Taxco

We’ll be doing a little sightseeing and a little shopping on our day trip to Taxco, a charming picturesque village, categorized as a Magical Towns.  Once an important mining town during colonial times given its extremely productive silver mines, Taxco continues to be one of the best places in the country to shop for silver even today (since the most prestigious silversmiths of the country remain there). The quaint, narrow, windy cobblestone streets lined with silver stores give Taxco an air of magic. We will begin our visit at the iconic Santa Prisca Church on the main square before heading over the to local Viceregal Museum. Of course, the most important thing to do in Taxco is shop – so we will allow ample time for shopping and lunch on one of the many hillside roof restaurants.

This tour can be combined with Cuernavaca for an all day tour.
