AND THE SOUTH
Oaxaca is a shining example of the culture of colonial Mexico, where the charm of the old-world Spanish meets the indigenous Indian culture with marvelous results. Walking the streets of Oaxaca is an experience like no other, and strolling in any direction will bring you to cafes, small parks, colonial homes and hundreds of other attractions.
If Mother Nature at her most glorious is your destination wish, Chiapas is the place to be. You'll find rain forests, waterfalls, rivers, lakes, volcanoes and a beautiful coastline. The Mayas left their mark here in the form of ancient pyramids looming mysteriously from the jungle, including the famous site Palenque.
While Tabasco is not a major tourism attraction, if you are hunting history you'll find a rich treasure trove of Olmec artifacts and sites here that will keep you fascinated for days. The famous sauce that bears the Tabasco name is not made here, of course. It's actually from Louisiana! Veracruz is one of the most beautiful port cities steeped in history. Hernan Cortez landed on an island just off the coast in 1519 before his conquest of the Aztec Empire, and the city has existed since then. The historical exploration opportunities are limitless, and the surroundings beautiful.
Cancun is a legendary vacation spot, with crystal-clear water and beautiful, well-maintained beaches. You'll run out of days long before you run out of things to do and fun to have in one of the top tourism cities in the world!
