What do Spaniards think of Mexican food

The most important words for a trip to Mexico

Contact local travel agency

Spanish is spoken in MexicoHowever, this is colonial Spanish, which is a bit different from the language spoken in Spain today.

Remember to pronounce each letter!

Many old words and expressions have survived in Mexican Spanish that are no longer used in Spain. For example, "carro" is used for "car", whereas in Spain one would say "coche". Furthermore, if you compare them with the Spaniards, the Mexicans easier to understand. In fact, I noticed very quickly that the latter speak relatively slowly and articulate the words well; ideal for improving your Spanish!

Be that as it may, don't worry: Mexicans are always very hospitable and patient. With a smile and a few gestures, you will always be able to make yourself understood, even if German and Spanish do not have very many points of contact in the vocabulary.

I would like to quickly give you a few words and phrases that can be useful when you are in Mexico. Remember to pronounce each letter!
