Mexico is the product of a rich native Aztec, Maya and hundreds more cultures heritage, three centuries of Spanish rule, and a shared border with the world’s richest country, the United States. Today, most Mexicans are mestizos, which means they have a mix of Native and Spanish blood.
During the course of its history, Mexico has been home to great artists. The Maya and other Native made impressive murals, sculptures, and jewelry. Contemporary Mexican artists include great painters, photographers, sculptors, and muralists.
Mexico is by far one of most culturally diverse countries in the world, home of ancient cultures such as the Aztec, Maya and Olmec and hundreds more, whose amazing buildings can still be seen today. Mexico is a land of extremes, with deep canyons and high mountains in the center of the country, extensive deserts in the north, and lush rain forests in the south and east. The stretch of land called the Yucatán Peninsula extends into the Gulf of Mexico from Mexico’s southeastern tip.
I have traveled with David Reyes in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, Belize, and Mexico. He is an excellent guide and leader…very knowledgeable about Mayan history and culture. He is an excellent interpreter of and guide to the contemporary society of these countries as well. And then there are the birds! He can spot, identify and beautifully photograph these big and little beauties that are found throughout Central America. He is dynamic, energetic, humorous, multilingual, and a people person bringing out the best in all of his travelers. I eagerly look forward to my next Wonders for Wanders trip! Sharon B, New York
One more full day in Antigua, Guatemala. I highly recommend travel to this country. If you want to travel in Guatemala safely and comfortably...I recommend having David Reyes plan your tour. Does not matter how many people are in your group. David guides one person...to a group of 16-18 people. I thought that our group of 14 was ideal. David has a degree in Tourism. He is highly knowledgable. His English is perfect. I met David, several years ago, when he was our Tour Director for a tour to Guatemala and Belize. Since that time, David has led trips for my groups to Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico.
This trip was 5 star! You cannot beat the organization and agenda skills of Kathy partnered with David’s “on the ground” knowledge, skill set and personal interest in every individual. We smoothly sailed into and out of Honduras and for those with special interests such as birding or hiking, David did not disappoint. It was all there!!!
