Mexico is a wonderful place. There are a lot of great places for a traveler to visit. The place is lively and full of people on the streets walking or selling toys, food, fruit, and many more. Today I am going to talk about the top 3 places a tourist should go visit in Mexico.

First stop is Puebla. Puebla is a big place with lots of restaurants and stores. Puebla is famous for the bell towers of Puebla's Cathedral, which is the tallest. It is also famous for two types of food. Mole, is one of them. It is not a mole, like the animal, the sound is similar to when you say "Ole" but adding an m. Mole is made of chili peppers and some vegetables such as tomatoes, garlic, sesame seeds, and others more to get in the flavor. It also includes chocolate which is used to counteract the spice in the chili peppers. The second one is a cemita. It's like a hamburger or a sandwich, but slightly bigger in shape. The top bread is covered in sesame seeds. Next are the ingredients, sliced avocado, meat, white cheese, onions, a type of herb called papalo, and you can add red sause or green sauce in it as well.

Next stop is Oaxaca. Oaxaca is a big place and is similar to puebla, full of people, restaurants, and people selling on the streets. It is famous for its indigenous people and cultures.

Two of their main dishes are, Pozole. Pozole is a type of soup, it has pork or meat, garlic or cut up onions with a little bit of kernels. It is popular in all of Mexico but I recommend tasting the one in Oaxaca. Next are tacos. Tacos are made up of a small tortilla and inside you add meat, cut up onions, sprinkle it with lemon, and other toppings of your choice. They are also popular in Mexico but I recommend tasting them in Oaxaca.

Last but not least, Los Cabos. Los Cabos is very different from the two places we talked about. It has lots of restaurants and is a beautiful place because it is next to the beach. Lots of people love the scenery of the sunset and the ocean veiw from their homes or hotel. It is famous for its beaches, location for scuba diving, and marine life.

Since the place is near the ocean, one type of food that they give out often is sea food, for example, cooked crab, lobster, shrimps dipped in sauce, sushi, and more. Another type of food is that the sea food will be mixed with meat, coocke vegetables, and sometimes rice or salad.
