It’s no secret that Mexico is a well-known country all around the world. But what is it about Mexico that makes it such a special, warm, colorful, and fun destination? Here at Azul Mejicano, we believe that the richness of this country lies beneath its culture. And today, we want to enlist some of the treasures that make Mexico one of a kind. If you wish to show your love for our country uniquely, here we tell you how…
Without fear of being wrong, we believe that the most beautiful scenery is in Mexico. Our country has it all: the turquoise oceans, the mystical forests, and the amazing deserts. People from all around the globe travel to witness things like the Barrancas del Cobre, the Cabo’s whales, and the Oaxacan Rocky Mountains. The best way to show your love for Mexico is to honor and take care of the natural scenery, respect the flora and fauna, and support local families taking their tours and not the commercial massive ones.
The great thing about Mexico is that each state has its special dish. In the north, you can try “carne asada tacos”, while in the south, tlayudas with crickets. No matter what kind of corn dish you try, we guarantee you will be amazed by the flavor. A great way to show love for Mexican food is by going to the local markets and purchasing endemic, organic, fair products.
Mexico has dozens of artisanal crafts that have been passed from generation to generation, especially in indigenous communities. In Oaxaca, the palm-weaving art is incredible. People cut the palm leaves and then dry them in order to get the characteristic beige color. Then they boil them, so they can be soft to braid. Finally, they create great pieces like hats, rugs, or palm bags, like the ones we have at Azul Mejicano. If you really want to honor this tradition, you ought to buy from the locals without ever bargaining.
Regardless of which state, city, or town you visit in Mexico, you will likely encounter different traditions like regional music, beautiful dances, festivals, and ceremonies. For example, Día de Muertos is close and Mexico celebrates it by honoring their beloved deceased with flowers, altars, and rituals. To show love, you should only respect the traditions and always ask before taking any pictures or actively participating.
We can’t talk about Mexican treasures without mentioning their beautiful people. All around the country you will meet warm, welcoming, authentic people that won’t hesitate to help you. A way to show love for these people is by helping them with charity, since there are a lot of vulnerable groups in the country. At our checkout, you can donate a little extra to help Oaxacan women and their families.
Thanks for loving Mexico as much as we do!
