  • Traveling to Southern Peru in Mexico

    Tacna, an ancient city on the eastern coast of South America, is located just 40 minutes north of Mapusa (an ancient Roman city along the Magaluf peninsula). The city has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and many other national and international agencies. It has been suggested that the United States should build a consulate in Tacna.

    Tacna was once the capital of the ancient Maya civilization and also the center of high economic and political development in Central America. It is considered to be the last true urban center in Central America. As the number of people living in Tacna has been growing over the years, so has its importance as a port and international airport. It received international flights from major cities in North America and from worldwide destinations like Chile, Brazil, India and even Europe. The international terminal at Tacna was built by Air America and it can handle direct flights from Montreal, Toronto and New York City.

    The city of Tacna has two airports and they are both quite modern and offer good facilities. The main airport is in San Jose Paseo and it is located about four hours south of Mexico City. Another airport is located in Guayaquil and it is about three hours north of Mexico City. Both airports serve different purposes, since there are a lot of traffic congestion in the city. If you want to travel from the North to South America then either of these two airports is suitable.

    The third airport which serves Tacna as a port is in the southern part of the country, in the city of Tijuana. If you were planning to travel from Canada to Mexico, then you would need to fly to Vancouver and then take a train south all the way to Guayaquil. Once you get to Guayaquil, all you have to do is take a cab or rent a car to reach Tacna.

    When traveling to the southern part of Mexico, you will find that there are plenty of hotels, restaurants and other accommodations around. There are many buses and vans available to take you to and from the different places in the city of Tacna. Another option is to take a boat or an air taxi to get to the different beaches along the Pacific coast. The transport options are much better in the southern part of the country, since you will find the prices of transport more reasonable since there are no major highways and cities that connect the different parts of the country.

    To get to the beaches of the Pacific coast in the southern portion of Mexico, there are two main international airports in the region – Puerto Vallarta and Menorca. From these airports, all you have to do is take a train or a bus to reach the various locations in the Tacna region. Transportation in the region is much cheaper compared to other places in northern Mexico and in the United States for that matter. In short, traveling to the Tacna region of Mexico is easier than traveling in other parts of northern Mexico.

  • Manufacturing Takes Root in Mexico

    In Mexico, there are several manufacturing zones. These zones have sprung up around major cities. The reason behind this growth is the availability of cheap labor to be utilized in the production process. Another reason for this growing trend is the desire of companies from other countries to set up manufacturing units in Mexico. Mexico is now becoming an increasingly important economic, cultural and political ally of the United States.

    Some of the companies that have established plants in Mexico are Coca-cola, Unocal, AT&T, Boeing, Daewoo, Dell, Cisco, INSETV, Montana Pacific, Valcor Inc., Hyundai, Kawasaki, Under Armour and Xerox. Mexico has a thriving agricultural sector with large food and beverage and chemicals manufacturing plants. One such company is the Tractor Technology Corp. The corporation is involved in the production, transportation and marketing of agricultural products. Another major player in the food and beverage industry in Mexico is Banamex.

    There are major construction and infrastructure development projects happening all over Mexico. One example of this is the massive build-up being done in the state of Puebla. There are many factories and businesses in the state of Puebla, which manufacture consumer products including detergents, pharmaceuticals, food, chemicals, shoes, automobiles and semiconductors. The main industries of these factories include textiles, cement, metal works, roofing and adhesives, petroleum refining and chemical products. There is also an increasing demand for construction materials in Mexico.

    Some of the jobs being manufactured in Mexico are computer jobs, automotive jobs and IT jobs. In the state of Jalisco, you will find electronics and computer manufacturing. In Guadalajara you can find textile mills and textiles. In Mexico City, one of the biggest manufacturing complexes is the NEC corporation.

    The list of manufacturing companies in Mexico goes on. All of them employ a number of people who stay at home because they cannot go out to work.
