But then, i have only been in Taxco once in my life.
Thanks for that link. You are right, it's a great thread with a lot of excellent information.
Now...does anyone know anything about Taxco?

Here is my brother's blog on our trip, which info about DF and Taxco.

And, I had my first iguana stew in Taxco a decade ago.
One of our high points on a recent trip. We got up early in the morning and caught the combi to the Grutas de Cacahuamilpa. You have plenty of time to take the tour of the cave. And the fondas outside of the cave (upstairs) are terrific. The combi comes back at around 1:00 in the afternoon to take you back to Taxco.
Details are in Frommer's, but you'll still want to check at Flecha Roja when you get there. I think I remember that we arrived at 8:30 since we didn't know the schedule, and the combi came at 9:30 or 10:00.
Now, depending on your plans...don't forget that, if you don't want to stay in Mexico City first, you can catch a first class bus directly from the airport to Cuernavaca and then continue on to Taxco from Cuernavaca. Buses leave from the airport to Puebla, Querretaro, Cuernavaca, Toluca, and maybe one or two other cities. For example if you were bussing to Oaxaca, you would grab the bus to Puebla making sure to get the one that goes to the main bus station, and then connect to Oaxaca in Puebla.

My photos aren't so good but there are a few here:
The highlight of the trip was dinner at Patricia Quintana's Izote. She is my new hero. This was in my all-time top 10.

Our three meals were eaten wedged in tables on balconies at three different restaurants. Hey, in Taxco, it's all about the view, right?
La Parroquia, on the zocalo, overlooking the church, where we just had some simple tourist fare of quesadillas and guac:
Here are more photos, including of the view.
For dinner, we ate at El Adobe on the other main square with the glorieta. (Oh my god. Driving in Taxco is worse than driving in India as far as I'm concerned. Here's a funny post about us driving to the hotel.)
El Adobo (blog report here) was pretty good. My favorite dish was this Mexican version of potato skins.
Our last meal was the worst. We were still hoping the pozole place would be open, but alas, not until 2 p.m., and we had to get out of town before then.
Do not, under any circumstances, go to Cafe Borda. It was the worst food at the most expensive price of anything in our 10 days in Mexico.
It was $35 for two breakfasts, which included cold, soggy huevos rancheros with a sauce that tasted like black pepper and a piece of ham opened from the Oscar Meyer package.
We stayed at the Hotel Victoria, which I would not recommend either. It's pretty dank. But the view was amazing.
So, to sum it up
