico has a lot to offer.
Every country has its specific traditional meals, and Mexico is among those who have plenty. Many would say that the first thing they associate to Mexico is spicy food. Indeed, one of the essential ingredients in Mexican kitchen are chili peppers. Thus it is a must to try Molewhich is a rich sauce with many ingredients and one of them being chili peppers.
Another very important would be corn, so some very famous meals are Eloteand Enchiladas. Tacois also a great traditional Mexican meal made of corn or wheat tortilla.
It is said that Mexicans are very kind and guest-friendly people with a rich cultural heritage. We can also find that they are bold and strong people, but also very cheerful. Furthermore, Mexicans are mostly religious Christians, but, as already said, they have different cultures and backgrounds.
Native Mexicans have their origins from the Mayans, but there are also descendants of the Miztecs, Oaxaca, Hidalgo, Otomi and Nahua. There is also a group Mestizo that has developed from European incomers and native Mexicans. You can also find Afro-Mexicans, mostly coming from Africa or Caribbean countries.Share this tour
