A Rainbow of Colors
Mexico Vacations have been with me for eternity. Since I
arrived in Mexico at age 15, many years ago for a short visit and later settled
for a year and met the love of my life, we have been going back to Mexico several
times a year for many, many years.
To write about Mexico you need so much space that I am going
to divide it by regions.
But Mexico is not just beaches. Mexico is big cities,
colorful small towns, volcanoes, forests and health resorts, all accompanied by
the music of Mariachis and the Mexican Food loved by everybody in the Planet.
Enjoy a typical Mariachi Band all over Mexico
Mexico is an amazing country
The landscapes are outstanding; Mexico has beaches on both
ocean and attracts tourists by the millions, not only from the neighbors on the
north, USA and Canada, but from the whole world. You may find a direct flight
to Mexico City, Acapulco or Cancun from practically every important city in
Europe and South America, and even from Asia.
