Are you planning a trip to Mexico? Do you want to get a feel for what it is truly like to live there? If this interests you, visit some of the places that let you experience the real Mexico. Watching the people go by gives you great insight into their daily lives.

Town Squares

Every town has a plaza or park where the people gather. Sit on a bench there and watch life. Enjoy a snack while you watch. These town squares are the very heart of Mexican culture. Every single one will be different. Everyone will offer you sights you cannot see anywhere else.

Alameda in Mexico City has a shadowy past, but today it is bright with color, young lovers, and great food. The Jardin plaza in San Miguel de Allende is a gathering place for artists of all kinds. You can watch them paint and sketch daily life.

Look! Up in the Sky!

Fireworks are very popular in Mexico. They put on a grand show for every festival. The most lavish displays are the castillos, while the wildest ones are the toros, where men run through the streets carrying fireworks over their shoulders.


Mexico is rich in music. Mariachi is popular in Mexico City and Guadalajara. Romantic songs sung by boleros will soothe the wildest heart. In the tropical regions, you may hear a lot of "musica tropical" made up of cha-chas and mambos.

Along with music, Mexicans love dancing. From folk dancing to ballet, you can enjoy it all while you are in Mexico. Some places, like Merida, have park dances almost every night for everyone to enjoy. You cannot help but marvel at the colorful displays you will see. If you happen across a festival, you are really in for a treat. The colorful traditional costumes will be a feast for the eyes just as the music is a feast for the ears.

On the Coast

In the towns along the coast, you will see big sidewalks following the roads that skirt the beaches. These areas are full of delicious foods, local wares, and entertainment. If you visit Mazatlan, Cozumel, Veracruz, Puerto Vallarta or La Paz, be sure to take a stroll along these wondrous places of Mexican culture. In addition, do not forget to try some seafood!

Good Eating

While we are on the subject of food, you cannot find more flavorful or colorful food than the authentic Mexican recipes you will find during your travels. Chicken, beef, pork, and seafood are all cooked with great artistry. Experiment and try something new. Fresh food is the order of the day when you are in Mexico. Eat everywhere and try the native cuisine the way it is meant to be prepared. Your whole concept of what Mexican food is will be forever altered.

Make the most of your travels in Mexico. Really, immerse yourself in the culture. You will not only learn about Mexico, you will learn a lot about yourself. Take the time to understand the people you meet. We may be different on the outside, but deep down we are all the same. Open your horizons to this amazing culture next door. You will not ever be the same.
