If you are into ancient monuments and structures, it does not get better than this. The archaeological sites are huge, well maintained and reasonably priced. I also recommend visiting the museums, as the amount of interesting artifacts there can’t be seen anywhere else in the world.

You can find indigenous people in different places in Mexico. From small villages to city centers where they perform their dances and other rituals.
