National Museum of Anthropology and History - Museo Nacional de Antropología e Historia - Museo de Antropología:
The following photos are representative of several exhibits at the museum. We will discuss those that we can.
One interesting site is Cacaxtla, which is located about an hours drive from Mexico City. Hardly on the Gulf Coast. However, Cacaxtla was founded by the Olmeca - Xicalanca from the Gulf Coast. That is why we are including them on this page. The art shown of them on this page is strongly influenced by the Maya about six centuries after the Olmeca - Xicalanca settled the region.
Cacaxtla was the principal seat of the “Olmeca” Culture, also known as the Olmeca - Xicalanca. Cacaxtla was the most powerful capital in the Tlaxcalan region during the first half of what is known as the Texcalac cultural phase lasting from A.D. 650-1100.
Another interesting site is Comalcalco In the State of Tabasco. It is well know for having "strange bricks" and other construction techniques which resemble those in the Middle East. The facial features of the masks found here also have a Mediterranean appearance.
Some of the items from those sites are shown on this page.
The Mexico City International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de México or AICM), also called Benito Juárez International Airport (IATA: MEX, ICAO: MMMX) is the major commercial airport that serves Mexico City, the capital of Mexico. It is also Mexico's and Latin America's busiest airport!
There are many very good hotels and motels in the area, and if you need a place to stay; Priceline.com can arrange that for you. In fact, we think they are the best way to do it!
We have personally, booked flights, hotels, and vacations, through Priceline.com and we can highly recommend them. Their website is very easy to use!
We have some links to Priceline.com on this page, since they can arrange all of your air flights, hotels and car.
We of course, appreciate your use of the advertising on our pages, since it helps us to keep our pages active.
We also have links on this page, that will connect you with several of the best hotels in Mexico City. Hotels that we have personally used!
We could, also suggest getting a hotel, and then letting them arrange for either a car, or a tour of Mexico City. If you call their Concierge Services, ahead of your arrival, all of this can be pre-arranged for you.
We have used this method, many times, when traveling in Mexico. We have found it to be safe and it works!!! We have never experienced a problem, doing it this way!
