What to do in Mexico?
Discover the cultural richness of Mexico on a trip

A fascinating country in North America, Mexico attracts many  tourists thanks to its breathtaking landscapes, paradisiacal beaches and historical monuments. This region is also known for its rich and diverse culture, which it expresses for the most part through dance. You should know that at each holiday, Mexicans preserve with great respect the different traditions that have been passed down from their ancestors. During their stay in Mexico, tourists will visit Mexico City, the land of the Aztecs. Note that this people, one of the first inhabitants of Mexican territory, prayed to their gods in choreographic circles. He is renowned for his amazingly colorful costumes and pheasant feather headdress. While strolling through the emblematic places of the Mexican capital, backpackers are sure to admire Mexicans performing the Aztec dance. There is also the Quetzales dance that globetrotters will spot in the Puebla region.

Taste some Mexican culinary specialties

Staying in Mexico is an opportunity to savor some of the country’s culinary specialties. Rich and diverse, Mexican cuisine stems from African, Caribbean and Asian influences. The result is dishes that are as delicious as each other. Note that corn and other foods such as beans, avocado, tomato and chili are the staple foods in Mexico’s cuisine. During their trip on Mexican territory, backpackers will taste, among other things, the taco, a pancake prepared with corn (tortilla). This dish is often garnished with meat, sauce, onion and chopped fresh cilantro. There is also the quesadilla, made from tortillas and melted cheese. Quesadillas are usually simmered on a heated plate. In order not to miss anything on their trip to Mexico, globetrotters will appreciate the taste of tamal. The latter, steamed, is placed in corn husks. It is made from corn flour dough.

Discovering Mexican Music

Besides its cuisine, Mexico is distinguished from other North American countries by its musical style. Backpackers will admire Norteña music during their stays in Mexico. Typical of northern Mexico, this genre of music typically uses instruments such as the accordion, bajo sexto (a large six-string guitar), and the taloche. It combines both hilarious and tonic rhythm, resembling the polka (dance originating in Bohemia). There is also ranchera music which appeared around the middle of the 19th century. The rancheros (ranch workers) sing it to express their passion, fury, sensuality and agony. During their trip to Mexico, vacationers will also discover the worstkua. It is a traditional Tarascan song, notably performed by the Native American people “Purépechas”. Note that the worstkua was inscribed on the UNESCO list of intangible heritage of humanity on November 16, 2010.
