... the layout, architecture and aspect is very similar. There is a temporary beach set up there for the locals. This city is the only one in Mexico that was founded by the Spanish. The others were all taken over from Aztecs, Mixtecs and the others and then had the Spanish style overlaid. We left our luggage at the Hotel del Portal just near the Zocalo or central plaza.
