Recent reviews in Mexico
Mexico wears 2 faces, one tied to the old world and the other speeding ahead into a digital future. Internationally known for its Gulf of Mexico and Pacific beaches, it is also a drug-fueled environment of cartels where personal safety has to be a priority.
Dressed in mountains, deserts, jungles, ancient cities (think Teothuacan - Aztec, Chichen Itza - Mayan) and Spanish colonial towns, there is also a plethora of upscale shops to duck into, incredible museums to mosey around and contemporary restaurants and funky bars to indulge in. Sitting in the southern half of North America, it is bordered by the United States, Guatemala, Belize, the Caribbean Sea, the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Classified as a newly industrialized country with an upper-middle income, it is a regional power and the 9th most visited country in the world (32.1 million annually), probably due to it having so many UNESCO World Heritage Sites (6th in the world).
Mexico has a population of 123,166,749 with 56% connected to the Internet and all of them jumping onto Facebook, giving Mexico the largest number of Internet users in Spanish speaking countries. The speed of connection is definitely under par compared to the world average and there are little or no acts of censorship in relation to the Internet. But this is a moot point, as threats (and deaths) are levied against reporters and bloggers putting stories out in the world regarding violence, drug cartels and drug trafficking. With 50% of the population living in poverty (large unemployment rates) and negative press in relation to the country's everyday violence, Mexico has seen a drop in tourism. Guadalajara unfortunately has the dubious title of being Mexico's money-laundering capital.
Despite the dark cloud over Mexico, there is a heightened sense of excitement in relation to its tech industry that already accounts for approximately 30% of the capital city's economy. School programs are being implemented to encourage STEM training, building a tech zone and municipal infrastructure. Mexico is being seen as one of the most important hubs for digital journalism, as many international journalists decide to hit Mexico's ground running with their own startups such as SinEmbargo, El Daily Post and Horizontal in spite of serious threats from criminal groups and heavy-handed politicians.
