Day 2: Queretaro / San Miguel de Allende

We'll start our journey to some of the most beautiful Colonial gems of Mexico. Our first stop is the city of Queretaro, named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As we walk along Queretaro's cobblestone streets, we will discover Teatro de la Republica, Corregidora's House and the Aqueduct. Then we'll head off to romantic San Miguel de Allende where we will spend the night. We will experience first hand why San Miguel is one of the most appealing cities in Mexico.

Early in the morning we will depart to Guanajuato, home of the renowned International Cervantes Festival. You'll learn about Mexican History at the Alhondiga de Granaditas and the Monumento al Pipila; these buildings take you back in time to Mexican Independence. You may want to have your picture taken at Callejon del Beso (Alley of the Kiss) and walk through the underground tunnels of this beautiful city.

Today we will visit San Pedro Tlaquepaque, where ceramics, glass, jewelry and many other crafts are found. Then we will have an excursion to the town of Tequila, where the quintessential Mexican liquor is produced.

Day 6: Patzcuaro

Early this morning we depart for Patzcuaro at the state of Michoacan. Patzcuaro shows off both fine architecture and a rich indigenous culture.
