MEXICO

  1. 1.  Mexico is bordered by the United States to the north and Belize and Guatemala to the southeast. Mexico is about one-fifth the size of the United States. Baja California in the west is an 800-mile (1,287-km) peninsula that forms the Gulf of California. In the east are the Gulf of Mexico and the Bay of Campeche, which is formed by Mexico's other peninsula, the Yucatán. The center of Mexico is a great, high plateau, open to the north, with mountain chains on the east and west and with ocean-front lowlands beyond.
  2. 2.  President: Enrique Peña Nieto (2012)  Land area: 742,485 sq mi (1,923,039 sq km); total area: 761,602 sq mi (1,972,550 sq km)  Population (2010 est.): 112,468,855 (growth rate: 1.1%); birth rate: 19.4/1000; infant mortality rate: 17.8/1000; life expectancy: 76.2; density per sq km: 57  Mexico City, 19,013,000 (metro. area), 8,591,309 (city proper)  Other large cities: Ecatepec, 1,731,900 (part of Mexico City metro. area); Guadalajara, 1,665,800; Puebla, 1,345,500; Nezahualcóyotl, 1,250,700 (part of Mexico City metro. area); Monterrey, 1,135,000  Monetary unit: Mexican peso Facts & Figures
  3. 3.  Mexico City offers a wide variety of restaurants where you can enjoy delicious national cuisine, such as sopas, guisados, tacos and antojitos (which are a fusion of indigenous and Spanish culinary traditions). The city is also well known for its gourmet and international fare. In restaurants with many years of tradition, such as the Hacienda de Los Morales, the San Angel Inn, and El Arroyo, you can try a wide array of soups, entrees and desserts.
  4. 4.  The Mexican Peso  Mexico's currency is the Mexican Peso. There are one hundred Mexican cents to every Peso.  The symbol for the the Mexican Peso is $. To distingush this from the Dollar, you sometimes see it presented as MX$ or e.g. $100 MN. The MN stands for Moneda Nacional, or National Currency.  Mexican Bank notes are printed in denominations of 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1000 Pesos. The most commonly used are the 50, 100 and 200 Peso notes.
  5. 5.  Spanish is Mexico's official language. Mexican Spanish is polite, clear and easy to understand by Latin American standards. The speed at which the language is spoken is not as accelerated as it is Spain and some South American countries and pronunciation is softer, making the language easier to 'pick-up' and easier to learn.
  6. 6.  GETTING FROM THE AIRPORT TO YOUR HOTEL:  Taxis are regulated and passengers should pay in advance at the taxi counter in Arrivals. Taxi fare from the airport to the Meeting venue and nearby hotels should be approximately 127 Pesos. Use only the clearly marked “AUTHORISED TAXI”service. These cars are white and yellow with black airplane stickers on the doors. A drawing of a car on the ticket will tell you what type of car the ticket is valid for. It is not recommended to walk outside the airport terminal in search of cheaper taxi service unless you have pre-arranged your service. Do not use the Green and White taxis.
  7. 7.  ARCHAEOLOGY - In Mexico City you can find archaeological ruins of the Mexica culture (more commonly known as the Aztec culture).

These are just some of the arts and crafts that you can buy in markets such as the Ciudadela and the Centro Artesenal Buenavista.  MUSEUMS - Mexico City has more museums than just about any other tourist destination in the world. Many are worth visiting for their architecture as well as their cultural offerings, which include art exhibits and history displays.  RELIGION AND MYSTICISM - Mexico City is one of the world’s capitals with the highest number of Catholic adherents, which comes as a result of colonial influences in religion, which are very much embedded in present-day religious practices.
