Located in southern North America, Mexico borders the United States of America to the north, Guatemala and Belize to the south, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Gulf of Mexico to the east.


A rich cultural legacy and the vibrant history of an advanced civilization have shaped the modern nation of Mexico. Influenced by Indian and Spanish cultures, Mexico is a unique blend of two different distinct societies.

Majestic mountains, vast beaches, beautiful lakes, valleys, and deserts attract tourist to Mexico year-round. After three hundred years of Spanish colonial rule Mexico struggled for years after independence to gain political and economic stability. Mexico continues to work to overcome the economic disparity between the very rich and extremely poor.

Political History and Divisions
Mexico has a federal republic government with the president as head of the state and government. After the Mexican Revolution began in 1910, the Mexican constitution was adopted in 1917. The government is divided into three branches: judicial, executive, and legislative, which work independently in their respective spheres.
