The cover story in the current issue of Travelworld is from yours truly, a piece on the reasons to get away from the beaches and visit the middle of Mexico instead. This is the old part, the colonial part, the area with the most interesting architecture. And for most of the spots profiled, these are great value destinations as well.
In the article, which is accompanied by some nice photos I took while living there for a year, are the spots you should head to if you have some time to move around. These are the real gems of the region: Zacatecas, Morelia, Patzcuaro, San Miguel de Allende, and Guanajuato (where I lived for a year and will return to next year.)
Even in San Miguel, which has some 10,000 foreigners living there, you’ll see as many or more domestic tourists as foreign ones. That means prices that the locals can bear, not prices meant for celebs and dot-com millionaires like you find in Los Cabos.
Read the article for the rest of the story. It’s on the Issu platform, which means you can read it like a regular magazine, flipping the pages and seeing large photos.
