History and Culture

Mexican history has left its legacy, scattering the country with breathtaking archaeology. To the south, you'll find ancient sites like Chichen Itza, with its huge temples and pyramids; and serene smaller sites like Uxmal and Tulum. In the capital, Mexico City, there's the architectural beauty of the Palacio de Bellas Artes (Palace of Fine Arts), or the Zocalo, one of the world's largest public squares. Throughout Mexico there are quaint Spanish colonial towns with ornate chapels and cathedrals, lively plazas, and palatial haciendas all waiting to be explored.
