Two well differenced seasons can be noticed in Mexico: the dry season (from late November to early June) that is also the high tourist season, and the rainy season (from June to November), showing torrential though brief rainfalls which mainly take place by the afternoons.

Within Mexico City the weather is dry and mild. Mornings and nights are usually fresh, unlike the afternoonswhich are usually warmer. Mornings and nights use to be fresh, unlike afternoons when temperatures rise to warmer degrees. Average temperatures between December and March is 20° C, while during the warmer months (April and March) thermometers can go up to 31° C. Afternoon rains usually pour during July and August, they can happen to fall every single day but will rarely last for more than two hours.Vegetation

In Mexico, there are several types of vegetation. This is due to the great variation in the relief of its territory, the different climates and the various types of soil.
There are great extensions of land where vegetation is scarce, such as in the deserts and the high mountains, but there are also jungles where we can find a lot of vegetation with trees of different heights andgreat variety.

It has long been known that Mexico together with Central America constitutes one of the regions of greatest plant diversity. However, attempts to quantify this diversity in Mexico have been hindered not only by the lack of a comprehensive inventory of the known species, but also because a significant number have yet to be discovered or described for science. Based on the totalnumber of species (30,489) in six regional Mexican Floras with different - even contrasting - biogeographic and ecological conditions (Table 22), and considering the high proportions of regional endemism in Mexico, Toledo (1995c) estimated that the entire flora of Mexico might have over 30,000 species of vascular plants. (This rough approximation recognized that some species are found in several ofthese six regions, but that other Mexican species are in none of these particular regional floras.)


The country was engulfed in civil war, as several political and armed groups fought each other for control of the country. A major step towards the end of armed conflict involved the promulgation of the present constitution of Mexico in 1917, the official end of the Revolution.Nonetheless, conflict and political unrest such as the Cristero War persisted up to the late 1920s.
In 1936, president Lázaro Cárdenas arrested and deported Plutarco Elías Calles, the ex-president whose continuing political power had overshadowed the 3 intervening presidents. This act would mark the beginning of post-revolutionary Mexico, characterized by the rule of the Partido Nacional Revolucionariofounded
The Mexican Revolution was a social and cultural movement which brought the beginning of changes in Mexico. The revolution started as a rebellion against the Mexican President Porfirio Díaz. His regime not only accepted the involvement of the United States in Mexican life but also centered on expanding the Mexican economy. If successful, this would have eventually classified Mexico as acapitalist country. Francisco Madero, Emiliano Zapata, Pancho Villa, Pascual Orozco, and Venustiano Carranza were all important individuals in the revolution because of the roles they played in the success of the revolution in Mexico.
Mexican culture, such as cinema, music and literature was also a driving factor in gaining support during the revolution. Mexican nationalism was an evident themeamong most music, cinema and literature because of the way it could persuade people to join the fight.
[pic]After Benito Juárez’s death in 1872, Porfirio Díaz wanted to take over as Mexico’s leader. The two men were allies and had fought against the French in the Battle of Puebla, but once Juárez rose to power in Mexico, Díaz tried to unseat him. Díaz began his reign as president and dictator of...
