Morelia is a UNESCO World Heritage site with fun social life. At Villa Montana’ spa compulsive travelers can de-stress with a chocolate bath. Anyone looking for a mate hangs an image of St Anthony upside down at El Miguelito restaurant until a mate is found. Mating is on everone's mind in Michoacan. In Pazcuaro Mario spends 2 years to finish a bowl the way the ancients made them and sells it for $5,000! Giant turtles travel thousands of miles to the Michoacan Pacific coast to mate. At night we follow them laying the eggs and hatchlings returning to the sea with the moon pointing them to the water. less

It is 80 miles from Chichen Itza, one of the most impressive Mayan cities. In the 19th century the sisal boom created enormous wealth. In 1900 there were more millionaires in Merida than in Paris. The wealth spurred the construction of mansions all over the city. When nylon replaced sisal in 1930 the economy collapsed, houses were abandoned and fell apart. In the last ten years visitors from Northamerica and Europe have been buying them and restoring them to their original splendor like this mansion in the center of town. less

Son Jarocho is an old tradition of communities of musicians coming together to play their hand made instruments (Jarnas, Requintos, harps, etc) at parties know as Fandagos. Traditionally the woman dance a Mexican tap, known as el Sapateo. The Cojolites reinvigorated this tradition in the late 1990's. Son Jarocho now has become very popular amongst the youth in Veracruz, and this video is great showcase of this unique music. Check us out at www.myspace.com/loscojolites less

According to legend it was where the Gods gathered to plan the creation of man. Construction of Teotihuacán commenced around 300 BC, with the Pyramid of the Sun built by 150 BC. The city reached its zenith approx. 150--450 A.D., when it was the center of an influential culture. At its height the city covered over 30 square km, and housed a population of as many as 200,000. The central avenue is called "Avenue of the Dead". The city contained palaces, apartment buildings, a marketplace, huge pyramids and temples used for worship. Teotihuacán was a place of pilgrimage in Aztec times, who identified it with the myth of Tollan, the place where the sun was created. Around 750 A.D., much of the city was burned, possibly during an invasion or a rebellion. less

However, they imposed rules preventing indigenous people from attending. In response to this another lasting tradition was born from the people: the tradition of "Los Toritos"(Little Bulls) . In the villages of Mexico people staged their own bull fights with a Paper Mache bull. What remains is an exciting festival that remembers the traditions of the people and an independence from Spain.In this video I witnessed this fun celebration in Morelia, in the State of Michoacan. less

It is located in the northern center of the Yucatán Peninsula, present-day Mexico. It is one of the most important examples of the Mayan-Toltec civilization in Yucatán. Chichen Itza was a major regional center in the northern Maya lowlands from the Late Classic through the Terminal Classic and into the early portion of the Early Postclassic period. The site exhibits a multitude of architectural styles, from what is called “Mexicanized” and reminiscent of styles seen in central Mexico to the Puuc style found among the Puuc Maya of the northern lowlands. The presence of central Mexican styles was once thought to have been representative of direct migration or even conquest from central Mexico, but most contemporary interpretations view the presence of these non-Maya styles more as the result of cultural diffusion. Unesco has declared Chichen Itza a World heritage Site less

The dramatic villa faces the south-western sunset and features a privileged and majestic view overlooking the Bay of Banderas, across to Puerto Vallarta, ringed by the Sierra Madre jungle. Designed by architect Ruben Flores, the rugged and diverse coastline is an empty canvas for the country's reknown artisans to execute their best ideas. The tropical coastal life is often imagined by a lavish cascading pool, with a massage and a cocktail. For the builders of these homes, experiencing the art of leisure, a certain joie de viver comes from natural sweeping vistas from a clifftop at the edge of the sea, fresh wind in your face. It is an emotively framed mural view at entry, romantic outdoor living, eating, resting spaces, cascading water features, the finest and grandest wooden palapas and intricate stonework throughout. Descend a stone walkway to the beach and watch the waves crash against the promontory point of Pontoquito. less
