Masiaca

Navojoa

The culture of the Mayos is still alive and one of the places you can visit to learn their language, their gastronomy, their crafts, their beliefs and customs is Masiaca. The community has organized itself to receive travelers so that they can experience their daily routine, listen to their legends and taste their best dishes.

Thus, in the town's dining room you can try caldo huacavaqui (with meat, chickpeas, chili and vegetables), uniwaka (beans with meat), jipoco (a typical wheat and piloncillo drink), coyotas (sweet empanadas with different fillings), el pan de mujer (women's bread) or pineapple tamales.

Then, the artisan tianguis (flea market) offers leather products such as belts, huaraches, purses, saddles and even cell phone cases. There are also wood carvings and masks of matachines, deer and pascolos that are usually used in the town's festivities. The women offer embroidery and textiles made on a waist loom, as well as jams, clay pots, baskets and paintings.

On the other hand, it is possible to talk with the neighbors of Masiaca to learn about their uses, customs and beliefs in relation to their weddings, funerals, their gods and their celebrations.
