Piedra Blanca (White Rock)

San Blas

In front of the San Blas dock you can see a rock formation that juts out from the sea, it is known as Piedra Blanca or Haramara and it is a sacred site for the Huichols. According to the Wixarika cosmogony, it was the first solid object born on earth, when it was still very young and there was nothing but boiling water in the world.

Therefore, it is believed that in the rock is the origin of life and that it is inhabited by the goddess Haramara.

Because she represents the physical form of one of the most important deities of the Huichol culture, during the year there are pilgrimages to worship the stone and every May 20th there are baptisms and rituals. Therefore, jícaras, lighted candles, and arrows are appreciated as offerings.

The formation is located in front of Playa del Rey, with blue and relaxing waters. Nearby is the San Blas lighthouse, which can be climbed to its 14 meters ( 46 feet) to watch the sunset, from where the views are spectacular.
