Getting Oriented

Just outside Mexico City's borders are villages and towns where the pace is decidedly slower. Most are graced with colonial-era cathedrals. You could follow the example of the capitalinos (Mexico City residents) and visit one of their favorite weekend getaways, such as Tepoztlán or Valle de Bravo. Or leave the modern world behind for one of the ancient ruins an hour or so outside the capital.
