Alfonso Galindo with his daughter dressed for Carnivale, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingDifferent regions, states and even cities in Mexico have very different traditions.  This extends from the food to the character of the people, which is why it’s difficult to pinpoint or to generalize all Mexicans in one bunch. 
 
The Mayans have always been in what is present-day Mexico, even if the Discovery Channel calls them “the lost civilization.” They have never gone away. There are still over 68 indigenous languages still spoken in Mexico, which can tell you how many different indigenous groups are still in Mexico. Not everybody speaks Spanish.
 

People might wear different colored clothes based on their indigenous group and eat certain different types of food. In general, the northern part of Mexico is more paternalistic whereas the southern part of Mexico is more maternalistic. It would be a mistake to think that all Mexicans are macho and the men decide what happens in the house, because, once again, it depends on the community. Typically, in the southern part of Mexico it’s the woman who decides and in the northern Mexico—they like to think it’s the man but I can tell you, once again, it’s always the woman who decides.
