Real De Catorce Trip Report

Well, sort of. It's a charming mostly mining ghost town that's hard to get to. Parts of the mostly bad movie "The Mexican" was filmed there, with one hilarious scene by Brad Pitt. That's the report. Mostly I wanted to post this pic, my favorite of all my Mexico pictures just to add little levity during these otherwise not so fun times.

The essence of Mexico

Baldone: Not sure if this is the thread to ask this question, but what do you think of the designation "Pueblos Magicos?" Has that spoiled the towns, and is the designation rational for the most part? Is there a list of them onlline?

Probably as good a place as any to ask. Generally, I find the PM designations to be quite useful in trip planning and a good starting point for additional research. Some of the Pueblos might not be as magical as others, but overall I think it's a worthwhile project. I've probably visited close to half on the list. Some towns may not deserve more than a few hours, others a couple nights. And like everything else in Mexico, government funding for such things can be subject to political favors. But I don't think the PM designations overall have spoiled very many towns. Some were already very popular and touristy, like Bernal in Queretaro for example. The majority are places few foreign tourists visit.ágicos
