Travel Mexico, a kaleidoscope of ancient cultures and an evolving nation. Modern technologies strikingly differ from long-standing temples built by the Mayan tribe, though that’s Mexico itself, contrasting diversity. You are welcome to visit famous volcanoes, interesting old ruins, remote rural places, industrially developed cities, wild jungles and gold beaches. And shopping, it’s rather ethnic and rather cheap, so you will be dazzled and your soul won’t be indifferent, for sure. Sightseeing and attractions in Mexico will keep you busy during your cultural program in Mexico – make sure you will pace yourself and will get enough rest (how do the spa resorts in Cancun sound now?)
Let’s set off from Mexico City, famous for its Templo Mayo, floating gardens and the Aztec built canals. The Plaza de la Constituci’n constructed for four centuries is the historic centre and the heart of the city. By the square you will see the Catedral Metropolitana, the King’s Chapel, the Great Temple, the National palace that is the seat of the President of Mexico. There is the Palace of Fine Arts near the Central Park. Mexico City is extremely rich in museums. They are the National Museum of Anthropology with the Calendar or Sun Stone of Aztec weighing 24 tons. One of the most famous architects of Mexico City is Diego Rivera. The Basilica of Nuestra Se’ora de Guadalupe, a well-known place of pilgrimage taking place annually on 12 December, is worth seeing; the Virgin Mary is reported to be noticed here.
Mexico City is not only a store of history, culture, but as well many educational establishments are located here, including one of the world’s oldest university, the University City now situating in a significant complex of architecture in Pedregal Square. In San Angel’s Plaza San Jacinto you can buy handmade goods and art pieces
Not far from the capital, Teotihuacn is situated, literally ‘City where the Gods are born’ dating back to some 2000 years ago. Here you can visit the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon and walk along the Great Way of the Dead. In Tula Basalt Atlantes and the Temple of the Morning Star are. In Tepotzotln late December you will watch Aztec dancing and playing. The Building of the Plumed Serpent can be seen in Xochicalco. While visiting Tepoztlan you will visit the place where the Aztec serpent god was born. Here you can do some climbing or enjoy nature mountain spots. In Toluca here is a volcano with the craters, the Sun and the Moon. Not far away there is a circular pyramid of the wind god. All the way along your travelling you can buy a lot of souvenirs, leather, silver and straw goods, jewellery, ceramics, etc. It’s worth visiting a fiesta with traditional dancing and processing, for example on 15 August in Tonantzintla. If you are interested in finding out how long you are to live, then go forward to the Hall of Columns and the Column of Life, in the state of Oaxaca. The 2000-year-old tree at Santa Maria del Tule and the boiling water near San Lorenzo Albarradas can be found here as well.
Central Mexico is famous for its architecture, sights and delicious local cuisine. You can take part in October Festival or witness rodeo or the well-known Mexican Hat Dance. In the north central part of Mexico the Occidental and Oriental Sierra Madre, the striking Copper Canyon Railway are situated. Chihuahua is well-known for its places of interest (the Government Palace, the City Hall), dog and horse-races.
Bullfights, belly dancing, festivals have become trademarks of Mexico, travel Mexico and experience all these.
