Thanks!

Greenland: Greenland has a cold climate that usually doesn't go past 10 degrees Celsius. It is very similar to the climate in the Arctic.
Famous Landmark: Qaasuitsup: It is the oldest church(that's still standing) in all of Greenland, for it has been around since 1775.

Mexico: In Mexico, it is unbearably hot around the coast(on both sides of the country) and it is dry in the center. It last snowed almost 49 years ago, on January 12th, 1967. I doubt the snow stayed for very long though.
Landmark: El Tajin is a coast city. It is thought to be built between the 600-900 AD. It is surrounded by a jungle.
