In the 1930s the Tepoztlán monastery was declared a national historic monument by President Lázaro Cárdenas. In the 1990s, UNESCO declared this and 13 other former monasteries on the flanks of the Popocatepetl Volcano as World Heritage Sites. Among them are examples of Franciscan, Dominican, and Augustinian constructions, making it interesting to compare the iconography and architecture favored by the three Orders. Mexico

Izamal, Mexico Mexico’s tourism secretary designated Izamal, in the Yucatán region, a pueblo mágico (magical city), and it’s easy to see why. The colonial buildings are awash in a vivid yellow that gives the monochromatic town a sunny look whatever the weather. Take a horse-and-buggy ride around the cobblestoned streets past marigold churches, government buildings, and the city’s centerpiece: the historic 16th-century Basilica of San Antonio de Padua.

The Cave of the Crystals, Naica, Mexico It looks like Superman’s Fortress of Solitude come to life. A thousand feet underground in a working lead and silver mine in Chihuahua, Mexico, opaque crystals of gypsum—some as large as four feet wide and 50 feet long—sprout at all angles from the volcanically heated water below. Temperatures in the cave, which was discovered only in 2000, can reach 150 degrees with nearly 100 percent humidity, conditions that only a superhuman could survive in for long.

Biko This Basque-Mexican hybrid is the place where hip Mexico City high-rollers go to eat the creations of joint chef owners Bruno Oteiza and Mikel Alonso. Two menus are offered: creative and traditional. Foie 100% cotton candy is imaginative with a Spanish feel, while a rib-eye steak served with baby corn and pigs’ ears is unmistakably Mexican. All dishes apply forward-thinking techniques to get the most out of local produce, combined with deft use of flavour.

Pujol Head chef Enrique Olvera has ditched the elaborations on classic dishes his Mexico city restaurant was previously renowned for, in favour of those that are market-inspired. Pujol’s food nods to a strong cultural legacy with traditional ingredients reworked into new dishes by the restaurant’s R staff: coffee, corn and flying ants are toasted and ground, stuffed into a dried pumpkin and wrapped in corn leaves. The staunchly traditional approach is paying significant dividends.
