Cinco is five and Mayo is May and those two put together represent the 5th of May aka Cinco de Mayo. 

For anyone who’s new to the concept, this annual one-day Mexican celebration falls on the May 5 and has recently become a shared celebration for Mexicans and non-Mexicans alike. 

Dating back to 1862, Cinco de Mayo was originally practiced to celebrate the Mexican army’s victory over the French Empire during the Battle of Puebla. 

But is now more of a reason for people to get together, have a good time and appreciate all things Mexican. 

And now these five places want you to celebrate the occasion and indulge in the Mexican culture with amazing offers

It’s a celebration like no other – filled with colours, music, delicious food and an enchanting atmosphere!
