On February 2nd, Mexicans celebrate Candlemas and there’s a very interesting tradition that goes with this special holiday!
Niño Dios as an angel
The holiday season in Mexico is known as Lupe-Reyes, referring to a nearly month-long period that begins on the feast day of the Virgin of Guadalupe, patron saint of Mexico, on December 12 and Three King’s Day (Epiphany) on January 6.

There’s no reason for a competent and experienced driver to be intimidated by driving in Mexico. In fact, driving around the country is an excellent option, especially with low prices for rental cars and an abundance of out-of-the-way destinations like colonial towns, national parks, and virgin beaches.
Sure, things are a little different here, but like anything else unfamiliar in Mexico, the main thing you need is patience. And a few tips.
To Drive or Not?
Your budget is the first factor to consider for whether you drive in Mexico or not. Right now, all over the world, renting a car is super cheap, as low as 10 dollars a day.
