We were only in Taxco for 2 nights. We walked to the Zocalo from our hotel.
We toured the Cathedral, and then people watched for a short time.
So much activity, so many little shops, we bought a print of the church from one of the local shops.
We would have liked to stay longer in Taxco. Such a unique experience.

A great place for people watching as well as shopping and eating. There are plenty of silver shops in this area with good(?) deals. Remember your tour guide may be taking you to the place where they get the biggest kickback so shop around. Plenty of places to just sit and relax.

Every evening that we here there was a show going on. (4 days straight)
There’s plenty of benches and stalls with people selling their wares. People aren’t pushy here like many other places.
There’s a few restaurants right on the zocalo where you can dine on the terraces overlooking the action.
Overall a nice center!

I loved the colorful community of Taxco. Streets were narrow and windy, with those cute Volkswagen cars as taxis. Lots of restaurants and quaint little shops lined each streets. People are mostly friendly and welcomes travelers. The church is breathtaking as it stands brilliantly in this city. Travelers should visit this place , maybe stay one night to truly enjoy the day and night activities.

Taxco is a real treat. It's laid in beautiful mountains which gives amazing views wherever you are in the city. The streets are extremely steep and beautiful with black shiny cobblestone and white decorations. The houses are all painted in the same colors: dark red and white with red tile roofs. It is such a pleasure just walking the streets but make sure you get of the touristiest areas as well. We were there during the Dia de Muertos and it was amazing. There were beautiful flower decorations everywhere and so much bustling activity from locals preparing for the festivities. We loved just sitting on street corners watching the locals. In the evening of the Dia de Muertos there was a parade on the central Plaza Borda (Zocalo) and a very happy and easy atmosphere. In the morning of Dia de Muertos we went to the Taxco cemetery Pantheon to see all the locals bring flowers and decoration for their family graves, clean them, have picnic there and enjoy the day remembering their passed away family member. The non-stop line of white beetle taxis going to the crowded area in front of the cemetery was a sight in itself. The cemetery is worth the visit any day. It's one big maze of graves without any structure at all. You literally have to climb over and walk on the graves to move around in there.

The Santa Prisca cathedral on Plaza Borda is amazing and reflects the enormous wealth from the silver mines around Taxco. The restaurants on Plaza Borda are rather touristy and a bit overprized. We went to smaller places away from the center with cheap and good roasted chicken: "Pollo asado".

We liked the Indian Market next to the cathedral even more. You get lost in there and can spend hours looking at the many cramped-in stalls with colorful products. We went there several times during our 3-days stay in the city.

The Christ monument overlooking the city is also well worth the visit. It's a steep ride up there and the view is breathtaking. You can basically see everything in the city.

One of the most fascinating things about Taxco is the 200 white beetle taxis that climb the steep streets of the city. They must be geared differently to ride those streets. It's really amazing and I think we took 100 pictures of the Taxco taxis alone!

We didn't visit any silver stores and felt that part of Taxco was a bit too touristy for us.

We walked the small streets at night and always felt safe.

Taxco is one of the special "Pueblos Magicos" in Mexico and it deserves it. It's spectacular, surprising, heart-warm and safe. We hardly saw any western tourists there, but it seemed to be a popular place for the Mexicans to spend Dia de Muertos.

We normally stay far away from very touristy places, but we loooooove Taxco

Great place to go for viewing an incredible and unusual church. although it needs a good dusting with all its intricate carvings.
A good place to shop for silver but be VERY careful of the quality
There are many many shops but only a very few have original items.
The narrow streets feel very European and nice food available everywhere.
We loved the street popcorn !!!

Took a day trip from Mexico City. The 3 hour drive would have been worth it if Taxco was as beautiful as they say it is . It is so commercial and all the silver shops look the same. Prices of silver are better off in the US.... It is not what it's hyped up to be. Moreover it is dirty and the town is not well maintained. Careful not to take the wrong turn into their main market which is packed and hard to get out. There is also the teleferico which is ok but not exactly the most exiting thing.
Better to check out another place to visit in Mexico

Very pleasantly surprised by Taxco after not going there for many years! Beautiful town with wonderful people, colonial architecture, paths, nooks and hidden places

Will be going back soon.
