We would like to make a side trip while returning to Mexico. The time frame is early next week. There seems to be something going on in Guanajuato as hotels are booked but if you know of a place there let me know. Maybe north of Guadalajara would be good, Jalostotitlan, where the inlay woodworkers are but how do you find them there? Or still over in southeast in Mich for Delores Hidalgo? Is there anything in Saltillo to see? Any suggestions we will take...we have two or three days to be road warriors. Thanks.
Recently unearthed and restored is the Cañada de la Virgen archeological site and pyramid located about a 20 minute drive southwest of San Miguel de Allende beyond the presa or reservour. The area is tighly controlled and only accessable when escorted by an official tour guide. The site only became open to the public less than a year ago. It's a sight to behold. If you go be prepared for a mile hike to the site from the tour bus drop-off point and the hike back to the bus. The altitude is high and a water bottle and good shoes are recommended. The walking tour and climb up the steep and tricky steps of the pyramid is not for the faint of heart. You can learn more about the site here. I took these multi-exposure shots on October 8, 2011, at about 3pm when the sky was obscured by clouds and rain from hurricane Jova located off the pacific coast of Mexico.
