Occupying a land of great geographical diversity, Mexico has the largest Spanish-speaking population in the world and is home to a distinct set of cultures. Encompassing desert and jungle, tropical and subtropical climates, high mountains and over 9000 kilometers of coast, the country is well known for its natural beauty, vibrant cultural life, and fascinating history. Before colonization by Spain, Mexico produced the advanced cultures of the Mayas and Aztecs, both of whose pyramids, monuments, and artwork symbolize the country. From 1521 until 1821 Mexico was ruled by Spain, and its territory extended well into what is now the United States.
