Trust me... you want to be there for the 4th of July. It is Independence Day in the USA but in Mexico it is much more than that. It is a celebration for the Virgin Mary. Things that are included are street fairs, vendors, food, food, food. Food that smells so wonderful that you just want to try everything. At night time there are fireworks but not your traditional fireworks that you see in the USA but up close and in your face fireworks. It is wonderful. And if you are traveling with locals... go and check out the amusement park. Play the games and ride the rides until you want to throw up. It is too much fun and there is so much to do that there are not enough hours in the day.
Their specialty is dessert, but you can also find very good hamburgers and sandwiches (tortas). Good place to hang out and drink ponche the traditional christmas drink in Mexico.
Favorite Dish: Tortas, ponche, and milkshake.
This is an enclosed courtyard with a restaurant and a Pizza place that also serves to the restuarant's customers. Saturday night at 9 PM we were just about the only customers, so i would say that the atmosphere is relaxed and quiet.
Favorite Dish: I had the queso fundido with onions, peppers and beef - terrific and filling.
Forget the stairs.. going up the hill to get to the stairs is enough. Acambaro is a city that has mountains everywhere.. much like most of the Bajio. But this particular mountainside is the one to check out. If you look soutwest of the city on the Loma you will be able to spot what i am talking about. Hundreds and Hundreds of steps leading to a prayer temple atop the mountain. If you can make it ( and nearly all the locals can) you have the most breath taking view of the city. You will be able to feel the culture and life of Acambaro. Trust me on this one.
