This is a very big topic because there are a lot of things that you can do for entertainment, and have fun with those things. I will give you some examples: music, sports, TV, concerts, music reviews, Mexican movie reviews, etc.

In Mexico, there are a lot of things that you can do for entertainment. Entertainment is to have fun with the intention of fixing the attention of an audience or its participants. There are different ways to entertain people, but it depends on the taste of each person, and something very important about how to entertain people is the age of the person, because we know that you are not going to entertain an adult, a child or a baby with the same thing. Obviously they have different ways to have fun.

For example:
– An adult likes to see football games, some cultural expositions, to know about what is happening in the world, to read the news paper, etc.
– A child likes to play football instead of watching it on TV, to see animated cartoons, listening to music, saw movies, etc.
– A baby  likes to cry, to play with his toys, to eat, to destroy the things that he takes, etc.

Mexico is one of the biggest stages of entertainment worldwide. Our culture is unique and it is showed every day in shows, performances and exhibitions to which they are invited to participate. In Mexico you will find that all space is used for cultural expression. The number of theaters and auditoriums is remarkable, but you may also find that even in a simple square you can enjoy a show.

But Mexico also receives the best of art and show business. If you visit the biggest cities of Mexico, you can see the concert or recital of some world-renowned artist, or also to met important people in some shows.

After the excitement of witnessing a show, you’ll want to continue the party. That’s why the Mexican people know how to enjoy the nightlife and for that purpose it has hundreds of bars, restaurants and clubs to do so. Furthermore, we like to share these spaces and our joy with those who visit us.

Guanajuato has a lot of shows that are recognized in Latin-American, and also in the entire world, I will tell you some of them:

   -Festival Cervantino
   -Expresión en Corto
   -Festival de Órgano
   -Rally Corona
   -Guanajuato en Globo
   -Muerte en Cartelera
   -Muestra de Cine de Horror

If you are from another country or also if you want to know more about Mexico and its mystery, even if you are from here, you can visit a lot of places where you can see the history of this wonderful republic and all its magnificent cultures.

I will tell you some current places that you have to see if you want to be impressed.

   -Chichen Itzá
   -Cancún
   -Guanajuato
   -Ixtapa
   -Monterrey
   -Palenque

Mexico has a lot of places that are very important and if I put all of them here, I will not have enough room.

Sports:

In México there are many sports but not all are from México because some are from the U.S., Rome, England, etc. For example, soccer is the sport most used in the world. Each country has their team of soccer, and competes with each for the victory’s trophy.

Many people likes soccer but some people don’t like to play it, but enjoy watching the games. Currently, there are many stadiums throughout the entire republic of Mexico, but the most used are from Mexico or Monterrey because these cities are bigger, and there are many people that like soccer.

The boys that represent our country in the games normally are from Mexico. Those men are the best players, for example, there is Memo Ochoa, Giovanni Dos Santos, and Cuauhtémoc Blanco.

 

When Mexico wins a game, in the principal streets of Mexico, there are many people celebrating the victory of their country. The street of the Independence Angel is the street with most people.

Many people play soccer: children, adolescents and adults.
Soccer is a funny game, but also there are others sports that are good, like American football. This is a very strong sport, probably the strongest sport in the world, because the players, always hit each other. Nonetheless, it is an exciting sport, popular.

Those games in the professional category almost never happen in Mexico, but in the mid category frequently you see them. For example, Technologic De Monterrey has their team, and competes with other teams, but only inside of the Mexican republic.

Another popular sport is  swimming because people likes to watch it and practice it.

The sports fans are always watching games on TV or live, but you can also go to the city where the game is. This is a great way to get to know more places, not only go to see the game.

TV:

In Mexico there are many forms of having fun,  like exploring places, walking with the family, and playing a sport. But there are also other forms of entertainment: TV, radio, movies, etc. People now spend more time in their houses seeing TV, a movie, etc.
It is okay that you can relax, watching TV or a movie, but you mustn’t be all the time in front of the TV; you must leave to go somwhere, be with friends, family, etc.

There are many ways to enjoy your time, but what makes it unique is who you spend it with. Remember, we will not live for ever, so we have to know how use our time wisely!

For example, sports are a best option to live with the family, take a stroll through the city, and explore places, etc.

There are many ways to enjoy time. For example,  single people go to bars, cinema, or stay at home, if someone, doesn’t knows how to enjoy time, they are alone, because they don’t have family or friends to spend the day with. If you are accompanied with your family or friends, you will have unforgettable moments.

TV, sport games, cinemas, going to bars, and exploring places  are many ways to enjoy. Only use your imagination to know what to do, find a way to entertain your life!! It’s fun!
