Mexico is a beautifully diverse place, and has so much to offer to travelers. Whether you decide to visit the local beaches famous all around the world for their hospitality, and beauty, or some of the many historical cities from the time before Spanish colonization. There are also many archaeological sites rich in culture belonging to the Maya, Olmec, Tarascan, and Aztec civilizations. Beautiful national parks are plentiful and cover land ranging from desert to mountains to forests. Even if you just hang out in one of the modern cities, be assured, you will enjoy it.
Highlights in Mexico is the capital, of Mexico City. Also Monterrey, with its beautiful colonial buildings and Guadalajara.

For colonial cities one should visit Oaxaca, Morelia, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Queretaro, San Luis Potosi, Zacatecas, Aguascalientes, and Merida in the Yucatan peninsula, among others. For beaches, some of the best, most unspoiled are located on the Oaxaca coast, particularly Zipolite and Puerto Escondido. Not to be forgotten, and among the most popular are the beautiful Cancun, Cozumel, and Playa del Carmen located at the Riviera Maya. Also Mazatlan, Manzanillo, Ixtapa and Puerto Vallarta, are the place to be, for a fun and relaxing vacation. The peninsula of Yucatan offers an ideal mix of Mayan culture, great weather and some of the world's best snorkeling and diving in places such as Cozumel and Cancun located at the Riviera Maya. For a truly Mexican experience, the city of San Cristóbal de las Casas in Chiapas offers a view of the indigenous Mayan natives in a beautiful colonial city. Los Cabos in Baja California Sur has been a favorite get-away for Mexicans and Americans for years.

Archaeological sites in Mexico are vast and varied, but one should keep in mind Teotihuacan, Chichen Itza, Palenque, El Tajin, and Monte Alban among just a few.

For those looking for an active vacation, Mexico offers golf courses, scuba diving and lots of mountains to go hiking in, including cloud rainforest in Chiapas.

If you decide to visit northern Mexico, Chihuahua offers amazing sights. Visit Chihuahua City, Cuauhtemoc, Anahuac, and Delicias for culturally enriching experiences. The Copper Canyon, the Basaseachic waterfall, the Arareco lake are all great places to rest while in the mountains. Most importantly, remember to enjoy your vacations, and take proper precautions.

__________History
Edit This

Highly advanced cultures including those of the Olmecs Mayas Toltecs and Aztecs existed long before the Spanish conquest. Hernando Cortes conquered Mexico during the period 1519-21 and founded a Spanish colony that lasted nearly 300 years. Independence from Spain was proclaimed by Father Miguel Hidalgo on September 16 1810; this launched a war for independence. An 1821 treaty recognized Mexican independence from Spain and called for a constitutional monarchy. The planned monarchy failed; a republic was proclaimed in December 1822 and established in 1824.

Prominent figures in Mexico's war for independence were Father Jose Maria Morelos; Gen. Augustin de Iturbide who defeated the Spaniards and ruled as Mexican emperor from 1822-23; and Gen. Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana who went on to control Mexican politics from 1833 to 1855. Santa Ana was Mexico's leader during the conflict with Texas which declared itself independent from Mexico in 1836 and during Mexico's war with the United States (1846-48). The presidential terms of Benito Juarez (1858-71) were interrupted by the Hapsburg monarchy's rule of Mexico (1864-67). Archduke Maximilian of Austria whom Napoleon III of France established as Emperor of Mexico was deposed by Juarez and executed in 1867. General Porfirio Diaz was president during most of the period between 1877 and 1911.

Mexico's severe social and economic problems erupted in a revolution that lasted from 1910-20 and gave rise to the 1917 constitution. Prominent leaders in this period -- some of whom were rivals for power -- were Francisco I. Madero Venustiano Carranza Pancho Villa Alvaro Obregon Victoriano Huerta and Emiliano Zapata. The Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) formed in 1929 under a different name continues to be the most important political force in the nation. It emerged as a coalition of interests after the chaos of the revolution as a vehicle for keeping political competition in peaceful channels. For almost 70 years Mexico's national government has been controlled by the PRI which has won every presidential race and most gubernatorial races.

___________Economy
Edit This

Economy—overview: Mexico has a free market economy with a mixture of modern and outmoded industry and agriculture increasingly dominated by the private sector. The number of state-owned enterprises in Mexico has fallen from more than 1 000 in 1982 to fewer than 200 in 1998. The ZEDILLO administration is privatizing and expanding competition in sea ports railroads telecommunications electricity natural gas distribution and airports. The Mexican economy is in its third year of recovery from the recession of 1995 which was touched off by a financial crisis. After declining 6.2% in 1995 real GDP grew 5.1% in 1996 and 7.3% in 1997 and is expected to rise by 5% in 1998. A strong export sector helped to cushion the economy's decline in 1995 and led the recovery in 1996 and 1997. Private consumption spending in 1998 probably will rise by at least 4% on the strength of increased employment and rising real wages and the troubled banking sector is likely to increase lending for the first time in three years. Despite the spillover from the Asian crisis the medium-term outlook for Mexico remains positive with government and private sector economists projecting average annual growth of 4% to 5% through the year 2000. Mexico still needs to overcome many structural problems as it strives to modernize its economy and raise living standards. Income distribution is very unequal with the top 20% of income earners accounting for 55% of income. The inefficient agricultural sector employs 20% to 25% of the labor force but produces only 8% of GDP. Trade with the United States and Canada has nearly doubled since NAFTA was implemented in 1994. Mexico is pursuing additional trade agreements with most countries in Latin America and with the European Union to lessen its dependence on the United States which accounts for 80% of Mexico's total trade.

_________Health

Before setting off, you might want to check the illnesses described below that occur here. The information is from the CDC and should be pretty accurate, but if you really think you have something, go see a doctor. If you're not sure where to find good medical attention, check with a the nearest international hotel, they are usually in the know (though the facilities they refer to might charge you a little bit more)
Cholera

Cholera is an acute intestinal infection caused by toxigenic Vibrio cholerae O-group 1 or O-group 139. The infection is often mild and self-limited or subclinical. Patients with severe cases respond dramatically to simple fluid- and electrolyte-replacement therapy. Infection is acquired primarily by ingesting contaminated water or food; person-to-person transmission is rare.

