Mexico is one of the prettiest places on earth. Its immense beauty is expressed through a unique culture and landscapes. The country has different climates and each city and location have their own personality and radiance. The country boasts 67 national parks and 41 biosphere reserves. Among Mexico’s deserts, rivers and mountains, you’ll find more than 5,000 miles of coastline and one of the world’s longest underwater cave systems. From the many ancient archaeological sites, to the Riviera Maya region, located on the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, with the very best of high-end luxury resorts and one of the world’s top destinations for scuba diving and snorkeling. The colonial town of San Miguel de Allende, with a vibrant multi-cultural artistic community, amazes visitors with its explosion of baroque and neoclassic architecture surrounding its gothic cathedral, which made the city a UNESCO´s World Heritage site. Up to the Baja California peninsula, home to beautiful and diverse landscapes and endless beaches. Surrounded by a warm Mediterranean climate its Wine Route takes visitors close to small family-owned wineries and large-scale producers and exporters.

Mexico is so much in the heart of the global communitiy that the city of Rome last October dedicated a short fest to the Mexican culture. Entitled ¡Que Viva Mexico! the event brought to the city the unique mexican atmosphere with its joyful colours, distinct flavors and spicy and tasty foods.

When you think art, do you think Mexico? If not, you really should. This vast country has been the birth or workplace of hundreds of great artists, from sculptors and tattooists to the many muralists that have decorated government buildings and public spaces up and down the country and abroad.

Mexico is a fantastic country, we pretty much get everything from ancient and traditional towns filled with history, extraordinary natural reserves and destinations, beautiful beaches and all the way to cosmopolitan cities like Mexico City is. All of this without mentioning the vast and delicious cuisine this county has to offer. Mexican culture in general is very joyful and full of traditions.
