Quote:
My wife was born in this region of Mexico, i happen to be in my tourist year, and it happened that I fell in love with this region and their traditions, the Istmo is a part between the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico and it is the narrowest part of the country; they have all kinds of cultures, like Zapotec, Huave, Mixteca, and you can walk on the streets and hear these people speaking their language, wearing their traditional costumes, and doing what they do the best: selling gold.

Quick Tips:

In this part of Mexico the weather is semi-arid, it is hot, very hot! All year-round the best thing to do is go to the beach! And have a couple of ice cold beers
