My Recommendations

Texmelucan, from the Náhualt Tetzmoll (oaks) and Can (place). Even though nowadays there are not oaks in this place, the beautiful town could offer a great experience for everyone, take a look at the different activities that you can do when visiting it.

Colonia Ojo de Agua
Zuemi:This park is surrounding a little lagoon. There you can go on boats and feed the ducks that live there. There is also a children's play area. The water is not very clean, but the environment is very fresh because of the tall trees.

The parish of San Martín Obispo de Tours

The Baroque style parish was built in the 17th century. Inside it, you will find many chapels but be sure of watching the "monolith", a prehispanic sculpture in the outside, which, according to a legend, was there to bring people to the church, when they didn't belong to the Christian religion. The legend also says that, if the sculpture is removed, the building will fall down. (You can see the monolith in the cover photo)

Zuemi:Many people enjoy celebrating in this parish, specially wedding. My parents got married here, 21 years ago.

Ex-convent of Saint Mary Magdalene

This historical convent was built as a plan of the viceroy of New Spain. If you have the chance, go and read the historical passages about the Dieguins and Franciscans. They had established a school and a garden. The school keeps working, now as a primary school called Eufrosine Camacho Viuda de Ávila, but the space used as the garden now is a Red Cross Hospital.

San Martín Texmelucan market

If you are interested in buying fresh fruit, veggies and meat, this market is perfect because of the variety that offers.

The perfect afternoon

If you want to have fun, maybe in the weekend, I would recommend visiting "Plaza Crystal"

If you decide to go further...

You can visit this beautiful place in the limits of the town.

Image - Ex-Hacienda de Chautla
Ex-Hacienda de Chautla
Zuemi:This is an old hacienda from the 18th century, converted into a park with a lake, a castle, trails, and a forest. There is a little secret... Inside the castle, you can ask the chef to cook the fish that you have caught in the lake.

Give an opportunity to this town!

San Martin Texmelucan is a beautiful town, you can visit it anytime, just be sure of not staying out too late. Also, i would recommend visiting it on November 11th, the feast day of the parish, to see the fireworks in the night and enjoy some music.
