Traveling to Mexico Soon?
From the ancient architecture of Mexico City to the golden beaches of Pacific Mexico, Mexico is a country full of mystery, intrigue, natural beauty, history, and culture that is exclusive only to its walls. There are many different cities in Mexico that are frequently visited by tourists, and each has something completely different to offer its visitors.
The unique region of Baja Mexico is one of the most interesting and diverse geographical areas of the world and is still very much a frontier. The peninsula is home to some of the earth's most beautiful deserts, along with semi-tropical and mountainous regions, pine forests, and hundreds of miles of untouched beaches and coastline.
In Central Mexico, tourists can visit Mexico City, the nation’s capital. There you can appreciate the fascinating architecture of the aging buildings in the city’s Historic Center, or you can visit the Basilica of Guadalupe and such popular neighborhoods as San Angel, Coyoacan and Xochimilco. The central region offers the tranquility of its numerous forests, waterfalls, lakes, rivers, springs and caverns, all of which provide ideal settings for rafting, rappelling, cave exploring, scuba diving, camping, rock climbing and nature observing.
The cities of Northern Mexico are a perfect blend of history, culture, and modernism. There’s Chihuahua City, home of Pancho Villa’s mansion. Then there’s Hermosillo with its interesting blend of ancient and modern architecture. Next is Bahía Kino, Northern Mexico’s largest coastal city. Here, tourists can engage in waterskiing, diving, fishing, swimming, and relaxing on and off the beautiful white-sand beaches. Finally, in Monterrey, you will find a well-organized city with a great deal of cultural attractions, both inside city limits and in the immediate surrounding area.
With so many different places to visit there’s bound to be something of interest for everyone in Mexico.
