Pozos – A Different Side Of Tourism In Mexico

iglesia 13

Located at 7,500 feet above sea level and just 25 miles from San Miguel de Allende is the quiet and peaceful city of Pozos, Guanajuato.  While this was at one time a colonial city from 1576 to 1910, it became a Historical National Monument in 1982 by the Mexican Government.  Because of this, it is now visited by tourists on a frequent basis.

There is a rich Pozos history for tourists from all over to experience.  Between ex-haciendas, old ruins, chapels and underground mine tunnels, there are more than enough adventures that await you in this exquisite city.

Many enjoy taking a mountain bike to the top of Cerro Pelon, which is located 8,200 feet above sea level.  Atop Cerro Pelon rests the historical chapel that is a must see within the city.  If you are not into mountain biking, you can rent a horse and get to the top.  Regardless, you are sure to experience a great deal on your way up.

Unlike many tourist areas of Mexico, Pozos is never hot in the summer.  While there are many sunny days, it is not going to give you the warm climate many think of with Mexico.  If you go during the winter expect cold nights and cool days.  Because of this, you will find chats next to the fire pit are quite popular during the winter.

If you are looking for a terrific hotel that boasts high quality food in regards to Pozos restaurants, Posada De Las Minas is the place to be.  The hotel and restaurant has actually been reconstructed from a classic mansion in the historic center of the “pueblo fantasma.”

Pozos is a terrific place to get away from things and enjoy a peaceful stay while experiencing a great deal of history within Mexico.  From old ruins to chapels to underground mine tunnels, there is plenty to keep you busy.
