Mexico

¡Hola! Come and learn about Mexican culture as no tourist can. Discover how the Aztec, Mayan, and Olmec civilizations, along with Spanish influences, form the roots of today’s modern Mexican society.

“Every Friday we go toout and we meet a lot of familiar people. It is not hard at all to blend in with the locals in Mexico! Mexican people are very open, friendly and known for their hospitality. They will always try to help you.”

More about Mexico

During your exchange, you will witness firsthand many of Mexico’s religious and secular festivities, such as Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). While the setting of a cemetery may seem mournful, this holiday is actually a joyful celebration! In fact, you’ll find that vendors throughout the country sell candy and sweets in the form of human skeletons and skulls to mark the holiday.

Family life is very important to Mexican culture. Being invited into a Mexican home is a great honor, as the warmth and hospitality of the Mexican people are recognized and celebrated around the world. Mexican cuisine is renowned for the spices, as well as the colorful decorations and variety of delicious flavors – chilaquiles, pozoles, and tostadas are some of the few delicious foods you might try when you study abroad in Mexico!
