Mexico is an ever-popular travel destination. The country is so large that we started mapping it as a series of regional maps years ago. The Gulf Cost extends from Brownsville, Texas through Vera Cruz to the Yucatan Peninsula. Due to the shape of the region, all of Belize and about half of Guatemala is included, but the focus is on the many attractions of the eastern Gulf coast of Mexico. Side 1 cover the northern coastal regions, going inland as far as Monterrey, Zacatecas, Morelia, and Mexico City.
Side 2 shows the Gulf Coast from Tampico to Carmen, then on to Merida, Cancun, and the southern tip of Belize. By the shape of this part of Mexico, the Pacific Coast, from the Guatemalan border westwards past Acapulco is also shown. All major roads are shown, but as passenger rail service was discontinued several years ago, we have opted to not show most rail lines. This is a map for explorers and adventurers to discover by driving. It covers all of historic Mexico and complements other ITMB maps detailing regions of a fascinating country, where the first word you learn is 'Hola!'
