Influenced by the Aztec and Maya civilizations, as well as European colonisation, Mexico has a rich, colourful and vibrant culture, as well as varied and diverse customs and traditions. Festivals and fiestas are extremely important in Mexico.
Rich in biological diversity and associated traditional knowledge, Mexico is one of the most bio-diverse countries on the planet. Mexico hosts the second largest number of ecosystems anywhere.
Both the East and West coasts of Mexico serve up a beautiful day at the beach, stunning views, and exciting cultural activities, but there are slight differences worth considering.
The eastern coast of Mexico is brimming with hot spots mostly found in the Yucatan Peninsula and along the Quintana Roo coast of the Mayan Riviera. Mexico’s east coast has a reputation for soft white sand and warm, calm turquoise waters.
Mexico’s west coast is home to rougher, golden sand and not-as-brilliant-blue waters as the East, but you can still count on warm waters and a gorgeous, rugged landscape.
