Taxco was our last stop on the trip and as we had money left we were looking forward to browsing the silver shops (or at least I was) and having a good New Year's Eve there.  We arrived and discovered that our hotel was a bit weird - they had the smallest ... Read more >

MEXICO | Friday, 23 Jan 2009 | Views [631]

The journey to Acapulco was longer and a lot more boring than we had anticipated.  We had imagined driving into Acapulco with "Going Loco..." booming out of the stereo and happy and ready to go loco.  Instead we entered smelly and unshowered, ... Read more >

The drive down to Puerto Escondido started out well enough - ie. the bit that ed got to drive, which was nice and straight and although a bit slow and frustrating, not bad at all.  We swapped at a small town along the way and about 5 minutes later ... Read more >

We drove on to Oaxaca on a shiny new toll road (we didn't appreciate it at the time, but later on realised just how great it was!) On the way we saw the tallest mountain in Mexico - Pico de Orizaba, which was snowy, but didn't seem like a 5000m+ ... Read more >
