What is there to do for Cinco de Mayo in Mexico City that's not super touristy? How do locals typically celebrate it?
They normally do a recreation of the Battle of Puebla and recuerdean that day as a historic date in Mexico
You'd be surprised to see how little Mexicans actually celebrate Cinco De Mayo in Mexico. It is much more popular in the United States but with that being said, i'm sure there will be a few, smaller celebrations going on. Head to Licorera Limantour, regardless if anything is going on. One of my FAVORITE bars in Mexico City.
