Colonial Queretaro

A May 2001 trip to Tequisquiapan by lobosolo

Quote: Tequisquiapan (or Tequis as friendly called by locals) is a colonial town about 100mi NW of México City. It was founded around the thermas of which a few are still around, try them for relaxation. The people are very friendly and the food is tasty, but don´t expect it to be very good for dieting.

Colonial Queretaro

Overview

Quote:
The weather is always warm and ideal for a constant suntan. The ambiance is always calm for there is no hurry going anywhere, everything is close and the colonial traditions are still imbedded in town. A terrific thing for breaking away from the stress cities.

Quick Tips:

Bring your sun tan lotion, avoid cars and dont put your cellular on for a weekend and youll come back home with a new energy on you.

Best Way To Get Around:

Get to Mexico city airport and drive or ride a bus for two and a half hours on highway 57 to the North (it is actually going Northwest).

Hotel

Quote:
A nice hotel with swimming pool just in the center plaza of the typical colonial town. Accomodations are cozy and colonial with typical old fashioned furniture. There are about 28 rooms including 6 suites. Rates vary but include food, which is very good. Most of the rooms have a view of the pool, which, by the way, also has a swing set.

Restaurant

Quote:
Main attraction is local Mexican food, but we did also have paella, which is really from Spain. Menu for meals gives you four platters with some of them a couple of choices each. Coffee, and extra drinks are not included. If you have a sweet tooth like mine, don't miss the natilla.

Arts and crafts

Attraction

Quote:
A colorful array of woven baskets, rustic furniture, wool, and rattan for a wide variety of uses that go from decorative to full service art objects. If you have trouble getting someone to send the merchandise to you, I can help you get someone to deliver it in the continental US.

Trolebus

Attraction

Quote:
A bus ride on a decorated bus that looks like the cable cars of San Francisco. You'll go around the city with some markings with historical substance. You will come around some parks with interesting activities for the kids and a couple of riding horses and a camel.
