Mexico is a land of extremes: from the high mountains of Sierra Madre to the deep canyons in Chihuahua; the sweltering Sonoran desert to the dense Lacandon rainforest. Officially named the United Mexican States, Mexico has a chequered past (as seen in the TV saga “Narcos Mexico”), but Mexico today is all about the Mayan culture in Yucatan, elk hunting (check with New Mexico Game and Fish first), and of course drinking a prime agave tequila in old Mexico City – or mezcal, if you’re feeling brave!
