A country so lively that even The Day of the Dead is a hoot.
Mexico is a traveller's paradise, crammed with a multitude of opposing identities: desert landscapes, snow-capped volcanoes, ancient ruins, time-warped colonial towns, lonely beaches and a world-beating collection of flora and fauna.
This mix of modern and traditional, the clichéd and the surreal, is the key to Mexico's charm, whether your passion is throwing back margaritas or scrambling over Aztec ruins.
The imperialistic Mayan and Aztec peoples left an indelible stamp on Central America – a stamp that has imbued the modern countries with a rich cultural heritage. The ferocious Aztecs left the superlative step pyramids of Mexico, while the legacy of the Mayans includes some of the most enchanting and beautiful sites in the world.
