Comfort Inn Atlacomulco
Travel Blogs from Central Mexico and Gulf Coast
As we accumulate years less things can surprise us. Never had I imagined that would have to travel 10,000 km. to attend the wedding of a brother, but so it happened. Not only three other brothers, but all their families, they traveled also for taking a part in the event.
Althoug we spent at Atlacomulco three days (two nights), the two …
... the somewhat less tasteful plaza. The Church of Saint Joseph itself was unfortunately locked. Construction on this parish church began in 1776.
We figured we had given the historic parts of Morelia a fair shot, concluding things around 1600. Downloading pix and doing the blog took up the better part of 1.5H.
A quick shower to shed the day's grime and readied to go. The Brits, who call football their national sport, were last to arrive. Cameras not ...
... bus was pretty much full.
We took Rte 14 to Morelia. It is hilly country. Farming was fairly prevalent. Most people, myself included, nodded off for part of the journey.
Morelia is a city of some high six figure number. American stores popped up. Several military police went by but the city seems quiet.

We walked around the main pyramid structure at Tzintzuntzan. Its striking architectural feature is rounded segments. Other pyramids in ...
... an hour later. Three cabs took us into the cobbled stone streets to the Yolihuani Posada. Sid said our hotels are a bit of a roller coaster: good in MC, very nice here, a step down in Morelia and more basic near the butterflies before returning to good in MC.
It was more drop your bags and rendezvous with Sid for a walk into town, armed with Lonely Planet maps of the town. Cobblestone streets awaited us.
The rest of the trip is virgin territory to me ...
TravelPod Member ReviewsComfort Inn Atlacomulco Central Mexico and Gulf Coast
More than five years after of our visit, I do not think that my opinion may be usefull for present travelers. However, appart of what is evident through the photos, I will add that the hotel had a tennis court, pool, a computer hall and, what it was more important for the ladies, a very good service of hairdressing which was very satisfactory to many people. By summarize that experience I can say that it was very, largely much more pleasant that any expectative I could have preconceived, specially considering that I never before had ear the name of the place, Atlacomulco.
