MAZAMITLA Pueblo Magico | Day Trip
There are nine small towns in the Mexican state of Jalisco that were appointed pueblos magicos or magic towns and we are on a mission to see every single one of them and share the experience with you so that we hopefully inspire you to visit them as well.
In today’s YouTube video (linked above), I’m super happy to share some footage from our recent day trip to Mazamitla, a beautiful and quiet mountain town located less than 2 hours away from the busy metropolitan area of Guadalajara. Hidden between the pine forests of the Sierra del Tigre at more than 2,000 meters elevation, Mazamitla is the magic town where tourists and locals alike choose to escape to when they wanna leave behind the hustle and bustle of the city in search of a weekend of fresh air, good food and nature activities. My personal recommendation is if you find yourself in Guadalajara, to definitely plan to checkout Mazamitla even if it’s just for a day trip, like we did; it’s absolutely worth it! The town central plaza is truly magical and there are a lot of good restaurants where you can enjoy a delicious breakfast/lunch while overlooking the park and the gorgeous red and white towers of the San Cristobal Church, a very unique structure, and a rare example of Christian architecture with Asian influence in Mexico.
We arrived early on a Saturday morning and decided to get breakfast at Mestizo, where we were very lucky to score the best table available, on the second floor. The place wasn’t very busy when we arrived, but I swear it filled up as soon as we sat down, so we felt that we got in at the perfect moment. Their Chilaquiles con Carne and the Chicken Torta in Salsa Verde were to die for, so we definitely recommend this place not only for the amazing food, but also for the great service and the incredible views.
We ended our meal with a perfect cup of Cafe de Olla and took a few Instagram worthy photos with the church in the background. After breakfast, we took a stroll down the cobblestone streets, checked out the artisan stores, flew our drone for the aerial shots and grabbed a sweet, refreshing nieve in a cone. There was a joyful, peaceful vibe all around that we really enjoyed a lot and I can definitely see ourselves returning to Mazamitla in the future. But enough about our trip.
