Mexico’s Colonial Side
For true Old World charm, few places can compare to Mexico. Great cities, grand monuments, cathedrals and plazas sprang up across New Spain from 1519-1821 and still stand as a testament to the country’s wealth of silver and other resources. To get a feel for Mexico’s colonial side, the Mexico Tourism Board recommends cities such as:
This enchanting Central Highlands city with its pastel-painted skyline inspired muralist Diego Rivera, who was born here. At the height of the rush, Guanajuato’s mines produced one-fifth of the world’s supply — and financed magnificent structures such as the ornate San Cayetano Temple.
San Miguel de Allende
Another colonial Highlands town and a major stop along the former Antigua Camino Real silver trail, San Miguel has long been a hub for expatriate artists, writers and musicians. An abundance of hot springs and a year-round mild climate make it even more alluring.
Despite major regional differences in weather, the best time to visit Mexico is mid-September through mid-May, although keep in mind the Atlantic hurricane season doesn’t end until November. It actually rains the most during the summer, but usually not often enough to spoil a vacation.
