Mexico is well known as “Amigo Country”
for the hospitality of its people and, although many travelers
know its beautiful beaches, the real treasures of Mexico await
in its colonial cities, and magnificent natural attractions.
Mexico is a large country, but each of its distinct regions
have lots to make a complete holiday experience. The Colonial
Cities Route explores the history and culture of Mexico after
the conquest, from the sometimes daunting dimensions of Mexico
City, through the richness of colonial gems like Queretaro,
Toluca, Morelia, mysterious Patzcuaro and incomparable Guanajuato,
to the modern and bustling commercial centre that is Guadalajara.
Mexico’s natural wonders are only now staring to be known
internationally. The Copper Canyon in northern Mexico is larger
and greener than the famous Grand Canyon, and there is no better
way to see it than on board the Copper Canyon Express, one of
the world’s great train excursions. At the same time experience
the spectacular beauty of this region and the exotic culture
of the Tarahumara indigenous people.
For those who are interested in a different holiday, a Mayan
Magic tour is perfect. Explore the ancient sites of the Mayan
world in Yucatan, the easiest driving in Mexico where the highways
follow those avenues laid out by the Maya, flat and straight
fro point to point. But the area is also rich in the colours
and flavours of the blending of Maya and colonial culture, as
well as some of the best beaches in the Caribbean.
Still more Mexico awaits with treasures for the artist, the
adventurer, the gourmet and the romantic, lots of good reasons
to visit Mexico more than once.
