"Bienvenidos," and welcome to Mexico in which you will find a world of hidden treasures just waiting to be explored. Travelers from around the world regard Mexico as one of the premier vacationing destinations because of the endless activities and fun it has to offer. Ancient Aztec pyramids, beautiful, pristine beaches, authentic foods, and world class scuba diving are just a few of the amazing things that you can indulge in on your visit. Mexico has a very rich history and is proud to demonstrate its unique heritage by allowing visitors to see many of the wonderful historical sites it has to offer.
The land, called "Mesoamerica," which it known as during this time period by historians, was invaded by the Spanish in 1519. Two native civilizations the Mayans and the Aztecs were conquered, and in 1521 the Spanish overwhelmed the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan setting up what is known as one of the greatest conquests in all of North America.
Between the years of 1810 and 1821 Mexico, led by an unlikely group of rebels, sought to gain their independence from Spain. What started as an idealistic peasants' rebellion against their masters turned into a full scale guerilla war between 1815 and 1821. On the early hours of September 16th 1810 priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla a leader of the rebellion rang the famous church bell crying out for the people of Mexico to rise up against the crown of Spain. This date is recognized as Mexico's independence day and many of the same rituals such as the ringing of the bell still take place today.
As you can see its rich history, combined with amazing destinations for the sophisticated traveler, or the tranquil, white sandy beaches for the vacationer who simply wishes to do nothing at all, Mexico has something for everyone.
