One of the prettier Colonial cities in Mexico is San Luis Potosi, Mexico, halfway between Mexico City and Monterrey, the last big city in Mexico before the US border in Texas. Though you can see some of Mexico’s ancient sites on a beach holiday -- Mexico is one of the most-visited countries in the world and half of its tourists go on holiday there to spend their time on the sunny beaches with possibly a day trip to the Maya temples -- visiting the inland Colonial towns and cities like the other half of Mexico's tourists gives you a better idea of the "real" Mexico.

San Luis Potosi was founded in the late sixteenth century after silver and gold were discovered there. Later, more international industrial companies opened a business in the city. These days more than seven hundred thousand people live in San Luis Potosi, often abbreviated to SLP.

The Centro Histórico (Old Town) is the area that you will want to explore in San Luis Potosi, Mexico; it's quite compact but very picturesque. There are many small squares and parks where people are hanging out and the vibe is relaxed. Because of the Old Town’s compactness it can easily be navigated by foot. If you book your San Luis Potosi, Mexico hostel in the Old Town, you will not need public transport or cabs to get around, unless you visit Parque Tangamanga or some of the sites outside the city. San Luis Potosi is a city that is as much about experiencing things as seeing sites and therefore it is recommended to book your hostel in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, for a few nights at least, though the Old Town can technically be seen in just one day. Also add an extra night at your San Luis Potosi, Mexico hostel if you are interested in hiking, as there are some hiking trails at a nearby crater and canyon.
