    Getting to know Cholula on foot

    It is said that the best way to get to know a place is to do it “on foot”.

    Walking and exploring the corners of any place is always very rewarding, as you can closely experiment flavors, aromas, and textures. Cholula is a “Magical Town” with countless spots full of surprises and mysticism, so now I am pleased to present to you some recommendations that will make you enjoy touring them “on foot”.

    The Great Pyramid of Cholula or Tlachihuatepetl is the largest pyramid stone in the world, with 450 meters by each side, although in height it is surpassed by the famous Giza pyramid in Egypt. The Great Cholula Pyramid is also the largest in volume with 3,300 square meters. On top of it is the church of Our Lady of the Remedies, and although this church totally contrasts with the ancient beliefs of the first dwellers as it lies on the vestiges of an old culture, it is a symbol of the age of evangelization. It is a spot that complements the tour and the complement of one of the most representative symbols of Cholula.

    Be it by yourself or hiring the service of local guides, you must visit this site and explore it all the way if you are fit enough to reach the top of the pyramid, where views are unimaginable. First you have to stop by the “well of the wishes” where many people faithfully ask for their most wanted wishes.

    A tour by the churches of Saint Mary Tonatzintla and Saint Francis Acatepec is another option to walk; both buildings have beautiful wooden finishes with gold sheets and are considered true architectonic jewels due to their invaluable beauty and quality baroque style.

    In San Pedro Cholula you can find fine and beautiful red-mud pottery handicrafts, trees of life and talavera china. Touring its streets you will find from sophisticated galleries to traditional stands.

    Breakfast at “Cosme del Razo”, the most popular market in Cholula, is unmissable. Everything is prepared with fresh and preserver-free ingredients. It is one of the most traditional spots, located just one block away from historic downtown. Here a dozen merchants sell their products, creating an invaluable mixture of gastronomy and culture.

    Pack your luggage with comfy clothes and shoes and visit Cholula on foot; stay at  LA QUINTA LUNA a select member of  MEXICO BOUTIQUE HOTELS.

    Nacida en el centro del país, pero pasando la mayor parte de su vida en el bello estado de Nayarit adquirió el amor por esas tierras y por las bellezas naturales que estas poseen. Con la firme convicción de ser gestora del crecimiento turístico en el estado y en el país, estudio la Licenciatura en Gestión y Desarrollo Turístico en la Universidad Tecnológica de Nayarit. De manera inmediata al finalizar sus estudios se incursionó en el mundo de la hotelería en Puerto Vallarta Jalisco, una cuidad icono del país, bien conocida por su amplia oferta hotelera. Estar inmersa en ese ámbito y desempeñando diversos puestos en diferentes áreas, le permitió desarrollar sus habilidades de trabajo en equipo, de espíritu de servicio, así como aprender los estándares de operación de un gran complejo hotelero. Pasados un par años y por motivos personales se retiro de la hoteleria, pero la vida puso en su camino a Hoteles Boutique de México, una empresa con convicciones muy similares a las personales, las cuales involucran representar a México ante el mundo como una marca que garantiza escenarios memorables gracias a sus bellezas naturales poseídas, así como un excelente trato por parte de una población que por herencia es servicial y buena anfitriona. Actualmente funge como Chief E-Concierge and Travel Designer en la empresa antes mencionada, ofreciendo día a día al viajero la oportunidad vivir una experiencia diferente donde la atención a los detalles hacen una enorme diferencia.
