Teotihuacan is just one of many wonderful day trips from Mexico City

  1. I spent a few days in Taxco at Christmas a couple of years ago. I didn’t shop for silver, but I did have a lovely, restful break exploring the town’s narrow streets and fascinating history!

  2. Strangely, I haven’t gotten around to exploring Mexico. It’s long been on my to do list but airfares are always ridiculous. thank you for some of the suggestions. I’d love to check out Bernal and do some hiking there!

    1. Oh dang. That’s so frustrating! There is so much to see and explore in Mexico, so whenever you do make it here make sure to give yourself plenty of time! I need to go hiking in Bernal too 🙂

  3. I love your website and am enjoying all your stories and adventures and “tips”. It’s making me miss Mexico so much! One place I loved was Tepoztlan, south of Mexico city. When I was in school in Cuernavaca (another lovely city) we took many day trips, and visiting this rather mystical village was a highpoint of my time in Mexico back then.

    1. Héctor was recently telling me about Tepoztlan! We wanted to go when we were in Mexico City but we couldn’t fit it in. It seems like a beautiful city. We’re planning another visit to Mexico City for sometime this summer, so we’ll have to go then!

  4. I’ve only been to Mexico City twice on full-day layovers and now I’m so hooked!! I can’t wait to go for a real trip. I had heard of Puebla because I have friends from there, but I’d never heard of Taxco. Do they have great jewelry?? I love getting unique rings and necklaces from my travels!

    1. I always shop for rings as souvenirs too and I got one of my favorites in Taxco, many years ago. Definitely check out Lauren’s full Taxco post (linked above) for more jewelry shopping tips! I hope you get to visit soon!

  5. This is great timing, we’ll be spending a couple of days in Mexico City in May when my Mum comes for a visit. Unfortunately, we only have time for one day trip so I think it will have to be Teotihuacán. If we managed to find time for one more trip which would you recommend?

    1. That’s so exciting! Teotihuacán is amazing! As for another trip, it kind of depends what you’re looking for — though the other towns on this list all have certain similarities. Puebla is a medium sized city, while Taxco, Cholula, and Bernal/Tequisquiapan are smaller towns are very laid back. Cholula is absolutely beautiful and very easy to get to from Mexico City — it’s probably the closest of the three, and it’s right next to Puebla. I would highly recommend it. However, I haven’t been to Bernal or Tequisquiapan, and they look charming! Taxco is really beautiful as well. You can check out Lauren’s full post about it on her site for more info about what to do there, as I haven’t been there for like 8 years!

      All this to say, I basically recommend everything. ?
