Traveling to Mexico from Dec 23-31
23.12.2012 - 31.12.2012
I am always in the look for cheap tickets to any destination. I have found tickets to Mexico for about $300 a person via volaris website.
We took our flight via Volaris airlines to Puebla. This city is about 2 hours from Mexico city and very charming and quiet place
compare to the capital Mexico D.F. As usual we don't do any reservation in any hotel in advance....we just go with the flow. We took Taxi from the airport
that cost about 150 Pesos which is $12 USD. In small towns usually we ask the taxi drivers to take us to hotels that they are familiar with. We checked in Hotel called El- Senorial which cost about 600 Pesos which is about $47 USD it is walking distance to the famous Puebla Market and the Artist quarter.
You could spend 2 days in Puebla in order to complete the whole town. For us it was great to meet Roberto local couch-host who showed us around and took us to different places around the city.
The next day we went to Tezpoitlan in Curanvaca. This place is famous for the Pyramid on the top of the mountain. The hike to the Pyramid is about 1hour and half. It is steep mountain with many steps. Traveling with kids, they are going to complain, cry and fuss...we went through all this however once we arrived in the top it was worth it....There we stay in someone's house for about 500pesos about $39. The next day we packed and took taxi that took about 2 hours staright to TAXCO...the taxi cost 1000Pesos about $78USD. TAXCO is known as the Silver town for its famous silver mining. Taxco is in State called Guerrerro. It is very narrow town and its church is seen from all over the town. I think one day is enough to explore the whole town.
