best sports city
Of all the cities in Mexico, Toluca is the most obsessed with sports. Most people know about the professional soccer team, perrenial champs, but sports are big at every school. On weekends in public park you can see the autoworkers and pharmaceutical workers play in amateur leagues. Many public parks also have exercise tracks, and you will see homemakers and retired people jogging and power walking. Basketball is also popular in the parks.
Warning: if you join the locals in a pick up game of soccer or basketball, they are good and the air is thin.
