Things to do in Mexico

One of the most exciting things to do in Mexico is visit Chichén Itzá, a pre-Columbian city located in the Yucatan.

The Guadalajara Cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral built in Renaissance style. Originally built in 1568, the cathedral has endured considerable damage over the years and is in a constant state of reconstruction. The cathedral features two large towers which dominate the city’s skyline.
