A devaluation of the peso in late 1994 threw Mexico into economic turmoil, triggering the worst recession in over half a century. The nation continues to make an impressive recovery. Ongoing economic and social concerns include low real wages, underemployment for a large segment of the population, inequitable income distribution, and few advancement opportunities for the largely Amerindian population in the impoverished southern states. Elections held in July 2000 marked the first time since the 1910 Mexican Revolution that the opposition defeated the party in government, the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). Vicente FOX of the National Action Party (PAN) was sworn in on 1 December 2000 as the first chief executive elected in free and fair elections.

CLIMATE OF Mexico: 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 solely as a function of elevation.
RELIGION OF Mexico: nominally Roman Catholic 89%, Protestant 6%, other 5%
POPULATION OF Mexico: 104,959,594 (July 2004 est.)>>>
ECONOMY OVERVIEW OF Mexico: Mexico has a free market economy with a mixture of modern and outmoded industry and agriculture, increasingly dominated by the private sector. Recent administrations have expanded competition in seaports, railroads, telecommunications, electricity generation, natural gas distribution, and airports. Per capita income is one-fourth that of the US; income distribution remains highly unequal. Trade with the US and Canada has tripled since the implementation of NAFTA in 1994. Real GDP growth was a weak -0.3% in 2001, 0.9% in 2002, and 1.2% in 2003, with the US slowdown the principal cause. Mexico implemented free trade agreements with Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and the European Free Trade Area in 2001, putting more than 90% of trade under free trade agreements. The government is cognizant of the need to upgrade infrastructure, modernize the tax system and labor laws, and provide incentives to invest in the energy sector, but progress is slow.

Guide Licensing Information for Mexico

There’s no other place like Mexico! It is truly a mecca for those who are looking for adventures and breath-taking beauty in one and the same place. According to the World Tourism Organization Mexico is one of the most visited countries in the world. It doesn’t appear to be surprising at all – cultural festivals, Meso-American ruins, nature reserves and colonial cities.

They say that the nation’s unique culture and temperate climate – a fusion of the Meso-American and the European – make Mexico an extremely attractive destination. In order to ensure that all the guides in Mexico provide only high quality service the representatives of the Ministry of Tourism imposed certain rules and regulations. According to these rules all the guides are obliged to go through a detailed training where they can learn all the necessary things concerning their motherland and its landmarks. After the period of thorough training they have to pass an examination and thus demonstrate their knowledge in the sphere of culture and history of Mexico.  

In case they get a satisfactory grade they are given a special certificate allowing them to provide guiding service and giving them the access to all the cultural and historical monuments of the country or a particular city.
