Iglesia de Mazamitla

Reviewed By kilr0ywashere - George Town, Florida

This wonderful structure in classic style is really worth stopping by to see. One can easily see how the faithful find spiritual meaning and a worshipful attitude here. We weren't by on a Sunday but even on a Saturday afternoon people were drifting in and out, some stopping to pray, others just enjoying the majestic artwork. One interesting thing I noted is that the church finds it necessary to put a small sign "don't stop in the doorway, come on in" which tells how often people do stop to peek in the door.
If you're in the area, take a look. Spend five minutes, or spend an hour.

Cascada El Salto

Reviewed By j0shd2015 - Zacatecas, Mexico

Would have given this a five except the guys renting horses were less than honest. We paid up front and started down the trail. When we got to the entrance they informed us we had to pay a separate entrance fee and also told us we couldn't go on the same trail as the horses were taking with our kids. We had no other choice but to follow the horses. We were not leaving our kids with a complete stranger!! Not a good experience. Then we got to the bottom and they said we had 20-30 minutes at the falls. It took us 10 more minutes to hike to the falls we had time for one picture and we had to hike back up another 15-20 minutes to get back to the horses. Don't trust these guys and there horses!!

Plaza Municipal Jose Parres Arias

Reviewed By PequePerez - Toledo, Spain

Esta plaza tiene muchísimo encanto. Mires por donde mires, solo ves balcones de madera que alternan con el blanco de las Paredes y la pintura roja de algunos elementos decorativos de las casas. Ademas, preside la plaza la iglesia de Mazamitla, un edificio que a mi me recordó en alguno de sus elementos a una pagoda y que le da un toque de distinción al lugar.

Mundo Aventura Parque Ecologico de Mazamitla

Reviewed By PapaMarkie - Ajijic, Mexico

We went with a 10 and 12 year old. And the staff, which was wonderful, was able to accommodate their petite sizes.
We went on ALL of the zip lines. Only caution: after the long one you have to hike up a steep trail, though not long, to be picked up for the trip back.
The little ones were excited because they were able to ride 4 wheelers on a short track. Imagine that! A 50” 10 year old riding a 4 wheeler (and like a pro).
We walked the long suspension bridge. Great views!
As mentioned, at all times the staff was very attentive. We will happily return!
