How to Speak Like a Mexican: La Última y Nos Vamos

Here in Mexico, you can often hear the expression “la última y nos vamos” (last one, then we leave) in reference to one last beer before heading home.


Last night Jorge and I went out with some friends and decided to stop by one last bar, where our buddy Carlos said, “la última y nos vamos”.

Then, this showed up at our table:

There were only 3 people drinking beer.

  1. Ouch! That brings back memories. Bad ones.

    I remember drinking with some buddies in Mexico (I had been awake almost 24 hours and drinking on and off for 10 of those 24 hours) and we were down to the couple of beers, maybe one each. Someone bumped the table, my beer fell and shattered on the floor, several others spilled on the table. I thought, YES! I’m saved. I don’t have to put away that last beer.

    Then my friends ordered another bucket. Sigh…..

  2. I love your photos and have read all of your blogs since 2010. I think what you’re doing is more than wonderful. Keep up the great work and never leave Cancun and the Yucatan Peninsula…
