When you are in Mexico do not get alarmed if a local stares at you. In Mexico it is acceptable for folks to hold a gaze longer than usual. So don’t start a fight just because of staring, its perfectly fine here to do so.

3) Hair Gel

Hair gel is the favourite hair grooming product of the Mexican people. Boys will apply copious amount of gel to their head to make sure all is in place, whereas, as for the girls the Mexican ponytail is quite famous, where not one strand escapes from the hairdo.

2) PDA

The Mexicans are surprisingly liberal in their display of affection towards their loved ones. The public parks are all full of couples making-out in complete public view. Sometimes it is hard to ignore a couple when you are stuck behind them in a bus or something but the lovers just don’t care.

4) Lateness

Time in Mexico is flexible, if you are meeting a friend who is Mexican expect him to be late as they do not show up on time unless it is an important matter such as a bullfight or a football match.

5) Traffic

The traffic is simply vicious here. From skipping the red signal to continuously beeping the horn things go on and on. If you are a pedestrian crossing the road at a red signal can be tricky as the vehicles do not pay much attention to it.
