Incredible experiences await visitors to Mexico's extraordinary Magic Towns.


Get to Know Mexico’s Magic Towns

The Magic Towns of Mexico offer incredible experiences for travelers in search of culture, tradition, rich gastronomy, and beautiful natural environments. These are some examples of Magic Towns that travelers should not miss on their visit to Mexico.

This Magic Town, located two hours from Mexico City, combines the history of a pre-Hispanic town with the architectural and cultural richness of colonial buildings. The Church of Los Remedios is the symbolic image of this syncretism. Built above an important pyramid of Cholulteca culture, the church dominates the view of this ancient valley of Mexico.

Cholula was named a Magic Town in 2012 because it was one of the most important cities of the pre-Hispanic period. According to the legend, there are 365 churches around the city, including the Temple of San Francisco, made with the traditional pottery of Talavera, in addition to the Franciscan Ex-convent of San Gabriel, one of the oldest in the American Continent.

Tourists should not miss places besides the Holy Pre-Hispanic City, such as the Royal Chapel, the Regional Museum of Cholula, the Parish of San Pedro, and Santa Maria de Tonantzintla, fabulous examples of the Spanish colonial baroque.

Also called the Seven Colors Lagoon, Bacalar is ideal for diving and snorkeling lovers who enjoy the enormous animal and vegetable diversity of this lush jungle of Quintana Roo.

Bacalar is a city that was founded by the Mayan civilization under the name of Sian Ka'an Bakhalal. This is the gateway to the famous underwater caves of the Blue Cenote and many Mayan archeological areas of great value that the lush jungle has covered.

The area's main attractions are, in addition to the lagoon and cenote, the Fort of San Felipe, the Museum of the Pirates, the Temple of San Joaquin, and the town's Main Square, among others.
