DescriptionThe first stop on your tour will be to the caves of Cacahuamilpa. You will enter through the huge rock door to contemplate the majestic scenery formed by the erosion of the water and the movements of the earth. You will then walk through the corridors and enjoy the sensation of penetrating the mountain to discover figures of animals, faces, buildings, and the customs of the Chontal tribes to honor their gods of the underworld. You will then go to the magical town of Taxco to eat at the Hotel Monte Taxco. After lunch, you can take the cable car (not included). Following this, you will take a walk through the city and visit the oldest mining center on the continent, which still stores silver mines that date back to the Colonial Era. Next, you will visit the ex-convent of San Bernardino and the Temple of Santa Prisca, which is a clear example of the fact that the town still retains its colonial style. The church there, which was built in approximately the 18th century, is of Novo-Hispanic Baroque style. You will then have free time to visit Humboldt House, where the famous German expeditionary stayed, and which is currently home to the Museo del Arte Virreinal. Following this, you will visit the different workshops, goldsmiths, and museums of this city (which is also called the City of Silver). At the conclusion of your educational and cultural day out, you will return to Mexico City at approximately 6:00PM.
