La Puerta del Camino Real

Tour Details



This exploration of La Puerta del Camino Real, or Mexico's Silver Road, began and ended in Zihuatanejo.  We stayed in Guanajuato City, Zacatecas City, Real de Catorce, San Luis Potosi, Mineral de Pozos and Morelia.  The content of this tour included the indigenous roots of what later became a intercontinental trade route that connected the world, first through the Port of Veracruz, and later through the Port of Acapulco, with all routes intersecting in Mexico City.  Our new tour for March 2023 begins in Mexico City, with a flight home from Zacatecas, to save from back-tracking.  Please click here to learn more about this tour!

DAY FIVE - Zacatecas City

This morning, we walked to Mina el Eden, then boarded a tram car for La Bufa.  From there, we had lunch at an eclectic and fun restaurant, then tried to visit the Rafael Coronel Museum, only to discover it was closed!  No matter - we explored more of the city and returned the following day!
