Aguascalientes (Hot waters in Spanish) is named after the abundance of naturally-occurring hot springs in the area. It’s about 540 km northwest of Mexico City, in the state of Aguascalientes. The city is consistently recognized as having one the highest standards of living in all of Latin America, and it’s citizens are among the most well-off in Mexico. It is also seriously underrated when it comes to attractive women.
DATING IN AGUASCALIENTES
As this is a place not often frequented by tourists, you’ll get quite a lot of positive attention here. Basic knowledge of Spanish will help your cause; some English is spoken due to the high level of foreign investment in the state/city, but, as in the case in much of central Mexico, English fluency is not as common as you might expect. Aguascalientes women are receptive and open to a fling with a foreigner, but expect a few dates before maneuvering them into the sack. The girls here aren’t as easy as other parts of Mexico and many will still live with their parents well into their 20s.

Lighter complexions than what you’d find farther south in say the Puebla or Cuernavaca, but not as light as you’d find in the major cities of Chihuahua or Sonora. Girls around 5″5 or 5″6 average? I’m not too good with height so I’m not sure.

IS AGUASCALIENTES SAFE?
Like a kitten wrapped in a bunny wrapped in a kitten; Aguascalientes is of one Mexico’s safest cities!
To get the best out of Aguascalientes, I would suggest staying for at least 2-3 weeks. If you’re doing a shotgun-style backpacking trip where you just hit and quit cities in a day or two, I wouldn’t stay a stopover in Aguas is a must-do…unless it’s during the San Marcos Fair. There are better places for partying nearby (see Guanajuato). Overall, it’s a nice, clean and safe city and a good place to put down roots for awhile.
