Like it's native jalapeno peppers and agave tequila, Mexico embodies a spicy, fiery passion for la vida.The same spirit overflows from the country's vibrantly colourful art and music, and its complex culture, history and geography. Mexico's charm is its mix of modern and traditional, the clichéd and the surreal, the ancient and the brand new.
