The Guru Difference

Mexico Guru is a website created by two female Mexico lovers, a travel writer and a webmaster. We live in Mexico and have been exploring the country, between the two of us, for more than 50 years! Unlike many travel sites these days, we actually visit the places we write about. Stick with the Guru for the real scoop.

Se ven en los edificios coloniales y en los modernos. (Ceramic or glazed tiles called tejas are used on the roofs of houses, churches, shops … really any kind of construction. They are seen on colonial and modern buildings.)
