The second half of the show, with more than 260 elaborately costumed performers on stage, is an extravaganza of song and dance from the many diverse regions of Mexico. The show takes us from the Peninsule Festival of Yucatan to the Carnival of Veracruz; from a harvest celebration in Tabasco to a demonstration of rope twirling by mounted gauchos from the pampas – and all to the melodic rhythm of live Latin music that continued to haunt us long after we had taken the late-night collectivo back to the reality of our hotel.
