Win a Culinary Trip to Mexico Courtesy of AFAR

I’ve been fantasizing about a trip to Mexico– you know, taking in the Mayan culture, enjoying authentic Margaritas and stuffing my mouth with sumptuous Mexican food.  And then I saw this:

mexico contest afar


I was about to fill in the entry form and then realized that I don’t qualify because the contest is for U.S. residents only. *SIGH*    So if you are one, don’t let this opportunity pass.

Enter to win an authentic taste of Mexico on this luscious journey through some of Mexico’s most famous culinary regions. Meander through Oaxaca’s aromatic markets tasting queso (cheese), chocolate and chapulines (grasshoppers), take to the streets of Puebla to sample some of the city’s local specialties—tacos arabes, cemitas and tortitas de Santa Clara are just the beginning—and learn the secrets behind Mexico’s culinary traditions in a mouth-watering cooking class. Marvel at the geometric mosaics that adorn the pre-Colombian buildings at Mitla, choose to discover Mexico’s fascinating ancient history at Monte Alban’s Zapotec ruins, taste sublime traditional dishes cooked in colorful local eateries, take to the streets of Mexico City on a taco crawl and experience a delightful culinary heritage that goes back thousands of years. If you’re after cultural richness, authentic experiences and flavorsome food that’s tinged with fiesta, then this culinary tour is for you.
