Volkswagen Beetle in Taxco, Guerrero, Mexico

The town of Taxco, in the state of Guerrero, Mexico, is already magical. Its architecture, history, and culture is extraordinary. But when you go there and see nothing but Volkswagen Beetles (“Bochos”) serving as taxis, the magic goes unparalleled. The taxis wonder throughout the tiny streets and allies, up and down, like actual beetles, fast and determined. (LFP. 2021).
