Food is an essential aspect of Mexican culture and identity, as it plays a major role in everyday life, social occasions, business events and all celebrations. The cuisine in this country is a fusion of Mesoamerican cooking with Spanish elements.

Because of the variance in geography, climate and ethnicity, food in Mexico may vary from one region to another.

For many, moving to Mexico can seem intimidating. But despite new reports about drug-related crime and drug cartels at war with each other, there are those who still choose to live there for the purposes of either work or retirement.
