Activities

Visit Las Piedrotas and Valley of the Enigmas

An area of incredible natural beauty about a ten-minute drive from Tapalpa town. If you don’t have a car when you’re in town, or don’t fancy driving, the tourist ‘train’ stops here, you can hire a quad bike or go as part of a tour. Once in, You can pay to join a group and explore the area on horseback, you can rent go karts or even get into a zipline.

Visit the churches in the town center

At the heart of any colonial Mexican town lies its main church, and in Tapalpa’s central square, two versions built 300 years apart face each other: the Temple of San Antonio, erected by Franciscan settlers in 1650, and the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, begun in 1950 and, most unusually, made almost entirely of red brick.

Market shopping and eating

Tapalpa does not have a covered central Mercado, but a daily outdoor market showcases local crafts and delicacies. A few stalls selling tacos, churros, and other foods are built into the side of the main church and stay open late.

Visit Eko Park

The park offers adventure for all tastes. The nature that surrounds the region allows the practice of climbing, rappelling, zip lines, hiking, camping and the option of sleeping in a teocalli, a bedroom built of superadobe in the shape of a honeycomb or igloo. Another option is the Via Ferrata in the mountains and caves of the forest, on the banks of the Tigre River.
