    The people of Mexico, maybe more so than any other Latin American culture countries, are very sensitive to people from the Unites States calling themselves “Americans”.
    Mexicans consider themselves Americans, “Estados Unidos Mexicanos” therefore, it is important that Americans refer to themselves as Americans from the United States or “Estados Unidos Americanos”.

    At last count, there are more than 50 indigenous languages (other than Spanish) spoken in Mexico.

  • 6. On September 15th and 16th Mexican Independence is celebrated throughout the country, with a variety of activities.
    In the early hours of September 16th, 1810, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a priest in the small town of Dolores, Guanajuato, rang the church bell to gather the townspeople.
    He called for the people of Mexico to rise up against the Spanish Crown, thus initiating Mexico's War of Independence.
    The country did not achieve independence until 1821, but it is this event, known as the Grito de Dolores which is commemorated every year in town squares across Mexico.
  • 7. Somewhere around 1000 BC, the first of Mexico's ancient civilizations, the Olmecs, established themselves in what are now the states of Veracruz and Tabasco.
    They worshipped a jaguar God, built cities, constructed massive stone head carvings, and spread throughout central and southern Mexico until their civilization mysteriously vanished around 400 BC.
    The Conquest of New Spain, a great and tragic history, begins in April of 1519  when a Cortes lands in Veracruz, about 200 miles from the Aztec capital.

    The Sonora Desert extends from the center of Mexico to the Pacific Coast.
  • 9. Mexico City is arguable the largest metropolis in the world with a population of over 17 million people in the greater Mexico City area.
