Discover What´s Hot About Mexican Food by Olivia Mordsley / CHIC COLLECTION

Spice Up Your Life

Where to eat good Mexican food

Mexico is a diverse country in every sense of the word and its cuisine contains a wide range of timeless staples and regional specialities. The menu became more varied after the Spanish conquered in the 16th century, but it still retains influences from the Mayan and Aztec times. Mexican food is traditionally spicy and made from a few classic ingredients with straightforward recipes and a lot of garnish.

Street Food

The country’s capital, Mexico City, is home to half a million food stands that take in just about every part of the national diet. Many of the foods eaten here can trace their origins all the way back to the days of the Mayans and the Aztecs, in particular beans and corn which play a major role in Mexican cuisine, past and present. Corn on the cob is sold on street corners throughout the country, topped with anything from butter and salt to lime and chilli powder. Insects and plants, such as grasshoppers and cactus, that were eaten many years ago are still enjoyed today, either on their own or stuffed inside a tortilla.

Tamale is one of the most popular street foods. It consists of corn dough stuffed with filling such as zucchini and beans, chicken or pork, then wrapped in a banana leaf and steamed. Corn is one of the staple parts of the Mexican diet and historians suggest it has been present in the country’s cuisine for around 9000 years. It has important cultural significance, too, as many Mexicans believe that they are ‘the people of the corn.’

Another basic food is the mighty tortilla. Made from flour in the north and corn in the south, these can be eaten sprinkled with salt and warmed through for a classic snack or stuffed with meat for a more substantial meal. Tortillas also form the base of some of the country’s most popular dishes, such as enchiladas and tacos. Enchiladas are covered in a tomato and chilli sauce and stuffed with meat, cheese, vegetables or seafood. Often eaten at breakfast, these are a milder, healthier version of the taco – which is fried until crunchy and then filled with meat or vegetables.  Enchiladas also date back to the Mayan times when people would eat fish wrapped in corn tortilla. Chilaquiles are another tortilla-based breakfast dish that include yet another Mexican staple – salsa. These lightly fried corn tortillas are topped with salsa, eggs and pulled chicken, with plenty of cheese, sour cream and beans added for good measure.

Chillies are used liberally in many dishes and range from fairly mild to absolutely scorching. Large Poblano chillies are stuffed with cheese or spicy meat (picadillo) and served as a main meal. If you are lucky, you will be able to try a variation on the traditional Poblano chilli dish in the form of chiles en nogada, which also includes chopped fruit and spices. This a patriotic dish that boasts the three colours of the Mexican flag with the green of the chilli, the white of the cream sauce and the red of the pomegranate seeds. History suggests that this dish was first served to a former Mexican emperor.

Smaller chillies are often used to garnish and in dips such as guacamole – an extremely popular dish that dates back to the time of the Aztecs. Guacamole is also a fine example of the style of traditional cuisine as it contains just a few classic ingredients, bright colours and intense flavours. Sauces and dips play a large role in the diet, with sour cream and salsa also counted among the most popular.

Fantastic Fish

It is surprisingly easy to be vegetarian in Mexico as the diet contains a few classic dishes with a lot of flavour that don’t require meat. Quesadillas are the perfect dish for vegetarians and those who wish to avoid spices, too – these are grilled tortillas stuffed with cheese, beans and salad. Beans are most often seen in the form of frijoles, where they are boiled and refried then served as the main part of a meal or as a stuffing or side dish.

Finally, there is the country’s famous fish and seafood. Boasting hundreds of miles of coastline and deep ocean waters, Mexico is home to some of the most delicious seafood in the world. The Matlali Hotel in the Nayarit region on the Pacific coast is perfectly situated to take advantage of the delectable cuisine and beautiful beaches of western Mexico. The hotel’s Raixes restaurant is world-class and features an expansive terrace where you can enjoy the best of the local seafood. One of the most famous regional dishes is theHuachinango Saradeado – marinated red snapper grilled over coals. A really traditional experience will see the fish smoked over mangrove wood and marinated with lemon and chilli sauce, then served with tortillas. The Nayarit region is also one of the world’s best locations for shrimp, in particular the tlaxtihuilli (shrimp soup).Ceviche – raw fish marinated in lime juice – is another regional speciality that tastes divine eaten al fresco against the backdrop of the ocean panoramas. A classic grilled fish meal will be perfectly complemented by a refreshing drink, perhaps a margarita from the country that created tequila or an ice-cold beer – one of Mexico’s most famous exports.

And all that is left to say is buen provecho!

THE ART OF SLOW LIVING IN THE MEXICAN RIVIERA by CHIC COLLECTION

By 

Colour, Music and Enchantment

Mexico is a country with a thousand faces – from the beautiful beaches along the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, to the colourful towns of Oaxaca and Guadalajara and the world-famous ruins at Chichen Itzá. But it is within the small villages and indigenous communities that you will find the heart of Mexico and discover exactly what it is that makes this country so special.

The Riviera Nayarit or “The Mexican Riviera” is situated along the Pacific Coast and includes the beautiful city of Puerto Vallarta, a place that Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton once called home. The region is home to an abundance of authentic indigenous life, with many Indian villages and a prominent Huichol community. These villages are scattered along the coastline and situated close to one another, framed by the beautiful Pacific waters on one side and the dramatic Sierra Madre mountain range on the other with sugar cane fields and papaya, mango and tobacco farms tucked in between.

