Cinco de Mayo is almost here! While many of us in America appreciate the holiday as a wonderful excuse to indulge in tasty tacos and margaritas, it’s obviously about more than food and libations. Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s victory at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.

In other words, it’s another great reason to celebrate Mexican culture. And a great time to send an instant money transfer to Mexico with Pangea’s debit-to-debit option!

If you’re in the Chicagoland area—like Team Pangea!—many restaurants and bars will be celebrating the day with food and drink specials. As for the #GoPangea team, we’ll be extending the Cinco de Mayo celebration through the weekend, along with celebrating Mother’s Day, of course!
