Aguascalientes is a city in the centre of Mexico known for its charming historic Spanish architecture, an abundance of museums, and natural hot springs (its name translates literally to ‘hot waters’). Not to be confused with Agua Calientes in Peru, this Mexican city was once a powerhouse of silver mines, but today is a handy central location between major locations such as Mexico City and Guadalajara. You’ll be able to make your way around this sprawling city when you pick up an Aguascalientes Airport car rental.
Aguascalientes’ central location also makes it easy to take advantage of your set of wheels for a road trip in Mexico. It’s roughly a 2.5-hour drive east to the city of San Luis Potosi, where you can see more Spanish history and explore the local ceramics and silverware shops that the city is famous for. Or, take a more extended one-way road trip west, passing through Guadalajara on your way to the beach resort of Puerto Vallarta on the coast.
