Mexico is a country where loyalty, and the love for family and friends are paramount. The quality of life has been increasing, and more than half of the population is made up of young people. The opportunity for business in automotive industries, food, tourism and oil, is broad with a great potential for growth.
With 34 locations designated as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO and 8 traditions and celebrations on its list of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the Mexican culture is rich and varied in its expression, and can be appreciated with all the senses. It is open and welcoming to foreigners. While most immigrants come from neighbors the US and Guatemala, many people from Spain, Colombia, Argentina, Cuba, Honduras, Venezuela, El Salvador, Canada and France also call Mexico home.
México is a land of extremes, with high mountains and deep canyons in the center of the country, sweeping deserts in the north, and dense rain forests in the south and east.
México is the product of a rich Indian heritage, three centuries of Spanish rule, and a shared border with the United States. Today, most Mexicans are mestizos, which means they have a mix of Indian and Spanish blood.
Throughout its history, México has been home to great artists. The Maya and other Indians made impressive murals, sculptures, and jewelry. Modern Mexican artists include great painters, photographers, sculptors, and muralists.
