Spanish is Mexico's official language, but Nahuatl, Mayan and around 66 regional indigenous languages, derived from pre-Hispanic cultures, are also still spoken.

Ethnic groups in Mexico include Mestizo (Amerindian-Spanish) 60%, Amerindian or predominantly Amerindian 30%, white 9% and other 1%.


Have a one-of-a-kind experience by visiting Yacatas Purepechas in western Mexico. Explore the ancient ruins of Paquime in Chihuahua, a key representation of northern Mexican cultures.

Visitors looking for the perfect souvenir will be dazzled by the unique handicrafts on offer that vary from region to region. From pieces of Talavera china from Puebla, earthenware crockery from Michoacán and a dining-room set from Colima to a shawl from Saltillo and red glass goblets from Tlaquepaque the choices are endless. Or, choose an earthenware jug from Tonalá, a poncho from Oaxaca or a piece of silverwork from Taxco.
