Ready for food bigger than your head? Exploring Puebla Mexico

Ready for food bigger than your head? Exploring Puebla Mexico

Puebla is a city famous for mole sauce, but there is so much more to this colonial city. In this Puebla Mexico vlog we discover the golden churches, giant ferris wheels, and enormous gorditas of the 4th largest city in Mexico.

This week, we packed up from Grutas Tolantongo, an amazing hot springs camping experience featuring cliffside infinity pools, caves, and a teal river. This travel day was actually a positive when we got to sample a Hidalgo state local pastry dish (and it was beyond delicious). Continuing on towards Puebla, we settled into our home for the week: Trailer Park Las Americas in nearby Chulula. This is an excellent RV park with 24 hour security, beautiful landscaping, a pool, full hookups, and great hot water for showers if you want to use their facilities. For digital nomads like us, there is strong (and consistently higher speed) WiFi and a shopping center within walking distance for most anything you need to buy. We enjoyed working poolside or under our awning for change of scenery!

In the evening, we walked over to have dinner, drinks, and some late night Jazz in Cholula. First was rooftop dining at Cus Cus Cus, where we had a wide variety of dishes including trying Chapulines (grasshoppers) for the first time! We continued over to Jazzatlan club de jazz for some (no surprise given the name) live Jazz music and cocktails. There was a small cover charge and great music from the group “Fer Harada Loops & Groove featuring Diego Carbonell.” The musicians would build and mix loops of themselves playing to create amazing harmonies and effects, quite the show and definitely a unique spin on Jazz!

Unfortunately, both Katelyn and I were fighting colds (definitely not coronavirus, just your run of the mill colds) so we stayed in for several of the days in Puebla. We did finally go out exploring a few afternoons, which means you get to join us on our journey around Puebla! We check out the city center, visit one of the most famous pottery companies, and yes eat food bigger than our heads! Welcome to Puebla!
