Reasons to go:  Mexico is like several countries inside one. Hospitality is their second name and the culture is so vivid and present (you can really call it a present) you can touch it, see it, live it. The amazing landscapes make you feel you are inside your most splendid and incredible dream. Mexico will expand your horizons in a way that will make it hard to leave.
