Este informe es excellente!! Mas, Mas!!! Gracias Bob.
Kenny is right again.

If you drink, don't drive (ride) SI TOMA NO MANEJE

However, when you are done riding, nothing could be finer than to toast the day's exploits in Mexico with the perfect post trip drink.

My earliest spanish phrase collection included:
"Quisiera conseguir una botella de vino tinto y unas copas, por favor" "I wish to get a bottle of red wine and some glasses, please."

El Zocalo
El Centro
La Plaza de Armas

All are terms for the "center of town" where the highest concentration of things to see and places to stay usually are.

And, of course, the associated places to eat and drink, and people watch.

If you are solo when you get to your destination town, you only need to ask a taxi driver about these terms, and you'll be led to the middle of town, or right to your hotel if you know where you are staying.

Soon, you'll be toasting your day's adventures with your traveling friends.

And many new friends that you will no doubt make that day, and every day in Mexico.

Its time to focus on the sign in Kenny's avatar. Any guesses?:
