I'm going to San Luis Potosi with my fiancee and our 4 year old daughter, i was wondering if it costs to go and swim and look at Puente de dios? How do i get to that certain spot? I look at pictures and videos on the internet and it looks beautiful but i was just wondering if it costs anything??
I am planning a trip where I will stay in a hostel in Guanajuato and will have 9 days of visiting time. Since I am making Guanajuato my home base, I would like to visit other cities near by as day trips.
I know nothing about these places, but realize, at least that some are smaller than others and of course,and perhaps several could be visited in one day, while others would take several days.
Nonetheless, I am on a limited budget and so must return to Guanajuato to sleep. Also, I do not have a car, so would likely take a bus.
With that in mind, What are your recommendations? My thought was the following: Guadalajara ( I know, more than one day, but possibly city center highlights?), Queretaro, Morelia/ Patzuaro, Zacatecas. San Luis Potosi, Aquaclaientes,San Miguel de Allende. I have read that Dolores Hidalgo is very important historically, but architecturally, not of that much interest, but I am not sure.
I assume I will spend 3 days or so seeing Guanajuato as well and can, of course see it in small chunks of time each day as well. I have a lot of energy and don't mind long days, but am I just crazy to try to see all of this in my short time?
I really appreciate your help.
Thank you for any suggestions.
the holiday inn that is mentioned, is that the one on the same highway that takes you to mexico city?
Are there subject organizations in the city where a visitor from the USA might meet and exchange experiences?
What opportunities, if any, are there to rent a room in a safe neighborhood from a private person for a couple of days to a week in the city, and what might be the rent rates?
does anyone have any info on visiting this town/site??? i will be in tampico, mexico for a month and i know aquismon, tamul falls and sotano is close to ciudad valles.
i can easily catch a bus to ciudad valles but from there, is there any public transportation to aquismon?? how long? how much?? what about accomodations? i am used to tuk-tuks and collectivos if similar modes of transport are cheap options, and camping or hostel like atmospheres are an option too.
and from aquismon...whats the transport options to sotanos and the tamul falls? again, how much is a reasonable price? i'll have a buddy with me too.
also i can get by with very basic spanish, and i always pass for a local if i don't open my american accented mouth.
thanks in advance.
i'm new and am not sure if i am posting this properly.

We're thinking of staying at the Hotel Real Plaza and want to know if it's a good place to stay and if the area is good. Any suggestions of where else we might stay? Also, we can't seem to find any web site where we can make a reservation for that the Hotel Real Plaza. How can we go about doing this if we don't speak Spanish even if we were to phone. If it's not close to the center of the old part of the city, any idea what a taxi would cost?
Hi. We have lived in Ajijic for 7 years and it's getting really crowded! We're considering other areas of Mexico. We spent a little time in June in San Luis Potosi and were quite charmed by it. Does anyone have any idea how many English speaking residents live in San Luis Potosi? We certainly enjoy our Mexican friends and neighbors here in Ajijic but we also enjoy socializing with our English speaking friends. Any light anyone could shed on the situation there would be appreciated.
