Marinas in Mexico
Mexico is located in the northern region of the American continent between the Gulf of Mexico on the east and the Pacific Ocean on the west. It is bordered by the United States to the north and by Guatemala and Belize to the south. The Capital and largest city is Mexico city. The official language is Spanish and the currency is the Mexican Peso.
The United Mexican States, as it is officially called, are a federation of thirty-one free and sovereign states, which form a union that exercises jurisdiction over the Federal District and other territories. Each state has its own Constitution and Congress, as well as a judiciary, and its citizens elect by direct voting, a governor for a six-year term, as well as representatives to their respective unicameral state congresses, for three-year terms
The Tropic of Cancer effectively divides the country into temperate and tropical zones. Land north of the twenty-fourth parallel experiences cooler temperatures during the winter months. South of the twenty-fourth parallel, temperatures are fairly constant year round and vary only with height. This gives Mexico one of the world's most diverse weather systems allowing a wide variety of flora and fauna.
The road network in Mexico is the most extensive in Latin America with many multi-lane freeways or expressways most of which are tollways. The Mexico City International Airport remains the largest in Latin America and the 44th largest in the world transporting 21 million passengers a year. There are more than 30 domestic airline companies of which only two are known internationally: Aeroméxico and Mexicana.
The Mexican tourist industry is one of the largest in the world and Mexico is what you make of it. Its multi-billion-dollar tourism industry is adept at satisfying those who like their travel easy. But adventure is what you’ll undoubtedly have if you take a just a few steps away from the marina. Activity-based tourism, community tourism and genuine ecotourism – the type that actually helps conserve local environments – are developing fast in rural areas.
Both the Pacific and the Gulf of Mexico coasts are as diverse as the interior of the country and there are plenty of harbours to berth at, though marina's are still reletively few, for the size of the country, but more are being built.
