Yucatan tour: Live as a local

I start my travel blog with one of my favourite countries that i love to visit as much as possible: Mexico. Since this moment i travel there two times, visiting the Yucatan peninsula, including Riviera Maya that is the most touristic place. But i like to visit the real Mexico: mayan ruins, colonial churchs, mangroves and walk into his villages to see how is the real mexican culture.

In this way, i try to make contacts before and during my travels, helping me to visit amazing places that usual tourist dont even know that exists or that can look dangerous for a casual tourist. As my main language is spanish, its not a problem to have real cool conversations with local people and move in public transport or even travel with them making new friends.

During my last trip in May, i stay in a small house the most of the days in Merida (Yucatan). It was easy to find a “taqueria” the first day close to my home. I visit the same every day, making new friends that suggest me new places to visit and give me a tasty local food for a real cheap money. Local food can be amazing, but you must be careful if you dont like spices 🙂

For a tourist, you must be carefull to be careful in shops or touristic places, but in the street local people will give you always the best advices to find good restaurants or bars. Even in touristic places as Isla Contoy, you can easy find local places, just look where local people is having dinner!

If you have an apartment, dont be affraid to visit local markets to buy food. Supermarkets will have usual products, but if you want to taste real mexican food…let them to advice you what is fresh. Even if you stay in a hotel, they can suggest you where to eat good food close to the market 😉

Walking around the main streets is a bit crazy some moments, shorts sidewalks full of people every hour. But there you can see how people is living. Buy some drinks or foods in the street being careful, its more special than drink a cocktail in a resort where you not see the local life.
