Mexico is the 13th largest independent nation by area in the world, the 6th largest in the Americas covering nearly 2 million square kilometres.
Much of the territory lie at altitude thanks to two huge mountain ranges, the Sierra Madre, essentially an extension of the Rocky Mountains in the United States which runs north to south and the Sierra Nevada running east to west through the centre of the country.
The unique geography of Mexico leads to a huge geographical range of conditions and diversity from one of the largest and most diverse deserts in North America, the Chihuahuan Desert which covers 362,000 kilometres.
The Mayan Riviera in the Quintana Roo province is the most popular destination for tourists who flock year round to the Caribbean beaches and diverse wildlife that is found on this limestone slab but the Yucatán Peninsular has so much more to offer than just beaches.
Inland there are jungle covered ruins, colonial cities like San Cristobal de las Cassas which can be used as a base to explore the abundant adventurous activities that Mexico has become known for such as caving, diving, trekking and zip lining as well as swimming in natural sink holes called cenotes.
Any visitor to Mexico will leave impressed by the shear amount of variety that the country offers.
