Walking through the enchanting town, you’re sure to come across the organic coffee factory dating back to the XX Century. Here you’ll learn the nature of these grains and follow its elaboration process.

Hungry? Step into one of the restaurants serving up the local cuisine: Quesadillas, Gorditas (Thick corn fried tortilla filled with black refried beans and toped with fresh cheese and homemade salsa), Chile con Carne, Carne Asada, and the best handmade tortillas you’ve ever had.

Once night falls, sit back and enjoy a delicious café de olla (cinnamon-infused coffee). Don’t forget travel with a light sweater or sweatshirt if planning a trip in Winter.
