The fusion of races in the state of Guerrero is an attraction for culturally spirited travelers. You can learn the traditions of the various ethnic groups that live in and around Chilpancingo, many of them engaged in the production of art and crafts.
Ixcateopan de Cuauhtemoc is near Chilpancingo, which is a community that witnessed the birth, and that probably holds the remains of Cuauhtemoc, the greatest warrior who ever lived in Mexico, who fought the first major battle to defend Mexico against the onslaught of the Spanish.
In Santa Maria Oapan, Ameyaltepec and Xalitla, Nahua populations located between the cities of Iguala and Chilpancingo have specialized in the development of painting on amate bark paper.
Its commercial success has been such that the adjoining communities of Maxela, San Juan and Ahualicán and Ahuehuepan have been devoted to this folkloric art.
Various important ethnic groups live in Guerrero, whose linguistic and cultural expressions have given the region a very special image.
Mixtecs, Nahuas, Amuzgos and Tlapanecos share the land with a large number of mestizos (mixed race) and other groups of African descent.
Thus, the rare mosaic of the municipalities must be added to the more than 20 different languages distributed in the seven regions, which are the Mountains, North, Central, Acapulco, Costa Chica, Costa Grande and Tierra Caliente.
