Visit Pancho Villa's Home - Quinta Luz Museum

by kathymof

General Francisco "Pancho" Villa is the most famous hero of the Revolution of 1910. He was quite the ladies man and married several times (one rumor is 23 times!) and never with the aid of a divorce. He was assassinated in 1923 and several of his wives claimed his estate. This created quite a mess that had to be cleared up and the Mexican govenment finally declared that Luz Corral de Villa was his legal heir. His mansion was named for her (Quinta Luz) and was also used for his primary guard during the revolution. The villa is run and maintained by the Mexican military and is used as a museum. One of the interesting items on display is the car he was driving when he was assassinated - you can see the bullet holes in it. The tile floors in the music room are magnificent.

Hollywood films may give you a distorted view of Mexico. In the cities you'll be out of place on a horse with a sombrero & 30-30. (And probably in jail)
Pancho Villa is loved/honored by many, but few could tell exactly what he did. There are special songs called Corridos which often mention Pancho Villa and statues of him, like this one off Mexico Route #101 in Ejido Francisco Villa, Tamaulipas. Villa and his Division of the North were in the Mexican Revolution which started November 20, 1910. BTW, Nov 20th is a national hooliday, so you might see celebrations with people in costumes like Pancho Villa, otherwise NOT.

Exploring the City Center

by gdilieto

Main Chihuahua's sights are clustered in the City Center scattered in a few-block area. With all due respect, there isn't much to be impressed with about the tourist sites and the same city center - an unbalanced blend of colonial buildings, modern constructions, small streets and wide avenues - is not too pleasant to walk around, but anyway you can spend a couple of hours walking around and going through some of the key moments of Mexican National history.

The heart of the City Center is Plaza de la Constitución with the Colonial Cathedral with the baroque façade; in the day-hours it is lively and crowded with street vendors and passers-by. A couple of blocks off the Square, reached by an unattractive walking avenue with retail shops and US-chain eateries, is the Palacio de Gobierno (Government Palace), the place where Father Miguel Hidalgo was executed during the Mexican War of Independence; other than for its historical relevance, it is worth visiting for the murals in the inner court. If you are into history you may also stop by the Palacio Federal, today the main Post Office, right across the street, where at the lower level you can visit the cell were Father Hidalgo was held prisoner; do not expect much from the visit, you'll find just a reconstruction of the cell along with few objects that supposedly belonged to the man. On the other side of the street the white church in a large square is the Iglesia de San Francisco, the place where Hidalgo's body was buried; I did not visit it the inside but the all-white building makes a nice color contrast with the brown hills and the blue sky. If you still have time to spare you can some few more blocks an get to the University's cultural center Quinta Gameros, an art nouveau mansion housing the Regional Museum. I did not visit (closed on Mondays) the Museo de la Revolución, dedicated to the hero of Mexican Revolution Pancho Villa that supposedly is another attraction worth visiting; you can check it out.

The legendary Zapata Emiliano Morelos, alias Pancho Villa (1879 – 1919).

Due the changes on VT, I will give info that is more detailed later. I will place only pictures now and I will see what will happen after the start of VTML. To stay on VT or not to stay, that is the question ;-)

Cerro de la Bufa, the highest peak in Zacatecas

by manil51

The entrance of el mina is often packed with large Mexican families waiting for the Swiss-made teleférico, in which you travel to Cerro de la Bufa, and site of a chapel, several museums and marvelous romantic statues of Pancho Villa and other rebel leaders on horseback.

Road From Ojinaga To Cuidad Chihuahua

by ridermirv

Howdy,

Has anyone been down federal Hwy. 16 from Ojinaga to Chihuahua? Is this a good road, and is there gasoline along the way? I will be travelling to Chihuahua by motorcycle, so I'll need gas about every 120 miles. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Marc

Hi ... the road is in very good conditions, theres 2 roads one go inside "El cañon del Pegüis" the Pegüis Canyon nice view but a los of curves, the second road is a brand new road (toll about 4 USD) this road skip the canyon is more safe... just remeber the zone is a semi-desert area not a great view :)

And Wellcome to Chihuahua !!!! my Home place.

Thanks so much for your reply. I'm looking forward to exploring your estado.

Are there any "must see" places you can recommend? I plan on going to Copper Canyon, but would like to explore other places too.

Not much to see btwn Ojinaga and Chihuahua, except for the Coyame Caverns, Chihuahua is a Beautyful city, go to the gobverment building in the center of the city, go to the former house of "Pancho Villa", from Chihuahua to Creel the view is getting better, stop al Santa Isabel and eat a "paleta" i dont know how to say in English,... from Chihuahua to Cuauhtemoc (100 kms) take the toll road is very nice, from Cuauhtemoc to Creel extreme precaution cous is a double road... in the Copper Canyon are several places you must go... Divisadero, Cusarare Fall, Rekowata (termal waters), Basaseachi Fall (246 mts), ...

I hope you have a nice and safe trip... and once again WELLCOME to Chihuahua...

Hey Marc, I just returned from a similar trip on a bike. The info posted is consistant with what I experienced, you'll love the Copper Canyon area. MX16 from Chih to the west is fantastic and even better the road from Creel to Hidalgo de Parral...strongly recommended.

Do keep in mind that maps are a fairly unreliable indicator of road quality...I'm guessing by your question that you know that. You didn't say what type of bike you're riding but be sure to slow down for the topes :)

Visiting Mexico from New Mexico - where to go?

by Supernib

Hello,

I will be attending a wedding in New Mexico this winter. Since I have only travelled along the east coast of the US, I plan to make it a part of a roadtrip in the southern US, and was thinking of adding Mexico to the "itinerary" (which is more of a general idea of where I'd like to go and in what order - I prefer to choose on the fly as I go) seeing as I'll be less than 3 hours from the Mexican border. So, where would be a good place to drive to and stay in Mexico that's within a day's drive from southwest New Mexico? Is there anything a little further that would truly be worth the extra driving? Generally when traveling I'm interested in local culture and cuisine, nature/scenic places, local arts and crafts, and of course I also enjoy the beach.

Any and all tips are greatly appreciated since I know little about Mexico at this point (aside from some Spanish and some Mexican dishes).

Thanks!

by bacadehuachi1

Aparently you have 2 choices. Lets say you have 2 or 3 days availabli to Explore part of northen Mexico.
1- Travel to Nogales, Az, to cross into Mexico via Mex-15 to Hermosillo and San Carlos Guaymas, Nice beach and great food, the are some tips in this site about the state of sonora
2-Cross the border via El Paso-Juarez (both very crowded citys) once out of Juarez on Mex Hwy-45 is an easy ride to the City of Chihuahua, Nice and clean, lots of history and culture visit downtown and the Pancho Villa museum (that was his home),tips are available here as well
