North America Travel Guide

North America's map You'd think a North America travel guide would be almost pointless, as the touristic value of Canada and the United States are well known throughout the World, but this is such a vast region that even inhabitants of the area constantly have locations worth visiting that are bound to amaze them.

Despite the fact that it's a vast continent, North America actually consists of only three states: Canada, the United States of America and Mexico, the latter being a bridge between North and Central America and sometimes gets placed under either continent's banner. Although most of North America's population originated from European immigrants and the widest spoken languages are English, Spanish and French, this New World is in many aspects radically different than Europe.

The North American continent is a territory of extremes (not only in terms of climate zones but also in terms of biodiversity and geographic features). Across North America you can find the world's biggest living being (a gigantic sequoia), the largest canyon (Grand Canyon), the deepest valley (Death Valley), the biggest waterfall (Niagara) or the largest cave (Mammoth Cave). In addition to these magnificent landscapes, North America is also the birthplace of some amazing technological achievements, starting from the Mayan pyramids and ending with the space shuttle that took the first man on the moon.

The cosmopolitanism of most American cities has breaded a rich, and in many aspects, innovative culture. Cities like New York, Toronto, San Francisco, Los Angeles or Ciudad de Mexico have been setting the continents (and sometimes, even the world's) cultural trends. For those looking for relaxation, North America awaits with its thousands of miles of beaches (spread over the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf of Mexico coasts), high class winter resorts (Aspen, Alberta, Jackson Hole) and the strong air of the Rockies.
