Where to spend a single week in Mexico. Thatīs an easy one for those who have never been to Mexico before. There is only one choice.

Great authentic Mexican food just as you imagine it to be
A small community of only 2,200 souls but authentic Indian, Spanish, Mexican and Anglo influences
Traditional adobe architecture that is absolutely certain to fulfill your preconceived notions of what Mexico should look like.
No narcos, border agents, bothersome border crossings, non-English speakers, cabbage pickers
Yes, there is only one place:
Mesilla, New Mexico
Mesilla is the place Mexico wishes it was as well as the place you think Mexico is.
Who the hellīs going to know the difference? Most Americans think New Mexico is in Mexico anyway. Just tell them you were in Mesilla when they ask about your your trip SOB. If they look puzzled, just say,"You donīt mean to tell me you donīt know where Mesilla is do you?"
This way you get to support your local, By God USofA economy without going to that crappy place on the other side and possibly offending some armed Minuteman Good Ole Boy with a hankering to render justice when you come back.
And, get this, Mesilla is so close to the border that I understand an open air toy train tour is planned as soon as the wall is finished with authentic gun battles between heroic border guards and narcos and coyotes. You and the kids can thrill as thundering posses of brave Minutemen chase hapless illegal swine back toward that dreadful place you could have visited instead of the place the real Mexico should be.
