"Don't be offended that a lot..." New Mexico Local Custom Tip by suzyqNM

New Mexico Local Customs: 27 reviews and 33 photos

Don't be offended that a lot of people speak Spanish in southern New Mexico. In Las Cruces, 60% of the population is Hispanic, so Anglos are in the minority. Almost everyone is bilingual, and almost all signs are in English, but you'll still get the feeling you're south of the border.

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
