Be sure to take your tastebuds on a journey through the flavors and aromas of Mexico. Beans and also pork are widely used ingredients in meals in this part of the world. Esquites (mexican corn salad) and tamales are much-loved dishes to taste. To complete your typical local dining experience, try arroz con leche (rice with milk). You may see locals and tourists alike drinking Dos Equis; it's one of the most typical brews in Mexico. Some travelers don't consider a meal is complete until they've tasted a glass or two of regional wine. Sample sauvignon blanc or viognier. To wrap up your meal like the locals do, ask for a little tejuino and relax after a long day of sightseeing. Have a taste of one of the most common drinks in the region, namely café de olla (cinnamon coffee).
As your time here draws to an end, spend what's left of your Mexican pesos on last-minute mementos and bid a fond Adiós (farewell) to the friends you've made and the places you've come to love.
