Ah Puebla–this city and state are so much the essence of old Mexico and yet so undiscovered by today’s travelers. Poblanos (people who inhabit the place) can be a bit distant and the culture in potent….which makes travel there a delight.
Travel to all of Mexico is so convenient for US people- same time zone and great airline connections. (Interjet, Aeromexico, Volaris, and others have flights to Mexico from many major US cities.) But Puebla is one of the easiest places to get to in all of Mexico. From the Mexico City airport, you can be in Puebla City in about two hours.