Malaria
Malaria in humans is caused by one of five protozoan species of the genus Plasmodium: P. falciparum, P. vivax, P. ovale, or P. malariae. All species are transmitted by the bite of an infected female Anopheles mosquito. Occasionally, transmission occurs by blood transfusion or congenitally from mother to fetus. Although malaria can be a fatal disease, illness and death from malaria are largely preventable.

Rabies

A dangerous and possible deadly disease, can be contracted from a wild animal to a human w/ a single bite. Please when visiting do not touch animals that do not seem tamed.

Typhoid
A very stong course of anti-biotics will wipe it out. After getting typhoid I was very weak for at least 3 months after the anti-biotic course. There is a vaccine that is good for three years. If you consume a large dose of typhoid there is a good chance of getting it regardless of the vaccine.

600 km south east of Acapulco the seaside resort of Huatulco combines unspoiled nature, a laid-back lifestyle with a good tourist infrastructure.

Pristine beaches, jungle landscapes and luxury hotels is what Bahias de Huatulco brings the traveler. Slow-paced and still relatively undiscovered, the Bays of Huatulco enjoy the most modern infrastructure on Mexico's Pacific coast. The area is distinctly divided into three sections: Santa Cruz, Crucecita, and Tangolunda Bay.

The area is also known for its ecotourism. River rafting, rappelling, snorkeling, diving, boat cruises to virgin bays and hiking jungle trails are all on offer and can be booked through hotels or tourist shops. Shopping, nightlife, or even dining outside of hotels is still somewhat limeted, but that's of course part of the attraction.

The Land of Serpents and Ticks, as the Mayas called the city of Campeche, is an attractive town on the Gulf of Mexico. Lots of things remind the visitor of the town's bloody history: this was a favourite picknick spot for pirates. The Spanish built citadels and thick walls to protect the city. Many of them can be visited today and some have been made into small museums displaying Maya artifacts or items from the city’s colonial past.

Take some time to walk along the city walls. The old sections of the town were nicely renovated. Churches and plazas can be explored including the Cathedral Concepcion which was built between 1540 and 1704. The museum at San Miguel Fort has a good collection of pre-Colombian artifacts including 6 peerless jade funeral masks.

Also plan to visit the Maya ruins at Edzna about 25 mi/40 km southeast of town to see the impressive Temple of Five Stories and other structures.

On Highway 37 midway between Uruapan and Paracho is the small village of Capacuaro.

Located in the center of the Meseta Purepecha region of Michoacan, Capacuaro is known for their carved furniture. The men of the village are mostly carpenters creating chairs, tables, dressers, and many other pieces of hand-carved furniture in Mexican colonial style.

The village is home to a 16th century Parish Church with a facade that features cherubs, flowers, and shells carved in the stone.

Each year in late June the residents of Capacuaro celebrate a fiesta in honor of San Juan Bautista. The fiesta begins on the evening of the 23rd with The Dances of the Moors and a procession through the town and ends on the 25th with a serenade of song and an artisan market.

Founded in 1898, and located on the shores of the bay of the same name, Chetumal ("place of abundant red cedar", in Maya) is the capital of Quintana Roo. The city is attractive and its location on the main road south from Yucatan to Belize makes it a place many travelers end up spending some time in.

The closest thing to a real "sight" is the Museo de la Cultura Maya (Tues-Sun 9am-7pm; US$4) on Héroes, near the corner of Mahatma Gandhi. Although it has very few original artifacts, the numerous interactive displays and models provide a good insight into ancient Maya society, mathematics and cosmology.

Chetumal is a good place for making daytrips to beaches and Maya ruins in the area.

::::::::::Chichen Itza Travel Guide

Chichen Itza

Chichen Itza

Mike Copeland
Chichen Itza has one of the most spectacular Maya temples in Mexico, second in the world only to the one in Tikal in Guatemala . It is a very impressive sight and even more impressive if you dream away and think about all the rituals that were performed on the top of that temple by Maya priests.

The site is just a few short hours from Akumal. Chichen Itza is one of the largest ancient Mayan cities in the north-central Yucatan. The first large- scale archaeologial investigations began in 1924 and were conducted for 20 years by the Carnegie Institution. Chichen Itza means "opening of the wells of the Itza". Chichen Itza has many elaborate structures, the most impressive being "El Castillo", the Great Ball Court, Temple of the Warriors and The Caracol. Plan to spend the day at this site. Wear your hiking boots and go early in the morning, as it can get very hot and humid later in the day.

Climbing the Great Pyramid of Kulkulkan or El Castillo, is no longer allowed. Neither is climbing up the Temple of the Warriors. The route into the smaller pyramid inside the Great Pyramid is also closed.

Many visitors choose to visit the site as a day-trip from either Merida or Cancun, but this leaves little time to explore the ruins. Also, it means arriving at the hottest part of the day. The trick is to overnight at one of the hotels near the ruins, which means that you get the ruins almost to yourself in the morning!

___________Getting There
Edit This

Driving to Chichen Itza from Cancun

Driving between Cancun and Chichen Itza on the autopista (toll highway 180D), takes 2.5 to 3 hours at the speed limit. There are two toll booths, 180 pesos per car just outside of Cancun, and another 45 pesos just before Piste. Most of the journey is on a highway, which is two lanes in each direction, seperated by a wide strip of trees.

Make sure you have at least a half tank of gas before you leave Cancun, as it will take just under half a tank to get to the first gas station, near Valladolid. To fill up, you can either take the Valladolid exit, and go 3 km towards town, or go 1 km past the Valladolid exit and fill up at the gas station and rest stop "island", between the two sides of the highway.

If you take the autopista all the way to Piste, you arrive on the east side of town ( Chichen Itza is on the west side ). To get to the ruins, keep driving along the main street until you hit the T-juction. Turn left, and follow the road.

Star Gazing:

Shopping:

Avoid buying wood-carvings in the streets of Piste and Xcalacoop, most of them come from illigal tree cuttings; this activity is destroying the natural habitat of many endemic and endanger species of animals and deforresting the area. Best to buy many of the lovely hand embroided dresses and gifts, unique Maya ceramics and handmade hammocks.

