    Do you know Mineral de Pozos already?

    If your answer is YES, you will agree that this place is a “gold mine” for those who wish to live a pleasant experience and know incredhoteles-boutique-de-mexoco-entretare-un-fin-de-semana-en-mineral-de-pozos-3ible, full-of-history places.

    Regarded as one of the 111 “Magical Towns” in Mexico, this site which was formerly known by its important mining activity has focused more on tourism; that is why every time more people visit and fall in love with this place that hides within its landscapes a magical and mysterious touch that surrounds you to enjoy a stay in complete relaxation.

    Located just a tad over an hour away from Queretaro and San Miguel de Allende and 2 hours away from capita Guanajuato, this is an excellent spot for an escapade from routine. For more adventurous Mexico City dwellers willing to spend an incredible weekend, let me tell you that there is a road project of three and a half hours from the country capital.

    Let’s plan a weekend at Mineral de Pozos.

    Friday evening

    Arrival

    The firs postcard this Magical town gives you is the cupola of the central church, called Saint Peter Parish, a building containing many years of tradition.

    As you will surely arrive tired by the trip, you will want to get installed in the hotel to rest a little and recharge energy.

    Hotel Boutique Casa Diamante opens its doors for you offering comfort and warmth to all its guests with seven rooms, pool, parking lot, sauna, library, gallery and movie hall, truly the best lodging option.hoteles-boutique-de-mexico-un-fin-de-semana-en-mineral-de-pozos

    After unpacking, you have to start knowing the town with a walking tour downtown, about 15 minutes from the hotel. There you will admire the Juarez Garden surrounded by galleries, art stores and an endless array of items representative of the town.

    After this tour you can decide between looking for one of the many gastronomic offerings or heading back to the hotel, where the Contemporary Mexican Cuisine restaurant offers a varied menu highlighting select regional products.

     

     

    Saturday

    After waking up and having a rich breakfast, enjoying the hotel facilities will be ideal. The pool is the epicenter of all the activities, featuring its own bar to refresh on hot days. For the lovers of open spaces, there is also a volleyball court.

    Ruinas de los Cinco Señores – Ruins of the Five Lords, where you pay a symbolic fee for unlimited access and walk through patios and landscapes with unrestored ruined arches, fascinating for archeologists, painters and photographers.

    Mina de Santa Brígida – Mine of Saint Bridget, with its three towers surrounded by cactus and bushes, where you can watch wells so deep that seem to have no end and the mineral aroma can still be felt.

     

    Before going back to the hotel, do not forget to buy one of the famous dolls dressed with regional costumes, made in the “Manos Creativas” shop, managed by local women who help generate income for their families.

    Lunch time! The hotel restaurant will await you to share its star specialty: “Diamond Chicken Breast”, served with a Vopper, home-produced beer, and an artisan ice-cream with seasonal fruit.
