We were going to Puebla!

Most of the time in Mexico, one can find hotels around the Plaza in the center of the city. This is excellent!

You are right in town for the action, the restaurants that always surround the plaza, the church and the relaxing Plaza itself.

Billy checked the map of Puebla, and found Hotel Santiago.

We arrived at the airport in Puebla and purchased a taxi ride to get to the Historico Centro in town. A thirty minute ride from the airport, the price was 350Pesos.

The green rectangle in the center of this map is the Plaza in Puebla. As you can see, the hotel that Billy chose, Hotel Santiago, is right next to it! just a stone's throw away.

Hotel Check-in, Hotel Santiago, Puebla, Mexico

Check-in at the hotel was a bit of a runaround, with the desk requiring us to wash our hands at the portable sink in the lobby. Then we had to put gel on them while they took our temperature.

At the desk we had to show our ID, pay in advance, and sign the entrance form in 3 different places. Then we received our keys, the remote control for the TV, and the WiFi code.

The beautiful roof top view at Hotel Santiago

While I was getting our room settled, Billy ran upstairs to get a shot of the Church from the roof top terrace since the lighting was perfect.

Behind the maroon sun umbrella that you see here was Attico 303 Skybar, where we had dinner that first night.

Puebla Cathedral at night, Puebla, Mexico

Cathedral of Puebla, Mexico





The Cathedral at night is a glorious site.

In 1862, there was a huge battle here in front of this church called The Battle of Puebla. The French tried to establish themselves in this part of Mexico because Europe was interested in Mexico's silver mines. But Mexican forces defeated the French army on May 5, which became the "Cinco de Mayo" reference we in the States hear about.