Cenotes:

A short visit to a nearby cenote is highly recommended, especially for swiming and taking time to enjoy the natural geological formations of Yucatan's limestone bedrock filled with fresh blue water. Yokdzonot is about ten minutes drive from Chichen Itza on the free road to Merida, the cenote is part of an ecological community project developed by a small group of Maya female locals. A small entrance charge helps them upkeep the area, which includes a palapa snack bar and public bathrooms. Great place to scuba dive and swim.

________Chihuahua Travel Guide

The dog is probably more famous than the city, but for travelers Chihuahua is a good destination and a perfect starting point for a rail journey into the Sierra Tarahumara and Copper Canyon (las Barranca de Cobre). As capital of the state with the same name, Chihuahua, founded in the early eighteenth century, thrives as the center of a vast economic region based on mining, agriculture and livestock.

Tree lined boulevards, colonial mansions and thriving markets are the main attractions of the city. The Museo de la Revolucion is another must see; it's the authentic 50 room quinta where Pancho Villa lived during the Mexican Revolution.

On market days the city is even more lively than otherwise. Tall, blond and blue-eyed Mennonite farmers from the surrounding area are found in the city peddling their cheeses on the street corners in their classic cover-alls.

Copper Canyon is located in the North of Mexico. It is not one single Canyon but rather a series of more than 20 canyons running through the northern region of Mexico. The canyon covers over 20,000 square miles and is four times larger than the Grand Canyon in the U.S.

The scenery is incredible, and the best way to enjoy it is by taking the railroad line through the mountains. A stay of a few days will also give you the opportunity to see and learn something about the unassimilated Tarahumara Indians who live in the area.

________Getting There
Edit This
Although accessible by a dirt road through the mountains, the canyon is more comfortably visited by train.

For a scenic journey through the heart of Copper Canyon, board a train in Los Mochis at 7:00 a.m. central time. That way you can enjoy the view between El Fuerte and Creel during daylight hours.

Running in the opposite direction the train departs Chihuahua at approximately 6am. Two trains run, a first class which is exclusively tourist and second class where you get to mix with the locals. Even the second class is a comfortable airconditioned train and the onboard entertainment is so much better.

Cozumel is a small island just off the coast of Yucatan. It is an ideal place to go scuba diving. It has some of the best underwater scenery in the world.

According to the Mayan legend, Cozumel was the home of the godess Ixchel, devoted to love and fertility. Religious temples were dedicated with honor to the godess and in return she sent her favorite bird as a sign of gratitude and good fortune. For this reason, the Mayans named the island "The Land of the Swallows". Today, Cozumel is renowned for having the second largest reef in the world. It offers the most spectacular diving and snorkeling in México. With this in mind, hundreds of cruise ships sail to this island paradise for a fun filled day of sun, nature beauty and endless explorations thoughout this island.

Cozumel caters for tourists rather than travelers. There are many activities organized by the hotel complexes, that are best booked directly form the US / Europe.

Should you find yourself on one of those cruises you can visit Chankanaab National Marine Park via a short taxi ride from town(~$20). For you entrance fee ($15) you can snorkel from the beach with your own gear and relax in the sun. The park has a large number of people but it is much more fun than getting packed on a small boat or bus for a day of snorkeling. If you are on an extended dive vacation, you may want to spend a surface interval day at one of the many other cheaper beaches south of town or head over to the east side of the island. Chankanaab is definitely for the day tourist, with all the expensive amenities. Taxi drivers will charge you big time to get to the park, but you can negotiate a lower fare if you like to do that sort of thing.

_______Day Trips
Edit This
As well as offering world class diving and snorkeling, the beautiful island of Cozumel houses the Chankanaab National Marine Park, with a sea lion show, a botanical garden, reproductions of famous archaeological sites, a typical Mayan village, an underground river, a tropical lagoon teeming with brightly colored tropical fish, restaurants, bars and a dive shop.

Dolphin Encounters

Meet the dolphins of Chankanaab National Marine Park! You can choose between a simple encounter, a real swim, a spectacular advanced swim or, for certified divers, a dolphin dive.

***Note:Forced confinement of the Dolphins causes them extreme stress. Dolphins confined in this manor live only a quarter of their natural life spans, and most often die of stress related diseases which are uncommon to Dolphins who live freely in their natural habitat.

For $6-10 U.S., you can take a roughly 1 hr bus ride from Mexico City to Cuernavaca, the summer home of emporer Maximilian. The busses are the nicest I've ever seen, with "in-flight" movies (English with Spanish subtitles, as often as not), a stewardess, and snacks.

Also called "The City of Eternal Spring," Cuernavaca is spring-like almost year-round. In addition to the vacation homes of the Mexico city elite, it has many immersion schools for those who want to learn Spanish. You typically go to class roughly half the day, and board with a local family (room + board in 2003 = $17/day/person) with whom you can practice what you've learned. Our family went to institute Chac-mool and had a terrific time. (See their website, and others, for details)

Cuernavaca is also a relatively short trip to many archeological sites, and to places like Mexico City and Taxco (a silver mining town).

i
On the night of September 15, 1810, Miguel Hidalgo y Costillo, the 57-year-old parish priest of Dolores, and Ignacio Allende learned that their plans for insurrection against Spain had been discovered. They decided to act immediately and soon after dawn the next morning, September 16, Padre Hidalgo delivered his now famous Grito (Cry for Freedom) from the Parroquia of Dolores. This was the beginning of Mexico's struggle for freedom from Spanish rule which was to drag on until 1824 and take some 600,000 lives.

Dolores of that time was a poor, largely Indian village, but the ragged army of Hidalgo and Allende marched from here to San Miguel, then to Celaya and Salamanca until finally, having grown to a force of some 20,000 men, they had their first real confrontation with royalist troops in Guanajuato.

