Places of interest in the area

How about a short hike towards the Mirador – in the early morning hours the temperatures are pleasant and the view at the cross is dreamlike.

Santa Elena is a small, typical Mexican village with small tiendas that offer the most necessary things. Always on Fridays there is fresh chicken from the grill at the village square and on Saturdays fresh vegetables and fruit from about 13.00 o’clock.

Visit a small, family-run tequila factory and taste the different varieties right from the factory. Tours must be booked a few days in advance. Let us know and we will be happy to organize it.

Atotonilco El Alto is a larger town with many stores and a small market. The delicious smell of the many restaurants and taco stands invite you to linger.

Arandas is located about 20 minutes from the RV Park. The beautiful church with the bell attached to the outside as well as the Zocola are definitely worth a visit.
