Background info

Mexico is Latin America’s most visited tourist destination. With endless tropical beaches, vast jungle areas, metropolitan cities, a wonder of the world and countless of Maya temples that can be found all over the country this isn’t a surprise.

The food in Mexico is outstanding. It’s so good that it’s officially labelled as a World Cultural Heritage.

Mexico was a colony of Spain for over 300 years. Over that period, not only Spanish, but other Europeans joined the population of already differing native ethnic groups. And let’s not forget African slaves that were brought here by Europeans. You can definitely say that nowadays Mexico is a true melting pot.
