Colonial beauties, Hollywood stars and dream hotels on the Pacific Ocean

Mexico's colonial cities enchant with their shady squares, typical patios, magnificent palaces, townhouses with ornate balconies and pompously furnished churches.



In the 300 years of Spanish rule, almost every style from Gothic to Classicism has been perpetuated here. San Miguel de Allende, home to many artists inspired by the romantic city, is one of these colonial cities.

Queretaro, Morelia and Guanajuato are other worthwhile destinations. Each city has something special to offer here, something fascinating, almost magical.

The meeting of colonial gems is perfectly rounded off by unique hotels on the beaches of the Pacific coast of Zihuatanejo and Costa Careyes.

North of Mexico City, our starting point, begins the highlands of central Mexico - for centuries, mines here produced silver for the world.

In Mexico itself, the wealth was reflected above all in magnificent colonial architecture. You can get a first impression of the colonial splendor in the historic city center of Querétaro.

About 50 km to the north is San Miguel de Allende and belongs to the Pueblos Mágicos ("magical places"), which are distinguished as particularly worth seeing because of their typical and well-kept character and have been completely under monument protection since 1926.

Another highlight of the trip is Guanajuato, considered the most beautiful colonial city in Mexico. Its historical development and extraordinary beauty prompted UNESCO to declare Guanajuato a World Heritage Site.

Winding cobblestone streets, inviting plazas, open mine shafts and numerous palaces from colonial times characterize the cityscape. The birthplace of the famous Mexican painter Diego Rivera can also be visited.

The colonial route ends in Morelia, the capital of the state of Michoacán, where the climate is mild and life is leisurely. Simply an enchanting colonial city, built of pink sandstone.

To absorb the colonial flair even more intensely, we recommend staying in typical, small colonial houses of the Small Luxury Hotels, architectural and luxurious jewels of colonial Mexico.

Zihuatanejo has developed from a fishing village into a small town whose inhabitants live from tourism, but have hardly let themselves be taken out of their daily routine.

The town lives mainly from fishing. But many fishermen like to bring tourists with their small boats to the beautiful beaches of the Pacific.

Taste the fresh fish dishes in Zihuatanejo, drink a cool Michelada in a beach café, stroll through the picturesque town and just enjoy being here in Mexico... To feel the maritime flair of the Mexican Riviera even more intensely, we recommend a stay at The Tides Hotel.

Located directly on the beach of Playa La Ropa, it is hidden among palm trees and tall bamboo trees. Right next to it, but on a cliff, is the enchanting La Casa Que Canta.

Alternatively, as no less attractive, are the beaches of Puerto Vallarta and Costa Careyes. The romantic seaside resort of Puerto Vallarta owes its fame to Hollywood.

It was in 1964 that John Huston shot "The Night of the Iguana" here. Leading actor Richard Burton bought a house nearby, brought Elizabeth Taylor with him - and with her came the photographers and shortly thereafter the tourists.

Idyllically situated on the huge Bahía de Banderas, the old town on the Río Cuale in particular enchants every vacationer. Small, remote hotels surrounded by beautiful nature can be found about two hours by car from Puerto Vallarta, on the Costa Careyes.

At this gem of tranquility and bliss, we recommend the traditional and unconventional Hotelito Desconocido, the elegant Hotel Bel-Air Careyes and the exclusive Hideaway Las Alamandas.
