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.
Chichen Itza (photos), pronounced chee–chen eat-sah, is the best known and arguably best restored of the Yucatan Maya sites. Since it was included in the list of the new seven wonders of the world, everybody wants to have a look and busloads of tourists are brought in daily. We chose to book a room in the small town of Piste which is just to the west of the entrance to Chichen Itza. This allowed us to walk the mile or so to and from the site.
