Hello, my fellow readers; I recently took my first trip to Morelia, and I wanted to share tidbits with you if you decide to visit.
I thought driving from Mexico City to Morelia would be a challenge; first, because I am terrified of Mexican highways and second, heading to an unknown place, but I was so wrong. The road was very relaxed, and I didn't feel unsafe at any moment. On our way to Morelia, we stopped for lunch at a barbacoa place called "El Carnalito," which loosely translates to "The Buddy." That was the best barbacoa I've ever had!
After lunch, we continued our four-hour journey to the beautiful Hotel de la Soledad. We made it to Morelia on a Sunday evening. To my surprise, the streets were packed with people, teenagers with their skateboards and bikes, couples sharing snacks and holding hands, and every storefront open for business.
The first thing that caught my eye was the stunning architecture of the 17th and 18th-century buildings surrounding the city, especially the famous aqueduct, known for its limestone construction and 253 arches. The aqueduct was built in 1785; this public infrastructure brought drinking water to the city during a two-year drought and provided work for the region's indigenous people.
When we finally arrived at the hotel, I was awestruck at the beauty of the place.
Hotel de la Soledad is a spectacular building with a lot of history. It has been in the hands of several owners throughout the years, and it has gone through several name changes. Most importantly, in 2016, Hotel de la Soledad underwent a complete redesign. They have become one of the best hotels in Morelia, with several international recognitions and awards.
If you ever find yourself in Morelia, I highly recommend staying at Hotel de la Soledad. You will find that the hotel's location is within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. Here are some of the places you must try.
My trip was very memorable; I can't wait to return and continue tasting the dishes and flavors Morelia offers.
