Mexico at a glance

International dialing code
Good to know
It's difficult to find a spot where to start upon describing the intesnity and diversity that is Mexico. This is a country of 129 million people, tens of states, varying ocean coasts, vast land mass, and thousands of years of varying rules (from Maya to Aztec to Spanish). Cultural and societal masterminds like Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Octavio Paz all saw Mexico as home. When in Mexico, it's important to traverse not only the beautiful islands and busy city centres, but also to explore historical monuments like the Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral or the National Palace. Mexico holds some of the world's most reknowned resorts. Playa del Carmen, Cabo, and Ixtapa are perfect places to venture out to, beyond cultural landmarks, to get in touch with Mexico's offerings.
