September is here and with it the streets in the entire country are decorated in red, white and green, a festive atmosphere invades us with flags, pinwheels and mariachi music everywhere. Contrary to common believe among foreigners, Mexican Independence is not celebrated on 5 de Mayo, but on September 16th. Celebration begins the night of the 15th, when “El Grito“ takes place, when the popular clamor of “¡Viva Mexico!“ is shout and that represents the beginning of the independence war.

Nowadays, the celebration takes place during the entire month, which we are glad for, allowing us to pay tribute to this great country while enjoying traditional culinary delicacies, the best tequila, passionate mariachi music, cheerful folklore dances and much more that Mexico has to offer.
