    We arrived to Tula and found a hotel after a bit of searching. We paid extra for air conditioning, but it was very obvious within an hour of arriving that an air conditioner was not needed, a heater maybe!

    We are going to another Pueblo Magico today. Its name is Mineral de Pozos and it is located in the state of Guanajuato. The scenery is not very good on the route, but I will show you what we saw!

    Hotels are much more expensive here that we normally stay in, but we finally found one that was only $39 US.

    Wikipedia: Mineral de Pozos is a city in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico, that had a great mining boom, but the decline of mining caused the depopulation of the town during this past century. On February 16, 2012, it was declared a "Pueblo Magico de México" as part of the federal program that recognizes people with great cultural, gastronomic or artistic wealth. It has become an important City in the state of Guanajuato due to its tourism since it became a Pueblo Magico. Distance to the capital Guanajuato 114.8 kms. Distance to León, Guanajuato 183 kms.

    This small town is located at over 7,000 feet in elevation, so no air conditioner is needed.

    Este pequeño pueblo está ubicado a más de 7,000 pies de altura, por lo que no se necesita aire acondicionado.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I thought that I had been here before, but after walking around some, I realize this is my first visit.
