The Estado de México is the most populated of the entire nation. It maintains a close economic relationship with Mexico City. The Nevado de Toluca is located in its territory and two more volcanoes that shares with other states: Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl.

Although its most important city and capital is Toluca, most of the tourism interest and activity is related to nature and traditions. Valle de Bravo, for example, is a favorite destination for those who want to escape from the big urban areas, but places like Aculco, Ixtapan de la Sal, El Oro and many other places are worth noting.

The State of Mexico shares with Michoacan the Sanctuary of the Monarch Butterfly. In addition, it is home to the pyramids of Teotihuacán, the most visited national archaeological zone, even above Chichen Itza and Tulum!
