How to Pick Up Girls

Mexico is a vast country, and like all other major countries, it also has modern cites and economically and socially under-developed cities. You will have the best chance if you stay in and around the major cities where the chances are good. The options are unlimited in Mexico if you know the local language i.e., Spanish. Another major thing is the way you dress. Mexican girls have a perfect sense of dressing and like their men to be dressed equally well. If you have good taste in clothes, your chances increase automatically. Girls like men who are social and respect others, especially women. Try talking to men as well as women to get into their friend circle. One thing you must try to stay away from is to get into political or controversial topics. If you are asked to express your opinion, state what you feel like and let them know that it's just an outsider’s perspective and you barely know what's happening here. Always keep in mind that Mexican girls love to be wooed, so hang on and keep trying. The constant pursual is a must when you are in Mexico, but keep in mind to not push it too much as the girls won’t think twice to shut you down.

If you are well dressed and can speak basic Spanish, you are in for some fun. The girls in Mexico are friendly and will lead you on if they find you attractive. Hookups and one night stands are normal for the girls in the city. However, the dating game is totally different and almost non-existent in the less developed towns.  

Tips for Daytime

Daytime in Mexico is mostly shopping and spending time in cafes or visiting tourist sites. However, women stay approachable even during the day in Mexico. The working ladies might be occupied during the day, but there’s plenty of fish in the ocean for you to try. If the weather is nice, you can try cafes and street shopping venues or visit a mall. Mexican girls are pretty receptive to guys approaching them but if they don’t seem comfortable with you, do not press the issue. Being confident and knowing your limits is the best.

If you know your game and know whom to target, then it won’t take you long to land your first date. If you see a girl sitting alone in a cafe, don’t be hesitant and give it a shot. Approaching girls on the streets is not always a good idea as the streets are not that safe in Mexico due to the drug mafias and gangs, but more on that later. 

RatingDaytime Chance of picking up at daytime: 3.5 / 5

A day game is all about having a chat at first; once you have got the attention, then it’s the usual. Girls in Mexico do not hesitate to talk to guys, especially if you are hot and know Spanish. Opportunities are endless, and if you are good at the game, you won’t be disappointed by the attention you will get. Just keep in mind not to push too soon and not to be a creep. 

Best Places to Meet Girls

Days in Mexico are spent shopping or having a good time with friends and family. The working majority is mostly in offices, but there’s a good amount of girls who can be found in malls, shopping streets, and cafes. Streets are still not a great option to approach a girl as they feel less safe on the streets. Malls and cafes are great conversation starters as the girls feel safer there. It’s a bonus if you have local guys or girls with you as it helps in socializing and increases your chances. Here are some of the best malls and shopping streets you can approach girls and work out the day game: 

  • Centro Commercial mall - Mexico City 
  • Reforma mall - Mexico City 
  • Forum Tlaquepaque - Guadalajara
  • Andares Centro Commercial - Guadalajara
  • Galerias Monterrey - Monterrey
  • El Zocalo - Monterrey
  • Superama - Morelia

Tips for Nighttime

Mexico is filled with clubs, bars, lounges, and just about anything to satisfy your interests. It’s a great place with great nightlife and an equally amazing crowd. There’s a lot of mingling that happens during the night, and it should not be difficult for you to find someone and have your moment. The nightlife pretty much resembles hoe nightlife in American cities, especially in Mexico City, Monterrey, and other modern cities. To increase your chances during the night, start from the very basic, your look.

Mexican girls like to dress up and appreciate if a guy puts in the effort to look good. If you look good, it will be easier to approach women. The other thing that matters is Spanish; if you can even get a hold of the common phrases to start a conversation, you will have a real shot. The bars and clubs are well marked in terms of the crowd that visits them so some nightlife venues will be more conservative than others. One thing to keep in mind is that Mexican girls are independent and seek similar men. They also don’t mind spending $40 - $60 every night they are out, so if you are after the top tire, do not shy away from spending a few dollars as it will only increase your likeability. 

RatingNighttime Chance of hooking up at nighttime: 4 / 5

The chances are that if you are average looking and you play the game right, you won’t be going back alone after night.

But the competition also increases during the nighttime especially for the hotter girls, so be quick to grab an opportunity, and make the best of the opportunity.  

Best Nightclubs to Meet Girls

The major cities like Mexico City and Monterrey are filled with nightclubs. If you are visiting a less popular city, you may find nightclubs there but the crowd there would be a lot conservative than what you will find in the urban and major cities. Usually, there are no dress codes, but since the girls expect guys to dress up, putting on something good is never a bad option. Here are some of the best clubs in Mexico to make the best of your nighttime:  

  • The City Nightclub Cancun - Cancún, Quintana Roo
  • SENS - Mexico City
  • Coco Bongo - Cancún
  • Patrick Miller - Mexico City
  • Smith Nightclub - Monterrey

Mexico isn’t a difficult place to travel around as it offers a range of transportation options. There are budget airlines, public buses, rental cars, Uber, minibusses, etc. Most of the options are cost-effective, but sometimes rental taxis can charge you extra if they think you are a foreigner and don’t know much about the area. Most states are well connected and transportation is available almost all the time. 

By air:

Mexico is well connected via the air route and has international flights from different regions of the world. Most of the cities have small airports connecting them via the air route. The low-cost revolution made the fares cheap during the first decade of the 2000s, and the prices have only gone up marginally since then. If you are planning to fly your way into Mexico, the chances are that you might have a connecting flight that makes you land in the USA first and then Mexico. Direct flights are also available, but for Asian countries, connecting flights are cheaper options. 

