Where to stay?

The heart of the Sierra.

Between deep gorges and exuberant vegetation lies Cuetzalan, a magical town that over the years has conserved with great vigor the indigenous traditions that make it unique in the region.

Surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, caves, and a myriad of natural attractions, this town is the place where man transforms into a bird and flies with the ritual of the Voladores or the quetzal dance, the negritos and their masked clowns.

Its stone streets and ancestral heritage seem to come from a fairy tale, and its semi-detached façades are proof that the time in Cuetzalan has not stopped for its visitors.

If you visit Cuetzalan on any weekend, you can visit the Sunday market, which runs from the large square to the streets of the municipality where traditional barter is still practiced among people from the different communities of the municipality.

Coffee, embroidery, flowers, exquisite food and a great human warmth are part of what awaits you in this Magical Town.
