After a leisurely breakfast in the hotel and a rather unsavory check-out process, we left for Durango, arriving about 3:00. We found a great room with two double beds, a kitchenette and sofa for 350 pesos, right in El Centro Histórico—Hotel Durango. They also had really affordable cenas, breakfasts and room service, though we didn’t try any.
We took a walk around. The architecture was really pretty cool, and it was nice to know there is another fairly major city not so very far from home; will be much closer once the new highway opens.
The city was putting on free 45-minute trolley car tours. That means that some of these photos are taken through the glare of window glass, but they’ll give you an idea of what Durango looks like if you haven’t been there.