Hidalgo was captured after a final defeat in Guadalajara, then executed and beheaded on July 30, 1811. His head, along with those of Allende, Aldama and Jimenez, hung from one of the corners of the building in Guanajuato where that first battle had taken place. Today...As befits its place in the history of Mexico's fight for independence, visitors to the city are greeted at the outskirts by a colossal statue of the major heros of that fight. Today, Dolores Hidalgo is justly well known as a center for the design and fabrication of the popular Talavera ceramic pieces. Small factories and ceramic shops line the streets of Dolores Hidalgo. The ceramics industry of Dolores Hidalgo is yet another of the legacies left to his people by Padre Hidalgo, for it was he who started the tradition of making ceramics in this area. Other than its outstanding Talavera ceramics, there is one other thing for which Dolores Hidalgo is locally famous today - ice cream. Ice cream stands abound on all four corners of the main plaza and, in what seems to be a local tradition, each tries to outdo the other in their offerings of unusual flavors. Aside from the usual and more mundane flavors such as vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and pecan, how about something a bit less common, like avocado ice cream? No? Then try some corn ice cream. And if that doesn't appeal to you, how does fried pork skin ice cream strike you? Still no? Oh, maybe you're in the mood to imbibe at the same time as you eat your ice cream, then perhaps some tequila ice cream or, another popular fermented drink, pulque appeals to you. But the final word in unusual flavors, it would seem, must be shrimp ice cream. That's right, shrimp ice cream.

Ecatepec de Morelos is principally an industrial Zone with transnational enterprises like Bayer, kraft foods, chrysler,unilever, jumex, coca cola, pepsi, etc. but its the heart of all traditional culture places, for example its located at only 30 minutes of the pyramides of TEOTIHUACAN, very frecuented and visited for international tourism and recognized by the SUN and MOON pyramids, here you can find a lot of typical and delicious mexican food, like classical mexican TACOS (a kind of burritos but much more delicious, I'm serious) ELOTES, CARNITAS, MIXIOTES, what I could say about, mexican food in my opinion is the better in the world.

One tip, for bussiness visitors, Ecatepec de Morelos must be considerated a very important bussiness place, usually foreign people takes part in english education into schoolar sector by the greatest payments ranges and for the tourist its a place of connection with all marvelous antiques mexican cultures.

Finally, Ecatepec De Morelos is near (about 40 minutes) of Mexico's International airport and from there you can fly to others greatest sites like cancun, acapulco, tijuana, monterrey, puerto vallarte without scales in direct flY.

Ensenada

Ensenada

A.R

Ensenada, about 109 kilometers (68 miles) south of the US/Mexican border at Tijuana, is just far enough from the border to offer a more authentic Mexican experience than the eight "border towns" I have visited. People who come here just to drink, party and shop may not have a true international experience at all, but for the curious and adventurous traveler there is much of Mexico that may be experienced in Ensenada.

Four-lane toll highway Mex. 1-D is a quick convenient route south from Tijuana. There are three toll booths between the two cities. I am told that this stretch of highway is also patrolled by the Green Angels, who offer free towing and assistance to motorists who may break down, but motorists who run out of gas are required to pay for it.

With a population of near 250,000, Ensenada is the third largest city in Baja California, and one of its foremost summer resorts. The city spreads over scrub-covered hills that tumble down to the shores of Bahia de Todos Santos (Todos Santos Bay). The name "Ensenada" actually means "bay" in Spanish, and the city obviously derives much from the bay with it's large harbor. Cruise ships dock here, as well as freighters and boats of every other description. The city has a tourist face, but also a more authentic local side to be discovered. The surrounding area offers abundant opportunities for exploration of natural wonders as well as historic and cultural interests.

It's a shame that many Americans seem to think of Ensenada as only a party town - a place for young Americans to come and get drunk. For the informed visitor this charming city by the bay has so much more to to offer. We share just a few highlights from our own trip here. We will have to return to the area to explore more of the national parks, wine country, pueblos, missions, museums, hiking trails and much more that we did not have time to see on our most recent visit.

ANOCHECER PORTUARIO

ANONIMO

Guaymas is the most important port of the State of Sonora. In 1701 missionaries Eusebio Francisco Kino and Juan María de Salvatierra founded the Mission of San José de La Laguna few miles from where Guaymas now exists. In 1769 it was officially named San José de Guaymas and by 1859 it was declared a city.

You should visit the San Fernando church built in the XIX century, the Sacred Heart church, the Bank of Sonora with a neo-classic style, the Ayuntamiento (1899), San Fernando square with its kiosco and the symbol of the city: the fisherman statue and the Plaza of the three Presidents: Adolfo de la Huerta, Plutarco Elías Calles and Abelardo Rodríguez, all born in Guaymas.

Enjoy also a walk to beautiful beaches. Miramar is one of them at Bahía de Bacochibampo. San Carlos' beaches (Pilar and Algodones) are a must, as well as driving to the Outlook Mirador. While there, you can also take a quick hike up to "TetaKawi" (goat's tits) hill. During the first months of the year, whales coming south from cold waters come to the Sea of Cortez to mate and have their cachalotes. The coast line of Guaymas offers a unique opportunity for whale watchers and photographers.

Guaymas carnival is a tradition that is celebrated each February since 1900 and is one of the most important festivities of the city.

Guaymas is also home to the Only Commercial Pearl Farm in the American Continent. Located in Bacochibampo Bay and visited by thousands of tourists every year, the Farm offers Free Guided Tours to the Farm and a unique shopping opportunity: colorful Sea of Cortez Pearls.

An excellent four-lane highway, an international airport and a ferry service from Baja California peninsula makes for easy access to this city.

Catedral de Hermosillo

Alvaro Fernández Kaempffer

Hermosillo, the capital of the State of Sonora, is located 275 kilometers (170 miles) south of the border with the U.S. state of Arizona. The city was founded in 1700, alongside the Sonora River, as Santísima Trinidad del Pitic. In 1828 it was renamed in honor of General José Maria Gonzáles Hermosillo, who fought in the war of Independence against the Spaniards. In 1879 it was declared capital of the state. During the Mexican Revolution Hermosillo was for a brief time the effective capital of Mexico.

Today's Hermosillo is a city some 690,000 inhabitants (2004 census), distinguished by dynamic commercial activity and numerous educational institutions, the most important of which is the Universidad de Sonora. The combination of modern urbanization and architecture of the 1800s gives Hermosillo a special touch. Among the most important edifices are the Government Palace in Plaza Zaragoza, opposite the Asunción cathedral. It's also interesting to visit Carmen and Espiritu Santo churches, the University museum, the Casa de Cultura and the Popular Arts Museum. Also worth visiting are La Sauceda Park, the Ecological Center and the Sonora Museum located at the old city jail.

