Xicotepec de Juarez

Ancestral rituals in the green scenery of the mountain.


Xicotepec has the honor of being the capital of Mexico for three days in 1920, while the autopsy was practiced to the recently assassinated Venustiano Carranza. Since then, few events disturb the peace of this small magical town, located in the Sierra de Puebla. A stroll through its large Zocalo takes you to discover a garden that looks like the orchard, surrounded by picturesque portals impregnated with exquisite coffee smell emanating from the cafes. Look up to discover the monumental Virgen de Guadalupe protecting the peace of the this town.

From the ceremonial center of the Xochipila Xicotepec party arrives for the shortest night. Shamans, witches and all ethnicities of Puebla gather to honor San Juan Techachalco-the god Xochipilli- in a great celebration with dancing and music,

with the bright color of marigolds.

Deep green mountains covered by mist, clothing this magical town. Get into deep gorges such as La Garganta del Diablo. Feel the adrenaline as you slide down zip lines, or tests the white waters of the San Marcos River. An ideal place to enjoy the traditions in the countryside.


To the north with Jalpan, on the south with Tlaola, on the east with Zihuateutla and Juan Galindo and on the west to Tlacuilotepec.
