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!
