Mexico Information

A Real Mexican Town star
Do you have preconceived ideas as to what Mexico is really like? This article provides a descriptive example of one "real" Mexican community. The author concludes that all parts of Mexico are "real" but some are more real than others and one should discover it for themself.

A Day in Colonial Morelia star
Morelia, the state capital of Michoacan, a Unesco World Heritage Site, is a colonial masterpiece. Only a few hours from Guadalajara and Mexico City, this vibrant, cultured, and well-preserved city is not on many foreign tourists destination maps. However, it really should be!

Mexico's Annually Returning Emigrants star
For most of the year, a high percentage of the picturesque Mexican state of Michoacan's rural villages and towns are semi-deserted. Come every December, the temporary return of the "Northerners" alters the face of those historically economically depressed communities.

Uruapan More Than Just Avocados star
Uruapan is the state of Michoacan's second largest city. Although located well inland, the city and surrounding area has a decided tropical feel to it. Known as the "World Capital of Avocados," Uruapan is much more than that and I don't mean just the macadamia nuts that it also produces.

Zamora the City of Chongos star
Every December, Zamora, the third largest city in Michoacan, is home to a chongos festival. However, the city has much more to offer than just its milk curd dessert. The sanctuary, the cultural centers, the sprawling Hidalgo market, the Mercado Morelos, and the main plaza are all worth seeing.
