When Night Falls in Mexico
For party animals and night owls, Mexico holidays in 2014 are the place to be. Here are some hints and tips to make sure that you have the best nights during your Mexican visit!
Hit the holiday towns and resorts
Ideal for the first-time visitor, holiday resorts are a great introduction to this rich and varied country, as you’ll sample the local culture while mingling with fellow travelers.
This is often where people head to party and sunbathe during their spring break, and there are festivals which people flock to visit all year round. When you’re not partying, take advantage of the beautiful beaches to sleep off a fuzzy head, and water sports and marine life for daytime entertainment.
Fill up on Mexican food
No trip to Mexico is complete without sampling the local dishes and specialities. Make sure you try some of these.
Tacos al pastor: dating back to the 1920s, these tacos contain thin strips of roasted pork with onion, coriander and pineapple.
Chiles en nogada: a red, white and green dish to represent the Mexican flag, this dish is made with chillies, meats, spices, and cream sauce to create a patriotic and tasty meal.
Elote: available on nearly every street corner in Mexico, this is a simple snack of corn on the cob, with tasty toppings and seasoning.
Tamales: a great food to eat on the go, these pockets of corn dough are stuffed with either sweet or savoury filling and wrapped in banana leaves.
