Holidays in Mexico: The Gateway to Latin America

Although it officially belongs to the North American continent, the country of Mexico is also considered part of Latin America and therefore has all the charm and allure of that fascinating region, which everyone should visit at least once in his or her life.

The Ultimate Holiday Destination

Officially referred to as the United Mexican States, the country is bordered by the US to the north; the Pacific Ocean to the southwest; the Gulf of Mexico to the east; and Guatemala, Belize and the Caribbean Sea to the south.

Although Spanish is Mexico’s official language, English, too, is widely spoken, making it the ideal holiday destination for Americans and English-speaking Europeans, along with anyone from Spanish or Portuguese-speaking countries.
