Toluca COAWhen you are driving through Toluca, it doesn’t seem like much of a stop. The highways lead you through industrial areas where a lot of traffic and frustration is on everyone’s minds.
But Toluca can charm. Like many Mexican places it has a Centro core that is filled with colonial architecture, plazas, small parks, art and marketplaces. It is well worth exploring
