Mexico is situated in the northern region of the American continent linking the Gulf of Mexico on the east and the Pacific Ocean on the west. It is encircled by the United States on the north and by Guatemala and Belize on the south and is divided into six tourist regions. These regions are Northern Mexico, Central Mexico, Southern Mexico, The Yucatan Peninsula, The Pacific Coast and The Baja California Peninsula.

Morelia, the state capital of Michoacan, is a beautiful city built during Mexico’s Viceregal era. It is located in the state’s northern region, 303 kilometers west of Mexico City. It has a warm, semi-humid climate with rain during the summer and an average temperature of 20 degree Celsius.
The city offers a pleasant and hospitable atmosphere, as well as many architectural treasures in its Historic Center, which was declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. One will find numerous colonial-style constructions, such as the Palacio Nacional and La Cathedral, a Baroque-style structure built with pink ashlars. Morelia also hosts important cultural events, such as international film and music festivals.
Due to its strategic location, many tourists use the city as a base before heading out to nature reserves, such as the monarch butterfly sanctuary and the Parque Nacional Jose Maria Morelos, the Jose Maria Morelos National Park. Morelia also is a place where the traditions of the Tarascan Indians persist, as seen in the traditional attire they wear, the handicrafts they make and the historical importance of the archaeological ruins at Ihuatzio and Tzintzuntzan.

Morelia can also be considered as the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destination that enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers to become one of the most visited places.
