    the Colonial Heartland of Mexico

    by cobrioc Updated Mar 5, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cathedral

    Favorite thing: Silver mining town called Real de Catorce, which is being reborn as a rugged tourist destination, that this one night reflected the range of experiences I had seen over a 10-day otur through what is known as the Colonial heartland of Mexico.
    In cities such as San Luis Potosi, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Aguascalientes,
    Zacatecas and real de Gatorce, I found both the rustic and refined.

    Fondest memory: Though seemingly inhospitable, the craggy, cactus-covered desert mountains of this region are home to cities of enormous beauty and sophistication, rich in culture and history.

    Take a day-trip to Taxco, one...

    Favorite thing: Take a day-trip to Taxco, one of the silver-craft capitals of the country.

    Fondest memory: The drive out of the city is pretty, whether you take the new toll road or the old road.Once you get there, you will not only find beautiful silver -- particuularly the famous Los Castillos factory and shop (more elsewhere) -- but can also have a great lunch in the pretty town square and enjoy a scenic walk around the narrow and hilly colonial streets of Taxco.

    DIA 5If you are interested...

    Favorite thing:

    DIA 5

    If you are interested in buying silver you can spend a tight day in Taxco, waking up earlier and returning the same day would be enough to make a visit of most of the central jewelries in town.
