A Peak on the Culture of Mexico

The culture of Mexico of the present time can be traced back to the time when indigenous people inhabited areas of the country and the colonization of different nations. It has been said that history in Mexico is not just a trace of the past, but it continues up to the present. Mexico is indeed a place where past meets the present.

Here is a list of aspects of life that defines a true-blood Mexican.

Roman Catholicism

Mexicans have established their own religious affiliations even before the colonization of Spain, but since then, the country embraced Catholicism as their spiritual orientation. In fact, the Catholic Church has been one of the most powerful institutions in the life of Mexicans. On the other hand, Mexican Catholicism is considered to be syncretic. There is a mixture of traditional Catholicism and indigenous rituals, considered to be polytheistic by foreign visitors. The Mexicans hold a strong worship of the saints and the Virgin Mary. The Virgin of Guadalupe, the nation’s saint is considered to be a national emblem and as important as the Mexican Flag.

Sophisticated Culinary Culture

Cuisine is a mixture of pre-Hispanic and European influences. Corn is the staple food, and is considered sacred by the indigenous people as the Maya and the Aztecs. This food is also prepared by all means, in all possible forms.

In Mexican cooking, three ingredients stand out: hot peppers or spicy chiles, corn and beans. The most important meal for the day is served between two to four in the afternoon locally known as the comida, commonly composed of three to four courses. There are also custom foods for every ceremonial occasion in Mexico. For example, during November 2 when they celebrate the day of the dead, they consume pan de muerto or the bread of the dead. At Christmas, the common delicacies served are romeritos, bacalao, and stuffed turkey.

The Mexican Etiquette

The way how Mexicans deal with each other in daily life is strongly informed by the culture of distance and hierarchies in the society. Generally, Mexicans shake hands or kiss on the cheek when they meet. As in the case of close contacts and special occasions, they embrace each other, tap on the back and shake hands. This culture symbolizes confidentiality and the value of trust.

Strong Valuing on Eloquence

They typically began with polite and indirect approaches in conversations before coming up to the main topic. They are indirect speakers and avoid the use of clear-cut statements.

Activities to do in the Rainforest

Rainforests offers a multiplicity of innovative activities that makes the experience worth indulging. The intensity of each activity depends on the guts of an individual tourist. Usually, reasons for deciding to go on a rainforest trip is to somewhat escape the busyness of the city or probably from life’s troubles. Whatever the reason is, one thing’s sure: People from different walks, forms, and backgrounds become one in mind and in heart upon entering the wonders of the rainforest.

As mentioned, there are diverse ways to experience the rainforest. For sure, everyone of it has something to teach you during the encounter. Here are some suggested rainforest activities that you can try:

Rainforest Canopy Tours
 

Fly high through Canopy Tours

One great way to enjoy your rainforest trip is to try several canopy tours. Besides, it can be considered that soaring above the rainforest canopy is a good chance to view the environment as a whole; since you will be given a bird’s eye view of the particular rainforest you’re in. Most of tour packages are offering different canopy tours like climbing to the top of trees and travelling from one point to another either through walking suspended bridges or riding a zip line. One great benefit of wandering through the rainforest by the canopy is that it lessens the impact on the environment. Instead of damaging the rainforest floor by throwing trash or disturbing wildlife, it is better to just fly off and besides, the adventure gets even more exciting.

Go hiking at Wildlife Reserves

There are two major points of interest upon going to a rainforest tour: exotic animals and wide variety of plants that can be encounter along the way. Numerous national parks and forest reserves are offering guided hikes even to the heart of the rainforest wherein you can find high concentration of never-before-seen animals at their natural habitat. However, there are some restrictions while interacting with these creatures to avoid threatening on their part, thus, securing the safety of both sides.

Rest your exhausted bodies on Eco-lodge Accommodations

Costa Rica Rainforest Lodge Accommodation

The best part of having a rainforest trip is when you’re too tired and exhausted from all the adventures and you’ve got to take your rest again with nature. Tour packages are also involving lodge accommodations along with the rainforest adventure trips. The privilege of choosing what kind of room is of course in your hands. There are eco-lodge accommodations that are very basic and very natural; on the other hand, there are also room accommodations that feature modern amenities.

Through rainforest trips, we can get renewal of our minds on the importance of these natural wonders to us. However, let us not forget that the benefits they provide us should be paid in return through efforts of conservation that most of us tend to forget in this present time.
