Where to stay?

Reserve of life, fossils, corn, minerals and water.

The peaceful city of Tehuacán is the capital of a valley rich in history both human and natural. Inhabited for more than 8 thousand years, the oldest fossils of corn have been discovered here, the crop that allowed man to settle and Mesoamerican cultures to flourish. The Camino Real passed through here and the city was born and the convents, churches, markets, squares were founded.

 

The ancients already knew the properties of their mineral waters, the same ones that we continue to enjoy today. From the coexistence of Spaniards and indigenous people, an extraordinary cuisine emerged, which is celebrated every year at the Mole de Hues Festival.
But the valley has also given us the privilege of looking at eras already passed through the minerals - which are exhibited in the excellent museum located at the El Carmen Cultural Center - and the abundant fossil deposits. In this amazing region the Tehuacan-Cuicatlan Biosphere Reserve originates, an authentic refuge of biodiversity and a paradise for photographers, with its splendid desert landscapes. A magical place that exerts a powerful fascination on the traveler.
