no gracias

Hitting the beach in Mexico is always a blast. When you start your day on the sand you never know what to expect. The only draw back to Mexican beaches are the locals that cruise by selling their goods. When visiting Puerto Vallarta, Cabo or Cancun (to name a few) tourist are often hounded with locals asking them to buy their trades. These men and women usually dress all in white, and carry a case selling nicknacks and jewelry (most commonly silver). This gets a tad annoying when all your trying to do is relax and enjoy a day at the beach. It's best to politely say 'no thank you'. Or even better, use the native tong and say 'no gracias'.

As you see above, these tourists got a little tired of repeating themselves.
