And this is where this post gets even crazier. A Michelada is a beer cocktail made with lager beer, lime, salt, tomato juice, clam juice, hot sauces or chilly slices, but you can add also Chamoy powder, serrano peppers or slices of orange and some other ingredients depending on where you are in Mexico.  So we can say that this is a drink, meal, and dessert at the same time, of course, this is not for everybody but it’s worth a try!

And of course, if you want to be a real Mexican add some lemon on it.



4. A real passion for Lucha Libre or Free Fight.

Also, you can find in every touristic shop the colorful masks to take home.




We can’t wait to keep living new experiences in this great country and learning more about Mexican culture!
