In honor of Cinco de Mayo, we dedicated our April 30 Monday Night Twitter Party to Mexican and international travel. Whether it’s the beautiful art work, the flavorful food or the delicious drinks, everybody loves something about the Mexican culture.We shared how we’ll celebrate Cinco de Mayo this year and which part of Mexico we want to visit most. Our tweeters also gave fantastic tips for introducing children to a new culture and their best and worst part of traveling internationally.
