About This Quiz

Why live in places like Belize, Honduras or Guatemala when you can live in a vibrant and colorful country like Mexico? There's nothing wrong with those other places, but Mexico offers something unique and special for tourists and locals alike. For starters, the cuisine is flavorful and rooted in Mexican traditions, with popular dishes like tacos de carne asada and pollo en escabeche oriental (just watch out for some of the spicy peppers and seasonings). And if that's not enough, this country is also known for beaches, canyons, mountains and several Mayan ruins and temples (some of the more famous ones are Coba and El Castillo).

But life in Mexico is more than just what tourists see on the surface. In fact, the day-to-day life centers around traffic, noisy streets and lots of air pollution. But these drawbacks don't stop the locals from throwing parties and taking day trips around the country. And these can all be done at an affordable rate, too, since the US dollar goes further in Mexico. But the question for today is: do you have what it takes to live in a country like this? If your answer is "si," then it's time to take this culture quiz now!
