Mexicans, we are famous around the world because we know how to party. Yes, we love FIESTA and we know how to turn a simple Friday night-out into a whole weekend of wild fun.
This blog is a little guide to help you understand the crazy behavior of the Mexican partyholics you will party with this summer in Cancun.
- Days and time for FIESTA
For mexicans ALL DAYS are good to ‘parrandear’ (celebrate) till sun light. Let me tell you that in Cancun the weekend officially begins on Thursdays with Dady’O’s Bikini Bash and ends… Well I am not sure when it ends, my last weekend in Cancun ended on a Tuesday, but in Playa del Carmen.
The Mexican lateness –just speaking of party-, has a really good excuse called ‘precopeo’. Before the main party of the night, we make a pre-party just to drink some cocktails or beers, this way we arrive to the party in the right mood. Unfortunately, this little pre-party makes us arrive about 100 minutes late. But, I think it is clear now that this is not our fault; it’s a preparation for the party!
- Can I get a better deal?
Mexicans are born with a surprising haggling capability. The question ‘How much is the least?’ spits out our mouth unavoidably and once pronounced we won’t stop until we get a better deal. Talking about deals, check out this offer for Mexicans (just Mexicans) and this special Open Bar Offer for $20 USD (not exclusive for Mexicans).
But a Mexican is not cheap, you must know there isn’t a more generous soul than a Mexican’s… Just some tequila shots and we are ready to spend our month’s check by inviting one, two or three bottles to toast with our ‘compadres’.
- Please, don’t stop the party!
From the creators of the pre-party –Mexican people-, now get ready for the after party! An after party is another reunion to drink the last drink –or bottle or bottles- and it’s the perfect excuse to continue partying. The venue could be another nightclub or a house or even the beach and it’s possible that in one night –or morning- you will be part of several after parties.
- The End
If there is a signal to know when a Mexican finally gets enough FIESTA, is when he/she says: ‘Vamos por unos tacos‘ (let´s get some tacos). This signal appears between one after party and another or Monday morning when it’s time to school/to work and we need to interrupt the weekend.
If you are a Mexican reader, for sure you can identify with each point of this blog, if you are not Mexican, it is time to get a Mexican compadre and learn from him how to party!
