Some Facts about Mexico

Mexico is often considered to be either a beach resort destination or a wonderland for drug lords. However, the majority of people don’t know the truth about Mexico, its culture and people. Their opinion is based on stereotypes and therefore they’re scared to go to Mexico. Below are some facts about Mexico – a country that I definitely recommend to both: visit and live in.


Mexico’s real name is: United Mexican States
Mexico is divided into 31 states, plus the Federal District. Each state has its own law regulations and police, similar to how it works in the United States of America. When staying in a different state your phone is practically in roaming.


Mexican food abroad is not actually Mexican
Everyone seems to love Mexican food, that recently has been classified an irreplaceable cultural heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. Although… outside of Mexico people tend not to consume the real Mexican food, but Tex-Mex. In Mexico no one actually eats burritos Chipotle style (in northern Mexico burritos are popular, however we refer to burritos from the US fast food chains), filled with rice. Moreover, most Mexican food is not spicy hot – it’s actually sour due to the amount of limes on everything (in Mexican simply called lemons). Spicy salsas are served on the side.


Mexicans don’t always have darker skin
Assuming that all Mexicans have dark skin and black hair is a huge mistake, because not ALL Mexicans are darker. There are plenty of Mexicans that are as white as Eastern Europeans. Moreover, especially in big cities such as Mexico City where there exists a huge Jewish community and others with European heritage and therefore those people have white skin tone too.


Mexico geographically is in North America

People usually think since Mexico is a part of Latin America it belongs to South America or Central America. Mexico is a part of North America, along with the USA and Canada.
