Few countries and few journeys are so brimming with contrast. From the high-tech buildings in the capital of Mexico City to the agave fields around the small town of Tequila, you will see canyons and lush forests, Aztec ruins, ancient mining towns and traces of colonial architecture – every step taking you along a new path toward a new story. The countryside west of Mexico’s sprawling capital is a treasure trove of enthralling legends and breathtaking landscapes.
