Mexico Facts

All-inclusive and escorted Mexico tours bring vacationers to a fascinating and diverse travel destination rich in culture and Spanish colonial influence plus the ancient tribal ruins of the:

  • Olmec
  • Toltec
  • Aztec
  • Teotihuacan

Conquered by the Spanish in 1521, Mexico never regained its independence until 1821. Three hundred years of Spanish Colonial rule dramatically influenced just about everything in Mexico, from its identity and language to Mexico’s architecture and traditions.

In recent years Mexico tours have become increasingly popular introducing vacationers to a unique blend of Spanish, North American, and ancient cultures.
