Taxco has got to be one of Mexico's most unique cities. Famous everywhere, Taxco is known as the silver capital of the world. This easy drive of less than four hours (slightly more by bus, from Acapulco) on a modern well kept toll road will take you back in time. Taxco is one of those quaint, picture perfect towns that never seem to age. If it weren't for the hordes of taxis and electric poles, you could easily imagine you had jumped into a time machine and gone back a century or two. The huge church dominates the landscape and the narrow, winding cobblestone streets are seemingly from a different era. There are quaint inns and B&B's, many with incredible views, so you may want to schedule an over night trip.
The zocalo, or town square, is a great starting point from which to explore Taxco.
