One travels to get to know other cultures and traditions, for business, to clear one's mind and create new memories, but also for religious reasons. This is shown by the thousands of visitors who every day parade through the Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico City; this same phenomenon happens in places like San Juan de los Lagos, Jalisco.

The type of climate of San Juan de los Lagos provides the conditions for the plants that flourish most in its soil are cactus and thorn bushes; it also has quarry and marble deposits.
