2. Hot chilies
Chilies stimulate endorphins and increase the heart rate. And Mexican food? That just makes everyone happy. Head to Nopalito for fiery authentic Mexican dishes that will make your mouth and eyes water. Book reservations in advance, order a margarita pitcher and the Mole Coloradito con Pollo, and this siesta will certainly lead to a fiesta. And then another siesta.
