About Mexico

Located just south of the USA, Mexico is a very large country. Mexico’s capital city is Mexico city. The country has many mountain peaks, stunning plateaus and beautiful beaches. The society is characterized by extreme wealth of some and poverty of most with a limited middle class. Average temperatures swing between 50-90 degrees depending on where you are.  Many don’t realize that Mexico is one of the world’s most biologically diverse countries, and supporting a wide range of ecosystems. A hop skip and a jump will get you there quickly. We fly into Texas and drive across the border to visit our partner there.
