There is small talk… and then there is deep, intimate conversation. Small talk gives you an impression, but intimate conversation results in knowing and understanding and friendship.
If you want to feel Mexico’s heartbeat and to see into its soul, you will have to leave the iconic beach resorts of the masses and travel inland to its award-winning (and less visited) Colonial cities and villages. It is in the highlands, west of Mexico City, that you will find the “old country” with its cobblestone streets, colorful architecture, local recipes, siestas, and artisans. It is also where you will leave the small talk behind and engage in the deeper conversations that result in knowing.
Here are five authentic and gorgeous stops Niteo makes along the colonial loop of Mexico’s heartland that lets the traveler experience authentic Mexico.
