Mexico
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Mexico is situated in the Northern American continent, sharing its northern border with the United States. It is bounded on the west and south by the Pacific Ocean, to the east by the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea, and on the southeast by Guatemala and Belize. The official name of Mexico is the United Mexican States, and its capital is Mexico City.
 
2     In the middle of the 20th century, scientists discovered several ancient cities, located in the jungles of Mexico. The world was amazed with what they had found: gigantic pyramids with stairs to their tops, monumental palaces, and cathedrals full of sophisticated art, showing unknown civilizations and their gods.
 
3     Those cities are locations of ancient Mexico's civilizations of the Olmec, Maya, and Aztec. These sites of ancient culture, along with beautiful Caribbean nature, attract lots of tourists to Mexico. In fact, tourism is one of the dominant industries in the country.
