So, you’re teaching English in Mexico? Great choice. Sloshing Caribbean waves and roaring Pacific surf give way to high volcanos and dusty agave cacti fields in this wondrous nation. And between the lot are some seriously stunning towns and cities, some of which you simply can’t miss: 


Guanajuato really is a rabbit warren of a city. There’s a maze of dried-up riverbeds that have been converted to traffic lanes running through the subterrane of the surrounding hills. They serve to link the hillside barrios, which cascade down from carved rock bluffs to dashes of breeze-block homes painted vivant red and purple. The center has the usual array of little plazas and a spire-topped cathedral, but it’s further adorned with a whitewashed university complex from the 1800s, and hidden statues of Don Quixote. Eager to tread some hiking trails while teaching English in Mexico? This is surely the place, with dusty reserves of mountains and cactus-filled valleys spreading out all around.  


There’s nothing quite like the pinkish glow of the sun setting across the Zocalo of Morelia. Sit with a salt-lime Corona and watch the world go by, as the sounds of plucking Spanish guitar twists through the plane trees and mingles with the scents of sizzling tacos under arched arcades from the 1700s. The centerpiece of the city is the looming Morelia Cathedral, which is often hailed as the finest in the whole of the Americas. Stray a little further from that and you’ll discover districts that are effortlessly charming, with centuries-old aqueducts running overhead, and purple jacaranda trees blooming atop fountain-babbling squares.
