What to see and to do in Mexico

from: Ann Corba




Mexico is a big and old country. Everyone can find something
interesting in this land. Ancient pyramids and temples, big
modern megapolises and tropical resorts - it's all here waiting
for you to come. The trip to Mexico can be started with visit to
its capital - Mexico City. It's the third-largest metropolis in
the world. Only Tokyo and New York City are bigger. This
expansive city of 20 million and over a mile high is built on
the ruins of Tenochtitlan, the ancient Aztec capital. Reminders
of past civilization pervade the city, particularly at the
Templo Mayor excavation and Anthropological Museum at
Chapultepec Park. This very Tenochtitlan was founded in 1325 by
Aztecs. Speaking about modern Mexico City, the district called
the Zona Rosa is famous for its shops. One of the must-sees in
Mexico are pyramids of Teotihuacan and Chichen Itza. Teotihuacan
is located 50 kilometers northeast of Mexico City. Teotihuacan
is not only a monumental city, but also a place where the mural
paintings allow the visitor to delve into a world of mythical
figures of Gods, jaguars, nocturnal beings and liquid skies. The
ruins of Chichen Itza lie about midway between Cancun and
Merida, so that the journey from each city takes around 2 or 3
hours via the new autopista. This place was a settlement of Maya
tribe. The tribe itself sank into oblivion, but its creature
still attracts millions of tourists and hundreds of
investigators seeking for their archeological glory. When you
feel tired of ancient ruins and dust roads you can direct your
steps to one of the Mexican resorts - Cancun, Puerto-Vallarta or
Acapulco. So, meet Cancun. Very popular resort among US citizens
situated on the Yucatan peninsula. The city of Cancun is only 35
years old. This fashionable resort was built on the place of the
former fisherman's village. Cancun is world famous for its
beaches, surrounding the whole city. Puerto Vallarta is nestled
between palm-covered mountains, a river and an azure sea. The
city is full of cobblestone streets and whitewashed houses. Like
Cancun, once it was a fishing village. One of the most exciting
resorts in the world, Acapulco is famous for its explosive
nightlife, golden beaches, unlimited watersports, world-class
hotels, restaurants and the breathtaking beauty of Acapulco Bay.
Acapulco is located on the Pacific coast of Mexico and unlike
Puerto Vallarta and Cancun it's a big city with 2-million
population. Mexico is enjoyable year-round, but October to May
is generally the most pleasant time to visit. The May-September
period can be hot and humid, particularly in the south, and
inland temperatures can approach freezing during
December-February.
