Taxco (roughly pronounced Tahss-koh) is an amazing little city to the near south of Mexico City. My buddy Rocco and I decided to make a day trip to see it, since he had never been there either. Taxco is mostly known for it’s silver, and there are TONS of silver shops there and in some ways this was the most touristy place I have been in all of Mexico. But the charm of this village in the hills is just jaw dropping, definitely worth a trip.

    BTW–what’s with all the VW bugs?

    The VWs are all taxis. Mexico has long been a very large manufacturer of VWs, especially bugs.

    For a library-school project, I just read some 1930s era guidebooks to Mexico. Even then, the writers commented that the town was becoming a bit precious. But it looks like a pleasant place to stroll.
