Take an adventure holiday to MEXICO with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.
Mexico is located in the middle of the continent of Americas, bordering the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico, between Belize and the US and bordering the North Pacific Ocean, between Guatemala and the US. Mexico is a country of contrasts, an eclectic mix of modern and traditional. From amazing desert landscapes to stunning snow-capped volcanoes, and from ancient ruins to industrialised cities Mexico has it all.
Much of the country is characterized by a semiarid climate with limited rainfall. The south of Mexico consists of dense forests, a tropical climate, a largely indigenous population. The Yucatán Peninsula extends northeast from the Isthmus of Tehuantepec into the Gulf of Mexico. It is a flat, low-lying region without surface rivers. The northwestern peninsula is dry and brushy and supports some agriculture; further south rainfall is plentiful and the peninsula is covered by tropical rain forests.
Ancient Mexico and Central America were home to some of the earliest and most advanced civilizations in the western hemisphere. Maya civilization flourished in southern Mexico and Central America between AD 250 and 900, a time known as the Classic period.
