    Despite being touted as a haven for LGBTQ travelers the ZR has something for everyone. Hotels, restaurants, and markets are here in abundance along with an amazing stretch of beach (Dead Man's Beach). It's also an easy walk along the water to the Malecon area.

    Just a couple of [perhaps petty] annoyances: Street merchants will sell you anything (some shady types will breeze by offering you illicit drugs) and might be overly persistent (especially time-share salespeople). Also, the street your hotel is on may not be familiar to your taxi driver so be prepared to give directions if returning here from another part of town.

    All in all though this is a great place to experience Puerto Vallarta.

    Cool and seemed very safe. Some excellent restaurants and bar in the plaza and some hidden gems nearby.

    Boat ride and express cart took us around to sight see the parque fundidora and other attractions. Nice and funny tour guide made us laugh.

    I enjoyed it more the I thought I would have. Everything is in the Centro. Easy access but the Combi (bus) is hard to comprehend. It’s great walking city. The weather never changes. I was there 5 weeks and not one day of rain in November.

    If you're in the area, make sure to spend an afternoon wandering the beautiful plazas and colourful streets of Tlaxcala's historical centre. Tlaxcala is a small, tranquil and clean town, no traffic, no hustle bustle. People are friendly and helpful. There is a weekend market on the Xicohtencatl Plaza next to the central plaza with local artisanal items from cocoa and mole to woollen goods.

    It's not really a garden as much as a park or square in front of the famous pink cathedral, la Parroquia. It's in the center of town so you will most likely pass through it at least once! What we loved most is that it is still USED as it was intended...as the center of activity where people gather. It's much busier on weekends compared to quieter mid-week evenings, but always absolutely lovely.

    Excellent Town we have something different to see every day is a 10 block area and we were there for 8 days. one point, If you decided to go in the Cathedrals or Churches remember something, this town and surrounding ones are heavy indigenous people and they have very tight laws for entering a church and they will fine you from 1000 mx pesos to what ever they want. just because you used sun glasses for example and NO pictures inside. they also believe that if you take a picture of them or their kids is bad SO ASK PERMISSION BEFORE TAKING PICS OF THEM! so you do not get in trouble. but other than that is a wonderful esperience. ENJOY

    Monterrey has a river walk similar to San Antonio Tx. It's bigger than the one in Texas but different. There are four or five restaurants. the Mexican History museum, the original foundry that established Monterrey and a boat ride with commentary but all in Spanish. Very few people speak English in Monterrey. The huge plaza is part of the Governor's palace and the surrounding area is businesses and restaurants. We were there at Christmas so there was a light show at night that would have been good to see. Very clean, very safe and worth a look if you need to kill a few hours in Monterrey.

    Pachuca Ocampo, Huasca is a very nice, picturesque, friendly, and quiet people, its surroundings as Peña del Aire, basaltic prisms, hacienda de San Miguel, very nice rule, more and more lodging offer of all prices, also at Easter, chaos everywhere you look, but we will return but to sleep in this magical town. Colorful everywhere you look and with a wide gastronomic offer and adventure tourism, you can eat delicious pastes, buy cheap and delicious nuts, the town is daytime and I love that, at 11pm it is quiet, ideal to rest, the stray dogs are friendly and well kept, it's nice to see them

    I enjoyed walking the Malecon and the pier. There are some beautiful sights to see. The market is relatively small but pleasant and the chuch is beautiful.

    Even without a guide it is an impressive visual experience to imagine the scale of a city/civilization so well developed thousands years ago.
    The elevation makes it a comfortable place to walk, but put in sunscreen.

    You need to visit this secure, well lit place and full of eating and shopping options. I really enjoy walking it everyday while in Durango!

    The zocalo itself is pretty cool, but it is also surrounded by beautiful and/or interesting buildings. You can also see where they are doing new renovations on the Aztec temples in the corner of the zocalo. There were awesome Aztec priest re-enactors in super detailed costumes in the zocalo as well, performing cleansing rituals and blowing on jaguar whistles. Fascinating!!!!!!
