Tepoztlán is located in the state of Morelos, with a warm humid climate during most of the year and just 50 minutes away from Mexico City, this fascinating Magical Town is characterized by being surrounded by mysticism, esoteric rituals and a calming vibe that few places manage to transmit. One of the most characteristic activities in Tepoztlán is to climb the Cerro del Tepozteco, a protected area with great archaeological wealth and which is considered the heart of the place; it is said that people seek to visit this site to clean their energy and recharge surrounded by nature. The market that runs on weekends is also a great option to visit, with hundreds of crafts and local products that will surely fascinate you.

The city of Guanajuato, capital of the state of Guanajuato, is a place that everyone should visit at least once in a lifetime. The journey by car is about 4 hours, but the adventure begins as soon as you begin to drive, since you enjoy beautiful landscapes that make the journey worthwhile. Guanajuato shines for being an extremely colorful city, rich in culture and history, with amazing colonial buildings, local commerce, fantastic food and much more. Every year the world-famous International Cervantino Festival takes place with thousands of attendees who enjoy concerts, recitals, theater productions and many others. Our favorite spots to visit are the Alhóndiga de Granaditas, the Cathedral and the Juárez Theater.

Taxco is located in the state of Guerrero, 2 and a half hours away from Mexico City. It is the paradise of those people who like silver, since much of their local trade is focused on this metal, which turns into precious pieces of jewelry, decoration and accessories. Taxco de Alarcón, as it is known, is officially recognized as Ciudad Luz, thanks to the Master Lighting Plan that makes it shine in a unique way. It also has important historical monuments and colonial buildings, which have made it one of the most special Magical Towns in all of Mexico.
