Try something new

You can find plenty of international food around, but Mexican food is much cheaper. For your best food value, look for smaller places that serve "comida corrida" or "menu del día" for $4 or less. Comida corrida is a prix fix meal including soup, main dish, rice and beans, and agua fresca to drink.

La cuenta por favor

It is considered quite rude for a waiter to bring the check before asked. Simply say "la cuenta por favor" or make the international scribbling on your hand sign to get the bill when you are ready.

Breakfast usually starts around 10, lunch at 1 (the main meal of the day) and dinner around 9 or even later. Eating earlier at tourist restaurants is not a problem since they start serving breakfast at 8 or 9, but if you show up at a truly local place for lunch at noon, you will find that nothing is ready yet.
