The Languaje
The Language
SPANISH. Don’t assume that because there are a fair number of English speaking residents and visitors that all Mexicans are able to speak English well. A good many do, about 60-65%, the remainder enough to answer basic questions. Be considerate and don’t automatically rattle off in English - you never know if the person is fluent or not. Speak English slowly and clearly.
