The tour of Talpa and Mascota was the highlight of our trip to Mexico. Cervando is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic person, and seems to know nearly everything about the history, geography and culture of the region. It was truly enjoyable to listen to his commentaries. The villages of Talpa and Mascota are beautiful places, and the road leading to them is stunning. For our family, being able to visit one of the most famous Marian sanctuaries of Mexico was an unforgettable experience.
