No list for Mexico would EVER be complete without tacos. It's number one on the list and rightly so. Tacos are a staple in Mexico and you can find it on almost every street corner, and you'll probably find several vendors vying for your business. Also luckily for you gluten-free-ers, most stands and shops use corn tortillas. And even more lucky for all of us foodies, most stands hand make their corn tortillas daily and sometimes on the spot. Don't miss these mouth watering treats.
Alcohol Bonus - Tequila
All good stories begin with tequila. And great stories when you enjoy tequila in Mexico. Thank goodness tequila is made from agave plant, making it gluten free. It's my go to liquor of choice as a Celiac, and definitely my go to liquor of choice when in Mexico. If you can afford it and want to really enjoy, try Don Julio 1942 a premium tequila that has no burn. When I drink those, I don't get a hangover, even if I have 5 shots the night before.
Important Travel Tip
Do NOT drink water unless it's a sealed water bottle! Water from the tap is VERY questionable and can cause major stomach issues. Ensure that the sealed cap on the water bottles has not been tampered with. Some people will take empty water bottles, fill it up with water from the tap, "seal" it, then sell it to tourists to make a buck. Also remember ice can be contaminated if the ice machine is hooked up to tap water without filters. Be vigilant when served drinks with ice as well. When in doubt, don't drink it.
