^ there are many colonial cities across Mexico, it's amazing. I visited Puebla (not a small city) but the historic core is very impressive!

Others I've heard to be beautiful are: Zacatecas, Morelia, Guanajuato etc.

Also if you never been, I'd highly recommend Mexico city ! It has an assemblage of different sorts of architecture! Check out my thread

I heard of Zacatecas (have a friend who's crazy about this city lol). Actually I was exploring Mexico city for two weeks - you're right - it does have an awesome architecture..I'll post some pics I took there sometime soon, just need to sort them out first

Zacatecas in the summer the temperature may reach the 100 degrees Fahrenheit about 38 degrees Celcius, but during the winter it may come down to the low 30's Fahrenheit the low single units Celcius. The city is situated at the foot at the mountains. Guanajuato is hot during the summer and mild during the winter, it is also located at the foot of the mountains.
