Mexico is one of the most diverse countries in the world, culturally, ethnically, geographically, climatically, gastronomically...and arguably also one of the most interesting to visit. But Mexico is big and oddly shaped, traveling around takes time, and some areas are not quite safe. So, vast regions of the country remain uncovered in this site.
