15 Rookie Mistakes To Avoid When Traveling In Mexico

When in Rome, do as the Romans do. –Saint Ambrose

Story by Jim Foreman
We’ve all been there. We’ve all made that first trip to Mexico, as green as a cucumber.

What’s more, everyone, it seems, from the news, family, and friends will try to impart some conventional wisdom. The problem is that these same people offering their advice have either never been to Mexico or went so long ago, the memories are grossly embellished.
