Mexico is a place where worlds collide. From lush tropical jungles to orange sunburnt deserts, vast green pine forests to white snow capped volcanoes, and deep blue lakes, Mexico is a land full of surprises. And all these amazing landscapes are inhabited by an equally surprising range of wildlife and human cultures from flamingoes to bison, howler monkeys to prairie dogs, jaguars to wolves, the annual traditional tequila harvest and the ancient Mayan rituals that still exist.
