A few shots from our weekend drive to the small town of Namiquipa, a few hours outside the city of Chihuahua, MX. This state is perhaps the most underrated of beauts, even in a country filled with them. .

Powerful imagery in Chihuahua's city center. I love discovering amazing street art like this throughout the country. A different kind of beautiful compared to the more popular beaches. .

The murals of José Clemente Orozco line the main building of Hospicio Cabañas in Guadalajara. Each is a beautiful piece of work but the intense imagery plastered in the dome center is the most impressive to me; if not just for the sheer logistical nightmare of painting at that height and weird angles. .

The beautiful NH Collection hotel in Centro Historico Guadalajara was a perfect home base for our trip. Situated literally IN the zocalo, you can't find a better location. Easy access to most of the more popular sites can make you forget how nice the hotel itself is. Pro tips: eat at least one meal in the rooftop restaurant and ask the concierge about rates for private tours to Tequila. .

I don't think I will ever get tired of visiting different zocalos in Mexico. Every cathedral had its own unique and defining features that make it special. It's a great way to get some European feel without the European prices.

Close and personal with the blowfish chandelier at @bacalarcuu in the main dining area. Delicious seafood in a fun setting is always a welcome escape in the dead of summer. .

Refreshing happy hour drinks on a hot summer day. Nothing better when on vacation and every hour is happy hour! Thanks @lamielbar for the hospitality!

The Catedral de Chihuahua looms over the crowded zocalo on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Street performers and vendors draw as much of a crowd as some of the finer bars and restaurants in Chihuahua that fill the area. .

Sotol is another of Mexico's underrated libations, right up there with mezcal. Far from the famous flavor of tequila, this ancient alcohol generally has a more earthy, staunch flavor to it, making it one of my favorites. What better place to enjoy it than @la_sotoleria where you can try flights from different distilleries or even brave taking a shot of the dead viper infused kind.

Saturday at dusk in Chihuahua's zocalo and everyone is out enjoying the good weather. The city center provides a good mix of culture and capitalism; with everything from fashionable clothing stores to turn of the century houseums. .

VIP tequila tasting at @josecuervotequila in the town of Tequila. A great experience that goes way beyond the infamous, generic bottle you know too well from your college days. Learn a lot and get tipsy (read: drunk) in the process. Pro tip: ask your hotel if they can arrange for a private driver to take you to and from the distillery so you don't have to abide by a tour's schedule.

Photos from our recent trip back to the States (Florida to be exact) where we saw storms, rocket launches, baby alligators, and plenty of ocean. Love surprising Spanish speakers in the States with my still-far-from-perfect-but-better-than-most-gringos-Spanish. .

The Estrella de Puebla is one of the defining attractions for the city and definitely worth a visit. Great panoramic views of the city and close to some great shopping and nightlife in Angelopolis, it's a cheap and fun way to get to know the city. Pro tip: splurge on the "VIP" gondola to test your nerves with its glass floor.

Shot from within the Palacio de Gobierno in Guadalajara. Loved the grandeur and formality of this space. The dramatic murals lining the wall and ceiling in contrast to the stadium style seating made me think of old Roman politics with a modern twist.

A view from and a glimpse of Via Ferrata at Barrancas del Cobre in Chihuahua. The ziplines were fun but navigating through this obstacle course on the side of cliffs was much more intense. Highlight of the trip and something I'll never forget.

A famed mariachi center in Guadalajara is where tourists and locals alike congregate to enjoy some of the best groups in the land. "El Parian" is a staple in Tlaquepaque, where they keep the music and drinks flowing until the wee hours of the morning. .

Saturday's are for shopping if you're on vacation in San Miguel de Allende. Obviously more of a tourist activity, this reflects San Miguel's current vibe. Sometimes areas become touristy for good reasons though, and that rings true for this city. If you are going to go full tourist, you might as well support the local economy and buy anything from art to artesanal tequila to carefully hand crafted clothes.
