Taste of Mexico

Mexicans have a variety of ancestry, the two main ones being Mestizos or Indigenous. Mestizos are a mixture of usually Spanish and Indian, although other Europeans and African slaves come into the equation. Indigenous descendants are of Mexico’s pre-hispanic inhabitants, but the majority of modern day Mexicans are Mestizos.

Ruins are abundant in this diverse country, and one of the well-known ancient civilizations in Mexico is the Aztecs. The Aztecs date back to their beginnings in the 14th Century, and many aspects of their culture are drawn from earlier Mexican civilizations. Even in modern day Mexican art now, it is possible to see strong influences from the Aztecs in regards to colors and designs in the numerous murals and art galleries throughout Mexico.
