Mexico!!!…..yeah ok it was at Epcot!

So it’s no SURPRISE…I Love Mexico! I try to get there at least once a year weather its to a resort or at least a stopover on a cruise.

I just find that the country has the friendliest and most hospitable people! I have never had a bad trip there! so yes of course I have to get my fix every now and then and stop in at Epcot!

The Mexico pavilion resembles a Mesoamerican pyramid. The nightly fireworks show “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” is controlled from a small office atop the building. The office’s window is barely visible from street level, but can be seen at an angle.

Visitors enter through a display of Mexican artwork. The main room is the home to a twilight-lit Mexican marketplace, Plaza de los Amigos. At the edge of the plaza, a restaurant, San Ángel Inn, overlooks an indoor lagoon. To the side of the plaza, a boarding area leads to a boat ride, Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros.

I also must mention a pit stop along the way….

…and the shopping! (yes, it is all made in Mexico)

When you walk into the Mexican Pavilion it looks as if you are walking into a small Mexican village, complete with “outdoor” shopping. You can buy traditional Mexican souvenirs from marble mules, lace off the shoulder dresses, ponchos and sombreros.

So if you haven’t been..GO! The ambiance is an experience all in itself!
