Meeting many worlds.

Mexico is sensational, because you are not only visiting a beautiful landscape, you are visiting a country, in every sense of the word.

Improving transportation.

In Cancun in particular, companies and the government have worked to try to improve local public transportation in different ways, with more modern units and a greater number of them trying to make the service effective and in line with our days. however the folklore of the Mexican always reaches modernity and where we can see a bus, with Wi-fi, television and air conditioning, we can also see the guy who gets on the bus to sing, the guy who found in the word of God a new way of living and gets on the bus to preach it, the guy who sells his records with music hits in Andean version, the families who went to the beach, the tourist who travels to WalMart to buy groceries, we are all characters of this colorful staging that although it may suffer at peak hoursTraveling is about learning, having new experiences and for many the stuffed animal that adorns the front of the truck along with the religious images and the cumbia music mean something absolutely different and worth the experience, so when you are staying at your favorite Oasis do not hesitate to get on a truck, it may not be the most luxurious of transports, but it will certainly be an experience you will not want to forget.
