Metepec is located just south of the city of Toluca in the state of Mexico just a short driving distance from Mexico City. Metepec is well known for its pottery items specifically the Arbol de la vida "Tree of Life" which are evident all over the city.
The city is very colorful and welcoming. You get a very relaxing feeling when you walk around its cobblestoned streets while you enjoy the art, people and smell the aroma of traditional Mexican food.

One of many examples of Arbol de la vida around the city. This one es dedicated to Human Rights.
Good food is plentiful by way of street vendors. Fresh Mango slices with a dab of Valentina is the perfect treat.
The city if filled with great choices to eat. We picked restaurante Ay Dolores located Miguel Hidalgo No. 93 Barrio Del Espiritu Santo. Facebook Link In addition to the great food, the restaurant features amazing folk art which makes this place a "must see".
