has something for everyone,
whatever your style and whatever
your budget. The biggest problem you'll have is trying to pick your specifics
from such diversity!
Mexico City is a good place to start; it is second largest
city in the world and pulsates with the music of the marioachi bands and the sirens
of police cars. Art, history, religion, music and shopping - whatever you want,
has it in sombreros, though be warned the crime rate is high and travelling as
a lone female you may feel vulnerable, so vigilance and common sense should not
be left at home.
outside Mexico City is Teotihuccan (easily accessed by tourist buses), the ancient
city which housed 200,000 people in the 6th century. 'Impressive' does not begin
to sum up the walk down the Avenue of the Dead to the Pyramid of the Sun.
those seeking the splendours of Mayan civilisation off the beaten track, head
for Palenque National Park way down south by the Guatemala border, where 500 buildings
dating back 1,500 years lie (all but 43 of them still hidden) in verdant jungle.
This is guaranteed to knock your socks off!
