Taxco is a real treat. It's laid in beautiful mountains which gives amazing views wherever you are in the city. The streets are extremely steep and beautiful with black shiny cobblestone and white decorations. The houses are all painted in the same colors: dark red...More

Took a day trip from Mexico City. The 3 hour drive would have been worth it if Taxco was as beautiful as they say it is . It is so commercial and all the silver shops look the same. Prices of silver are better off...More

Zocalo is no place to relax. That’s fine. It’s a hub of energy and its spokes reach up the ascending cobblestone walkways that encircle the central kiosk. If it’s a tradition to sell wares in the Zocalo then simply accept it. At every turn there’s...More
