Food

Mexican gastronomy is very special, it varies from one region to another and depends on the basic foods that are harvested in its lands.

It has been influenced in various ways by the conquistadors, the climate, and the changing geography; this has played an important role in the selection of the country’s tradition.

Mexico is known for its corn, tomatoes, chocolate, spices, avocados, beans, papaya, vanilla, and chiles; and the way these foods are used reflects the true traditional dishes of each territory.

Buen provecho!
