Ultimate Guide to Travel Magical Towns in Mexico

What is a “Pueblo Magico”? or a Magic Town in Mexico?

It is a designation from the Mexican Federal Government awarded to small towns or ports that meet the “Pueblos Magicos eligibility guidelines. Small towns, villages or ports submit their candidacy and if they meet all the requisites, they receive the designation. It is unique to Mexico. It is an added value to the location in terms of positioning them in the map of Pueblos Magicos and they receive a special tourism attraction promotion.

A Magical Town is a place with symbols and legends.

Populated with a history that in many cases have been the scene of transcendent events for Mexico, they are places that show the national identity in each of its corners, with a magic that emanates from its attractions; visiting them is an opportunity to discover the charm of Mexico.

The Magical Towns Program contributes to revaluing a group of populations of the country that have always been in the collective imagination of the nation and that represent fresh and varied alternatives for national and foreign visitors.

As of March 26, 2021, in Mexico there are 132 Magical Towns and, in this blog, we present our first one.
