Mexico is a country between the U.S. and Central America that’s known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts and jungles. Ancient ruins such as Teotihuacán and the Mayan city of Chichén Itzá are scattered throughout the country, as are Spanish colonial-era towns. In capital Mexico City, upscale shops, renowned museums and gourmet restaurants cater to modern life.
Mexico is a diverse country bursting with life. Traveling to Mexico can be a fantastic experience, but it is important for visitors to be aware that the rules and customs are rather different than at home. The more a visitor understands this, the more enjoyable the visit to Mexico will be.