 

La Cruz de Huanacaxtle

Cruz-de-huanacaxtle

 

Named “the enchanted towns” by the Mexican Tourism Department, these villages embody everything that is authentic about Mexico in a region where the views are as lively, bright and full of life as the inhabitants. La Cruz de Huanacaxtle is a colourful and vibrant village located around 25 kilometres outside of Puerto Vallarta. As you wander the maze of cobbled streets that make up this charming fishing village, the smell of tortillas fills the air and mingles with the exotic notes emanating from the instruments played by the many street musicians. The Huichol people are notoriously reclusive but if you listen carefully, you will hear the magic of their language from those who come to La Cruz de Huanacaxtle to sell their crafts. Their artistic talent and craftsmanship are astounding and their brightly coloured clothing, handicrafts and jewellery are easy to find in villages across the region, either on market stalls or hanging in art galleries. La Cruz de Huanacaxtle is also home to the largest marina in Central America, making it a popular anchorage spot for passing sailors. It is especially vibrant when the fish and farmers’ markets are taking place, where you can mingle with the locals and sample the fresh catch of the day.

 

Where to Stay

?????????????

 

The Matlali Hotel brings the authentic Mexican ambience into a five-star luxury accommodation, surrounded by immense natural beauty and seemingly endless golden beaches. Its contemporary design rests beautifully against the tropical scenery while the onsite spa includes outdoor treatment rooms with a focus on indigenous traditional healing and rituals. The delectable seafood dishes in the restaurant are excellent examples of why the Riviera is a seafood lovers’ paradise.

Caught by the “Catch of the day”

La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, a fishing town in Riviera Nayarit

La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, a fishing town in Riviera Nayarit

Cruz de Huanacaxtle or La Cruz, as known by the people who live there, is a small fishing town located in Bahía de Banderas village, bathed in the beautiful sea of Riviera Nayarit.

If you are so curious about the meaning of its name that you cannot sleep at nights, relax! The name of Cruz de Huanacaxtle is told to come from an old wooden cross in the town’s entrance made with branches of the Huanacaxtle Tree. The other version says that it is because of a cross-shaped Huanacaxtle Tree at town’s entrance. You better come and find out which of them is the right one.

The weather in Cruz de Huanacaxtle is a little bit cooler than the rest of Riviera Nayarit beaches. That is why Cruz de Huanacaxtle town and La Manzanilla, one of the visitors favorite beaches, are one of the best choises for people who like a milder weather.

Besides, Cruz de Huanacaxtle has a wide range of excinting activities to do such as snorkeling, diving and surf. It has a Huichol art gallery, restaurants and coffee shops. You can also find Boutique hotels as the Matlali Hotel and its Eva Mandarina Beach Club, where their experts in Mixology serve the best cocktails in all Riviera Nayarit.

The vast vegetation and the singing birds that wake you up in the morning are two of the biggest attractions, but seeing the town fishermen setting sail at dawn and coming back with the “cacth of the day” in their boats is one of most excinting. The catch of the day is usually served fresh and cooked according to the customer taste in places like Restaurante Raixes in Matlali Hotel.

With live music, embroidery crafts, pottery art, delicious food, exotic drinks and great people, Cruz de Huanacaxtle is a privileged destination with privileges of its own waiting for you in the living calm of Riviera Nayarit.

La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, pueblo de pescadores en Riviera Nayarit

Cruz de Huanacaxtle o simplemente La Cruz, como la conocen sus pobladores, es un pequeño pueblo pesquero situado en el municipio de Bahía de Banderas y bañado por las aguas de la bellamente inigualable Riviera Nayarit.

   Si la curiosidad por el origen de su nombre no te deja dormir, el topónimo Cruz de Huanacaxtle surge, según cuentan, a raíz de una cruz hecha con madera de árbol de Huanacaxtle puesta justo a la entrada del pueblo. Otra versión, que sería mejor venir a comprobar, dice que es a causa de un árbol de Huanacaxtle en forma de cruz a la entrada del pueblo.

   El clima de Cruz de Huanacaxtle es un poco más frío en comparación con el resto de las playas en la Riviera Nayarit. Esto convierte al pueblo y a La Manzanilla, una de sus playas favoritas, en una muy buena opción para viajeros que gustan de un clima más templado.

   Además, Cruz de Huanacaxtle cuenta con una amplia gama de actividades recreativas como esnorqueleo, buceo y surf. Una galería de arte huichol, restaurantes y cafés. Así como hoteles boutique tales como Matlali Hotel, que cuenta además con el Club de Playa Eva Mandarina donde sus baristas expertos en Mixología preparan y sirven los mejores cocteles de toda la Riviera Nayarit.

    La abundante vegetación de Cruz de Huanacaxtle y el despertar con el canto de las aves por las mañanas es uno de sus grandes atractivos, pero uno de los más importantes es sin duda el espectáculo de los pescadores zarpando al amanecer en sus barcas o botes y regresando con la pesca del día, misma que se sirve fresca y al gusto y exigencia de cada paladar en lugares como Restaurante Raixes, en Matlali Hotel.

   Entre música en vivo, artesanías bordadas, cerámica, buena comida, exóticos tragos y gente de gran calidad humana, Cruz de Huanacaxtle es un destino privilegiado y con privilegios que esperan por ti en la viva quietud de Riviera Nayarit.
