Culture Smart! Mexico introduces you to the complex realities of modern Mexican life. It describes how history has shaped Mexicans’ values and attitudes, and reveals what they are like at home, work, and play. The chapter on customs and traditions gives a flavor of religious and public life, while those on meeting people and “time out” will help you to make the most of your visit. Mexicans value human contact highly—the more effort you make to meet and understand people, the more you will enjoy your stay.
