Anyone can host a Mexico Night!

Mexico Night (Noche Mexicana) is a public party which explores Mexican culture, festivities, food, crafts and conscious travel, ecotourism and responsible travel. It can be conducted on any budget. Just use your imagination and remember 'el único tope es el cielo.'

How MexicoNight Works

Our idea borrows from social bridging exercises and Open Space Technology with the addition of green drinks and botanas.

Find videos about Mexico on YouTube. Among our handcrafted vids: Mercado Central de Abastos and Caldo de Piedra. Here's Ron's Mexico playlist.

Black Sheep Inn hosts a regular (almost weekly) MexicoNight (all vegetarian) serving re-fried beans with cheese, Spanish rice, corn bread, guacamole, tomato salsa and limey lettuce and has tequila shots on special. Occasionally chili rellenos are served with a spicy chocalate mole sauce. Tequilas that are available in Ecuador include Jose Cuervo, Sauza, Sombrero Negro, El Charro and a mezcal called Oaxaca.
