Taxco has a really nice Zócalo with an impressive cathedral. At the Zócalo there a various other nice historic buildings and some restaurants with rooftop terraces and great views. Only downside is the traffic around the Zócalo - it should be restricted.

Around the Zocalo you can find several places of interest, a must see... More

Maneuvering around this very dense, congested mountain town is arduous and confusing, at best but can you--follow the signage and you'll eventually get to the cathedral. Parking is equally difficult but totally possible, often with the help of a local who is likely endorsing a friend's parking lot. A hike, generally uphill, to the cathedral and the plaza is not...

Walking through this town is a walk through old Mexico. The buildings are colonial and the streets were designed for horses not cars. This is the town of silver so stop in and​ perhaps you will purchase some 925 Sterling. Go to the Zocola and enjoy the sights. Visit the Cathedral next to the Zocola. It is well worth the... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip! It is by far a town that like many others preserves their culture and historical buildings. Just beautiful! Plenty to observe, eat, drink and just take in.

It is a beautiful place where you can stroll, people watch.There are restaurants and silver shops, places to buy your Taxco souvenirs and of course the Cathedral. If tired sit on the bench and try to take it all in. Lovely heart of the city.

My father like to came to this beautiful and colorful town, where the Spanish architecture is everywhere you look... the people from this city is really polite and grateful. You can find unique and different dishes, from green with chicharron pozole to fresh Jumiles (comestibles insects). You looking for souvenirs???... don't worry, you'll find silver 9.25 everywhere!!!

This plaza or zócalo is a definite must on your visit to Taxco. The zocalo, although small, has an energy about it that's worth a visit. Enjoy sitting on a bench under the trees and people watch. When you're tired, take in one of the many restaurants and enjoy a meal or drink while overlooking this heart of the city.... More
