This web site is an excellent resource for Spanish teachers as it contains a plethora of reliable information about Mexico. Included in this site are maps, authentic recipes, Mexico?s history, its government, customs, traditions, holidays and current events. This site has many beautiful pictures of the country and its people. Definitely a place to visit if one needs to research anything concerning Mexico. I have included this site in several cultural lesson plans in order that students can access this web page as a way to connect to the information needed to complete activities related to the different plans. Although the data is in English, the information given is useful not only to the students, but to the teacher as well.

Technical Remarks:

This site performs at optimal capacity with inlinks allowing for easy navigation and connecting in minimal time. There are also outlinks to connect one to other relevant sites.

This site designed to inform the general public on all aspects of Mexico, the
country, its people, its culture and places to visit or live. It provides very
useful information for the individual conducting business within Mexico. The
site includes a monthly electronic publication, photo images, and even sound
bites. Be sure to connect to the yearly calendar which includes hot links
related to the important national holidays and festivals. The sections under
Culture include invaluable information on Mexico's history, traditions, foods,
recipes, and even a forum to request traditional recipes. In English and
Spanish.

I have incorporated this site using the page that links to " Art and Artesans."
While the information is in English, the content information is so very helpful
to the teacher. There are wonderful images and further links to related
readings. I was also able to find other information on the history and
architecture of haciendas in Mexico. I often create cultural links like these
to my own webpage!
