Mexico ranks seventh in the world as a destination for foreign visitors, and with its friendly citizens, picturesque colonial towns, and sun-drenched beaches it’s easy to see why. Mexico’s relationship to the rest of the world is rapidly changing; economists have predicted that Mexico will become one of the five most dominant economies by 2050. As the country grows, however, it has stayed true to its most valuable cultural assets: several rich indigenous civilizations, a cuisine that is both varied and renowned, and a genuine, open-armed hospitality that is unparalleled elsewhere in the world.
Mexico’s cultural heritage, a mixture of indigenous, European, and international influences, guides many aspects of modern Mexican life, including its cuisine, art, architecture, language, and music. Mexico’s natural beauty is showcased by the azure waters of the Mayan Riviera, the verdant jungles that are home to an incredible array of exotic plants and animals, and the austere deserts of the north. Cuernavaca is a hidden gem among many popular Mexican destinations, offering participants the unique chance to experience authentic Mexican culture.

My host family was great. I never felt uncomfortable. I knew that I could always knock on one of their doors and hang out.
