Last summer, somewhere between graduating from university and committing to a 9 to 5 lifestyle for the next 5 years I decided to get out.

Cosas Mágicas: A Guide to Tepoztlán, Mexico

•••
What makes a destination truly magical? It is a combination of many things: natural beauty, culture, history, climate, locals, and that feeling that you just can’t put a name on. Tepoztlán, a small town south of Mexico City, is all of these things and more. The Mexican government recognized this and, rightfully so, bestowed  upon Tepoztlán  the title of “Pue[...]
