A few miles outside of town on the road to Dolores there are some thermal hot springs that are well worth the visit. There are several different establishments. We prefer La Gruta as it has a really tropical setting and a great restaurant. Accessible by bus or taxi..
Tuesday Market (or Tiangus)
located on the outskirts of town and well worth the visit if you haven’t been. It is a local Mexican market where there is everything from fruits & vegetables to television remote controls and car batteries. Very colorful! All day Tuesday. Accessible by taxi.
