We thought it would be fun to review some of our favorite street foods we encountered in our recent trip to Mexico. You have to start with the ubiquitous fruit and juice carts. They will generally have a variety of cut fruits like mango, watermelon, papaya, pineapple, jicama and sometimes cucumber. Of course, you can have a little salt and chili powder sprinkled on top with a good squeeze of lime. The cart in the photo was located just outside of the main market in Guadalajara. It’s a daily treat.
We didn’t really do very much in Campeche (photos). Campeche state lies in the western side of the Yucatan and is the least visited part of this region. It is home to vast tangles of jungle and the Yucatan’s lesser known Mayan ruins. The city of Campeche has been painstakingly restored in a full range of pastel colors. It lies along the Gulf of Mexico with a mostly western facing coastline.
