Tapijulapa Pueblo Mágico, (Magic Town) is a fertile town located between the Oxolotan and Amatan rivers.  


TOUR THE DOWNTOWN AREA


Enjoy walking through a village of narrow cobblestone streets with white houses, red tile roofs and flowerpots. Explore the central square, a nice esplanade with a kiosk and trees. Continue towards the alleys that lead behind the high Casino del Pueblo building. Learn about the House Museum of the Former Governor Tomas Garrido Canabal and its wonderful collection of zoque archeological pieces and regional handcrafts.


LEARN ABOUT THE SANTIAGO APOSTOL CHURCH


Take a narrow staircase that will lead you to the Santiago Apostol Church atrium. This church was erected in the seventeenth century as a visiting chapel for the Oxolotan convent nearby. It is a very beautiful, modest building that has a very long architectural plan. It is located at the top of the hill crowning the entire town while being surrounded by palm trees.


SEE THE ARTISANS WORK


As you descend through the stairways, you will find several artisan workshops where they work with wood and weave wicker products. Visit the artisans and ask them to share with you  their techniques and knowledge.


TASTE TRADITIONAL FOOD


Enjoy the small restaurants of the main square along the banks of the Almandro River. Try traditional dishes such as tamales, pejelagarto, and tortas de iguana, among other local delicacies.
