DOCUMENTARIES > TRAVEL > Mexico - Maya to Mariachis

Mexico: Maya to Mariachis captures all of the vibrancy and passion of Mexico, in a journey by producer/presenter Greg Grainger from the Pacific Coast to the Caribbean Sea.

This one-hour special features classic colonial towns, bullfights, ballet, and the legendary Monarch butterflies.

The Mexican's fervent religious devotion is featured with a pilgrimage by thousands of devotees carrying shrines and replicas of Christ on the Cross.

Their love of music is demonstrated with massed perfomances of Mariachi groups.

Memories of the Mayas are re-lived with visits to the Mayan pyramids and cities of Teotihuacan, Palenque, and Chichen-Itza.
