Cuetzalan del Progreso

Immersion in the soul of the Sierra


On the mountainside, through valleys of fertile terraces, forests of giant ferns inhabited by fantastic creatures, trails leading to idyllic waterfalls, caves that plunge into the underworld and pools of incredibly clear water, stands the magical town of Cuetzalan. The village where the man is transformed into a bird and flies. The people who dance with their quetzals, their negritos and masked clowns, the one clinging to the mountain with roots of stone. Nearby, in the archaeological site of Yohualichan, the legacy of the ancestors remains in stone.

Cuetzalan clings to the mountain with roots of stone.

White and red houses, with thick walls and wide eaves. For its steep streets extending from the large main square you can visit the Sunday , street market, a survivor of those "market days" in earlier times.

Days of barter, trade, and contact between communities. On Sundays, men dressed in white and women also in white or black, or blue, depending on the town they come from- come to his ancestral appoinment in Cuetzalan. Coffe, embroidery, flowers, sandals and food in a rush that only gets interrupted with the show of the flying men. A very magical moment.
