13 TV Shows & Movies to Watch on Cinco de Mayo that Celebrate Mexican Culture

Although some holidays might be for gifts, like Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day, some other special occasions are just moments where we can reflect and celebrate. On Thanksgiving, for example, we take a moment to look back and be grateful for everything in the past year. On Cinco de Mayo, on the other hand, we take a moment to reflect on the beauty and richness of Mexican culture.

And, as we celebrate the special day dedicated to the Battle of Puebla, why not have a Mexican-inspired TV show or movie night at home? Some must-watches include the Oscar-winning movies Coco and Roma, the incredible performance by Salma Hayek in Frida and the action-packed Robert Rodriguez trilogy including El Mariachi, Desperado, and Once Upon a Time in Mexico. 

Check out some other recommendations below as you sit down and relax for a night of Mexican cinema and TV at its finest.
