Mexico Has It All And Aims To Please
Mexico is the land of Mariachis, enchiladas, bright woven rugs, mole sauce simmered with dark chocolate and tequila.
Tequila is made from the agave cactus and can only be made in the state of Jalisco, the city of Tequila named after this spirit. Click here to watch a video about the making of tequila in Tequila.
Think of Mexico and your mind takes you to far away white sandy beaches lined with leaning palms, dense, diverse jungles, and mountains and volcanoes reaching toward the sky.
Ancient Mayan and Aztec civilizations left their mark. Ruins and archaeological sites dot the landscape as a reminder of these advanced civilizations from as far back as 8000 BC, including Chichen Itza, Coba and Tulum, to name a few.
Mexico is rich in culture, history and tradition. Day of the Dead has roots in Aztec tradition and Cinco de Mayo celebrates independence from Spain in 1810. Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, two famous Mexican artists are well known in the the arts in modern Mexico. Frieda for her self portraits and Diego as a muralist.
Frieda is considered an icon for Chicanos, Feminists and the LGBTQ movement.
