Taxco is a relatively small and picturesque village located on north of the state of Guerrero, Mexico. Built on a
mountain, the climate is very pleasant and the views of the city and the surrounding area are amazing. I almost felt like
I was on another planet when I visited Taxco for the first time. The colonial architecture and narrow cobblestone streets
add to the enchanting experience and give you photo opportunities around every corner.
Sights in Taxco include the Church of Santa Prisca, the House of Culture, and the Museum of Viceregal Art. But perhaps
the most important reason for visiting Taxco is for its silver.
Taxco Silver Jewelry
Taxco is probably most famous for its silver industry. The city is bursting with jewelry stores and markets where you
can buy some of the most fabulous silver jewelry for some of the cheapest prices in the world. When you want to make a
purchase, the merchants simply pile all of your jewelry onto a scale and charge you by the weight. Everything is the same
price, regardless of whether it is the most intricately crafted piece or a silver paper weight!
If you have bought silver jewelry in your own country, it very well could have come from Taxco. Many jewelry businesses
all over the world import silver from Taxco.
Taxco does not have an airport (it's on a mountain, afterall. . .). However, you can fly to
Cuernavaca and take a bus to Taxco. Better yet, from Acapulco spend
A Day In Taxco.
