Mexico is one of the most visited places in the world, but it has many economic and social concerns.
For three centuries Mexico was a colony of Spain until it achieved independence early in the 19th century.
The global financial crisis in late 2008 caused a massive economic downturn in Mexico the following year, although growth returned quickly in 2010. Ongoing economic and social concerns include low real wages, high underemployment, inequitable income distribution, and few advancement opportunities for the largely indigenous population in the impoverished southern states.
Mexico is estimated to be the world's third largest producer of opium with poppy cultivation. Crime, driven by the drug cartels, is just one of the visible symptoms.
