Where is Mexico?
Situated on the southernmost part of North America, Mexico – officially known as the United Mexican States – is bordered by the USA to the north and Guatemala and Belize to the south. It has coastlines along the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Caribbean Sea to the east.
What is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advice on traveling to Mexico?
The FCO does not advise against any travel to Mexico, citing the hurricane season (which normally runs from June to November and affects both the Pacific and Atlantic coasts) as one of the main concerns for travelers’ safety. There are also reports of drug-related violence, but this doesn’t usually extend to tourist destinations, and all travelers should be alert to the existence of street crime as well as more serious violent crime like robbery, assault and vehicle hijacking.
In short though, you should feel free to travel to Mexico and do business as you would any other country.

What’s the best time to call Mexico from the UK?
Mexico City lies over 5,500 miles from London and the the time zone is GMT -6 hours (-5 hours during UK summer time) – bear in mind that it’ll be the middle of the night over there when you’re working day is just beginning here.
The best time to call will probably be towards the end of your working day, to catch your Mexican counterparts as they clock on.
