What You Can Expect

Taxco and Cuernavaca from Mexico City

Taxco and Cuernavaca Day Trip

After hotel pickup in downtown Mexico City, travel with your guide to Cuernavaca. Soak up the balmy weather as you take a brief tour of 'The City of Eternal Spring,’ a favorite weekend escape for Mexico City residents.

Next, enjoy a beautiful drive to Taxco, a colonial silver mining city. Located on a hillside surrounded by rugged mountains and cliffs, Taxco exudes Old World charm with its meandering cobblestone streets, quaint squares and tile-roofed buildings.

In Plaza Borda, admire Santa Prisca, an 18th-century rose-hued cathedral with twin bell towers, built with ornate Churrigueresque influence. Learn about how Jose de la Borda happened upon a massive silver claim, became one of Mexico’s wealthiest men who then had Santa Prisca constructed. Inside the church, you’ll find gorgeous goldleaf work.

I took this day trip,and I mean a full day,to see what lies outside the big city, and I wasn't disappointed! the countryside is so pretty, both towns our group 3 visited was old world charm at its best! the churches were breathtaking, the poinsettia plants were in full bloom,the food was amazing ,plenty of shops in taxco to purchase amazing handmade silver jewelry for a reasonable price. As I stated, it was a full day, mostly because of backed up traffic caused by construction, but it was time well spent, our tour guide was a walking encyclopedia of mexican history, he couldn't have been any nicer, again, a lot of bang for your buck!!

This was my second time in Taxco, If one is only in Mexico for two or three days, this day-long trip should not be missed. A beautiful city high in the mountains.

An excellent tour. We highly recommend it, but it is a long day. Our guide, Scarlet, was exceptional and really looked after us in both places. We were the only English speakers in the group and she made certain we got al of the information, etc. we needed.
