Grink,

You might want to check out 2 old threads for a start. One is entitled "Mexico--where to go for a week to relax". It last posted on Dec 30, 2004. The other thread is "Acapulco vs Cancun???", which last posted on Nov 24th.

If you want to go somewhere other than a beach resort, then you can try Mexico City and it's archaeological museum (one of the best in the world), it's pyramids near Teotihuacan, its Zocalo, its' Guadalupe Shrine, its Chapultepec Castle, its floating gardens at Xochimilco, and it's gigantic soccer stadium, Azteca. The cultural center of Mexico would be San Luis Potosi--where there are also beautiful gardens in addition to the art and sculpture. Copper canyon west of Chihuahua is where about one-third of the world's butterflies go to mate and reproduce each year (millions of them there). Merida is the old historical beautiful town of year gone by. Guadalajara has the tequila factories and beautiful town center. Oaxaca and Puebla are known for their varied cuisines and unusual spices.

There are also other pyramids throughout the country--such as at Chichen Itza on the Yucatan Peninsula and Tulum, south of Cancun.

I guess there's something for most everyone.

Enjoy
