Mexico is equally diverse in many cultures and unique landscapes – with sunshine, blue seas teeming with fish and coral, crystal white beaches, lofty mountains and volcanoes. The jungles are full of exotic wildlife, collectible folk art and the breathtaking remains of ancient cultures. This is truly a destination with everything.
Nestled in a highland valley, sits Mexico City, the capital of the Republic of Mexico. Experience Mexico’s unique blend of cultures and set in some of the world’s stunning landscapes – you can spend time trekking amongst the snow-capped volcanoes, and in a short time arrive at a bustling beach resort with ancient ruins nearby. This is a country for the person looking for a destination with everything – beaches, ancient Indian culture and music, a diverse history of the Indians and the Spanish, interesting food and spectacular ruins.
Spontaneous live music may start up anywhere, at any time. The music of the Mariachi’s is perhaps the most well known traditional Mexican music. It is common to find a band of Mariachi’s busking in popular tourist areas, especially the Mariachi Plaza in Mexico City where you can see and listen to a wide range of Mariachi’s playing, from young children to grandpas!
Families and friends are very important to the Mexicans, as with most Latinos. Any excuse for a fiesta (party) will result in a gathering of friends and family dancing until the wee hours of the morning. Music and an abundance of food are the ingredients for any fiesta!
