Mexico is represented by one of Epcot's dominant landmarks, a huge building like a Mayan or Aztec pyramid overlooking the eastern shore of World Showcase.

The pyramid which serves as entranceway to the Mexico showcase is readily identified from across the lagoon with its five-tiered sloping walls fifty steps high. Ornate Indian "stone" sculpturing makes it a work of art.

A second pyramid, weathered and wrapped with jungle vines, overlooks the waterside restaurant and plaza of a typical Mexican pueblo inside the pavilion.

In the center of the plaza is Fuente de la Vida (the fountain of life), whose bubbling-water sounds mingle with the music of mariachis wandering from shop to shop.

Since the setting is contained within an 85,000-square-foot show building, the romantic moonlit effect is maintained day and night.

Just inside the pavilion, visitors see a rare display of hand-crafted Oaxacan wood sculptures.

Specially designed costumes are worn by the Mexican-American and Mexican-born hosts and hostesses who represent the Mexican nation in order to present an authentic appearance.

Tips & Fun Facts

The Three Caballeros - Donald Duck, Jose Carioca & Panchito, meet and greet guests at various times throughout the day outside the pavilion.
The bustling marketplace area inside the pavilion can be quite tricky to navigate through for guests in wheelchairs/ECV's.

The formal portico, just past the Gallery inside the pavilion, is modeled after a mayor's mansion.
The pyramid is styled after Mesoamerican architecture that dates back nearly 1,800 years.
Imagineers designed the approach to the pyramid with the lushly planted, parrot-dotted walkway on your extreme right; the idea is that you're hacking your way through the rainforest with a machete, and you stumble across a ruin.

Hidden Mickeys

Pay close attention to the smoke which rises from the volcano.
