1. Mexican food’s all about tacos.
Although Mexico’s traditional kitchen is heavily based on corn, not everything in the country is tortilla-related. The culinary diversity of Mexico is huge, and there are local specialties in every single region — and sometimes in every single town. You could go all around Mexico surviving on tortilla chips, tamales, and chilaquiles, or dig a little deeper into the local specialities. Try some Mayan cuisine in Yucatán with a lima soup (it’s not lime soup or lemon soup, it’s lima soup), get a hold of one of Ensenada’s famous fish tacos or dare confronting the classic super-spicy pork sandwich from Guadalajara: the torta ahogada. If there are options for every single kind of Mexican out there, there surely is an option for you.
