Taking a Mexican Vacation? Here are a few words to know

I've traveled a lot to the Cancun area as well as Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta and love the areas. When traveling outside of a resort, I've found it's useful to know a few words of the native language. After all we are in their country and it seems like common courtesy to try to speak a few words to them. It would probably be a good idea to do for any foreign country.

The locals mostly speak English, but upon occasion I've found a few who did not so learning a few basics came in handy. At our resort - www.GrandLuxxe-Vacation.com most of the employees speak English but those working on the property do not. They appreciate a greeting and smile. It doesn't take much to make someone smile.
