If you missed our previous video, we are back in our Jeep home and exploring the magnificent region of La Huasteca Potosina! La Huasteca is an area that overlaps seven Mexican states, but we are exploring the part within the state of San Luis Potosí. It is so beautiful!
During this final part of our trip driving south through La Huasteca, we stay at our favorite campground EVER–in almost eight years of full-time travel. Hint: we could swim in our “front yard” in mid-November.
We get to see another Pueblo Mágico (Magic Town), though this one required a pretty freaky drive to the top of a mountain. I found myself asking Eric, “Are you really going to drive up there?” He handled the tight turns and pedestrian crowds like a champ.
And we also toured a surrealist sculpture garden created by an eccentric Englishman, nestled deep in the tropical jungle. Las Pozas is well-known now, for good reason. But something happened at the very beginning of the tour that made our visit unusual (and quite challenging for our four-year-old).
Ready to go? Strap on your seatbelt and enjoy this week’s video!
After La Huasteca Potosina, we made our way through the eye-popping mountains of the Sierra Gorda. After one night in Bernal, one of our favorite towns in interior Mexico, we arrived in the city of Guanajuato for another extended stay through Christmas.
Just wait until you see the colors, sounds, food, and buildings in our next video. We thought Guanajuato was going to be amazing, but we had no idea we would love it this much. Mexico just keeps getting better and better.
