Your Ultimate Weekend Guide to Puebla, Mexico

Weekend Guide to Puebla, Mexico

Only two-hours southeast of Mexico City is the colonial city of Puebla, mostly recognized for its colorful history – the city’s historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site  –  plenty of gorgeous churches, the best mole poblano, and Talavera, a ceramic unique to the region. And during our recent visit, we discovered the city has stylish, design-minded accommodations, restaurants, and shops – offering visitors like us far more to discover than historic buildings and delicious food. Here is our weekend guide on where to go, stay, eat, and drink.
