Must-sees in Mexico

Skyline Guanajuato city Mexico
  • Mexico City
  • Comprising some 1,500 buildings that have been declared historically important, Centro Histórico (the historic centre) sits on top of the ruins of the capital of the Aztec Empire and is where the Spanish began building Mexico City in the 16th century.
Tulum Mexico Yucatán Peninsula ancient Mayan port city
  • Tulum
  • Breathtaking scenery combines with archeological significance at Tulum on Mexico’s Caribbean coastline. Azure ocean waters lap sandy shores dotted with ancient Mayan structures, from pyramids to walls, houses to burial sites.
Copper Canyon Mexico Sierra Madre Occidental mountains
  • Copper Canyon
  • Located in the Mexican state of Chihuahua, Mexico’s Copper Canyon has been ground out of the reddish rock from six rivers over centuries of water flow. Over 6000ft deep at places, Copper Canyon is perhaps one of Mexico’s lesser known natural splendours.

A deep dive on pesos

In 1993, after months of hyperinflation and capital flight from Mexico, then president Carlos Salinas de Gortari introduced a new Mexican peso (Neuvo peso) by stripping three zeros off the currency. Thus, $1000 of old pesos became just $1 of the new currency. Over the following three years, all new, re-valued currency replaced the old, resulting the the ‘Nuevo’ being dropped from the official name.
