  Cinco de Mayo - May 5th
Cinco de Mayo - Mexico

The holiday of Cinco De Mayo, The 5th Of May, commemorates the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862. It is primarily a regional holiday celebrated in the Mexican state capital city of Puebla and throughout the state of Puebla, with some limited recognition in other parts of Mexico, and especially in U.S. cities with a significant Mexican population. It is not, as many people think, Mexico's Independence Day, which is actually September 16. More on Mexico's Cinco de Mayo history...

  Destination Highlight: Lake Chapala
Lake Chapala, Mexico

Lake Chapala, Mexico's largest fresh water lake, is known worldwide for its mild weather, scenic charm and incredible sunsets. It is a popular vacation getaway for citizens of Mexico and one of Mexico's largest ex-pat retirement locations. Lake towns such as Ajijic, Chapala and Jocotepec are only 25 miles south of Guadalajara so it is a natural weekend or vacation spot for the inhabitants of Mexico's second largest city. Mainly located in the state of Jalisco but also extending into Michoacan, the lake is approximately 50 miles long by 10 miles wide. More on Lake Chapala...
