Mouth-watering Mexico from £9 per night

From tacos and fajitas to chocolate - Mexican food is diverse, delicious and even recognised by UNESCO! The organisation declared traditional Mexican cuisine as part of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity and gave special mention to the Michoacan state for its culinary practices.
