Morelia and more!!

| Private Reply
Ahh-Morelia, one knows its there and the draw is, it’s talked about but what I hear is mostly it’s not an expat haven nor does it carry enclave features likened by the Norte Americanos. But one thing I do keep hearing is its authentic Mexican charm rooted and remaining true to its tradition. To me, this smacks with appeal.

As of late, I’ve been calling a number of hotel’s mainly in or within walking distance of El Centro Histórico. Never been to Morelia and although I searched MC and found a very nice list of about 30 or more hotels provided by Jen, it would be nice to know just where abouts would be the best location to rent, especially if we don’t want to drive all over the place for the first 10 days of our visit. We’d like to situate ourselves within a very short walking distance of the action, shopping, night life, restaurants, and Centro Histórico where the “locals” enjoy their favorite restaurants and more. Would this be considered a good idea?

As much as we’d like to be centered within short walking distance of what is popular in town, if it were you, would the noise or any other factor leave for you to want something a bit different? One thing about Morelia, its been my experience over the years, that one doesn’t hear enough about it except for a few bits and pieces here on and there, and every now and then on MC. Its mystique is also its appeal.

I’m listing some of the hotels with addresses which will hopefully bring about someone’s input about favorite location, not so favored locations and perhaps a few restaurants near those locations. Honestly, we really enjoy asking, which is the most popular restaurant most of the locals like to eat, particular to certain areas. This has worked well for us in many instances in the past. If it were possible to find something reasonable and very close-by with a small kitchenette, this would be very nice!

We’ll be looking for Salsa lessons, dining, dancing and cocktails while touring and sucking up the atmosphere good ol’Mexico provides. Patzcuaro is also a must and needing the kind of attention memories beg for. Accommodations, and same as above, would hit the spot.

We’ll rent a car and take care of some business for a few days in GDL, then take a bus to Morelia, cab to El Centro and to our accommodations. When necessary we’ll rent a car there whenever needed or just take cabs. We are really excited and its about time this is happening for us …….. Gracias!!
