Mexico’s best tourism fair of the year is #ExpoFONAES2012

by Ron Mader

Mexico’s best tourism fair of the year is … not a tourism event per se but rather a ginormous expo of local folk and craft. Hosted by FONAES, the eponymous Expo FONAES is taking place now and over the weekend at Mexico City’s Palacio de los Deportes.

A Tasty Tip for Chocolate Lovers Visiting Oaxaca …

By Ron Mader

If you like chocolate and if you’re visiting Oaxaca, my personal recommendation is purchasing Lucia’s homemade Chocoluchy, a special treat during Muertos.

You’ll find chocolate maker Lucia Diaz Gonzalez selling her chocolates in person at the Pochimilco Market (Colonia Xochimilco) on Fridays and Saturdays, 9am-3pm. You can find her chocolates at stores including Bambu and Grupo Lula’a.

Disclosure: Yes, I do make Chocoluchy promotional materials and often receive chocolate in compensation. That said, I know good chocolate … and good people!
