Getting your tongue around a few common Spanish phrases can often make the difference between a standard vacation and a journey into the heart and soul of the culture of a place. No comprendo means I don't understand. How much is this? is another useful one to be familiar with, so put some work into learning ¿Cuánto cuesta?

If you're here on the 27th of February, you better be ready to party. Every year on this day, the entire country comes together to celebrate Independence Day.
