This the river Rio Mezquites just outside of Cuatrocienegas.
Love that enormous pool full of gin clear spring-fed agua.
Actually Pozo or Poza is correct. It is referred to by both names. Pozo is a well, Poza is puddle or pool.
I swam at the river and also in Parras at the spring fed pool (see photo above).
Several of us have stayed at El Farol. I think I was the first to introduce it to this website. It is an excellent hotel. Nice restaurant. Lots of history in that town and a few hidden secrets near there.
My favorite room at El Farol. First time I went there I called ahead. In fact a friend in Cuatrocienegas had recommended the place to me. When I called I asked if they could arrange for me to get a horse so I could ride out to "the secret place." I also asked if they could locate a guitar and have it in my room when I arrived. When I got there they had the guitar waiting for me. Then they gave me a number so I could call a man about that horse I played that guitar all night on the chair you see in the photo. Life is good in Parras!
That’s gotta be pushing 25 miles by horseback.

My Mexican neighbor is fascinate by Parras & the winery. He's a YouTube fanatic. He owns 5 acres of green eating grapes just south of Zac (Ojo Caliente) that his father farms for now.
My neighbor has not been to Mexico in over 10 years. He's says I know more about Mexico than he does. Once they cross again it will be for good. He's crossed 8 times with coyotes. 1 son of his is DACA, the other son has a US passport. When this son graduates high school they're done with the US. I tell him I'm coming to hang when me moves back...and stress I'm dead serious.
He calls himself the crazy Aztec. He wants to start growing and producing wine in a few years. I told him all about Parras.
We drink ALOT of Modelo & Tequila together. I'm often partying in the backyard with all his Mexican friends speaking my gringo Spanish When we visited Zac last summer we took his youngest son to and from to visit family.
I figure all my Intel I give on Mexico is payback and thanks for all I've gotten.
Thanks for that info! We stayed there too and loved it.
Off street parking and a cold ass pool.

We stayed in room 9 in the inner courtyard.
Those old original rooms are awesome.
That looks prettty good. Thanks.
On google it's under Poza and he wanted the map link. Just trying to help.
Right behind the hotel is the sweetest plaza in Zacatecas, Jardin Juarez. Don't think there is a back door? But you can go round the corner and cut thru Menson de Jobito hotel to access. Great Argentinian restraunt
in that plaza that in the back corner, effectively straight behind the hotel.. If you're feeling adventurish you can go to Pinky's the gay bar too
we got caught out one day, I think Sunday early?, looking for drinks in the plaza and ended up at Pinky's as everything else was closed. My friend from Zac was not 100% sure it was a great place to take our kids, but in the end it was empty & we had 2nd floor window seats over looking the plaza. We had a blast.
Click on the Santo Bar link in Google maps and they have a 360 degree pic of the plaza.
Says there is a craft bar bar there but I did not notice that.
A walk up the street then goes past the hotel and the Eden Mine or the other direction for all the downtown action.

You really need at least 3+ days in Zac to do it right! Red Mole (Mole rojo) is a Zac specialty and I travel for Mole!!!
We just put together a 10 day Christmas break trip down to San Jose del Cabo!!!
Those who live in snow country can understand the need for a warm beach in the winter.
No going to even bother visiting San Lucas this time as we really like San Jose. We plan on visiting Playa Palmilia most day plus Chilleno. Going to rent a car for 2 days and taking day trips to Cabo Pulmo and Todos Santos.
Past that my wife is going to Spain and France for spring break so I'm thinking about a drive down to San Carlos with my daughter for a few days.
We bought a house in Fort Collins and I need a few Mexican things for the house.
I want to buy a bigger outside smiling Mexican sun for the top front of our house and so driving is a must for that.
Is there s local's craft market in San Carlos or Guaymas?
I am currently on Hotel Don Miguel, the largest in town, secure parking for $ 900 pesos a day, but in previous visits I stayed on Arroyo de la Plata Hotel. Closer to historic center and cheaper, secure parking under roof in both places.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've done the mine tour where I was a translator for the woman from NZ trying to talk to the "english speaking" guide.
I've rejected the idea of the Teleferico.
We'll check out the other stuff for sure.
