What Are the Six Main Land Regions of Mexico?

The six regions of Mexico are Northern Mexico, Central Mexico, Southern Mexico, the Yucatan Peninsula, the Pacific Coast region and the Baja Peninsula. These six regions of Mexico vary widely in culture, geography and topography. Additionally, many of these areas have large amounts of diversity within their borders as well.

The Northern region is a thriving business center, and contains large tracts of unspoiled land for recreation as well. Central Mexico, in contrast, contains primarily volcanic plateaus, and features many large mountain ranges. Southern Mexico is rife with ecotourism, and contains a seacoast, along with jungles and marshy habitats. The Pacific Coast and Baja Peninsula regions both offer some coastal tourist destinations, though the region of the Pacific Coast is larger than that of the Baja Peninsula.
