I use Cruise Critic extensively for all aspects of cruise planning. In this post I’ll go into detail about how I use the Cruise Critic forums to find cheap parking and plan shore days.
This was our favorite “hang out” town on our last Mexico trip. Guanajuato has just the right mix of colonial architecture, varied geography, great climate, interesting sites, and just enough tourists to make it a fun place to spend a few days (or more.)
Our first major destination on our Mexican ghost towns trip was the old mining town of Real de Catorce. The spirits are kept a bay during the day by the crush of day trippers, but the area’s spiritual energy can be felt as dusk falls, or as you hike into the abandoned ruins that surround the town.
