Mexico is blessed with dozens of small towns that have met the government’s strict standards and earned the right to be called Pueblos Magicos (magic towns0. If you’re only going to visit one Pueblo Magico we recommend Tapalpa. Here’s why.
Is this the best Pueblo Magico in Mexico?
Tapalpa is located about two hours from Guadalajara at an altitude that ensures cool weather even when Guadalajara is sweltering. Tapalpa is a compact town that still bustles with energy. It’s also absolutely clean, and gorgeous.
Tapalpa also has one of the best elote (corn) vendors we’ve come across in all of Mexico. Hiking trails to roaring waterfalls, a field of enormous boulders weirdly jumbled about and a charming nearby lake round out the picture.
