After our first sto, Jalpan, we continued on to Xilitla, also in the state of San Luis Potosi. From here we were going to explore a few interesting attractions. At first sight, Xilitla was not what we had envisioned for our vacation: it was really cold, rainy, and the town really was rather ugly! (That was the day we didn't have electricity in our hotel as well.)
This, for instance, was the view from our hotel:
However, it looked a lot better the next day in the sun:
We stayed in Xilitla two nights and it definitely grew on me. It is an important commercial town for the region and it was constantly bustling with activity. We stayed at the Hotel Aurora which was quite nice - especially after we got the electricity back! Xilitla is a good place for visiting sights such as the Magical Castle of Edward James, the Sotano de las Golondrinas, and others. We ate several meals at a restaurant named Cayo's, which was used to cater to tourists.
