Mexico consists of two-thirds mountains and highlands, while deserts dominate the north.
Mexico has a long coastline, covering 9,500 kilometres. Beautiful, white beaches can be found along the coast. Mexico can be divided into three areas: the highland areas, the great southern depression, and the coastal slopes. Tierra Caliente, are the hot regions below 914 metres. Tierra Templada, the temperate lands, range between 900 metres and 1500 metres, and above this altitude lie the Tierra Fria, the cold lands which are enclosed by the two mountain ranges. |