In terms of climate, summers are dry and hot -- 40 degrees centigrade (104 F.) is not unusual well into September -- tempered by annual monsoon rains in July and August. Winter temperatures are reminiscent of late northern spring, and days are typically sunny.

35 miles south of Hermosillo you will find La Pintada, an ex shelter of the Seri and Pima Indians, with more than a thousand rock paintings. An hour further south by car, just north of the important port of Guaymas, is the seaside destination of San Carlos. The Sonoran desert meets the sea in a final riot of peaks and cliffs, creating a unique and spectacular natural setting.

Also well known is the sea side resort of Bahía Kino, just 54 miles west of Hermosillo. During the first months of the year whales coming from cold waters come to the Sea of Cortez to mate and have their cachalotes. The coastline of Bahía Kino offers this unique opportunity to whale watchers and photographers.

Nuestra ciudad ha ido incrementando cada vez más su número de habitantes y extensión urbana a partir de los gobiernos que nacieron desde la aparición de Lázaro Cárdenas como precursor del plan sexenal en el cual nos movemos todavía y dentro de una maquinaria que, teniendo a la perfección democrática, se pluraliza a través de la formación de partidos políticos que, dentro de sus propias aspiraciones e ideologías, pretenden ejercer gobiernos que cubran a las grandes masas poblacionales y la respuesta a sus, cada día más enormes y graves demandas.

Irapuato penetra en esta Era a partir de 1921, año en que se inicia verdaderamente la reconstrucción de la nación como tal, partiendo de la aplicación aunque lenta aun, de la Reforma Agraria en la que el latifundio, ya prescrito, cede su lugar a la creación de la pequeña propiedad. Por esta circunstancia, el reparto de la tierra otorgará además del beneficio directo que para esa época supondrá esa división la única base sólida y real para iniciar el proceso de industrialización nacional.

Irapuato se distinguió no solo por la calidad de sus tierras, sino por la enorme cantidad de ranchos y haciendas.

Nuestra entidad se vio favorecida por el trabajo fecundo y creador de infinidad de agricultores que, Mujeres despatando fresa en una de las primeras empacadoras en la posición y trabajo de sus tierras, alentaron el 1948 nacimiento y crecimiento de este conglomerado humano que nace de esa misma tierra por ellos trabajada.

El comercio continua siendo el factor primario de la circulación del capital local. Esta particular circunstancia, en orden a las continuas crisis económicas por las que atraviesa desde años nuestra nación, ha provocado que el soporte comercial local, dentro del cual se mueven la mayoría de las personas y familias irapuatenses, se debilite gravemente deteriorado el poder adquisitivo, familiar y colectivo. Sin embargo, la planta creadora de empleos tan urgida en nuestra zona, se ha visto fortalecida por la notable pujanza que en los últimos años ha venido manifestando la industria del vestido.

La banca local, tan prestigiosa, preponderante e influyente en el Estado y la región, en algún tiempo constituidas en nuestra ciudad las sedes regionales de importantes se Gran Fábrica de Cigarros instituciones, ha visto rebasada y absorbida por otras ciudades Compañía Industrial del Centro, S. A. 1925 del estado quienes han sabido corresponder, atrayéndolas con el ejercicio de un mayor desarrollo Económico, a este sistema Bancario veleidoso que se fundamenta en la producción de capitales y su circulación.

El sistema de gobierno, modificado a partir del año de 1914 en que la autoridad máxima local pasó de ser nombrada como jefe Político a la Presidente Municipal, se ha venido conformando y moviéndose a través de dos vertientes fundamentales: una, la que le han otorgado los sistemas políticos actuantes en su determinación de gobernar aplicando sus propios ideales dentro de los lineamientos que nuestra Constitución señala; por ello conocemos que un partido político, el Revolucionario Institucional específicamente como tal, a raíz de haber sustituido a su antecesor, el Partido de la Revolución Mexicana en enero de 1947 ha detentado el poder municipal local a partir de las elecciones locales que para fin se llevaron a cabo y por las cuales se elevó como primera autoridad nacida en el seno de ese partido al señor Manuel González.

En el terreno eclesiástico Irapuato ha visto cambiar notablemente su fisonomía de gobierno religioso a una masa cada día más grande en número y mayormente necesitada de los servicios espirituales en consonancia con sus aspiraciones. De ser gobernada por una sola autoridad diocesana el párroco dentro de su única jurisdicción la parroquia que durante cientos de años a partir seguramente desde principios del siglo XVII tuvo como sede el edificio de la actual parroquia de Nuestra Años 50´s Señora de la Soledad conocida como Del Centro, en la primera mitad de este siglo fue segmentada de ella la segunda parroquia local, la de San Cayetano Confesor, construida como humilde capilla desde principios del siglo XVIII. Hasta el presente año de 1999 y dado el aumento poblacional urbano y en el campo, donde han crecido notablemente los asentamientos de grupos humanos, el municipio se ha dividido eclesiásticamente en 20 parroquias cuyas autoridades atienden una población en constante y acelerado aumento.

El periodismo en nuestra localidad brillaron muchos y con intensas luces, por el año de 1920 continuaba aportando nuevos periódicos y revistas de información general y, muchas de las veces de trinchera o de ataque en lo político o dictatorial.

Además de la palabra impresa, su oralidad se expresa por la universalidad de las estaciones e radio que, en su poder por la enorme facilidad que los medios modernos por la tecnología ofrece de penetración en los hogares y centro de trabajo, otorgan un mundo de información y entretención a su numeroso público. Esta circunstancia provocó el nacimiento y existencia de dos líneas conductuales e iniciales de información radiofónica, la primera a través de la estación XEBO, la segunda, la XEWE.

La telefonía vino a revolucionar al mundo y a Irapuato, la comunicación directa entre puntos distantes impulsó de tal manera el desarrollo comercial e industrial, que debemos considerarla como factor fundamental de crecimiento al acercar al público consumidor en forma instantánea. Irapuato recibió este beneficio por medio de la Compañía Telefónica Ericsson S. A., por los treintas. El medio más moderno de información y entretenimiento la televisión nos llegó a Irapuato el 10 de marzo de 1996, veía el primer canal loca, TELE CABLE DEL CENTRO S.A., a través de 4 personas: el señor Javier Ramírez como propietario, don Armando Esquivel como administrador, el ingeniero Julio Di Bella Roldán y el señor Ramón Díaz de León como iniciador.

