To the delight of the eyes, Mexico is bathed in dazzling light and offers a wide range of colours: from the golden yellow of the Mayas coveted by the Spanish to the bright red of the peppers - the colour of the Revolution - to the blue of the agave - the plant used to make tequila - not to mention the turquoise blue of the sea of the Riviera Maya or the flaming green of the tropical forests. It is not impossible to move from a semi-desert area to a lush area at the moment of a turn. The Mexican contrast is strong and striking.
Diversified and very pleasant climates :
Mexico's climate offers very good conditions for visiting the country all year round, whatever the season. The tropical areas are located in the south of the country (the entire Mayan region), on the Pacific coast and in the Gulf of Mexico. The whole central part of the country is at high altitude, so cooler in the evening and at night. The north is semi-desert and desert, hot and dry. Everywhere, the days are temperate or warm depending on the season, due to the omnipresent sun.
