questions about Puebla

Jump to last reply

thanks to the feedback i received here my wife and i have decided to stay in Puebla for a week in April. Our plan is to fly into Mexico City, bus it to Puebla, and then bus it back for the flight home. We will be staying in La Purificadora which is near the San Francisco church a few blocks from zocalo. i do have a few questions as this city is unlike any i've ever visited

1. There are a few places to eat where we'll be staying but is there a street or area nearby that will give us lots of options? Someone on another forum mentioned a restaurant row downtown but i wasn't able to dig up any details.

2. I'm having a hard time trying to figure out how we'll get around the city. I hear that taxis are cheap but are they plentiful? I wasn't able to dig much up on buses or the tourist ones.

3. Day trips from Puebla? (would love to see some ruins) Cholula was mentioned elsewhere.. dunno if i've be able to talk her into Mexico City

4. My wife and i love international cuisine when we travel. What does Puebla have to offer? (ie: Spanish tapas, French, German, Carribean fare, Indian, etc.) We both LOVE mexican but don't want to eat it every time.

Any other tips or tricks would be much appreciated