Varios hoteles funcionaban, ya, en la ciudad, ofreciendo sus servicios a la larga lista de viajeros que, principalmente de negocios, pasaban por la ciudad o la hacían centro de sus actividades en la zona. Los principales eran Rioja, el Unión, el Hotel Mundial y el Colonial.

Tres funerarias existían en la ciudad; la primera fue la funeraria Quintero, enseguida se abrió la funeraria Zapiain y más tarde la Agencia de Inhumaciones Rodríguez atendida por sus propietarios don Vicente Rodríguez y su esposa, doña Teole.

Tres servicios de gasolina existían en el centro de la ciudad, cada una con una sola, pequeña y manual bomba; una cuarta más formal, se instaló en la salida para la ciudad de Silao, sobre la calle Guerrero y en su límite norte; ella era atendida por su propietario don Liborio Alcorta. Igualmente. La quinta se abrió en la calle de Álvaro Obregón. Más tarde el Lic. Ricardo Ramírez Centeno abrió otra. Así, Irapuato ha seguido marcando su propio camino; con alzas o caídas; algunas provocadas por sus acciones y en otras siendo forzoso pasivo actor de las tragedias en que se ha visto envuelta; midiendo sus posibles alcances en pos de utopías nunca reflexionadas; desatenta a los reclamos que la misma población la autora de los delitos hace un favor de un progreso siempre deseado pero nunca ordenado en función de sus muy amplias posibilidades, los irapuatenses van haciendo su propia ruta desde su remoto pasado. Irapuato sigue haciendo su vida y en lo ordinario de ella se va conformando, como lo expresa Michel de Certeau, en la ótica de su vida, en la cual, tratando de interpretar corremos el riesgo de provocar formas ilusorias de historicidad, de caer en el peligro de ser un extraño del interior pero sin el exterior, si no nos apoyamos en las contribuciones positivas de las ciencias humanas en el conocimiento de la cultura ordinaria.

Just north of Cancún, where the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico meet, is this small, beautiful island. The ferry from Puerto Juárez brings passengers, the slower one has more locals, the faster one, more tourists. The downtown area offers many shops and restaurants. Golf carts and mopeds rentals are available and recommended. Playa Norte (North Beach) is ideal for sunbathing and wading. The waters here are clear, calm, shallow and warm, great for snorkling. The sunset here is magnificent. The Parque Nacional El Garrafon is on the Punta Sur (South Point) of the island. The Mayan ruin here is named, Templo Maya Diosa Ixchel. There are iguanas everywhere. The waters here are rough and swimming is only recommended in designated areas. Although Isla Mujeres is a tourist destination in its own right, it is quite a contrast from Cancún. It has more local flavor than the major tourist areas.

Tortugranja is a small turtle farm located on the beach where turtles come to lay their eggs. It was created to prevent poaching of the turtle eggs, and to help repopulate the turtle population. It consists of a small "aquarium", a building which contains the smallest of the turtles, surrounded by circular concrete tubs of turtles in graduated sizes. There is also an area of sand fenced off, holding incubating turtle eggs. Inside, in size, it's closer to a small pet store than an aquarium. It's not really a "tourist attraction", in the sense that it’s quite small, more like more..

The twin resorts of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico 144 miles northwest of Acapulco along the coast known as La Costa Grande.

Ixtapa is a government-planned resort of high-rise hotels, designer shops, gourmet restaurants, golf courses, and popular nightclubs. Planned at the same time as Cancun, it never has reached the same popularity.

Zihuatanejo is a thriving community that has grown from a fishing village. It is composed of a natural bay surrounded by several beaches. Zihuatanejo has a more authentic Mexican flavor and a large selection of inexpensive restaurants.

The two towns, just four miles apart, make the perfect combination for enjoying the best of both worlds while on vacation.

A trip to Las Gatas beach for a day of snorkeling is a "must do" when in Zihuatanejo.

The trip starts at the municipal pier where water taxis run back and forth between the pier and Las Gatas from about 9 in the morning until 5 p.m. The cost is 30 pesos, or a litle under $3USD for a roundtrip ticket. The trip out to Las Gatas gives some beautiful views of the town and surrounding hills. Sometimes a cruise ship will be anchored in the bay and the water taxis pass very close, giving an interesting perspective of the ship.

La Paz is the capital city of Baja California Sur, the state that contains Cabo San Lucas. La Paz is a simpler, less touristy destination than Cabo, but has all the amenities. It is a place to relax and get away from the Hard Rock Cafe style of tourist center. The contrast between the harsh and stark desert surrounding the city and the teaming waters of the Gulf is striking.

La Paz can be reached by airlines from Los Angeles, Houston and Phoenix, or by ferry from Topolobampo and Maztlán on the Mexican mainland. You can also get there by flying to San Jose del Cabo and driving for 2 hours up the coast. The road is a little rough, but the scenery is a good insight to the desert that surrounds La Paz.

Situated in a bay off the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez), La Paz is intimately connected to the sea. Tourists will find world class fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving here. The area is filled with whales, whale sharks, sea lions, and other large oceanic creatures.

The Old part of the city begins at the waterfront and extends several blocks inland. Here you will find the hotels, shops, and restaurants that cater to tourists and locals alike. The cathedral, central offices, and small shops are typically Colonial Mexican.

PLAZA JUARES (MAGDALENA)

RUBEN R.
A prosperous small city of some 25,000 inhabitants situated 80 km. (50 miles) south of Nogales and the Arizona border, Magdalena de Kino is best known abroad as the resting place of the Italian missionary and explorer Padre Eusebio Kino. The priest from near Trento founded numerous missions in the Pimería Alta of what is now northern Sonora and Southern Arizona in the late 1600s and early 1700s, including the well preserved temple at San Ignacio, a few miles east of Magdalena. In more recent history, the city is known in Mexico as the home town of Luis Donaldo Colosio Murrieta, a highly respected civic leader and politician who was assassinated 23 March 1994 during a stop on his presidential campaign in Lomas Taurinas, a poor neighborhood of Tijuana.

