United Mexican States | Estados Unidos Mexicanos

México is a country located in North America. It is bordered on the north by the United States, on the south and west by the Pacific Ocean, on the southeast by Guatemala, Belize, and the Caribbean Sea, and on the east by the Gulf of Mexico.

Its capital and largest city is Mexico City, and the country is the largest Spanish-speaking country in the world.

México’s got something for everyone: it’s megadiverse as far as its native plants and animals; it is equally as diverse as far as cultures, ethnicity, and peoples that make up the country; it has got a wide range of landscapes – from deserts with cacti to green, Caribbean waters and picturesque beaches.
