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.

... Cuernavaca. On the way back we passed huge fields of roses of every color. We stopped and our guide bought a ton of them and gave a few to each student. Katie and I gave ours to our host mom. Also, on the way to Taxco, we passed by some venders of giant concha pan!!! It is this really cool and delicious round roll with some topping or something on it that makes it look like a seashell. The ones we found were GIANT!!! They taste quite delicious too.
