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 ...
In the morning we got up late and were deciding what to do first, but when we went downstairs, found that Elvia was making us a big breakfast with fresh fruit and coffee and Sr. Jaimes was waiting to take us into town. We took a walk around his neighborhood, then walked with him to his shop, where he sat us down outside across the street so we could sketch for a little bit. I think he was worried we were going to dart into traffic or something, but also he was just a ...
... and taking all the silver with us.
Taxco is on the map mostly for its silver. There is no way you can leave this place without a little silver souvenier, especially since you can get 925 silver (92.5% pure) for not many dollars, depending of course on what it is that you want.
The silver was of course one of our driving reasons to go there, because Mum and I are both silver wearers, but it turned out that Taxco is even more ...
