Points of Interest in Taxco

At the center of the city lies the Santa Prisca Cathedral, built during the 1700s. There is a statue of Jesus at the very top of the town, called "Cristo." The view from up there is amazing.

There is a silver "museum" in a beautiful building called Casa Borda which also serves as a cultural centre. Located on the main plaza itself. In 2010, much of the building was being renovated, but there was a nice exhibit of silver jewelry.

Ten kilometers to the south is Taxco el Viejo (Old Taxco). In pre-Hispanic times, the village was the most important area of the Mesoamerican indigenous community.

About Taxco

Activities

Get a lot of exercise walking up the steep streets.

There is a gondola (teleferico) than can take you up to a fancy hotel called Monte Taxco, with great views and a decent bar/restaurant. There is not much else to see/do up there.

Food

Try the Pozolé. It is a soup-like dish of large corn pieces called hominy, pork rind/fat, avocado, and some crispy tortilla crumbles. Try it at the top of the hill above the small covered market which sells silver. It's cheap, tasty, and filling. It's a great dish to try if you want to experience Mexican food. Thursdays are the traditional pozolé days during which the red and green varieties are typically served. The white style is served the other days of the week.

  • Cafe Balbas, Avenida de los plateros 198 (Beside of the Hotel Loma Linda),  762 6271435, e-mail: efbalbas@hotmail.com. from 6 PM until 1 AM. The Balbas Cafe next to Hotel Loma Linda has been voted the best cafe in all of Taxco. They serve everything from sandwiches to crepes to full dinner meals, as well as alcohol if coffee doesn't do it for you. The terrace in the back overlooking the mountains and the city is beautiful. Prices are cheap, around $60 pesos at most for any item, many are in the $35-range.

Drinks

  • Cafe Sasha, Juan Ruiz de Alarcon #1 (In front of the Hotel Los Arcos). This place has a very nice, alternative atmosphere. The staff is friendly and you can sit at the small balcony and have some drinks. It is really interesting, because Taxco itself seems to be a little bit more old-ish. But here you can find your small alternative part of the city. Also you can find vegetarian food here.

Shopping

Silver! There is very beautiful silver, mostly all engraved with "MEXICO 925" or "TAXCO 925" The silver shops away from the centro are where you can bargain. You will be charmed and ecstatic at all the beautiful silver, but will get tired of looking at it in 4 hours or less. You will also be approached by men, women, and children selling you items in the centro (plaza centrál). If you are not interested in being bothered, do not give them any eye contact. Once one finds you are slightly interested, all the other vendors will come try to sell their goods.
