Located just across the southern border of the United States, Mexico is a conveniently located destination for Canadians and Americans. It is the 5th largest country in the Americas; its vast land mass provides a varied experience for travelers. Mexico offers a range of attractions that can satisfy anyone from the intrepid traveler to those who prefer rest and relaxation: ancient Mayan ruins, Spanish-influenced colonial edifices, pristine beaches, mountains, deserts, contemporary nightclubs, and posh restaurants.
Mexico straddles two climates: one temperate and the other tropical, thereby providing a variety of ambient temperatures and ecosystems that can satisfy almost all travelers. Northern Mexico tends to be dry, with intermittent rainfall, while the southern tropical lowlands have high precipitation. There are two seasons in Mexico: the dry season (late November to early June) and the rainy season (from June to November).
