Plateros Vacation Packages
When it comes to getting the most from your time here, remember that Plateros is just the beginning; Zacatecas has been blessed with a treasure-trove of natural sights, cities and towns. You may also wish to check out Rio Frio, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the north, and Zacatecas 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the northwest.
Travelers looking for places of quiet contemplation, will love the chance to visit the area's monasteries. Zacatecas is a good destination for visitors who get excited about gardens.
If your picture of a great break is challenging your abilities in unique natural environments, then join one of the horse riding or mountain climbing experiences this region has to offer.
There's no nicer approach to get to the heart of an area than tasting the food from the region. Do as the locals do and try pozole rojo (corn and chili soup) or pollo alcamparrado (chicken with capers). Those who who are not quite satisfied, can order ates (fruit jellies), the perfect way to complete your Zacatecas culinary experience.
True travel involves so much more than simply seeing the sights, it's also about the words, stories and ideas of a region. Your days in Plateros will become infinitely richer if you take the time to practice some everyday phrases and sayings in Spanish. "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" is the Spanish way to say "Would you like to dance with me?" "Este caballero pagará por todo" means "This gentleman will pay for everything"
At the end of your adventure in Zacatecas, you'll be sure to bid this place a fond "Adiós" But be comforted by the fact that you'll be heading home with special photos, momentos and memories that you'll cherish for a lifetime.
