When in Mexico, here the things that one should observe:
- Bring a map or download from the Mexico website
- Check the Municipal Hall, Police Station and the Market
- Take tricycles as a mode of transportation within the town, in case you don’t have a service vehicle
- If you want to visit the famous cornfields, ask for assistance or coordinate with the Office of the Mayor
- To buy famous San Nicolas Biscuits, look for the house of Lillian Lising Borromeo at Barangay Parian, Mexico
- Wear comfortable clothing, sandals, flip flops or anything light, especially during summer because the climate is tropical and the weather is usually sunny, cloudy with periodic rainshowers.
- When buying at the Market, try to haggle or bargain or ask to lower a price initially given by the vendor. Haggling is a common practice in Kapampangan wet markets.
- If talking to local folks, especially elders, always say "po" or "opo" which means "yes" but connotes great respect.
- Take a jeepney ride to the neighbor City of San Fernando. It is cheaper. Tricycles are only good within the municipality.
- Do not shout when talking to local folks. Be polite. They are nice and hospitable people.
- Do not point a finger to anyone, especially in the face. It is considered as a lack of respect.
- Do not litter anywhere, put all garbage in trash bins. Check the gasoline stations for trash cans or containers.
- Do not park anywhere if you plan to take a break from long drive. Park at the municipal place in front of Santa Monica Church or at the gasoline stations.
- Do not wear dark and heavy clothes. Bring light materials or gadgets.
- If you are planning for a long stay, coordinate with the Office of the mayor or the Police Station, do not take anyone as a tourist guide.
