Mexico Travel Guide


Even though it's only a short journey from Canada to Mexico, you should expect a "Alice in Wonderland" style experience. There is no end to what Mexico has to offer, from the crystal-clear waters of the Pacific and Caribbean oceans to the historic structures constructed thousands of years ago. After a day of diving or sunbathing, Mexico is a country full with riches, including museums, breathtaking marine life, and local markets where you may indulge.

If you want to get the most out of your trip, be ready to feel overwhelmed and attempt to keep up. The possibilities for experiences and learning when visiting Mexico are virtually endless!

Before Travelling to Mexico


Experiencing Mexico

What to bring

One of the best things about Mexico is that, if it isn't winter in Canada, you can almost travel there in a pair of shorts and sandals. Whatever you decide to bring, make sure it's lightweight clothing since once you get to Mexico, you won't know what long sleeves are for.

Food & Drinks

Because each town has its unique culinary traditions, Mexican cuisine varies greatly between regions. How could someone dislike diversity? particularly when it comes to eating! The list of delectable foods and beverages is virtually vast, so we can only describe a small portion of them.


Carne Adobada: Meat or chicken that has been marinated or coated in a fiery adobo sauce or paste from Mexico. A Mexican marinade, sauce, or flavouring is called adobo.

Chilaquiles are toasted tortillas topped with shredded chicken, green or red salsa, and a little crema (similar to sour cream).

Gorditas: A gordita is a little corn-flour cake that can be filled with cheese, meat, or other ingredients. Spanish for "small fat one," gordita.

Tacos: Authentic Mexican tacos are filled with meat, chicken, or seafood and served with a variety of hot salsas on soft corn tortillas that are frequently manufactured in Mexico.


Drink a margarita by mixing equal parts tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice over ice in a salt-rimmed glass. This traditional recipe keeps faithful to the original. (A small amount of simple syrup increases the sweetness.) The Michelada is a popular beverage in Northern Mexico that is made by squeezing lime into beer. With chilli powder, Tabasco sauce, and Worcestershire sauce, try this unusually spicy twist.

Horchata: Produced in many regions of Latin America and Spain, horchata is a milky beverage made from grains. With rice as the foundation, Ingrid Hoffman prepares hers in a Mexican way. Cinnamon and vanilla both contribute sweet, fragrant flavours.


Mexico has everything you need, including souvenirs for friends and family. More than just tequila bottles and mariachi sombreros are available as souvenirs.
