GO FOR A LEISURELY STROLL
Stroll through the corridors that converge at the kiosk in the central square, and enjoy a quiet walk through the streets of the village. Admire the haciendas and the beautiful Porfirian façades that you will find every step along the way. 

Walk under the willows along the riverbank and discover the row of houses that belonged to former railway officials lined up next to the old train station.

BE TRANSPORTED TO THE MENNONITE WORLD 
Step into the Juárez neighborhood and be transported to the Mennonite world with Victorian houses from the early 19th century. Visit the fertile organic gardens and enjoy the vegetable and dairy products offered for sale.

TASTE TRADITIONAL GASTRONOMY
Enter one of the cozy restaurants downtown, order a viper sotol appetizer while you enjoy a delicious abigeo stew prepared with dried meat, red chile peppers, and refried beans, or some pit barbecue. For dessert, enjoy the canned peaches and apples that you will want to take home to share with your friends and family. 

ENJOY THE HOSPITALITY
Enjoy a greeting from Spencer MacCallum and his wife, Emi. They are Mata-Ortiz pottery promoters who have restored and opened some of the village's houses to the public so you can experience with original furniture and feel the passage of history.