Terminal 2 Mexico City International Airport

By bus:

High-speed intercity bus services are available, and the buses use toll roads to make your journey even more comfortable. The toll charges are already added to your ticket. The buses have washrooms and will generally show movies during your journey. They are comfortable for long journeys and are readily available. 

By car:

The legal driving age in Mexico is 18 without adult supervision, and it is fun to drive around Mexico as the toll roads are well maintained. Although you might have to pay relatively high, the quality of the roads will be worth it. For traveling within a city and short distances, rental cars such as Uber is advised as understanding the roads, and navigating can sometimes be a difficult task. Especially after dark. 

Bus in Mexico

By train:

Trains were phased out in the mid-20th century in Mexico like most countries in America, and so there are no train options for intercity travel although you can reach Mexico via The San Diego Trolley which operates via downtown San Diego to California-Baja California border. 

People waiting at the subway

By boat:

There are only two ways you can enter Mexico via boat, it’s either by crossing the border from Guatemala or by arriving at the USA and then crossing the border. Cruise ships are readily available for the United States and it is always a fun ride if you are opting for a good cruise company. 


The Visa to Mexico for most of the countries is free for 30-180 days. The free visa is offered to all European Union nations, plus Australia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Singapore, Switzerland, the United States, etc. To see the full list of countries, please visit the official site of Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs. For others, a visa must be obtained before the travel by applying to Mexican consulate. For further details, please visit your nearest Mexican Embassy.  

Digital Nomads and Remote Work

Mexico offers a lot of the comforts digital nomads are looking for when it comes to working remotely. The beaches and mountains seem like the ultimate fantasy, and the friendliness of locals also make it possible to convert it into digital nomad heaven. The affordability, reliable internet, good weather put Mexico on a high pedestrian. Although it may not be the cheapest of the countries to live in, and might not be as popular as Thailand and Indonesia, it’s more affordable than the European and American countries offering the same. If you find Mexico to fit in your budget, it’s a great option for a digital nomad. Here are a few cities that boast of everything you need as a digital nomad:

  • Mexico City
  • Puebla
  • Guadalajara
  • Guanajuato

Internet and Mobile Operators

In Mexico, three telecom service providers rule the market. Telcel is the market leader, and the network, and internet speed is decent throughout all the states. You can find ready to use sim cards at most of the places. AT&T sim cards are free whereas others you have to pay for. The data plans start from roughly $5 and can last you 2-3 weeks. The main three operators are:

  • Telcel
  • AT&T
  • Movistar 

Gambling and Casinos

Mexico has mixed and unclear rules when it comes to gambling. Unlike most Latin American countries, gambling isn’t entirely legal in Mexico. The influence of catholic church and politics keeps gambling from becoming fully legal. Instead of all that, you can enjoy betting on horse racing, bullfighting, lottery, scratch-off cards, etc. Casino style games such as blackjack and roulette can also be found in some states. Here are some of the famous casinos in Mexico:

  • Casino Life - Mexico City 
  • Dubai Palace Casino - Cancún, Quintana Roo
  • Casino Life Vallarta - Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco
  • Casino Caliente - Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur
Casino Caliente

Weed and Drugs

Mexico has had a long and complicated relationship with weed and drugs throughout its history. There have been several law changes related to Cannabis in Mexico, and the latest law allows an adult to use cannabis for recreational uses, and a person can possess up to 5 grams of weed without getting into any kind of trouble. One thing to keep in mind is that the state laws are different, so make sure you are not crossing the limit, or you might have to pay a hefty price for even a small quantity of weed. Local guys better understand the market, so being friends with locals will help you otherwise you will end up paying double of the original price. 

Other synthetic drugs are strictly illegal in Mexico, and possession of the same can land you in serious trouble. 

Health, Fitness, Gyms and Massage

Fitness has been a recent phenomenon in Mexico, and the population is starting to get aware of the benefits of a fit body. There have always existed parks and playgrounds in Mexico, and the vast coastline also means there's plenty of natural options to workout. The recent gymming revolution has also reached Mexico, and you can find various gyms as well as fitness studios around the country. Yoga came here pretty early and has stayed as an option for physical as well as mental well being. It is also not hard to find good massage parlors here that provide excellent services. 

STDs and HIV

STDs and HIV have been pretty well controlled in Mexico as compared to the rest of the developing nations. It’s very rare to encounter someone infected especially if you are not having intercourse with sex workers or drug abusers. No matter what, precaution is always better than cure. 

Stay Safe

In most of the cities, location is very important as security changes from place to place. Areas close to downtown (centro) are safer to walk at night, especially on the "Plaza", "Zócalo" or "Jardín" (main square) and areas nearby. Stay in populated areas, avoid poor neighborhoods, especially at night, and don't walk there at any time if you are alone. Vicious beatings have been reported at resorts by people who have travelled alone, so stay alert for any suspicious-looking individual. If you wish to visit one of the slums, you should only go as part of a guided tour with a reputable guide or tour company.

Mexico has been long known for drug cartels and gangs. If you are visiting small towns and borders that fall under Mexican cartel area, try and avoid traveling alone especially after sunset. If you are in the major cities too, going out in the dark on deserted roads can be very dangerous. Call a cab and wait till its there to pick you up.
