The most common tourist cities in Mexico are Cancún, Puerto Vallarta, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Cozumel, Acapulco, Mazatlán, Mexico City and Cabo San Lucas. Mexico has a wide variety of geographic features including mountain ranges, deserts, plateaus and coastal plains, white sandy beaches, and colorful coral reef systems. The climate varies drastically across each geographic region of Mexico. The northern area of the Baja Peninsula has a Mediterranean climate. The climate on the opposite side of the peninsula, facing the Sea of Cortez, has an arid climate. The average annual temperature is 75 °F. The rainy season is during the months of May through December. While the La Paz and Cabo areas, further south, have a tropical desert climate. Mexico is an oil producing country but the production has decreased rapidly over the years due to the lack of funds to buy the necessary equipment needed to break through the rock and to refine the oil, yet it is still the 6th largest producer of oil in the world. It is also one of the largest silver producers in the world. It will continue to rise as a leading economy. A big part of the economy is tourism. Mexico is one of the top visited places in the world.  

Attractions

Scuba diving, Mayan Riveriera, depths can range from 10 - 30 meters, depending on the location. There are many underground rivers, reefs, Cenote, and caves to explore. The most popular snorkel destination in Mexico is the Great Maya Reef, also called the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. The reef stretches more than 600 miles along the Yucatán Peninsula towards Belize. The Great Maya Reef is the largest coral reef in the Northern Hemisphere and the second largest in the world after the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia. The waters are crystal clear and provide easy viewing of all the excitement teaming under the surface.

Historical Sites

Chichen Itza is one of the best known historical sites in Mexico. It is located in the Yucatan Maya archaeological site and was recently named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. It covers an area of 2.5 square meters and contains two distinct architectural zones. The southern zone was built in the 7th century whereas the Central Zone was built in the 10th century. The most impressive structures are located in the Central Zone. The most famous attraction of Chichen Itza is the temple-pyramid of El Castillo. The temple is designed with special astronomical significance. Each of the four faces of the pyramid has a steep set of 91 narrow stairs. When you combine the number of stairs with the shared step at the top the total is 365, the number of days in a year. Cenote is a sinkhole commonly caused by collapsed limestone in the area. They often are the beginning of a cave system. The most common ones in Mexico lie in the Yucatán Maya. Cenote were used by the Mayans for sacrifices.

Cuisine

The north and south of Mexico have their own unique specialties when it comes to food. These difference are historical and are based in what was available to eat in the past. In the north, the people where traditionally hunters and gathers. Much of their dishes involve the main ingredient being meat. The meat most commonly used is beef, goat, and sheep. Due to the desert climate of the north, much of the food techniques are dependent on preservation techniques including dried foods. The food of the Yucatán Peninsula is different from the rest of the country. The roots are based in Mayan food traditions with strong influences from the Caribbean. One of the prominent ingredients in Yucatán cooking is tropical fruit. Some examples include: plums, bitter oranges, tamarind and mamey.
