TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Agua Escondida Taxco
Beautiful residence. Rooms are very small but clean and well decorated. A bit spooky walking around at night as there are alot of dead ends with no lights and it is a very old building. A little overpiced. Staff were lovely but we had a language barrier as they couldn't speak English and we can't speak Spanish.

It was 12:30 when I got on an Estrella de Oro bus for Taxco. The bus is half full and very super comfortable with reclining seats and leg support. This bus ride cost be $148 which is less than half the taxi rides ...
... we get Sr. Jaimes, then takes us to Sr. Jaimes's shop. Sometimes people are just so helpful! Especially to two lost-looking girls.
Sr. Jaimes looked a little surprised to see us, but he said, no it's fine! It's great that you're here! Are you hungry? Do you like tacos? Tamales? How about some pozole? Pan? He and his son Rolando who works with him were just finishing up for the day, so they locked up, we all piled in the car and Rolando drove us to the house and for the rest of ...
... of the roads to downtown. They are one lane. We had to walk single file so we didn't get hit. Only little cars fit. Me and a few others skipped the church visit completely. I am tired of churches. I don't care. I also feel uncomfortable going into them during services, but apparently that is acceptable here. We went in and out of a million silver shops. So much to choose from! I really wanted some classic sliver with turquoise. The ...
