The Republic of Mexico curves like a great horn from its dry northern states bordering the United States down to the jungle-clad slopes of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas. This vast country embraces an enormous range of habitats, from semi-arid plains, rugged mountain ranges and desert through volcanic highlands, swampy coastal lowlands and tropical rainforests. Washed by the Pacific Ocean in the west and by the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea along its eastern coast, Mexico's beach resorts have long been major international tourist destinations. Every year, millions of visitors enjoy the wide variety of watersports, excellent big-game fishing and diving opportunities, and the festive atmosphere of resorts such as Mazatlan and Acapulco on the Pacific Coast, and Cancun and Cozumel on the warm, clear waters of the Caribbean. country, detailing its flora and fauna, its complex and tumultuous history, arts and culture, cuisine and vibrant urban centres. Visitors to Mexico can witness more than 3000 years of architecture, including the imposing ruined city of Teotihuacan, the great Mayan cities of the Chiapas and Yucatan regions and the remnants of Tenochtitlan, capital of the Aztecs.
