Does Mexico have a large rain forest?

    Mexico does indeed have a significant amount of rainforest – though, as in most tropical countries, the nation’s forest cover is reduced from what it was before the arrival of Europeans. The rainforests of Mexico are the northernmost tropical forests in the Western Hemisphere, and contain a large amount of biodiversity. Put together with the adjacent rainforest in the Belize and Guatemala, the forests of southern Mexico make up the largest mass of tropical rainforest in the Americas north of the Amazon Basin. Similar to many other rainforested areas in the Central and South America, the main threats to Mexico’s forests include cattle ranching, agriculture, and illegal logging.