Although most tourists rush by on national route 15, the town is worth a stop. Padre Kino's remains are displayed in a crypt built where they were found in 1966, in what is now the park-like Plaza Monumental, reconstructed at great expense after the discovery. Across the plaza is the graceful Temple of Santa María de Magdalena, where the image of San Francisco Javier is venerated. Numerous small shops dedicated mostly to religious mementos surround the plaza. This oasis of calm in the bustling city comes to life each year in late September and early October as thousands of Mexican pilgrims and members of the Tohono O'odham and Pascua Yaqui tribes near Tucson gather during the religious festival dedicated to San Francisco Javier, and again in May in the festival honoring Padre Kino. Not far from Plaza Monumental is the architecturally interesting Palacio Municipal, at one time the seasonal seat of Sonora state government as political leaders escaped the torrid summers of Hermosillo.

Visitors will find several comfortable motels in and around Magdalena, and a wide variety of restaurants. Among the latter, El Toro merits special mention as for its careful preparation of beef, Sonora's specialty. The little restaurant by the odd name of Chango'oS in the commercial plaza is especially good for lunch.

Las Hadas golf course is one of the best in the world. It's an 18 hole course and under strict maintenance. Some of the best instructors can be found here. The exuberant vegetation makes a perfect frame together with the Moorish Mediterranean architecture and the combination produces one of the best courses on a world level basis.

Private Club El Tamarindo counts with a professional 18-hole course 6 of them at sea front. Its greens are big, quick and wavy features that contribute to the extent of difficulty and make the game a little bit more interesting. Another special feature of this course is the thick vegetation that has to be crossed when moving from one hole to the other.

One of the many monarch butterflies at the sanctuary

Janelle M. Chang

Morelia is the capital city of Michoacán state. It has a arquitechtonic beautiness considered a Patrimony of Mankind. And it is the native place of Morelos, one of the main characters involved in México's independence from Spain in 1810.

Michoacán de Ocampo received this name due to Melchor Ocampo, a noticeable liberal defender who proposed several treats in favour of Liberalism in Mexico.

One of the most prominent feature of Michoacan is 'El Rosario - The Butterfly Sanctuary' where if you visit at the right time, you will see thousands of monarch butterflies that are migrating from up north. The sanctuary is at the top of a steel hill so you have choices between hiking or paying for a ride with one of the many locals who run trucks frequently up the trail. It's easiest to make some new friends and split the cost as it isn't terribly inexpensive for the short ride. Once at the sanctuary, prepare for a strenuous uphill hike to the top of the mountain. The hike is very scenic however as there are many butterflies amongst the trees.

Founded in the 16-th century and named after the Spanish Viceroy Count Monterrey, the city of Monterrey is the most important city in the north of Mexico and an industrial and economic powerhouse.

Monterrey is Mexico’s third largest city; it's not one of those laid back towns with colonial architecture you've seen in the movies. It's vibrant and full of life. The Gran Plaza of Monterrey is the center for the state government of Nuevo León. The Plaza’s modern buildings, gardens, and monuments are a reflection of the city that has fully embraced the spirit of modern industrialism.

Monterrey is surrounded by the Sierra Madre mountains. The city is set at an elevation of 1,800 feet above sea level. Monterrey is the main transport hub of the north and there are many routes into and out of Monterrey, including excellent highways, railroads, and Monterrey’s international airport which offers daily flights to and from many cities in Mexico and the United States.

The city is spread out, but remains relatively crowded. The city is wealthier than most other Mexican cities, and consequently, the prices here tend to be higher. Despite the minor disadvantages, Monterrey is a beautiful, modern city that has much to offer both in business and tourism.

MARCO
Edit This

The Museo de Arte Contemporaneo (MARCO) is Monterrey's trendiest, artsiest, and one of its most popular downtown museums. The collection is eclectic, and decidedly latin in focus, though special exhibits more often bring in works from noted European or North American modern artists. The center courtyard features an elaborate waterfall/water sculpture, the gift shop is excellent, and the cafe is outstanding.

Tijuana

Katherine Walton

Tijuana is located in the northwest of Mexico, at the north end of the Baja California Peninsula, and it is close to the USA border. San Diego is about 25 Km north of the border...the actual city at the border is called San Ysidro, which happens to be the south terminus of the San Diego Trolley. It is the largest city in the territory of Baja California Norte. Many people go up there from all parts of Mexico, many work at these border manufacturing factories called MAQUILADORAS.

From a tourist standpoint, most people cross the border and visit the area downtown at Calle Revolucion, about 6-10 blocks long... this area is full of shopping areas, bars, restaurants, etc... and then these tourist cross back to the US. It gets very busy at night... It is kind of neat just to venture many 2-3 blocks west (around 6th and revolucion or so)...and you get to see more of a local area. There are local stores, a bakery, a tortilleria, even a catholic church.

For those who want to venture a little further south, there is the city of Rosarito, some 35 Km south of Tijuana. It used to be a sleepy fishing town, but now it has gotten busier...this is where the ship for the movie Titanic was stationed. There is a nice beach, and some bars and hotels. Another 50 Km south of Rosarito is the city of Ensenada. Ensenada is larger than Rosario, but a lot smaller than Tijuana. Also on the coast. For people who are interested in wines, there is a small wine country east of Ensenada (inland). It is the Valle de Guadalupe. It is not Napa Valley, but it is a new growing industry in the area, and perhaps some tourists may want to check it out.

Tijuana has an airport, with flights to other cities in Mexico. Most of the tourists, however, visit crossing from California, USA. So, if you have time, it is an OK place to visit for a couple days or so.

For those tourists entering from the US, KEEP IN MIND, going to Tijuana from San Diego is INDEED leaving the USA, so once you leave, to return, you will need a NEW ENTRY to the USA with all the paperwork required. Make sure all your paperwork is in order BEFORE you walk into Mexico.

It can take an hour or more to get back into the USA and you should be prepared for long queues.

