Queretaro

After our one-day-stay in Celaya, we were driven by our host and her sister to the city of Santiago de Querétaro. After some hours of deciding what we would do next and how we would contact our next hosts we said our goodbyes and ventured the city. The city itself is a beautiful place to … More Queretaro

Celaya

Guadalajara

In Chapala we only stayed for one full day and the next we made our way forward. For Guadalajara we didn’t have a Couchsurfing host yet, but by the time we got out of the door of our host in Chapala we had made contact with a fellow who would accept us in his home. … More Guadalajara
