Discover Mexico

Welcome to Mexico 🙂

Mexico (México ‘meh-hee-koh’ in Spanish) or the ‘United Mexican States’ (its official name), is the most populous Spanish-speaking country and the second-largest Roman Catholic nation in the world. It enjoys a unique cultural blend of different indigenous cultures with colonial Spanish traditions and modern industrialization. The country is part of the North American continent and is located directly south of the United States. To the south-east, it is bordered by Guatemala and Belize. The Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea lie on the east coast, and the Pacific Ocean on the west and south. The  country extends all along the 3,100 km-long southern border of the United States, most of which is formed by the Río Bravo, a major river known as Rio Grande in the neighbouring country. For more on Mexico, open this link

Mexico has 31 states and a Federal District (Distrito Federal), where the capital, Mexico City, commonly called ‘DF’ (deh-efe) or “CDMX” (Ciudad de México, syoo-dahd deh meh-hee-koh) is located. Broadly, the country is divided into seven regions: North, North Pacific, Central Pacific, Central Highlands, Gulf Coast, Yucatán Peninsula, and the South.

And you know what? 🙂 I have visited 16 of the 31 states of México Lindo y Querido (Beautiful and Beloved Mexico). Open the below links to read my stories in each state. No link implies that I have yet to write about or visit that state. It will happen in the near future, so stay with me 🙂

North Pacific: Baja (ba-ha) California, Baja California Sur, Sinaloa, Sonora

Central Pacific: Colima, Nayarit, Jalisco (ha-lees-koh), Michoacán (mee-cho-ah-kahn)

Central Highlands: Guanajuato (gwah-nah-hwa-toh), Hidalgo (eeh-dahl-goh), Estado de México, Puebla, Queretaro, Tlaxcala, Morelos, and the federal district of Mexico City

Gulf Coast: Tabasco, Tamaulipas, Veracruz
