If I was to consider any country my home away from home, it would be Mexico. There’s so much I love about this country; its music, its colourful culture, its art, its history. It’s a fascinating place that’ll take you many trips to get the hang of. And there’s so much of Mexico to be explored – from the Carribean beaches that are frequented by tourists to the stunning Pacific coasts; from little pueblos hidden away in mountains to one of the world’s largest and most dynamic cities, from desert in the north to a pocket of rainforest in the south.
