Traveling to Mexico. Things to know

Mexico is a great place to travel to. A country with a completely different culture, but that is interesting and not expensive at all. However, there are a couple of things that you should know when you are traveling to Mexico. Things that you might get you into trouble if you don’t know this beforehand. With knowing and remembering these, you will have a great holiday.

Be careful when crossing the street

You need to make sure that you are safe when crossing the street in Mexico. You will not see this happening often. And, with good reason.

Mexican drivers don’t feel anything for pedestrians that are crossing the street. You should look out for them and make sure that you aren’t getting run over by a car or even by more than one car at the same time. If you really need to cross the street, you should make sure that you are safe and always looking for traffic. Or, else you won’t make the other side of the road. All it takes is one incident to end up like my friend who has no legs. He works online for now since he cant use his legs.

Drinking tap water is a serious health hazard

If you think that you will save money by drinking tap water, then you are going to make a big mistake. Mexico is known for the country with the filthiest and unhealthy water. Meaning that you can really get seriously sick if you are drinking water directly from the tap.

You should always purchase bottled water. Even for drinking tea or coffee, or even for preparing food. Leave the tap water to those that have the stomach for it.

True Mexican food is really delicious

When most of us think about Mexican food, we think about the food that is hot and always burning. However, this isn’t real Mexican food. We are talking about the food that is getting eaten in every household in Mexico.

If you want to make sure that you are trying real Mexican food, you should eat in the local’s restaurants. Not the restaurants that are serving for tourists. Mexico can be a great country to live in. However, then you need to make sure that you know as much about the country as possible. Especially if you want to stay alive with the water and with crossing the street. With keeping these tips in mind, you will have a great time in Mexico and will new things about this country that you will never learn in any other way. Especially with the bad publicity that Mexico is getting on social media.
