Hello to all visitors, today we're glad to present a little town that we visit a year ago in Mexico: MAZAMITLA.
Mazamitla (La Capital De La Montaña) is a town and municipality of the Mexican state of Jalisco. It is located 124 km south of Guadalajara in the Southeast Region and is a popular resort destination for travelers from Guadalajara. Its name comes from the Nahuatl and means "place where arrows to hunt deer are made"; its territorial extension is 177.18 km2. According to Count II Population and Housing, the municipality has 11671 inhabitants who are devoted mainly to the tertiary sector. For its natural beauty is considered by the federal Secretariat of Tourism as a Pueblo Mágico.I've found a "Little guide" to get there if you're going from Guadalajara. (thanks to John And Susy)
How to Get There
From Guadalajara, take highway 54 toward Colima for 12 kilometers and turn off onto highway 15, signposted “Morelia.” After 20 kilometers, follow the Jiquilpan sign and keep going another 33 kilometers to the Mazamitla turnoff, just past Tuxcueca. Now go uphill 41 kilometers southeast to Mazamitla.
In town, pass Morelos Street and turn right on Galeana which becomes Manuel Cardenas. Go south until the street ends. Take a right and an immediate left to get onto J. Chavarria which takes you past Monteverde Enterprises to the entrance of Fraccionamiento Los Cazos. Inside, turn right at the first fork and then bear left. The waterfall is three kilometers southwest of the entrance, at N19°53’35.0”W103°02’29.3”. Total driving time from Guadalajara to Los Cazos gate: two hours and 20 minutes

The meaning of "Pueblo Magico", It's the way in mexico call to all those "little town" that preserve their original costumes, food, architecture and stuff... they're magic because it doesn't matter if we are living in a tech-era, they keep using horses to go to their school.
