Visit Guanajuato But Do Not Forget Your Mexican Insurance

Guanajuato in Central Mexico offers visitors something different from the usual beaches or mountains.  It has a museum packed with mummies that were naturally formed within the local cemetery.  This is not for the squeamish as it could be described as a creep sight.

In days gone by, there was a law which required family members of those buried at the cemetery to be charged an annual fee.  If this fee was not settled for five consecutive years, the body would be exhumed to allow for the crypt to be re-used.

Visit The Silver Capital Of Mexico

Taxco de Alarcon is known as the silver capital of Mexico and is one of those delightful little colonial towns situated in the Guerrero state mountains.  It can be reached from Acapulco or Mexico City.

The history of Taxco de Alarcon is an interesting one.  It was during 1522 that the Spanish conquistadors discovered that the residents of the regions around Taxco used silver to pay tribute to the Aztecs.  This discovery resulted in their decision to usurp the region and start mining.  Don Jose de la Borda arrived in the area during the 1700s and became an extremely wealthy man purely from mining silver.  He commissioned the constructions of the Santa Prisca Church, which today forms the centerpiece of the town square.

All You Need To Know About Tipping In Mexico

Although it is customary to tip in Mexico, it is not always a requirement.  When you make the decision to tip or not to, you should bear in mind that most staff in the service industry in Mexico do not earn very high salaries, so if you are happy with the service you receive, you should show your appreciation by tipping.  This will not only prompt the staff to offer good service, but you may also receive preferential treatment during your stay.

It is acceptable to tip in either dollars or pesos, though pesos would be more practical for the locals.  The amount you choose to tip is entirely at your discretion, but there are a few rules concerning this.

Plan A Trip To The Xochicalco Ruins in Mexico

The ancient ruins of Xochicalco are a fantastic opportunity to visit a historical site which was inhabited between 200 and 900 AD.  It includes an observatory, temples and an outstanding museum.

The city was originally founded during 200 AD.  It became an important city and around 700 AD was thriving.  It was regarded as a military area and the warriors governed it.  The patron saint of the city was Tlaloc, the God of Rain.  Archaeological evidence that has been found indicates that during 900 AD, the city was either abandoned or destroyed, possibly burned down.  However, the locals appear to have been aware of the city and treated the ruins as sacred.  The city was lost during the Spanish colonial era.