The Yucatan peninsula is packed with history. This was the heartland of the Mayan civilization and you will find many temples in Yucatan: ranging from the small but romantic temple of Tulum - it is almost on a white beach -to the most impressive Mayan temple of Mexico: "El Castillo" at Chichen Itza. Ancient Maya Temples can be visited also in Palenque, Uxmal and outside Mexico the most majestic tall temples are in Tikal, Guatemala.

Cancun is quite likely to be your place of arrival in Yucatan. It is a beach resort with little to offer but sun, sea, sand, good hotels and a convenient place to take the bus to somewhere else. Cozumel is one of the best places to go if you love scuba diving.

Merida, the capital city of the state of Yucatan, is located in the heart of Yucatan and the oldest city in the Americas, founded in 1542 by the Spaniards on top of a Mayan city called T'ho. Campeche with its old fortifications and "Pirates of the Caribbean" feel is also worth a visit.
________Practical Information
Edit This
The Yucatan Peninsula is home to the main cities of Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Merida, Progreso, Valladolid, Izamal, Campeche and so much more.

It consists of three states: Campeche in the West, Yucatan in the center and Quintana Roo to the East. Excellent roads and highways connect the major cities and even some of the smaller pueblos to each other. Cell phones and landline telephones are everywhere, as are internet cafes.

A great place to vacation and a great place to live!

_______Tours and Excursions

An old mill used to crush the agave for its juices.

David Crummey
The city of Tequila is located just an hour outside of Guadalajara and is the ancestral home of it's eponymous spirit. Located in the fertile foothills of a volcano, the city is surrounded by tens of thousands of acres of Blue Agave from which tequila is distilled.

Every bottle of tequila must be distilled in the area around Tequila, the state of Jalisco and a few other locations listed by the government of Mexico. For this reason, most Tequila distilleries are located here, including the original distilleries of Jose Cuervo, Sauza, Orendain, and other well known names. There is also the Tequila Museum that is open for a small fee.

Tequila is easily accessible by car, but if you think you won't be in the mood to drive back, various tours are available from Guadalajara. There is a train tour called the "Tequila Express" which includes tequila tasting, food and mariachi music from Guadalajara and back. Note that contrary to popoular belief, the "Tequila Express" does not call at Tequila, but Amatitán, which is Casa Herradura's base. If you want to see Tequila, visit Cuervo World or Sauza, which are in that town.

Local second class buses leave Guadalajara for Tequila every 15 minutes from the Old Bus Station (near Parque Agua Azul) and take about 90 minutes to get there.

Tulum Ruinas

Tulum Ruinas

www.dubstar.ch
The setting of Tulum is perfect. It is something out of a James Bond movie. The dramatic Mayan ruins of Tulum stand on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean sea.

Tulum was an important port and trading center for the Yucatan's east coast Maya. Within the walls of the city lies a series of platforms and buildings, including ruined palaces and elevated temples. The most impressive structure is "El Castillo". The temple of the Frescos is also interesting. It has murals that are similar to the designs of the Paris Codex, one of the few surviving Mayan books.

Go early to Tulum, no later than 9:00 a.m. to avoid the bus loads from Cancun. This area has heavy tourist traffic. Large market, bargaining is expected. The pueblo has Money exchanges at good rates.

GAS STATION HERE! FILL UP YOUR TANK BEFORE YOU HEAD NORTH!

There are a few things you should know about Tulum. There is Tulum, the ruins. Then there is Tulum, the pueblo. And finally, there is Tulum, the beach and the tiny tiny little town along the beach. The ruins of Tulum is what most people on tour buses visit. There are a lot of shops and restaurants there that cater to tourists, and a few nearby little hotels. The town of Tulum is south of the ruins along both sides of the highway that continues on south to Belize and points south. In the last year, this little town has begun to spruce itself up. You can now find lots of good restaurants, quite a bit of shopping, a bus station, grocery stores, hostels and hotels, real estate offices, banks and a police station there. The beach of Tulum can be found by taking a left (east) turn right before you go into town. Follow the signs to Boca Paila. The road goes toward the beach for about half a mile and dead ends at the shore. Turn left for the more "backpacker" style hostels and hotels (this is a gross generalization...) and turn right for everything else. The little tiny town along the beach is to the right. There you will find a few delicious restaurants, a few stores, lots of hotels, cabañas, palapas, etc. and of course, the beach!

The Pink Iguana

Most travellers to Tulum think Ruins.....Tulum is and should be famous for the Mayan Ruins located beachside. But there are many other things to do and see in the area which should not be missed!

There are water-based things to do, as well as plenty to do on dry land. On dry land, you are able to rent bikes and ride your way to the ruins of Tulum. As of 2007, they are currently 50 pesos (5 american dollars), and appx a 25 minute ride away. There are also shuttle buses that go there for appx 10 pesos. Perhaps you will find a cheaper deal. The local food is good. Horchata is not easily found on the mainstreet.


Tulum is surrounded by water, water in the Carribean, clear, blue and warm and water in the jungle, the hidden fresh water in the cenotes (say note ays). Both are inviting and both bring a very diverse experience to both snorkellers and divers. There is also a lagoon in the Sian Kaan Biosphere that provides great opportunities for kayaking and boating.

For snorkelers, the ocean provides access to the second largest barrier reef in the world. It is best to hire a boat or find a guided snorkel tour as the reef it far enough from the shore that swimming could become too much of an adventure for some. If you want to view some gifts of coral from shore, this is possible with snorkel equipment.

For divers, there are guided diving tours offered within the area. The attraction is the cenotes, fresh water pools that enable an open water diver the opportunity to enter into caverns that offer amazing light diversity, limestone formations and some fresh water fish. There is no where else in this world that this type of diving can be done! It is the closest to space travel you may ever get to.

But the ocean provides a great diving excursion as well, with untouched coral, interesting coral formations, amazing sealife and visibility that is a good as anywhere else...if not better. The best part, you dont see any other divers. The Tulum ocean diving is almost a secret, and those who find out about it are pleasantly surprised.

The beauty of Tulum is the diverse experiences that you can have in both salt and fresh water. The ocean is littered with coral and fish, the jungle contains over 700 kms of underwater caverns that are full of crystal clear fresh water. All require a guide for the safest and best experience. But the guides know all the good spots so dont be shy to find one. Tulum is about diviersity and it is within close reach.
