There’s a thorough and useful new article on SmarterTravel.com on lesser-known destinations in Mexico. Their use of the phrase “under-the-radar” doesn’t really jibe with the inclusion of San Miguel de Allende – I think I’ve seen that city featured in every single travel mag there is over the past year – but otherwise it’s a worthy collection of gems.
They include Merida, near where I have a little Mexican beach house, and extra points for pointing to the right resources there. They run down ten places in all, including Loreto, Guanajuato, and Pátzcuaro. There are great resource links in each story and this is a well-researched piece that captures the essence of each spot well.
Each town is highlighted on a different page, but you can jump to the one you’re interested in without scrolling through them all: look for the navigation box on the right on each page, including the first. See you in…Troncones?
