Overview
Take a full-day trip out of Mexico City to admire Taxco, a unique colonial town famous for its silver works. Then, see Cuernavaca where you will take a look at the Cathedral which is the seat of the Catholic diocese of the same name in Mexico . It is a building of the sixteenth century, which makes it one of the oldest cathedrals in the whole country. This tour will show you a bit more of Mexican culture and great towns.
Highlights

  • Travel from Mexico City with a guide on an air-conditioned mini-van or bus
  • Learn about the architecture and culture of Mexico’s central highlands 
  • A great overview for first-time visitors 
What to Expect
Meet your guide in Mexico City and enjoy the scenic bus ride to the Morelos state capital to see why Cuernavaca is called “The City of the Eternal Spring.” Stroll the colonial city’s cobblestone streets and visit its historical landmarks. You’ll stop at the Cuernavaca Cathedral—among Mexico’s oldest Catholic cathedrals—and the Palacio de Cortés, which is named for the conquistador who ordered its construction. From Cuernavaca, you’ll re-board the bus and travel to Taxco, a picturesque hillside city renowned for its silver. There, you can in the city’s Old World ambiance while exploring the narrow, winding streets between tile-roofed buildings. Stop at the ornate Santa Prisca church, which was built by French immigrant Jose de la Borda in 1759 after he discovered an impressive silver spring. Before hopping on the bus back to Mexico City, shop for souvenirs at Taxco’s famous artisan silver markets.
