There are also many archaeological sites rich in culture belonging to the Maya, Olmec, Tarascan, and Aztec civilizations.  Beautiful national parks are plentiful and cover land ranging from desert to mountains to forests. Even if you just hang out in one of the modern cities, be assured, you will enjoy it.
