Mexico, traditions, culture and architecture, unforgettable. Civilizations that flourished nearly 4,000 years before the first contact with Europeans. And the mixture of pre-Hispanic civilizations and culture of Spain, passed during the 300 years of colonization by Spain and which today is reflected in the exceptional richness and strength of their culture.
Mexico ranks first in the American continent in the number of World Heritage by UNESCO, with 31 sites that received this title.

Shangri-La is a fictional place described in the 1933 novel Lost Horizon by British author James Hilton. Hilton describes Shangri-La as a mystical, harmonious valley, gently guided from a lamasery, enclosed in the western end of the Kunlun Mountains. Shangri-La has become synonymous with any earthly paradise but particularly a mythical Himalayan utopia — a permanently happy land, isolated from the outside world. In the novel Lost Horizon, the people who live at Shangri-La are almost immortal, living years beyond the normal lifespan and only very slowly aging in appearance.
The word also evokes the imagery of exoticism of the Orient.
Filmed in Tibet in August 2010
"Machu Picchu is a trip to the serenity of the soul, to the eternal fusion with the cosmos; where we feel our fragility. It is one of the greatest marvels of South America. A resting place of butterflies in the epicentre of the great circle of life. One more miracle." - Pablo Neruda
But the way to the holy city of Makchu Pichu is a fascinating experience, whatever way it is done. We climbed to a height of 2100 meters following the banks of the Urubamba River to the mountain and seeing the rainforest gorges and canyons and the majesty of the valleys appear before us.
