Colorfully costumed charro cowboys ride on horseback before you in competitive display, as a lovely looking couple of singers delight you with romantic Mexican songs. Learn how to dance along to jarana and jarabe melodies in an authentic Mexican fiesta. Your day also includes a buffet meal of local dishes including lime soup, pollo pibil, tomatillo-cilantro pork, and sweet flan.
