Poets and Huichols in the colorful colonial Tepic
BE DELIGHTED BY A TRADITIONAL ZACAHUIL
Its 2 pm and it’s the Sunday market. Be sure to try a zacahuil in the tianguis - a tamal that is almost two meters long made of dough, chinese chili and pork or chicken meat. It is cooked up to twelve hours in clay ovens and can be shared with a hundred people. Try it with a delicious local hot coffee.
YOU CAN’T MISS A HUAPANGUERO SUNDAY
Come to the Miguel Hidalgo Garden, where the typical Huapangueada is carried out. For the last several years, this weekly Sunday celebration has been trying to bring back this traditional dance, where everyone dances to the rhythm of the trios with carnival masks.
Feel how the temperature elevates with the boots and shoes on the floor. Take out your camera, or even join the the groups of children and women dancing. At some point you will feel like in a carnival, due to the mood of those who come here to enjoy – even people from other towns come – the noisy Huapango.
DO YOUR SHOPPING IN THE TIANGUIS
Take a break from exploring and dancing, and enjoy the market while you hum some violin pieces. For local goods, purchase handmade crafts from San Pedro Huitzilico, where you can find amber color candles, seed jewelry, clay figurines and mulberry wood utensils.
