For lovers of colonial-era Mexico, it’s hard to find a more wondrous spot than Puebla. Some 128km (79 miles) east of Mexico City, this is a place where a magnificent cathedral, numerous churches, a fantastically well-preserved city center, and countless buildings sporting painted ceramic tiles all compete for one’s attention. Add to this an increasingly vibrant nightlife and art scene and it becomes a must-visit for culture lovers. As soon as you settle into your hotel Puebla is a joy to discover. Nestled among volcanoes along an inland route that connects Acapulco and Veracruz, Puebla gets its share of day-trippers. But this is truly a place that unfolds slowly and rewards those who take time to absorb its charms. Though larger than most colonial cities, it has a surprisingly uncongested feel to it, even if the bustling markets and the Puebla hotels are often full.
